Commonly mistaken for a different classification, beavers are actually considered rodents. They are actually the second largest rodents in the world (after Capybaras). They are known for building dams, canals, and lodges that allow them to live on the water.
Everything beavers need to survive is outdoors, so their damage tends to occur outside. They can damage home foundations, but usually the bodies of water in which they thrive are located far enough away from houses that damage is typically limited to trees and shrubberies near water on your property. If you notice signs of beaver damage on your property, call Critter Control of Dayton today or leave us more details about your wildlife problem here.

- Their use of trees is the reason they are sometimes considered pests. Beavers are vital to the survival and expansion of wetland animals. Though they are a key contributor to wetland ecosystems, beavers are not only an aesthetic nuisance, but a danger to people and property when their nesting habits cause flooding.
- Individuals who are fond of particular trees and vegetation should encircle the base of these plants with wire mesh, which successfully deters beavers from gnawing. Never attempt to touch beavers as they may bite when threatened. If flooding is a concern, contact professionals who have access to unique and effective solutions, including water-level control devices.
Common Beaver Problems
- Beavers do not tend to come inside homes, so their damage is predominantly outdoors.
- Although beavers only affect property near sources of water, the damage caused by beaver dams can affect entire communities. In addition to felled trees and other plant damage, beaver damming can induce flooding and present real problems for area residents. Potential flood threats should be taken care of immediately.
