Wild pigs are nonnative, invasive species that possess biological and behavioral traits that enable them to live in just about any environment and quickly populate new areas. As a result, their numbers and the ensuing damage they cause to the landscape can be difficult to control once a population has become established. In order to eradicate wild pig populations or reduce their damage to acceptable levels, land owners and land managers need to think in terms of large-scale removal on an annual basis. Currently, trapping is the most effective and efficient practice to remove large numbers of pigs.
