The Beaver

Beaver trapping removal services are one of our major outside trapping services. Beaver control makes up for about 75% of the outdoor trapping, both in subdivisions, and farmland. Beaver cause many problems on streams, rivers, ponds, lakes, spillways, and culverts. Culvert blocking/ blockage from beaver stuffing it up with chewed down trees from your yard, and packing mud with the chewed down trees into your culvert pipe. We can trap those beaver out, remove the beaver from the property, clean out the spillways, dams, and dens, and build a beaver blocker, deterrent fence around the blocked culvert pipe to stop the beaver from blocking the culvert pipe in the future. Beaver also build dams around properties, we trap the beaver out of the area, then open the dams, and create a pipe that beaver are unable to block off. This lets the water flow evenly, with the beaver still in the area. They can build as many beaver dams as they want, but will never stop the flow. Beaver take down many trees as well, we provide tree wrapping services, also painting the bases of trees with a sand/paint mix will sometimes deter the beaver. Bigfoot also provides beaver damaged tree removal services. If beaver have knocked down trees on your property, you need those trees removed, call Bigfoot. We cut the trees, move trees, unblock spillways, dams, and dens. All of which has to be done after the beaver is trapped and removed. Any other questions about beaver control, beaver removal / trapping, dam removal, cleanup, beaver trees removed, call Bigfoot.

The beaver is distinguished by its extremely broad, horizontally flattened tail. Beavers are 3 to 4 ft (91–120 cm) long, including the tail (12 in./30.5 cm long, 6 in./15.2 cm wide), and about 15 in. (38 cm) high at the shoulder; they usually weigh about 60 lb (27 kg). Their long, dense fur is reddish brown to nearly black; the naked, scaly tail is black. Both sexes have scent glands located in a pouch in the anal region. Because of their great importance in maintaining the natural environment, they have been reintroduced in many areas of North America and Russia and are now increasing in numbers.

Beavers build lodges up to 3 ft (91 cm) high and 5 ft (1.5 m) wide of sticks and mud; the entrances are below water level, with ramps leading to the living quarters, located on a platform above water level. They may also build burrows in banks with underwater entrances. They create deep ponds, or maintain the water level in old ones, by building dams across streams. These are made of sticks and logs, and the upper surfaces are reinforced with stones and mud. Materials are gathered by collecting wood and felling small trees by gnawing; often the beavers dig canals for floating these to the right spot. Most, if not all, of these activities are done mechanically, as a result of instinct; captive animals persist in building useless dams, and even in the wild beavers will attempt to reinforce solid, manmade dams with sticks.

Although they form monogamous families and live in colonies, there is little social contact among beavers and they work independently. A colony consists of a cluster of lodges, each occupied by a family of the parents and their last two litters. The beavers sleep by day and spend the night foraging for food and building or repairing their structures. They feed on a variety of aquatic and shore plants, surviving in winter largely on bark. Sticks for winter food are stored in the lodges and underwater. Excellent swimmers, they can stay underwater for up to fifteen minutes. When alarmed, a beaver slaps the water with its tail, making a loud noise that sends other beavers hurrying to the safety of deep water. Females give birth to two to eight young in the spring; these mature in two years. Beavers are responsible for creating many of the woodland ponds that support lush vegetation and eventually become meadows.

With the recent trend in human encroachment on natural habitats, beavers have become more of a common problem than you might think.
