We have developed an effective feral hog trapping system that begins with getting the feral hogs in the area comfortable with the traps.
Did you know that hogs are considered one of smartest animals on earth? It’s true, and we see it every day in the way that feral hogs can elude being trapped. At Swine Solutions, we have to be extremely cunning, determined, and patient for our feral hog trapping efforts to be successful. One of the main reasons feral hogs have become such a problem in the Brandon, Florida area to begin with because of their ability to outsmart hunters.
Just as any hunter will tell you that they rarely get a deer or other game the moment they enter the hunting area, so it goes with feral hog trapping. It is far from an overnight solution to successfully trap one very crafty and evasive feral hog, much less an entire sounder (the name for a group of feral hogs). What you may not realize is that it is critical that we do remove all of the hogs, as any remaining ones will reproduce and establish themselves once again in your community. Feral hog trapping must involve a complete capture to be an effective solution.
We have developed an effective feral hog trapping system that begins with getting the feral hogs in the area comfortable with the traps. We lure them with a variety of baits so they see the area as a place to get the food they want. Rather than use individual traps, our system will capture multiple feral hogs at once. This is also a safer method, as feral hogs aren’t something you want to tangle with. They weigh several hundred pounds, they can run at speeds up to 30 miles per hour, and they will diligently defend their young. These are all reasons why you should never attempt feral hog trapping on your own. Leave it to us as professionals using the best possible methods. Contact us today to learn more.
