How the M.I.N.E.™ Trapping System Works
The trap gate is eight feet wide and triggered through an onsite transmitter with a 250 yard range or a text message from your cell phone to our M.I.N.E.™ Camera.
The M.I.N.E.™ Camera is the only wireless digital camera capable of remotely triggering the M.I.N.E.™ Gate using a cell phone after sending photos to your email or cell phone via the cellular network.
The M.I.N.E.™ Camera’s remote control technology allows users to send text messages back to the camera, remotely check battery charge, check cellular signal strength, add/remove phone numbers, add/remove e-mail addresses and remotely turn off the camera after hogs are captured.
The 18-60™ trap panel is 16 feet long using 18 horizontal (.220 inch diameter) bars spaced only two inches apart at the bottom to hold the youngest juvenile pigs. The 60 inch height reduces the likelihood of adults going over the top.
This trapping system was developed during three years of research and designed to capture the entire sounder group at one time.
This technology saves fuel, time and labor allowing 24 hour surveillance without wasting daily travel time and expenses to multiple bait sites.
