BEAVER CONTROL

We specialize in full management plans for beaver conflicts, offering trapping and habitat modification. Culvert protective fences and pond-leveling pipes are often cost-effective and long-term solutions to beaver-related flooding.

Trapping Combined With Flow Devices

Beaver damage can be extensive and have been estimated at a cost of $3 million to $5 million dollars annually for timber loss, crop losses, roads, dwellings, flooded property and other damage. In some states, tracts of bottomland hardwood timber up to several thousand acres in size may be lost because of Beaver. Some unusual cases observed include state highways flooded because of Beaver ponds, reservoir dams destroyed by bank den burrows collapsing, and train derailments caused by continued flooding and burrowing.

Housing developments have been threatened by Beaver dam flooding, and thousands of acres of cropland and young pine plantations have been flooded by Beaver dams. Road ditches, drain pipes, and culverts have been stopped up so badly that they had to be dynamited out and replaced. Some bridges have been destroyed because of Beaver dam-building activity.

In addition, Beavers threaten human health by contaminating water supplies with Giardia. Identifying damage generally is not difficult. Signs include dams, dammed-up culverts, bridges, or drain pipes resulting in flooded lands, timber, roads, and crops, cut-down or girdled trees and crops, lodges and burrows in ponds, reservoir levees, and dams. In large watersheds, it may be difficult to locate bank dens. However, the limbs, cuttings, and debris around such areas as well as dams along tributaries usually help pinpoint the area.
