Watch out for Muskrats

Watch out for Muskrats

Category : Pond

Spring is here and muskrats are active and looking for new homes.  If you see something like this swimming in your pond then you need to take action now.

These guys can damage your pond by digging into the sides or dam and causing your pond to leak or even have the dam break.  Most of the time there holes are below water level so they might be hard to spot. They are omnivorous but feed mostly on aquatic vegetation, cattales being a favorite.

If you suspect you have muskrat living in you pond take action today before it is too late.
