Michigan Muskrat Control, Removal, & Trapping
Things You Should Know About Muskrats in Michigan
Lifespan is 1-3 years
Native to North America
Muskrats are omnivores
Muskrats are active year round.
Females have 2-3 litters per year.
Muskrats live in ponds and lakes usually close to weeds, cattails and other vegetation. Muskrats eat weeds, other vegetation, and sometimes frogs and small fish.
Nuisance Problems: Besides eating homeowners vegetation around ponds, rivers and lakes, they will burrow into banks causing them to erode and cave in. Muskrats also do damage to seawalls, retaining walls, and docks.
Signs You May Have a Muskrat Problem
- Muskrat tracks
- Muskrat Droppings
- Feeding platforms
- Muskrat burrow entrances
- Leaking ponds or dams
- Collapsed banks
Problem Solvers: Because muskrats live in families or colonies we use colony traps to remove and relocate. We have found fresh green apples to be the best source of bait. Other traps we use are body grip and live cage traps.
