Controlling Beaver Damage on Guntersville Lake
Beaver are equipped with powerful jaws that are capable of taking down large trees with ease. Although for the most part beavers are considered assets to the environment, they can sometimes become a nuisance for home landscaping, wreaking havoc on crops and flooding timber land. Most of the damage caused by beavers is a result of dam building, bank burrowing, flooding, blocked culverts and beaver cutting ornamental trees on lake front property. Some southern states where beaver damage is extensive have estimated the cost at $3 million to $5 million dollars annually for timber loss; crop losses; roads, dwellings, and flooded property; and other damage. In some states, tracts of bottomland hardwood timber up to several thousand acres in size may been lost because of beaver. Some unusual cases observed include state highways flooded because of beaver ponds, reservoir dams destroyed by bank den burrows collapsing, and train derailments caused by continued flooding and burrowing. Housing developments have been threatened by beaver dam flooding, and thousands of acres of cropland and young pine plantations have been flooded by beaver dams. Road, ditches, drain pipes, and culverts have been stopped up so badly that they had to be dynamited out and replaced. Some bridges have been destroyed because of beaver dam-building activity.
Identifying beaver damage generally is not difficult. Signs include dams; dammed-up culverts, bridges, or drain pipes resulting in flooded lands, timber, roads, and crops; cut-down or girdled trees and crops; lodges and burrows in ponds, reservoir levees, and dams. In large watersheds, it may be difficult to locate bank dens. However, the limbs, cuttings, and debris around such areas as well as dams along tributaries usually help pinpoint the area. Destruction of beaver dams alone is not recommended, as it does nothing to make the area unattractive for beavers. If you destroy the dam without eliminating the beaver they will rebuild, often starting the same day. They will use some new trees for repairs and this may accelerate the damage you were trying to stop in the first place.
Once a colony of beaver establishes its territory in a pond, lake or stream it is virtually impossible to make the beaver move somewhere else through the use of non lethal techniques. In most cases, trapping and removing the entire beaver colony is the best solution to removing the problem beaver.
