How to get rid of Wild Pigs

wild pigs boar pleistocene holocene how to get rid of

Wild boars (Sus scrofa) – are large mammals that are part of the Suidae family. They are native to Eurasia and North Africa but have spread to other continents.

Wild boars are omnivorous and have a varied diet. They usually consume roots, bulbs, tubers, leaves, seeds, fruits, insects, poultry eggs, frogs, etc. Due to their diet, they can be useful in agriculture, keeping certain populations of pests under control. However, when the food in their area is insufficient, wild boars can also venture into populated areas.

Wild boar can be harmful, causing damage to gardens, orchards, but also to agricultural crops (cornfields, potato crops, etc.). Also, these mammals can be aggressive, especially during the mating season (November-January) or in situations where they feel threatened. Although attacks on humans are rare, injuries can be serious. In addition, wild pigs can transmit a series of diseases and parasites, both to domestic animals and to humans.

Signs of infestation

Wild boars are nocturnal animals, so they can be difficult to detect. However, their presence can be detected due to damage to the garden, orchards, vineyards, or crops. They can also break/raise wire fences, creating openings through which other animals can escape.

Other signs of the presence of wild boar: gnawed roots, traces of friction on tree trunks or poles, ravaged portions of land, specific noises, the presence of muddy areas, excrement, and hoof marks.

Methods to keep wild boars at bay

The main method by which wild boars can be controlled is to create and maintain an unwelcoming environment.

As such, it is recommended to remove food sources that may attract wild boar, constantly remove garbage and seal garbage bins. At the same time, it is recommended to fence the area and to consolidate protection fences or replace them with metal, concrete or electric ones.

If the presence of wild boars has been noticed, in order to drive them away, sound devices – animal cannons can be used.

Cannons for wild boars

It’s a type of equipment that emits loud (explosive) noises, used for the safe removal of wild boars from agricultural crops, farms, and other open spaces. Usually, the cannon is powered by a gas cylinder and operates on a piezoelectric motor, being independent of any energy source. Depending on the type of device, the range and frequency of detonations can be programmed or preset.

RECOMMENDED BOAR CANNONS:

Cannons are devices that act by intimidating and driving off wild boars from a certain area. Because the sounds they produce are loud, they are intended for open spaces. They run on gas engines.

Got a question?

    1. Wild pigs will only venture in areas populated by humans when food in the wild is scarce. To be able to get rid of them, you will need to create an unwelcoming environment. This means you should avoid giving them access to water, food or shelter. The best way to keep wild pigs of your property is by building strong fences around tempting sources of food, such as a garden or crops. This way, if they do not reach the food, they will get discouraged and look for a more welcoming area. If you live in an area with a wild pig infestation, it is advisable to fence all of your property, not just around the sources of food you might have.
      To keep wild pigs away, you can also use repellents, such as light or noise sensors, or water sprinklers, that will scare them away. Or you can also try an electronic cannon such as the one below, that is meant to scare birds, foxes, deer and wild pigs from the area. It is designed to help farmers protect their crops, as the noise it makes covers a large area, keeping pests away.

    1. You can try using such a sound system, however, the most effective way of getting rid of wild pigs is by using a propane cannon. They are made specifically for getting rid of wildlife and unwanted birds, and they can protect approximately 1 to 5 acres, depending on the shape and topography of the field. Once set up they will operate unattended, so you can go about your day, without worrying about unwelcome wild pigs on your property.

    Answer
    1. Instead of using a motion light or sprinkler system, you can use a propane canon. It is a more effective way of getting rid of wild pigs. These canons are made specifically for getting rid of wildlife and unwanted birds, and they can protect approximately 1 to 5 acres, depending on the shape and topography of the field. After you set them up, they will release a sonic blast meant to keep wildlife away. The canon will operate unattended after setting the gas regulator at the desired blast interval, so you can go about your day, without worrying about unwelcome wild pigs on your property.

    William Gartshore -
    Answer
    1. Predator urine of bobcats, wolves, bears, or mountain lions fall into the category of olfactory repellents, however, it is unlikely to make a difference in the long term.
      To get rid of wild boars, it is more effective to use electric fences or sonic repellents, such as electronic cannons to keep them away from your crops.
