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 significant, these ecosystem engineers can completely change their local landscape and create habitat for a variety of other wildlife.
Co-existing with beavers
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.
Beaver pond levelling
Many clients choose to manage beavers and the varying water level with pond levelling technology. Essentially, we create beaver-proof drainage points through the dam at a specified depth, this way the beavers can build without intervention and the water level never becomes a problem.
This type of service usually requires a recurring inspection and maintenance program.
Beaver dam removal
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, to get your water flowing again.
Humane beaver removal
Backed by unique experience, scientific methods, and certified equipment, we offer a variety of beaver trapping services that can be tailored to your unique situation. We have experience managing beavers in every circumstance: private, commercial, municipal, and industrial.
All of our trapping services are guaranteed humane, with no risk of by-catch; and professionally discrete.
Beaver tree protection
Beavers fall trees for food and for building their dams and lodges. Additionally, like all rodents their teeth never stop growing and chewing helps keep them from growing too long. We are well experienced with effective tree protection for beavers. Once flooding and other property damage are addressed, simple wrapping of trees can ensure that your beaver population will stay manageable and beneficial.

Beaver dams can cause significant property, health, or safety issues for individual properties or entire communities, as well as disrupt crucial public services and industrial activities. While this may sometimes be the case, the reality is that beavers are also creating valuable habitat and offering an abundance of valuable ecosystem services.
Using flow control devices to manage water levels and exclusion methods to limit property damage is by far the most economical, humane, and long-term method for managing a beaver population. Co-existing with beavers is rewarding and ecologically beneficial, while ongoing trapping programs without a long-term strategy is inhumane and ultimately expensive and ineffective.
Expert beaver exclusion fencing services
Exclusion fencing is a simple and effective way of keeping beavers from plugging up culverts, bridges, weirs, and other drainage infrastructure. Essentially, it creates a barrier that does not allow beavers access to the area and is built is such a way to discourage damming. These devices are built on site and custom fitted to each location. They provide years of trouble free drainage with minimal maintenance.

Some Beaver Facts:
The most common issue regarding beavers across North America is property damage. This not only compromises structural integrity affecting property value but is also a costly problem. 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. Due to many variables, sometimes the most humane option is the lethal one.
