After humanely removing your beavers, we are equipped to quickly and safely remove the dams and get your water flowing again. Although beaver dams create beneficial habitats, in the wrong locations they can be a drowning hazard, hold disease, cause property damage, and even prevent the migration of various fish species.
We utilize everything from heavy equipment to pickaxes and portable winches, we can get your water flowing.
Many clients choose to try to manage beavers and the varying water level with pond leveling technology. Essentially, we create beaver-proof drainage points through the dam at a specified depth, this way the beavers can build without intervention, but the water level is never a problem.
This type of service usually requires a recurring inspection and maintenance program.
Working With Beavers
Where property damage, water levels, and risk to people and pets are not a concern, beavers can be extremely valuable partners in ecosystem management and restoration. The environmental services provided by beavers are substantial, these ecosystem engineers can completely change their local landscape and create habitat for a variety of other wildlife.
We have developed unique and effective beaver management strategies that are designed for sensitive, high-profile situations. Regardless of the service required, it is important that the public perception is positive and supportive. We have a perfect track record when it comes to our high-profile beaver services; no accidents and no media exposure.
Some Extra Information
This is the most common issue regarding beavers; property damage is a significant and costly problem across North America. Some common property concerns are:
- flooding can backup septic tanks
- flooding can wash out roads, bridges, and railways
- flooding can devastate farms
- tree loss can be costly, and contribute to erosion
Although beavers benefit the environment in many ways, the habitats they create can pose serious safety hazards. Some common safety concerns are:
- high water/drowning
- disease in standing water
- tripping/impaling hazard on beaver spikes
Although rare, any beaver that is cornered or threatened is more than capable of inflicting serious injury on both people and pets. Beavers often kill dogs that chase them into the water, and there are even recorded cases of beavers killing people.
Enjoy beavers, but keep your distance.
Beavers spend the warmer months preparing their habitat and food cache for winter. Consequently, relocating beavers beyond mid-summer is regarded as inhumane, as it is it essentially putting them in a situation where they cannot survive.
Humane Solutions makes every attempt to manage beavers in-situ, however, sometimes physical removal is necessary regardless of the time of year. Do to many variables, sometimes the most humane option is the lethal one.
