Everyone loves beavers. Pretty much everyone strives to be as busy as a beaver. That’s the way to get ahead in life, right? That’s great, but sometimes it’s necessary to restore a healthy balance between a local environment and a nuisance beaver population. The Critter Team uses advanced technology and equipment to provide humane beaver trapping services.
The beaver rarely gets credit for being North America’s largest rodent species. Beaver are vegetarians that rely on fast-growing deciduous trees such as oak, hackberry, willow, poplar, ash, and elm both for food and to construct dams. They have enamel-covered teeth that they use like chisels to chop down trees. The hind feet of a beaver are webbed similar to a duck, and they store fat in their flat tails for use in winter. Beaver tails also serve as rudders when they swim and to sound an alarm when a tail is slapped against the water.
The beaver has been designated as a keystone species because it supports wetland development and stability by creating beneficial habitat for fish, insects, birds and many mammal species. Beavers generally cut down trees within five yards of the shoreline. Although various methods have been employed to control beaver populations, humane beaver trapping and possible relocation is the most effective way to limit local tree damage.
There are now so many beavers that they are commonly found living in Houston TX towns and cities. Beaver can be found living in ponds, creeks, streams, lakes, tanks, swamps, drainages, bayous, reservoirs, storm drains, irrigation ditches, canals and under homes. Adult beavers grow three to four feet in length and usually weigh between 35 and 70 pounds. It should be noted, however, that many Houston TX beavers weigh more than 75 pounds.
They are primarily nocturnal creatures that are particularly energetic around dusk. The beaver mating season occurs during the winter, and female beavers give birth to litters of beaver kits in May or June. A typical beaver colony consists of anywhere from one to 10 beavers. Young beavers remain with the beaver family for approximately two years.
The influx of beavers into suburbs and cities is bound to create problems. The Critter Team advises home and business owners to never attempt to assist an orphaned, ill or injured beaver. Beavers are wild animals and are likely to act accordingly. Beavers and people just don’t get along. Moreover, most municipalities prohibit the capture and possession of wild animals.
