What You Need To Know About Minks

The Mink has become widely inaugurated throughout the UK and their population is continuously growing. Minks are carnivorous and live on a wide variety of animals found in and near water. However, they are adaptable feeders and will as such eat a variety of other prey including rabbits and birds. Minks are extremely effective predators and given the chance, they will kill more than what they can carry back to their dens and eat.

Minks spend the majority of their time in their dens, eating, grooming and sleeping. Mink are a leading factor in the obliteration of the water vole population because of their ability to follow their prey down their burrows. They are a focal predator of a lot of the inherent wildlife and as such need to be contained at every opportunity.

Otters are generally bigger than Minks (twice the size), they are chocolate brown with a creamy colour on their chin/chest area and they are habitually nocturnal. You will not often see Otters in family groups. Minks, in comparison, are a darker brown (almost black) colour, smaller and furrier than Otters.

Trapping is undoubtedly the most appropriate method for managing and removing mink. Of the two trapping options; spring trapping or live capture in cages, Protec Pest Control believes in utilizing the live capture method so that non-targeted animals can be released intact if they accidentally become ensnared in the trap. Mink are exceptionally inquisitive and cannot resist inspecting tunnels, which provides an opportunity to control them and inhibit them from colonizing a specific territory through trapping.

The traps need to be checked twice a day, or at a minimum once a day. Non-targeted species caught in the traps need to be released back into the wild. It is imperative that only profession pest control technicians undertake the trapping and dispatch of the Mink once they have been captured.
