Eagle Creek Wildlife Control will assess the site and determine the course of action. Eagle Creek Wildlife Control not only captures beavers, we also install Water Level Control Devices and wrap trees with wire for protection.
- The average beaver is about 40 inches long and will weigh between 30-60lbs.
- Beavers never stop growing throughout their lives and there have instances of beavers exceeding 80lbs.
- Beavers live in colonies ranging from 6-12 individuals, all related. A colony consists of two adults and their offspring of that year and from the previous year.
- In the colony every beaver participates in raising the young, and maintaining the dam and lodge.
- Mating happens in January to March.
- Kits are born April to June.
- The young will stay with their parents until they’re about 2 years of age and then will be driven by the adults in the spring.
- Beavers are mostly nocturnal, active in the evenings, at night, and early mornings.
- Dams can cause flooding of roads, crops, and basements.
- Dams act as barriers to fish, impeding their movements up and down streams.
- Dams also increase sediment buildup which buries fish redds and suffocates eggs and increases ambient water temperatures, affecting cold water fish species negatively.
- Trees cut down for dams and food caches can lead to erosion, poor aesthetics, and affects the forest industry.
- Trees cut down can fall on equipment or across fences and damage them.
- Stumps left behind from fallen trees can impale people if they fall onto them.
