The importance of wildlife to the ecosystem cannot be overemphasized. Wildlife actually cause the existence of a balanced ecosystem. Wildlife are good tourist attractions among other benefits to humans. Case in point is game meat which is consumed by people. Wildlife also have their destructive part even though they are of benefit to us.
If the population of some wild animals is not controlled, there is a chance that the numbers can grow very big. The overburden to the ecosystem will be detrimental to the environment. A good example are the wild hogs of Texas, United States. Their population in Texas has become so high that they cause damage to the environment. Measures of eradication have been put in place in Texas to control their numbers.
Feral hog removal has been ongoing in Texas for some time. This can be achieved within a short period of time if the right measures are employed. Note that the removal process should be handled with care, bearing in mind that they are wild animals that can pose dangers to humans. Expertise should therefore be employed. Do also consider that the animals have rights too. This means that whichever method employed to eradicate these destructive wild pigs must be gentle.
There are basically two ways of eradicating the wild hogs in places such as Texas. First of all, you can try to capture them alive and relocate them to places that are not overpopulated with this species of hogs. Killing to reduce their numbers is the second method. Whichever option between the two requires special skills and knowledge to execute. The hunting of the wild hogs can be made easy if domestic dogs are used. Dogs have been used for a very long time due to their ability to sniff the scent of the hogs.
Other than dogs, you can also use traps. Traps of many types in the world. The traps have been improved to include some technology to make the entire trapping easy. For instance, Lone Star Trapping is a common method employed in Texas in the eradication of the wild hogs. The trap has been of benefit in Texas due to its high rate of catching the invasive wild hogs.
There are sophisticated traps that use thermal sensors that have been in use in the world for some time. The thermal sensors make it easy to locate the wild hogs in the jungle. These traps have a high chance of catching the wild hogs than the traditional methods. Some people have actually been hunting the wild hogs with the intention of consuming them since they are actually edible. Finally, it is important that all measures are employed in places where the population of the wild hogs is very high so that the ecosystem of the place can be balanced and the environment can be conserved.
