Due to the continuing development in central North Carolina, we are seeing more and more beaver activity in residential areas.
While we love wildlife, we don’t love the problems wildlife such as beaver may be causing you.
What problems do beavers cause?
Beavers can cause a great deal of financial damage in a short amount of time. Beaver activity can:
- Destroy trees and vegetation
- Block waterways and culverts
- Cause flooding damage
- Damage to crops
You will know you are having a problem with beaver if you have flooding, clogged waterways, and/or damage to trees and other vegetation.
Most beaver conflicts are a result of their dam-building activity. This can cause flooding of otherwise dry ground, wash out roads, damage septic systems, or kill trees in a flooded area.
Beaver activity can also results in loss of valuable trees.
What do beavers eat?
Beavers are herbivores that eat only plants. They may eat the bark, branches, stems, and buds of many different types of trees. They also eat grasses, leaves, and aquatic plants.
How do I get rid of beavers?
Attempting to remove a wild animal yourself can be dangerous and even illegal.
High Creek Wildlife Control can safely and humanely evict and exclude damaging animals from your property.
Beaver removal process
First, we perform an assessment to determine the extent of damage and estimate the beaver population.
Then we will determine the best beaver control and/or beaver removal course of action. We use the most modern and humane beaver trapping methods possible.
We will often breach the beaver dam and allow water to flow to make sure we remove all of the beaver causing problems in the area. All of our work comes with a 30-day guarantee.
