Are you in need of beaver removal on your property? Beavers are the largest rodent in Illinois, reaching lengths of 3 to 3 1/2 feet and weighing 25 to 60 pounds. Their stout bodies are covered with reddish-brown to blackish fur except for the broad, dorsally flattened tail, which is covered with dark, leathery scales.
Beavers can cause quite a bit of damage to property, including cutting down valuable trees, damaging corn fields, damming drainage ditches, and causing flooding. These damages can vary from minor to very severe if the beavers are not dealt with in a swift fashion.
