Lake Murray is known for many things. Among them the forty-one miles of beautiful shore line, great fishing, and diverse real state opportunities. I am adding beavers to the list!
Like any lake, beavers are part of the natural habitat. Through their engineering proneness they help create ponds and wetlands used by waterfowl, shorebirds, mink muskrats river , fish, amphibians, aquatic plants and other living species. They also like to chew trees and shrubs and while they need to eat, I would prefer it they would stick to the many food options available on the acres of undeveloped lakefront property. Instead, I have a few who seem to think my yard is full of especially tasty treats!
The pictures below show a beaver at work and what is left of one of my favorite trees after Hank (the adopted name I gave to “my” beaver) chomped on it. So what to do? Call Jesse from A All Animal Control. Jesse is a bonifide beaverologist (is there such a thing?) and told me more about beavers than I’ll ever need to know. He also has several eco-friendly methods of dealing with Hank, my furry little rodent lumberjack.
In the meantime, spring has sprung and it’s time to get the boat ready and get out on the "big water" of Lake Murray shown below. So much to do on the Lake, including taking a look at all the great homes for sale!

"Maria was incredible! She was such a breath of fresh air during our first home-buying experience! She answered all of our questions quickly and worked with our crazy schedule. We were truly blessed to have her as our agent, so sad in fact that we hated to say goodbye at our closing. Look forward to working with her again in the future! "
