Getting Rid of Muskrats
Large rodents that live in and near freshwater, muskrats are similar in appearance to beavers, though they are typically much smaller. They populate shallow-water areas throughout the United States. Typically muskrats have dark brown fur and grow up to 4 pounds. Generally herbivores, muskrats look for places with abundant aquatic plants like cattails, waterlilies, and duckweed.
Common Muskrat Issues
- Damage ecosystems in which they live by eating lots of the food sources for other species.
- Muskrats will attach domestic animals if they feel threatened.
- They carry a variety of diseases.
- They carry ticks and lice in their fur.
