Report Feral Swine

We need your help!

The NC Feral Swine Taskforce (NCFSTF) wants to hear about any sightings, damage, and harvests of feral swine across the state to better understand where feral swine live and what impacts they are having here. NCFSTF is working with landowners to measure feral swine damage and to remove swine directly via effective techniques such as whole-sounder trapping. These efforts are currently focused in Sampson County, and will expand to other parts of the state once the NCFSTF develops the most effective and practical methods for feral swine control in North Carolina.

Get your harvest tested

Testing feral swine for diseases and parasites like the Asian long-horn tick is vital for keeping livestock healthy. Growers and landowners can request free kits for testing fresh feral swine carcasses. These kits test for brucellosis, Seneca Valley Virus, and pseudorabies.

 

Because some feral swine diseases can be transmitted to humans and other animals, always use biosecurity measures such as wearing gloves and sanitizing equipment while handling or disposing of feral swine carcasses.
