Trapping is not a lasting solution because new beavers will move into vacated territory.
Members are encouraged to protect their trees from beaver damage.
These are suggestions from the Ministry of Natural Resources.
How to make your property unwelcome
• plant trees and vegetation that beavers don’t like, such as elderberry, ninebark and twinberry
• wrap individual trees in metre-high, galvanized welded wire fencing, hardware cloth or multiple layers of chicken wire
• paint tree trunks with a sand and paint mix (120 millilitres of masonry-grade sand per litre of latex paint) to protect trees from beaver damage
