“Catch them ALL!”
We provide professional service in the live capture and removal of nuisance feral hogs.
We target nuisance hogs that destroy or damage:
- Underground sprinkler systems
- Roads, culverts, earthen dams and fence lines
- Cropland, pastureland and rangeland
- Water sources, wetlands, aquifers and watering facilities
When we begin working with you, we will strive to build a relationship based on trust and ensure we deliver our services in an effective efficient trouble free manner. Our trapping philosophy is to capture all hogs that come to the traps using traditional, electronic surveliance and proprietary methods. Our service typically begins with a population/density survey estimate and identification of “hot spots” of hog activity. We determine the size and terrain of affected areas as well as accessibility. We may also begin camera monitoring and set up baiting locations along with property owner interviews as part of the survey. This in turn determines the types, size and numbers of traps, the best strategy for plan implementation and if other removal methods besides trapping are needed.
Typical services include but not limited to:
1. A population/density estimate and assessment of damage. Monitoring includes set up, cameras* and interpretation of images. This step is crucial however not always necessary if damage and hog travel patterns are known or self-evident.
2. Development of best custom-made hog traps as well as a removal strategy. All of our traps have the ability to be electronically monitored and operated. Even box traps
3. Minor brush clearing --as needed.
4. Trap set-up. This includes electronic monitoring and remote trap doors that can be operated via smart phone or computer.
5. Trap baiting -- may require several baiting methods as a result of assessment and interpretation of hog behavior.
6. Trap monitoring --requires several on-site inspections, observations and evaluation of effectiveness of trap and methods.
7. Trap re-location – as a result of trap monitoring and when there is a need for strategic modification to the trap or location of the trap
8. Trap repair -- as needed. It is surprising how much damage a hog can do to a metal trap.
9. Live hog extraction. This may include hands-on wrangling of hogs.
10. Hog trailering and transport off site
*Monitoring includes physical on-site downloading of camera images for evaluation. Or installation of our camera to smart phone or camera to email technology. Nothing beats "boots on the ground" to see what the camera's don't see.
