Beaver and Muskrat Damage


    Ponds and property under siege by beavers or muskrats? Town and Country Pest Solutions is your trusted partner for safe, effective, and environmentally responsible nuisance beaver and muskrat control. We understand our responsibility to educate and work with our clients to live with and properly manage the co-existence of beavers, muskrats, and humans. When hiring and teaming up with trapping professionals at T&C, we will work to customize a plan that takes an approach so Beavers, Muskrats, Humans, and the surrounding environment will all be considered when planning for the best and most humane outcome.

    Beavers and Muskrats can cause serious damage to your property when not managed properly:

    1. Damage to waterways: Beaver dams can flood property and disrupt natural water flow, while muskrats can burrow into banks, causing erosion and structural instability.
    2. Threat to docks, boats, and landscaping: Both beavers and muskrats can lift and damage docks, boats, and vegetation with their gnawing and burrowing habits.
    3. Safety concernse: Beaver dams can attract mosquitoes and other pests, while aggressive muskrats can spread disease and pose a threat to pets and children.
