wild hog in the woods

Destructive Pests

Controlling and repairing wild hog damage in the U.S. costs roughly 1.5 billion dollars each year. The pests cause many problems for farmers but are also nuisances to homeowners. In addition to spreading disease and degrading water quality, their behavior can cause costly property damage.

Problems Posed by Wild Hogs

Most wild hog damage is the result of the pests' digging habits. These animals wallow in mud and root in the ground to forage for food. The holes they leave behind are unsightly and create tripping hazards for people and livestock. Water-filled wallows may also serve as breeding grounds for mosquitoes and other problem pests.

In addition to issues caused by digging, wild hog damage to properties can include the following:

  • Scratches left on fencing, telephone poles, and trees
  • Vehicle collisions caused when wild hogs cross roads
  • Trampled or uprooted crops and garden plants
