Beaver Removal Columbia
Beavers are the cause of many of the draining and flooding problems in South Carolina. Beavers have the potential to cause thousands of dollars in damages to boat docks on lakes and ponds. Beavers are 25 to 75 pound large aquatic rodents with a flat, scaly tail and webbed hind feet. Beavers feed on aquatic plants, trees, and shrubs. As long as there is enough food and a permanent water supply, places like lakes, rivers, creeks, ponds or springs, beavers will be able to make their home. Beavers usually build damns to flood the areas, so that they can obtain food and hide from any predators that may be lurking.
Beaver Trapping Columbia
Beavers build damns, which leads to flooding. This flooding can cause many problems such as damage to timber, agricultural crops, homes and other structures, roadways, and ornamental plants. The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates that beavers cause about $100 million in damage to both public and private property each year.
Beavers attempting to coexist with humans can lead to significant damage to human homes and other structures as a result of flooding. It is possible for entire subdivisions and neighborhoods to suffered from water damage. Beavers are sometimes the cause of appearance and structural problem, leading to direct damage to wooden structure, such as decks, porches or dock, by gnawing on the wood.
Beavers have large, continuously growing teeth that they use to gnaw bark around the base of a tree for food. This gnawing around the base causes the tree to die, resulting in a financial loss for the timber owner. This loss is especially significant when it is the high grade hardwood trees that are damaged. More importantly, flooding caused by beaver dams over large areas of timberland will cause the trees to die and become unmarketable if the water is not quickly drained.
A significant, yet often overlooked, result of beaver dams is immense damage to South Carolina’s public roadways. Beavers will make the water drainage ditches on the edges of South Carolina’s roadways a good habitat. Dams can flood the road, and in some cases if the beaver dams are not properly removed, damage to the road itself due to erosion. Flooding caused by beaver can lead to roads being closed, bridges and culverts requiring replacement, and occasional car accidents.
Beavers have to potential to cause obstructions to water control devices and damage structures by burrowing. It is essential that any irrigation canals and drains that are plugged by beaver dams be cleared as soon as possible. South Carolina pond owners should especially watch out for beavers. Beavers can cause substantial damage to pond dams by burrowing in them.
