means that ridding yourself of the beaver problem must be done through capturing
and removal. After assessing the beaver situation, you will be able to determine
as to whether or not a trap will be the most efficient manner. If this is so, the
thing to do is to put the trap on the path that is most busy. You can find this by
checking your trees to find any tree where bark removal is indicated. The live trap
can be placed either there or near the area of a dam.
