The beaver is the largest native rodent found in North America. Beavers are often called “Nature’s Engineers” because of their ability to alter and remodel their entire environment to suit their needs. North American beavers have very sharp teeth that allow them to cut down trees to form their dams. A family of beavers can turn a stream into a pond or lake in no time. Their large, webbed hindfoot is also quite distinctive. 

ARE BEAVERS A CONCERN?

  • 1. Beaver Problem

    Beavers can cause some severe damage to forests, crops, and yards. They can damage valuable trees and crops by cutting them down. They can also generate severe flooding for customers when they dam up small streams. Beavers can also carry two diseases that can spread to humans: Tularemia & Giardiasis.

  • 2. Trapping & Removal

    Advanced Wildlife Control is one of the few companies fully-equipped to handle all of your beaver control needs. Getting rid of beavers isn’t an easy job. Often we need to use a canoe to get to the dam and set the appropriate cages to trap the beavers. 

    We believe in humane animal removal, but unfortunately, we can not relocate beavers since they damage streams and land. Therefore, beavers are one of the few animals we have to put to sleep when caught.

Beavers enjoy eating twigs, especially from aspens, poplars, and alders, as well as water grasses, fleshy roots, and water lilies.

Beavers are common in Wisconsin, especially on streams, rivers, marshes, lakes, and ponds. The most common calls and complaints regarding beavers are their damming up small streams that cause flooding for our customers. Beaver lodges vary in size but can be as big as 15-feet wide and 7-feet high.

One neat aspect of beavers is that they are monogamous and will mate for life. They do not breed until they are 2-3 years old. Breeding typically occurs in the den in late January or February. A beaver will have one litter per year with 1 to 6 kits in each litter born in May or June. An established colony of beavers consists of the adult pair and two years of offspring.
