Beavers are an active problem for many property owners in New York and New Jersey. They love to chew through trees and create dams, which can lead to significant property damage. Beaver removal is essential to protecting your property and limiting the damage they can cause. Below, we will discuss what beavers can do to your property.

Beaver Dams and Tree Damage

Beavers have an instinctive need to build dams. If you have a stream or other moving water source on your property, beavers may look to block it off. To create a dam, a beaver will use its powerful teeth to chew through trees and fallen logs. Then, they gather and move the wood to the water. They may also use mud, leaves, sticks, and other debris to strengthen their dams. Beaver dams can lead to changes in the landscape and the flow of water on a property. Felled trees can also cause property damage, and lead to erosion. Pooled water from damas can also be breeding grounds for mosquitos and other pests. Overall, it can lead to flooding, changes to food and water for other life downstream, and changes in migration patterns for other animals.

Acting Fast With Beaver Removal

Generally, you must act fast to limit the damage the beavers can cause. The longer you wait to call a beaver removal specialist, the more damage they can cause. If beavers have time to establish a dam, your property can be subject to flooding damage and more.

Hire a Humane Beaver Removal Specialist

It is important to call a humane beaver removal specialist to handle these animals. As fur-bearing animals, they are a protected species, and are illegal to kill without a license, and only during certain months. Because of this, humane removal is the best way to handle beaver removal year-round.
