Beavers (Castor Canadensis) are the largest rodent in North America and the second largest rodent in the world. Beavers can weigh over 80 lbs. These large rodents are herbivores, which means they eat primarily plant material. Beavers, like Canadian geese, mate for life. Beavers mate during the month of February and after a 110 day gestation period, 1-4 baby beavers are born in May. Baby beavers are able to swim after about 24 hours. After living with their mother for about 2 winters, the young beaver will set off to find its own territory.
Beavers are primarily nocturnal which means they will be mostly active at night. They mostly eat cambium, which is the bark and the softer wood under the barn on trees. Beavers are very territorial but will usually head for water when threatened. They will also smack their tails on the water, which makes a loud sound and lets other beavers know there is danger. These behaviors often irritate property owners and result in beaver removal.
Beavers have certain behaviors that require beaver removal. Beavers cause damage to trees by using them as a food source. They also divert water with their lodges which can cause damage to nearby properties. Beavers also like to build their dams on docks which can sink a dock with all the heavy wood.
Giardiasis a popular disease (also known as beaver fever) that can be transmitted to humans in rare cases through ingesting water that beavers live in.
HOW TO GET RID OF BEAVERS:
The only proven method for beaver removal is through trapping, habitat modification, and exclusion. Beavers will not respond to repellents, strobe lights, loud music, mothballs, or ammonia. We have traveled to many properties where these beaver removal methods have failed. Covering up a beaver burrow will not do any good; they will just dig around it.
