Everything has to eat - all part of the natural cycle.

Even those that were introduced still have to eat.

I so love beavers…fond memories as a kid on Crooked Creek. They too are just trying to make a living.

Hand a deer feeder filled with corn above the beaver dam and let the hogs keep the beavers busy.

A good spring loaded beaver trap set around your pond should help to eradicate them or lower the numbers to have less damage.
