Notes from the Lake


As you can see, I am ready to take matters into my own hands vis a vis the beaver problem.  The Beavers are continuing to plague the campground as they build their home bigger and bigger.

I have nothing against beavers personally - I would be one of the first to stop and take a photo if I saw one.  Recently, however, I have started to feel like if I saw one I would take the boots to them!  Just look at the devastation they are leaving in their wake.

It's very frustrating to see them taking down these good size trees and then only stripping the branches and taking them away.

Noticed it looks like you have wire around the base of some trees -- does that help?

Wow, I didn't know they could be so distructive, I thought they used stuff that was lying around, not trees that are growning. I too would suggest barbed wire around them, but I guess that could be expensive with so many trees. Is there something they don't like the smell of, you could spray that around the trees? Arlene

Deer are the destructive ones around here but it looks like the beavers win hands down with damage. I put deoderant soap bars in my fruit trees to keep the deer away and it seems to work. Thankfully no beavers here.
