I used traps and went in offense instead of defense. Tore out dams and put traps in every slide and run I could find, for when they came back. I hate beavers almost as much as orangello hates bears. They do tons of property damage.

First off, check with local authorities as beavers are protected in certain areas. They play a pivotal role in their ecosystem. Personally I think they do more damage than anything.

If it's all good then traps work very well. I have had much luck with them. Although you will get the occasional smart one who will know to avoid it.

I shot one with a .22lr once and thank goodness I had a 30rd magazine because that badboy didn't take too kindly to being shot. It took me about 20rds to stop him and I was standing on the hood of my 1967 Galaxie 500 when he died. From that point on I used a .223.
