The BoarBuster is a research-based, cutting-edge trapping system developed as a solution for managing the nation’s exploding feral hog population.
Feral hogs cause approximately $2 billion in damage to U.S. land and crops each year. Farmers, Ranchers, Hunters, National and State Parks, and Golf Courses all feel the effect of this damage. They pose risks for disease transmission among livestock, pets and humans, while competing for resources with native wildlife and contaminating water supplies.
Research suggests that control methods must eliminate approximately 75% of the population just to keep up with the hogs annual reproductive capacity. Feral pigs can have two and sometimes three litters each year with up to 12 pigs per litter. Conventional trapping systems have an insufficient capture rate of 49% and trapping is often the most effective method to mitigate damage.
Scientific research conducted over a four-year period by The Noble Research Institute demonstrates that the BoarBuster™ feral hog trapping system captures 88% of the animals in a given area, effectively reducing the overall population. Suspended traps limit trap-shy behavior associated with traditional corral traps.
BoarBuster™ can be observed and dropped remotely from anywhere with Internet service, is mobile so you can take the trap to the hogs and easily set up within 30 minutes, and has an integrated load-out door to easily remove hogs from the trap.
