Overall effectiveness category Awaiting assessment
Number of studies: 0

Sniffer dogs can reportedly be used to detect and remove both red-eared terrapins Trachemys scripta and their eggs (Bringsøe 2006). Therefore, it is possible that sniffer dogs can be used to reduce or eradicate local invasive populations.
