As you can see these beavers tried to cut down these two trees…  This is a far as they got…..Oh where are those fellows now?

Okay so I have this thing about Beavers or Castor’s)  This last fall , beavers invaded several trees on our property.  Which is would have been find, but they tried to take down a big tree.

So Carol Brown discovered how to top these beavers…..

  • 5 cups of course sand one can of white latex interior paint mix in a gallon bucket stir with wooden stiring stick. Paint trunk up 4 feet from ground and let cure for 24 hours before watering. Reapply as it wears off from exposure do the same to sapplings. This came from the United Forestry Service it repelled 8 out of 10 beavers. Those 2 probably live on your property. LOL

Beavers’ ability to change the landscape is second only to humans. That is just one reason why we find the flat-tailed species fascinating. While some beaver behavior is instinctive, they also learn by imitation and from experience. Dr. Donald Griffin, the father of animal cognition, has said, “When we think of the kinds of animal behavior that suggest conscious thinking, the beaver comes naturally to mind.”

The beaver (genus Castor) is a primarily nocturnal, large, semi-aquatic rodent. Castor includes two extant species, North American beaver (Castor canadensis) (native to North America) and Eurasian beaver (Castor fiber) (Eurasia). Beavers are known for building dams, canals, and lodges (homes). They are the second-largest rodent in the world (after the capybara). Their colonies create one or more dams to provide still, deep water to protect against predators, and to float food and building material.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beaver

In the early 1990 Ellen my sister took us to the  Omni Imax Forth Worth Tx. Museum of Science and  History. There we saw the history of Beavers.

That was an experience that I still remember to this day. 

I looked up Beavers today and found this YouTube:  Omni Imax Forth Worth Tx. Museum of Science and  History.
