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.
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 – Virginia’s Largest Rodent
Beavers And Virginia Law
The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries has lenient policies when it comes to killing beavers. But, we prefer beaver removal by trapping or fix your beaver problem so they can live harmoniously with you.
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.
