Plan the Mission

The I.C.E.® Cam photo shows the month is August and the overnight temperature is 82°F. We have established an automatic feeder as a food source. Sounder Intel verifies ten adults and three juveniles for a total of thirteen. We have determined one trained and certified Hog Control Operator™ will employ the trapping process using one M.I.N.E.® Trapping System. Our performance standard is 100% success which means we must remove all thirteen pigs expending the least amount of fuel, time, labor and money.

Mission Assessment

We removed 13 of 13 targeted pigs for a 100% removal success rate. Therefore, we accomplished our performance goals, using a trained and certified Hog Control Operator™, by trapping and shooting during winter months, using our M.I.N.E.® Trapping System and a thermal scoped rifle. The total number of pigs impacted during this mission was 13.

Return on Labor

Our total trapping labor was 3.50 hours. Trapping labor per pig was 21.0 minutes. We arrive at this number by multiplying 3.50 hours times 60 minutes which equals 210 minutes. Divide this number by 10 pigs trapped to equal 21.0 minutes of labor per pig. Total shooting labor was 31.25 hours. Shooting labor per pig was 312.50 minutes.
Episode 19 Return on Labor

The annual damage prevented by trapping was $4,000. Annual damage prevented by shooting was $2,400. To calculate our annual return on labor per method, we must take our annual damage prevented and divide it by the labor hours. $4,000 divided by 3.50 hours gives us a return on labor of $1,142.86 per hour from trapping and $76.80 per hour from shooting.
