Beaver Control and Removal

The Beaver

Beavers are a primarily nocturnal, large, semi-aquatic rodent. They are the second largest rodent in the world. They are known for creating their habitat they live in by building dams on rivers and streams, and then building their homes in the resulting pond. Beavers also build canals to float building materials that are difficult to haul over land, and also to transport their food. The North American beaver population was once more than 60 million, but as of 1988 was 6–12 million. This population decline is the result of extensive hunting for fur, for glands used as medicine and perfume, and because the beavers' harvesting of trees and flooding of waterways can interfere with other land uses. So if you live in a more rural area, and are experiencing unusual flooding, you may have a beaver problem. The flooding caused by beaver dams can result in additional problems including property damage, flooding of roadways, and loss of trees and other vegetation.

Do you have an beaver problem?

If your property is experiencing flooding it may be related to a beaver taking up residence in or near your area. Beavers will also build canals in order to travel and transport wood, and build dams in streams to make a pond. Beavers primarily eat bark and the soft wood under the bark, called cambium. Beavers often live in family units of around eight members so if you see one beaver there may be others nearby.

Our beaver removal services:

  • The best way to get rid of a beaver problem is trapping and removal. There are several different types of beaver traps, of which none are really a do-it-yourself type of trap. Setting these beaver traps can be complex and the trap's location must be subtle to be effective. Experience matters when dealing with this large member of the rodent family.
  • Beaver proofing service is recommended after all of the beavers have been removed from your property. One of our professionals can give you an estimate of the scope and cost of beaver proofing your property to prevent future incidents.
