Tired of muskrats chewing up your shoreline? Just let us know.
Muskrats and other furry troublemakers can wreck your shoreline. Fortunately, we’ve developed a tried-and-true method to keep them at bay. Whether it’s a riprapped shoreline or a shoreline populated with wild native grasses, we’ve got you covered.
Although they’re clever enough that we can’t call our steel armor animal-proof, it is animal-resistant.
Muskrats can gnaw through the cheap landscape fabric most shorelines are built on, but they’ll never chew through our blanket of steel mesh. They may try, but our vinyl-coated 1’’ 20-gauge hexagonal wire won’t taste real good.
We use a 72-inch-wide roll of this wire mesh, which leaves us enough slack to extend the coverage approximately 2 feet into the water. This is the key to creating a muskrat-resistant shoreline. In some cases, we’ll even use two or three rolls to extend coverage up a steep lakeshore or riverbank – fortifying your shoreline on both sides.
If you’re looking to deter muskrats and other stray critters from your shoreline – whether it’s on a lake, creek, river, or stream – ask us about our muskrat-resistant option.
“I would recommend the Lake Shore Guys to anyone looking for shoreline restoration. I had muskrats and they were very knowledgeable and worked with me to find the best solution. This company is trustworthy and does what’s in the best interest of the customer. Great experience!”
