Beavers are the largest rodent found in North America. Adults can weigh up to 65 pounds and measure from 24 to 36 inches, plus a tail of 12 to 18 inches. With their webbed hind feet, waterproof fur and unique paddle-shaped tail, beavers are well-adapted to living in an aquatic environment. Calls for help with beaver removal generally come from homes and businesses that have small streams running through their property.
A trademark activity of beavers is their reaction to potential danger while swimming. When alarmed, they will dive quickly and slap the water with their broad tails. Also, beavers skillfully cutdown trees and build dams across bodies of water to create peaceful still water areas for making lodges.
Beavers tend to live around small rivers and streams and actually contribute to keeping the ecosystem functioning properly for other creatures. However, many concerns can result from their behavior, resulting in a need for beaver removal experts.
Beavers are considered a nuisance for two primary reasons: tree cutting and dam building. Tree cutting is undesirable to landowners who want to protect their trees. Dam building is a more serious matter, resulting in flooding forest and farm lands, plugged culverts and the washout of roads. Both of these issues can lead to very serious problems, so implementing a beaver removal plan early can proactively eliminate potential issues later on.
