These large animals cause damage to properties mainly by “rooting”. Rooting is the term used when they uproot large areas of earth in search of food causing unsightly and uneven surfaces.
They also trample plants and lawns and rub themselves against trees and poles to mark their territory. Sometimes they make nests inside dense landscaping or crops such as corn. One of the biggest concerns however is that they can be dangerous to humans. These strong animals have been known to gather in numbers and cause injury and in some instances even death.
Interestingly and alarmingly, domestic pigs can also become feral themselves by interbreeding with wild pigs or boars.

The animals are not harmed by the Ultrasonic frequency but rather encouraged to find a more peaceful area to hang out!
