Feral Hog Control in Central Georgia

A group of feral hogs eating plants in a rural field photographed by an animal control company hired to remove them.

Strictly speaking, feral hogs (or feral swine) are pigs that were once pets or livestock, but that escaped and have returned to a wild state. For our purposes, we're also including wild-born offspring and descendants of those pigs.

Also referred to as wild boars or wild pigs, feral hogs are not native wildlife in North America; and like invasive species in general, they cause great harm to the ecosystem.

Wild pigs compete with native animals for resources; hunt for and eat small animals and the young of larger animals; and are involved in the transmission of many diseases, including some zoonotic diseases that can also make humans sick.

Feral swine also cause great damage to forests, field crops, gardens, and ornamental plantings; cause structural damage to buildings; and can contribute to flooding by altering the courses of creeks and streams. They also occasionally attack pets, livestock, and sometimes even humans. Feral hogs can grow to well over 300 pounds, and can get very aggressive when they feel threatened.

Feral Hog Removal and Control

Rid-A-Critter provides feral swine removal in a limited number of service areas. At present, we provide feral pig removal in Crawford, Lamar, Monroe, Pike, Spalding, and Upson Counties in Georgia.

Feral hog removal consists of the following steps:

Once the hogs are caught, they will be humanely euthanized on-site. The landowner is free to keep as many as the pigs as they like for their own consumption. We'll haul the remaining carcasses away. Please note that we cannot transport live hogs. They must be put down before we can remove them.

For more information about feral swine removal or any of our services, please contact us.
