North American beavers inhabit most of the United States with the exception of the warmer regions of Florida and California. Beavers can live in a variety of different environments, but are most typically found in natural or man-made wetlands such as ponds, marshes, and rivers. Once they inhabit an environment, groups of beavers construct complicated dams and lodges to create ideal living spaces for them and their families.

APPEARANCE

Growing up to 5 feet in length and weighing in excess of 90 pounds, beavers are much larger than other aquatic rodents found in the United States. They are brown in color and have large heads and broad, flat tails covered in black scales. Strong swimmers and diggers, beavers also possess strong back legs and webbed feet. As is the case with most rodents, their orange front incisors are always growing, which makes it necessary for beavers to regularly chew on bark or similar substances. The large aquatic rodents can close off their nostrils and ears in order to swim underwater for longer periods of time.

DIET

Targeting species like maple, beech, alder, and willow, beavers feed on both the bark and cambium, or the soft wood found underneath the bark, of trees. The rodents also feed on aquatic vegetation and enjoy the leaves, roots, and tubers of growing plants. Beavers will actually store food for the winter by shoving trees and shrubs into the mud at the bottom of ponds or streams.

HABITAT

Beavers build dens made of sticks, mud, grass, and moss. These burrows are found either in bodies of water or on banks near water. Beaver dens usually have two or more access points, with at least one located underwater. The rodents can be found throughout North America, though they typically do not live too far north or in the deserts of the Southwest United States.

ENTRY INTO HOMES OR BUSINESSES

ENTRY INTO HOMES OR BUSINESSES

Though they are not known to enter homes, beavers will encroach on private properties if the land is located near their natural habitats. Once beavers find refuge in ponds or lakes, they begin building dams, and nearby trees can become targets as the beavers harvest them for food and as construction materials.

PROBLEMS & DAMAGE

PROBLEMS & DAMAGE

While conservationists point out that beaver dams create thriving ecosystems, nuisance beavers also cause flooding in residential areas and on public lands. Their dams slow the flow of water, which affects surrounding soil, crop yields, city infrastructures, and even native populations of fish. Additionally, beavers are known carriers of tularemia and giardia.

PREVENTION & EXCLUSION

PREVENTION & EXCLUSION

Removing trees and controlling water levels helps deter populations of nuisance beavers from wandering onto private properties. Individuals who do not want to remove all trees from their land can wrap them in hardware cloth to prevent destruction. Due to certain state and federal laws, attempting to remove beaver dams can result in costly fines or jail time.

TRAPPING & REMOVAL

TRAPPING & REMOVAL

Individuals trying to trap or remove nuisance beavers without professional assistance endanger themselves unnecessarily. Beavers are wild animals that become aggressive when they feel threatened. Always contact trained pest control specialists when dealing with problematic beavers. Wildlife removal technicians have the training, tools, and knowledge to successfully and humanely remove the animals.
