Flooding is the most common repercussion caused by beaver dams. Flood water can be treacherous and destructive in many ways; from residential to commercial real estate, to land, plants, and timber. Several natural and man-made structures are frequently harmed by floodwaters caused by local beaver dams. Timber, agriculture, homes, buildings, roadways, and more can all be negatively affected by beaver obstructions. Continue reading to learn about some common areas negatively impacted by beaver dams.

Homes and Buildings

Flood water can cause a substantial amount of damage to commercial and residential real estate. If beaver colonies live nearby, homes and buildings can all be at risk to structural damages from flooding. Beaver dams create floodwaters that can overflow into backyards, parking lots, and even basements. Sitting water can cause a long list of structural harm; everything from dry wall deterioration to mold growth. Beavers are also known to gnaw on decks, patios, and other wooden structures around homes and buildings. This reduces building value, as well as, the physical appearance and aesthetics of a property.

Ornamental plant damages are another trademark of nuisance beaver populations. Decorative shrubs, plants, bushes, and small trees are common targets for beavers. This can be a frustrating and expensive problem for commercial landscapes, gardening enthusiasts, local parks, and more.

Beaver Control

In most states, a person is required to have a license or permit for beaver control; or to trap beavers. It is illegal in most jurisdictions to capture, kill, harm, or hunt beavers. A legal approach to getting rid of a beaver problem is to hire a professional animal control company. A reputable animal removal business uses safe and humane capture and release strategies to get rid of nuisance beavers. This is the best place to start when trying to eliminate a beaver issue. Skilled trappers retain the proper equipment and training to quickly and effectively remove beavers from any property.

This is what some people want. They don't want the critters but they don't want to harm them either. They want to get rid of them naturally. If that is the case, here are a few suggestions:

Repellants - Squirrels have natural enemies with one of them being the fox. Because of this, many manufacturers make repellants from fox urine or something very similar smelling. Other manufacturers  have other products made to repel the pesty little critters.

If you want to try something that you can get at  your local grocery store, try moth balls. This is a quick, simple and cheap method.

If you were to search the net, you would read many many instances of people using moth balls to keep the squirrels away. Back a hundred (or two) years ago, moth balls were very popular. However, as mentioned above the use of moth balls is 'dissed' by many as being totally worthless. Only by trying will you know for sure.

Lastly, you can use a "live trap" to get rid of squirrels. A "live trap" is where you catch them safely in a cage and then take them somewhere to release them.

Depending on how quick you want to get rid of the squirrels you can place the trap out in the yard (or wherever) and prop the door open such that it can't shut and trap the squirrel. By doing this you are giving the squirrels the chance to get used to the cage without being afraid of it.

Then after they have been exposed to it for a while, put some nice bait in it (like peanut butter) and you'll probably have your pest trapped within a short period of time.

You have just read a few methods to get rid of squirrels naturally. None of them are inhumane or will hurt the squirrel. You just have to give one or two a try and see how they work. Some of them are really not that expensive to try so you don't have much to lose, but much experience to gain.

You found a baby squirrel, and now need information on how to care for it. You're about to experience one of the most rewarding activities on earth!

The ideal situation would be to return the baby to it's mother. If you place it in a small box with a warm rice bag, and tack it to the tree where you found it, it's possible that mom will come and take it back to an alternate nest. If the mother doesn't come within an hour, the baby becomes your charge.

Relax, caring for baby squirrels is easy! If you don't have the time or will to do it, every State has licensed wild animal rehabilitators who can do the job. If you do have the time and can remember the acronym, "WHAM," you can easily and confidently care for a baby squirrel!

The letter W, stands for warm. Baby squirrels need to be kept warm. You never should attempt to feed a baby until it is completely warmed. A baby squirrel should always feel warm the the touch when you pick it up. When the baby is less than 5 weeks old, (before it's eyes open,) it can easily be kept in a cardboard box. I like to use rice bags to keep my baby squirrels warm. I heat the bag in the microwave until it is warm to the touch, place it in the box, punch it down in the center to make a nest, place pieces of blanket or fleece material over the bag, put the baby squirrel in and cover it with more soft cloth. This method keeps the baby warm between feedings.

Some people like to use a heating pad on the low setting under the box. If it's placed under half of the box, the baby squirrel will climb on and off the heated side until it finds a comfortable sleeping temperature. Either way, this accomplishes the task of keeping the baby squirrel warm.

The need for calcium, especially in captivity, is one of the most critical aspects of raising a squirrel. In fact, it is the most important factor in success or failure when it comes to raising a baby squirrel! If a baby squirrel does not have an adequate source of calcium after it stops nursing, it will develop a condition called Metabolic Bone Disease, or Rickets. I don't know how many times I've gotten e-mails from panicked people telling me their 5 or 6 month old squirrel was fine one day and the next day lost the use of it's rear legs. It happens that fast, and is completely preventable!

There are many more details about how to take care of a baby squirrel, that are beyond the scope of this article. My desire is to help you take the right first steps in this rewarding endeavor, and to let you know that I am always available to help and answer any and all questions about the care of a baby squirrel! On my website I offer free recipes, advice and e-books at no charge to help you successfully raise a healthy and happy squirrel!
