There are several factors which determine how long a property remains at “zero balance” after a successful Integrated Wild Pig Control® (IWPC®) program has been implemented. Future reproduction and migration would have to come from adjacent properties since an effective IWPC® program would prevent escapes, method education and reproduction from the entire generation of feral pigs living on the property.
- Are neighboring landowners implementing a successful IWPC® program?
- Are there enough trained Hog Control Operators™ in the county to effectively implement the IWPC® program?
- Has the state passed legislation to stop intrastate and interstate transportation of feral pigs?
- How well are law enforcement personnel enforcing these rules in the state?
- Are judges and the court system prosecuting those breaking the rules with heavy fines?
- How many criminals are illegally transporting and releasing new feral pig populations in the county?
The amount of time a property remains at “zero balance” greatly depends on the answers to the above six questions.
