Wild Boars, Hogs, and Pigs: How Do I Get Rid of Them?

Wild Boar, Wild Pig

Having wild boars running rampant around your property can be a big problem, from them causing damage to crops to hunting and killing other animals. Plus, you don’t want a bunch of wild hogs running around your property and causing distress in the middle of an otherwise peaceful day. The good news is that there are things you can do to get rid of wild boars, hogs and pigs and reclaim your peaceful property once again.

Wild Hog Scram

One of the most popular options when it comes to getting wild boars, hogs and pigs to vacate your property is using wild hog scram. Wild hog scram is specifically designed to keep wild boars and hogs away without exposing you or others on your property to any toxic chemicals. Of course, there is some debate as to whether or not wild hog scram is the best choice for preventing invasions.

For starters, you need to have access to a rotary spreader to make sure you get the wild hog scram spread throughout your property. If it’s not spread well enough, there are going to be spots where hogs can access your property and wreak havoc. Another thing you have to consider with wild hog scram is the fact that you have to be generous with it, spreading it to an area outside of the area that the hogs are affecting. This can make it difficult to cover enough ground to really make a difference when it comes to keeping wild boars away from your property.

Wild Pig Traps

Another option you have at your disposal when it comes to controlling wild boars is setting live traps to capture them alive and release them somewhere else. Live traps are generally considered a pretty good option because they’re humane since the animals aren’t harmed in the trapping process. However, there’s a lot of work involved in trapping and releasing a wild boar, let alone several wild boars that may be invading your property. And wild boars don’t like being handled, so releasing can be dangerous.

If you’re going to set traps to catch wild boars to keep them off your property, it’s best to have it done by a professional. Even then, chances are you’ll have to deal with discovering a wild hog in a trap and having to call an expert at some point. Plus, you have to make sure the boars you do trap are relocated to an area where they won’t cause you any problems in the future, which can be a problem in and of itself.

Preventing Wild Boar Invasions

The good news about dealing with wild boars is that there are things you can do to keep them from invading your property. Of course, this all starts with making sure you’ve got the feral hogs you’re currently dealing with removed from your property so you can create a barrier and start fresh.

One of the best ways to prevent wild hogs from coming onto your property and wreaking havoc is to make sure your crops, vegetables and gardens are properly protected. You can build a fence around any of the areas where you’re growing food to keep wild hogs out, but you have to make sure it’s tall enough and built from the right material. Metal mesh is a great material if you’re trying to build a fence to keep wild hogs out.

You also need to make sure you’re keeping your yard clear of anything that might be attracting hogs, such as garbage and other debris. If that’s not working, you can reapply hog scram occasionally to create a sort of barrier to keep wild boars away from your property.
