Beaver colonies typically consist of 4-10 related individuals, with trapping and removal of resident beavers the most efficient control method. Special permits from the MN DNR are required to trap beaver outside of the traditional harvest season. It is ideal to trap as near to the beaver den site as possible, but trapping remains viable even at visited sites. At the conclusion of the inspection, a quote will be provided for a 10-day trapping program and a start date scheduled.
A wildlife technician will return to the site daily throughout the trapping program to remove captures, re-bait and re-arm traps, and modify placement as necessary. In some instances and with client approval, remote monitoring devices may be used to monitor beaver activity.
