I am a licensed nuisance wildlife trapper, I can trap and remove beaver all year even under ice. I remove beaver causing damage to trees, landscaping, damming water ways, and blocking culverts. There are two main types of jobs I get called to remove beaver. One is removing beaver in creeks, many creeks in our area drain farm fields and retention ponds. The second most popular type of beaver removal is retention ponds themselves. Beaver that move into retention ponds will dig dens into the bank or build a large lodge depending on how long they been there. Both beaver and muskrat will deposit large amounts of  soil into a pound over time lessoning the volume of water a pond can hold. 

Difference between Muskrat and Beaver

  • Size - Beaver can weigh as much as 70 lbs. where a muskrat will average around 4 lbs. 
  • Identification - Beaver swim with just their head above water and a muskrat will swim with their entire body above water using the tail as a rutter. 
  • Nuisance wildlife - Both of these pest can cause a great deal of damage to the banks of creeks of and ponds.
