Virginia Beaver Problems Animal Removal Services Of Virginia Face

Beavers are very valuable to the environment but they also cause damage on Virginia property through their dam building and tree cutting activities.  Furthermore, they can impede or affect the structural integrity of roads, railroad trestles, and man-made waterways. In addition, beavers are hosts to several ectoparasites and internal parasites including, nematodes, trematodes, and coccidians. Also, beavers bring giardia lamblia, a pathogenic intestinal parasite, that causes human giardiasis.

Undermining beaver dams discourage beavers from staying around. Also, putting fences or beaver baffles allow removal of partially constructed dams. In addition, lowering the water level and keeping it low can cause a beaver to move elsewhere. Also, beaver pipes installed through a dam allows for the flow of more water beyond the dam.

The habitat modification by beavers, caused primarily by dam building, is often beneficial to fish, furbearers, reptiles, amphibians, waterfowl, and shorebirds. However, when this modification comes in conflict with human objectives, the impact of damage may far outweigh the benefits.

Most of the damage caused by beavers is a result of dam building, bank burrowing, tree cutting, or flooding. We’ve seen homes and cropland  threatened by beaver dam flooding. Road ditches, drain pipes, and culverts have been stopped up so badly that they had to be dynamited out and replaced. In addition, beavers threaten human health by contaminating water supplies with Giardia. During these situations, Animal Removal Services of Virginia’s beaver removal service provide the solutions you need.

Identifying beaver damage and the need for beaver removal demands the expertise of Animal Removal Services Of Virginia. The signs we look for include dams; dammed-up culverts, bridges, or drain pipes resulting in flooded lands, timber, roads, and crops; cut-down or girdled trees and crops; lodges and burrows in ponds, reservoir levees, and dams.

Beavers eat a variety of trees and shrubs, but prefer aspen, cottonwood, sweetgum, willow, black cherry, blackgum, tulip poplar, and pine. They will abandon an area when most of the edible foods have been exhausted.


The Positive Effects Of Beavers

Beavers produce fertile environments across Virginia. Furthermore, when beavers and their families work together to produce dams they do more than protect themselves from their enemies. Beaver dams provide water for the land and lessen the effects of droughts. While in water, beavers also dig into the mud below the water surface which slows water evaporation. In addition, as new beaver ponds are created they can break down toxins.

One beaver can be a problem on your property. But when you have a family of beavers you can run into real problems.
