We can rid you of Wild Hog problems safely and efficiently
Wild hogs, also referred to as feral pigs, were introduced to North America in the 1500s. Since they damage property, spread disease, and negatively affect the environment, their increasing presence in many areas of the U.S. is cause for concern. In fact, government-culling efforts have been instated to thin their numbers. Despite this, it’s estimated that effectively controlling the four to five million wild hogs nationwide would require the removal of almost half their population annually.

Mostly black or brown, wild hogs are covered in thick, coarse hair that may also be red or dark gray, depending on their region. They have stout, barrel-like bodies with short and slender legs. Their faces are relatively long with a straight snout. Small, beady eyes and poor eyesight are also distinguishing characteristics.
While wild pigs will eat almost anything that fits in their mouth, the opportunistic omnivores prefer plant products such as nuts, seeds, buds, and fruits. Insects, worms, small mammals, and the eggs of ground-nesting birds are also staples in their diet.
Originally, wild hogs were introduced in Florida, though they have since expanded their territory further west. As habitat generalists, the pests can live and thrive in virtually any environment. In addition, their high birth rates and long lifespans allow their populations to increase exponentially. Wild pigs are reported to live in at least 45 states.
