Muskrat Related Complaints and Potential Risks

Along the bank of your pond, creek or ditch the ground is falling in. The culvert or tile is blocked by grass. Muskrats may be the issue.


Muskrats are a stout medium sized rodent that adapts to the water quite well. It has a broad head with short ears that just peek out from their fur. Their soft brown coat is pretty much waterproof. Its tail is similar to that of a rat, hence the name, almost hairless, long and slim. The muskrat is quite adapted to the water.

Common Muskrat Signs

The following are some common signs of beaver reaping havoc:

  • large dens built above water in ponds and marshes.
  • damaged gardens and crops.
  • evidence of burrowing.

Other structural damage such as to dikes, dams and irrigation may occur as an indication of their burrowing.

Why Muskrat Removal Is Important

Muskrats have the potential to produce two to three litter per year, with four to eight young in each litter. This problem can quickly get out of hand.

We deal with removing muskrat efficiently, professionally, and humanely.
