The Muskrat (Ondatra zibethicus), although small, can cause extensive damage to pond dams, reservoirs and shoreline landscaping with their extensive burrowing. They can also be extremely destructive to landscaping plants, both aquatic and terrestrial.

 

At Virginia Professional Wildlife Removal Services we are constantly striving to advance our education so that we may serve you better.

 

Muskrats have also been known to damage pond liners in backyard water gardens, costing homeowners thousands of dollars in replacement costs. Virginia Professional Wildlife Removal Services provides nuisance muskrat trapping and removal services in Central and Eastern Virginia – including Richmond, Charlottesville, Goochland, Louisa, Fluvanna, Albemarle, Orange, Mineral, Gordonsville, Earlysville, Keswick, Powhatan, Henrico and Hanover. Call us today and we will be happy to come out and help you with your unwelcome guests.

 

Damage and Damage Identification

 

Damage caused by muskrats is primarily due to their burrowing activity. Burrowing may not be readily evident until serious damage has occurred. One way to observe early burrowing in farm ponds or reservoirs is to walk along the edge of the dam or shorelines when the water is clear and look for “runs” or trails from just below the normal water surface to as deep as 3 feet (91 cm). If no burrow entrances are observed, look for droppings along the bank or on logs or structures a muskrat can easily climb upon. If the pond can be drawn down from 1 1/2 to 3 feet (46 to 91 cm) each winter, muskrat burrows will be exposed, just as they would during extended drought periods. Any burrows found in the dam should be filled, tamped in, and covered with rock to avoid possible washout or, if livestock are using the pond, to prevent injury to a foot or leg.

Where damage is occurring to a crop, plant cutting is generally evident. In aquaculture reservoirs generally maintained without lush aquatic vegetation, muskrat runs and burrows or remains of mussels, crayfish, or fish along with other muskrat signs (tracks or droppings) are generally easy to observe.(Source: Prevention and Control of Wildlife Damage, 1994)
