Live trap for removal of Beaver

Live trapping and relocation and release is the exception rather than the rule for dealing with problem beavers.  Generally, live traps suitable for capturing beavers are cumbersome to use and require professional expertise. Any trap used should be checked daily.

Laws and regulations to be aware of

While we attempt to provide guidance about state and federal regulations pertaining to specific species and control techniques, we do not provide information about local jurisdictions (city, town, county, etc.) where regulations may be more restrictive, especially as it applies to discharge of firearms, transport of animals or use of trapping equipment. Contact your local city or county government to inquire further. No guarantee is made that information (or lack of information) associated with a species or control technique is completely accurate or current. You should become familiar with federal, state and local laws before beginning any wildlife control activities.
