Beavers become a nuisance for homeowners and commercial properties because they can damage nearby creeks and trees to build a dam, which can also lead to flooding in surrounding areas. Although these animals are not aggressive creatures, they can cause damage that make property owners eager to remove the problem. Beavers are drawn to wooded areas containing water nearby such as a lake or pond. Concerns with beavers continue to grow due to the expansion of the beaver population and human encroachment on their habitat.
How Can Beavers Be Removed?
Removal is not always as easy as trapping and removing beavers from the property. CT beaver removal needs to be done on regulated trapping season, which is December 1 – March 31. This should be done by a professional beaver removal and trapping specialist. However, beaver removal can still be done outside the regulated trapping season (April 1 – November 30) as long as the landowner or municipality who is experiencing beaver problems contacts the DEEP Wildlife Division at 860-424-3011 regarding a special permit to trap beaver. You can qualify for a special out-of-season permit if beavers around your property are causing damage that threatens public health and safety, harms agriculture crops or livestock, or the damage qualifies as severe. Landowners who feel that they qualify for a special out-of-season permit should call the Wildlife Division regarding an application and a list of licensed companies that can conduct trapping activities.
Trapping should be done by licensed professionals and within regulation requirements. Beaver trapping is an effective solution. Nevertheless, the state of Connecticut prohibits the relocation of beavers and therefore lethal trapping is required for removal. Contact Wildlife Control Services for more information.
