These pests can be very dangerous, especially when in packs. Calling a pest control company is the best thing you can do. They can trap these pests and get rid of them or relocate them elsewhere if needed.

Remove All Food Sources

Remove all sources of food in your yard that may be attracting these pests to your yard. If you have these pests, they may be eating through your food such as a garden or fruit trees. If you have these in your yard, it may be what is attracting the hogs. If you can, block off your garden to keep the hogs out and clean up beneath fruit trees to prevent the hogs from having food to eat. Other food sources may be from things in your yard you have stored such as bales of hay, grass seed, pet food, or other sources of food. If you have hogs in your yard, it's usually because they are finding a good source of food there. Figure out what it is and get rid of it.
