Muskrat Trapping Services In Chapel Hill, NC
While oftentimes mistaken for beavers while swimming through lakes, ponds or marsh areas, muskrats are their own creature, and one which can cause a great amount of damage.
Muskrats are rodents which can grow to be just shy of two feet in length and grow to be almost five pounds in weight. Although fairly unsuspecting of causing incredible damage, these creatures are known for digging burrows into the sides of ponds and marshes which can lead to incredible shoreline damage. Along with this habit, these creatures usually feed on local vegetation which may include aquatic plants such as cattails, duckweed and various other plants. While their nuisance usually affects only the shorelines of ponds and marshes, muskrats can also make their way into homeowners yards.
