The North American beaver is a mammal that has captured our hearts for generations. Beavers occupy our folklore, children's literature as well as serving as mascots for teams and towns. Beavers are large (adults can reach over 50 lbs) semi-aquatic rodents that live in most parts of North America. They make their homes, known as dams, out of mud, sticks and fallen forest fodder that keep them safe from predators as well as serve a vital role in the ecosystem.

The building of dams which makes beavers so unique is also what makes them so destructive and bothersome. Dams serve a crucial role in the local ecosystems by using the undergrowth in forests and by the creation of wetlands for other animals. However, dams can also cause an amazing amount of flooding around the area of the damn. Beavers are also expert chews with a voracious appetite for wood. If you have several families of beavers living near your property, they could fell all of your trees and damage your property in a short amount of time. If you have beaver problems, try this to get rid of them once and for all:

4. Do not, under any circumstance, destroy the dam before you remove the beavers. You will be sorely disappointed to wake up and find that the dam has been rebuilt and more of your property destroyed to rebuild it.

Getting rid of beavers is not easy and will rarely work if you do not know what you are doing. If these methods do not work, call a professional. A professional will know exactly how to get rid of them, how to catch them efficiently as well as relocating them once they are caught.

Mechanical Traps

Custom made traps are a good, humane squirrel repellent. They are a non-toxic way of encasing and ridding squirrels from attics or outside areas such as gardens or trees. The live traps used as squirrel repellents can be hung from trees or placed in areas where squirrels inhabit. Place peanut butter or bread inside the trap to lure the squirrel into the trap. Once the squirrel enters the trap, it will close encasing the squirrel without harming it. The animal can then be transported to a different area away from your home.

Organic Squirrel Repellents

Organic methods of squirrel repellent are the use of hot red peppers, chili peppers, or cayenne spice. Other spices such as black pepper or lemon juice can be spread in areas to deter squirrels. Placing these spicy ingredients on bird feeders or places where squirrels frequent will keep them away. The hot spices when ingested by squirrels will keep them from returning.

Squirrel repellents can be an effective way to rid squirrels from your garden, home, or tree areas. Make sure to keep any methods of elimination safe to the wildlife and environment surrounding the location. Most solutions for squirrel repellents are safe for children and pets especially designed traps. The important thing to remember when trying to get rid of squirrels is to remain patient.

With patience, your efforts will finally win over these pesky creatures.
