When it comes time to take stock of some of Georgia’s most ecologically important animals, no discussion is complete without mention of the beaver. Mostly due to the physical effect they can have on their wildlife habitat and surrounding environment, the mere existence of beavers can be a residual benefit for many plants and animals in the ecosystem. While beavers build dams along waterways to control water levels, assist in their feeding, and to help them elude predators, the dams also have the residual effect of forming ponds and wetlands that serve numerous plants and animals, particularly waterfowl and other migratory birds. These wetlands are also important when it comes to essential irrigation and flood control processes and natural water table maintenance.



But as important as beavers may be to some ecological processes in the North Georgia wild, their existence and the effect they have on humans’ surroundings can also be deemed a nuisance to many home and land owners. Aside from the dead and damaged trees used for the dams, the resulting blocked waterways can cause unwanted flooding of private land, damage to crops, landscaping, and structures.



As a result, some individuals may wish to have the unwanted beavers professionally removed from their property, bypassing other troublesome, costly alternatives such as repellents, building fencing around the property, or utilizing special drainage devices to control flooding as a result of a beaver’s dam. Professional removal involves the use of bait and traps, resulting in a safe, effective, and environmentally-safe method of beaver control. A professional trapper possesses the experience and resources necessary to safely and effectively remove an unwanted beaver and where it’s okay to release them back into the wild harmlessly and legally.
