The BoarBuster™ is a revolutionary trap system that is fully suspended and can be observed and dropped remotely from anywhere with Internet service.
The automated trap sends text or email messages upon motion activation and streams live video through a designated Web server. This trap technology allows the user to observe and activate the traps via smartphone or computer.
The suspended feature of the trap allows animals to enter or leave from all directions, eliminating trap-wary behavior associated with conventional trap gates. The user-activated trigger eliminates non-target animals from being captured. The corral design allows for captured hogs to be loaded out through an integrated door when convenient. Preliminary data suggests that the BoarBuster trap has the potential to capture 88 percent of the hogs from established populations while reducing the labor time per hog to one-third of that needed by drop-nets and corral traps.
The BoarBuster™ trap technology was designed at the Noble Foundation to help mitigate the economic and ecologic damage caused by growing populations of feral hogs in the U.S. and other countries. The Noble Foundation worked with Tactical Electronics and WW Livestock Systems to bring this technology to the marketplace.
