How To Identify Beaver Problems
Beavers can easily be identified by their large size, glossy red-brown fur, beady eyes, small ears and large orange incisors. Not to mention their large, flattened, paddle-like tail. Beavers are common throughout all parts of the U.S. Beavers occasionally growl, hiss or scream but frequently slap the water surface with their flat tails as a warning sign. While nocturnal or crepuscular by nature, Beavers are sometimes seen during the day.
Beaver habitat is almost anywhere there is a source of water year-round. You can also identify beavers by the dams they build. Beavers build dams to modify the environment to their liking. Dam building is often stimulated by running water. Beavers are adaptable and will use whatever materials are available to construct dams, such as fencing material, bridge planking, crossties, rocks, wire, and other metal, wood and fiber materials. The beaver is unparalleled at dam building and can build dams on fast-moving streams as well as slow-moving ones. They also build lodges and bank dens, depending on the available habitat.
Beavers are not known to enter homes but will invade property and waterways in search of a good location to build their family den for shelter. Our beaver removal professionals will assess the problem and take the necessary steps to not only remove the beaver or beavers from your property or place of business but also repair damaged areas and reduce the possibility of future beaver invasion.
