Is beaver trapping hard?

It’s not easy to trap boas for beginners. This animal is particularly difficult to trap. One of the largest rodents is considered a problem animal when the dams they build on rivers and streams are not properly maintained. Beavers have been known to build dams that are too high and too wide to support their weight. This can cause the dam to collapse and flood the area.

The dams can also be too shallow to hold the weight of a beaver, which can lead to the animal drowning in the floodwaters. Beavers also have a habit of building dams in areas where there is a lot of vegetation, such as along the banks of streams and rivers. These dams are often too deep and wide for the animals to swim through, and they can drown when they try to get out of them.

How do you get rid of beavers without trapping?
