If you are experiencing feral hog damage on your property, you need an effective and long-term solution.
Feral hogs are not native to the area near Wesley Chapel, Florida. They have, however, been in Florida for a long time, ever since the Spanish explorers released them. As their population has increased over time and the amount of wild land has decreased, they have become more of a problem for communities, land developers, HOAs, property owners and more. If you have noticed feral hog damage on your property, it is important to understand that this is not a problem that will just go away or get better on its own.
Here are some facts to know about feral hog damage:
- The damage can escalate quickly. A single group of feral hogs usually includes over 20 individuals but can total more than 100.
- A group of feral hogs can damage an entire acre of land in less than an hour with their rooting, digging and other behaviors.
- It is estimated that feral hog damage can total more than $1.5 billion a year. This damage can affect residential properties, commercial properties, agricultural farms and even protected forests and other natural land.
