Although they are not common in cities, beavers can be found throughout the Waldorf, MD area. These animals are some of the largest rodents in North America. Adults weigh between thirty-five and sixty pounds. They have a long body—twenty-five to thirty-one inches typically—and an identifiable tail in the shape of a paddle.
Beavers are probably best known for their dam building. If the water is deep enough they will also build bank burrows or lodges. All beaver structures have mud, sticks, bark, rocks, grass, and plant material as their construction material. Some of these dams can grow quite large. And, it is these dams that cause beavers to become a pest animal.
Beavers may be invading your property for a number of reasons. First, if you have a water source, then beavers may decide to build a dam on it. Anyone in the Waldorf, MD area with a creek or other water should keep an eye out for beaver activity, especially in the autumn when most dam-building activities occur.
Also, beavers eat a variety of plants that you may have on your property. These include a number of tree species like the aspen, poplar, birch, maple, willow, alder, and cherry. Berries, water lilies, and cattails are also some of the beaver's favorite foods. If you have both a water source and food that the beaver likes to eat, your yard will likely be irresistible to a beaver.
Beavers are not physically dangerous to humans. They do not usually carry diseases and are not that aggressive. However, it is their dams and eating habits that can cause the most problems. While the building of dams is not a problem in many situations, sometimes it will cause major damage such as flooding. Beaver dams are also responsible for destroying creeks and rivers in extreme instances.
Additionally, beavers cut down wood to make their dams and to eat. They are fairly indiscriminate when it comes to the wood they use for dams as long as they are the correct size. For food, beavers prefer certain types of trees, but they will branch out if required. Obviously, you don't want a beaver eating and killing your ornamental trees or shrubs.
If there are signs of beavers on your Waldorf, MD property, you should act immediately. You don't want a beaver colony to get established. The larger the beaver colony, the harder it is to completely remove.
