Muskrats Information Sheet

Problems with Muskrats

The main complaints we get are:
Muskrats are burrowing in the sides of my pond
Muskrats are chewing on my dock

About Muskrats

Muskrats are know for causing really bad erosion problems.
They will burrow in the sides of a pond or lake and cause the sides to start to cave in.
They will also chew on the underside of a boat dock and cause expensive repairs.

How to get rid of Muskrats

A-1 Wildlife Service can put together a program to exclude the muskrats from your yard.
