How to Get Rid of Otters in the Fish Pond
Otters love water and they love fish. They are also playful and curious animals who like to investigate things in their environment. So you do not need to be surprised to find an otter or two inspecting your lawn or your garden one fine day. Especially if you have a fish pond in your garden, it is going to attract a lot of attention from the otters. The otter may even try to fish for food in your ornamental fish pond. You may not want to tolerate the playfulness of the otter and want to get rid of it. You could use lemon grass to keep them away from your pond and even your garden. Insect repellent may also work at times to keep the otters away. Making a huge and sudden noise when you spot the otters is also sure to scare them and drive them away, leaving you to enjoy your fish pond in peace.

How to Get Rid of Otters in the Boat
Otters live around water near river and streams. People often visit these areas to watch the playful otters enjoying themselves. Sometimes, it may happen that the otter might decide to pay you a visit, on your boat! People often like to go on boat rides and the boat owners keep them neatly tied near the docks. Sometimes, an adventurous otter or two may decide to get onto a boat and explore the place. One other motivation for climbing on board may be because of the food, especially if the boat is a fishing boat. The otter does not know if there is any fish on board or not. As long as it can smell the fish, it is not going to be kept away. To get rid of otters you’re your boat or keep them away when you are not around, you can use otter repellent on your boat. Several commercial repellents for rodents are available on the market that you can use effectively.

How to Get Rid of Otters in the Garden
Otters often enter suburban neighborhoods when their natural habitats are cleared away to make roads, factories or newly planned housing areas. They may enter upon neighborhoods and even invade your lovely garden. Otters like moist and wet places; so if you have just watered the plants in your garden, then it is going to be very tempting and inviting for the otters. In order to get rid of the otters from your garden, you can sue netting to protect your garden. Otters are large and strong animals so you would need a very strong and large fence which may take away from the aesthetic appeal of your house. Sue a wire netting instead to keep the otters away while allowing air and sunlight into your garden. The wire netting should be strong enough to keep the otters away from your garden and can be purchased from any local hardware store.

How to Get Rid of Otters in the Trash
Otters are playful water-loving animals and can be a lot of fun to watch at play. Sometimes, otters may encroach upon residential neighborhoods in search of adventure or food. If you live close to a pond, lake or the riverside, you may frequently have seen otters strolling around the neighborhood often causing both interest and irritation. Otters have been known to sneak into homes and upset trash can while rummaging for left over vegetables or other food. Otters are large and powerful animals and it can be easy to feel intimidated by their energetic activity. However, you can still get rid of otters trashing up your yard. One way of doing this is to play a noisy recording when the otters are around. The noise is sure to scare them away. When you repeat the routine a couple of times, they are more than likely to stay away from your trash.
