Homeland Advisory Group has launched a new Eradication Planning service to approach this emerging problem in a cost effective, humane and efficient manner. Professionally organized systematic extermination programs have proved their success in cases such as the wild boar eradication program at the Channel Islands by the National Park Service.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture reports that huge, ever-growing packs of feral pigs all the way from Texas to California to Michigan and in New York. These pigs are running rampant, destroying crops, killing wildlife and spreading disease everywhere they go. “It’s estimated there are at least 4 million of them nationwide, but its impossible to count them all so there may be much more” said Carol Bannerman, a spokesman for the USDA Wildlife Services.
These pigs have no natural predators and their breeding cycle is unrivaled. The problem had reached a serious level “Because of the impact it has on everything from agriculture to natural resources and humans’ health and safety, its an extremely important problem,” Bannerman said.
