Hello, my friends, agriculture is not only affected by weather.
Factors such as drought or flood farmers and ranchers in the United States must also suffer damage from animals such as wild boar, whitetail, deer, coyotes and wild turkeys.
If you live in the suburbs and Countryside of Texas or California chances are you'll, see deer and wild boars leaving the woods and heading towards the Garden in search of food.
Although they may seem innocent, they are known to be two of the most destructive Wildlife species.
In addition, coyotes are also the most annoying Predators for cattle ranchers.
According to a report by farmers in Texas and California in 2021, wild boar costs them about 1.7 billion dollars.
In particular, the vegetable production industry in California has suffered about 650 million dollars in damage caused by wildlife foreign.
This is a herd of wild boar in the city of San Antonio in the south of Texas.
In recent years, Texas has always been the state with the largest number of wild boar in the country, with about 3.5 to 4 million heads accounting for nearly half of the country's wild boar population.
Female wild boars usually start breeding when they are six months old.
Each year a female wild boar usually has one litter, and the number of piglets born is about 10 to 15., with the ability to reproduce quickly and adapt.
Well, the number of wild boar in the United States has always remained High, even though millions of pigs are killed each year by hunters across the country.
Foreign ly, in addition to Texas, wild boar, is also very popular in states such as Florida, Georgia, Alabama and Southern California.
It is estimated that each year this animal causes agricultural losses across the country of about 2.7 billion dollars.
Although they are wild animals and often live hidden in the forests.
The herds of wild boar do not hesitate to head to the fields when they discover.
There is an abundant food source.
Large fields of corn, vegetables or wheat are often the favorite destinations for wild boar herds.
They can even hide and destroy crops there for weeks before leaving imagine what would happen if a herd of about 25 wild boars visited your corn farm and stayed there for one week considered an invasive species, an extremely harmful to agriculture in the United States wild boar is considered an unprotected animal Most states in the United States encourage people to trap and Hunt while bork, without a limit to minimize the impact on agriculture after being trapped.
These wild boars will be killed by humans before being brought home to be processed or sold to restaurants.
It is estimated that every year between two and a half and three million wild boars are killed by hunters.
However, this does not reduce the number of invasive species, because their ability to reproduce and adapt is very good.
Many farmers even killed dozens of wild boar and do not bother to pick up their carcasses just because they are so used to Wild Boar meat.
Oh foreign ball coyotes are also one of the most annoying animals for ranchers in the United States.
Today, coyotes are found in every state of the United States, except for Hawaii, and there is almost no animal in the United States, better adapted to changing conditions than this.
Female coyotes normally become pregnant when they reach one year old and the gestation period lasts just two months.
Thanks to the ability to adapt to extremely good living conditions and few natural enemies.
The number of coyotes in the United States has always increased rapidly.
According to estimates by the United States fish and wildlife service, California is home to the largest number of coyotes with about 750 000 creatures.
This number may actually be much different in reality, because the ability of this animal to reproduce is very good.
Foreign spend most of the day rhyming the forests and at night time is usually the time when they go foraging.
This is also the time when many coyotes come close to livestock Farms to feed their food is usually small rodents and the carcasses are dead animals.
In addition, it is not uncommon for coyotes to attack and kill farm animals.
According to USDA statistics, each year in the United States about 117 000 livestock animals are killed by Coyotes.
This is also the wild animal that is responsible for the most loss of life right foreign, to limit the impact of coyotes on agriculture and to prevent population explosions of this species.
Most states allow the hunting of this animal for 12 months of the year each year, hunters in the U.S kill about 550, 000 coyotes and most coyotes killed, live fairly close to livestock Farms foreign foreign s that damage U.S agriculture.
The whitetail deer cannot be ignored even more.
The damage caused by this animal to American farmers is greater than wild boar.
Currently, there are about 36.7 million deer living in the United States, of which the number of white-tailed deer accounts for 81 percent.
Basically, the behavior of a white-tailed deer is quite similar to wild boar.
They usually spend most of their time wandering in the forests when spotted next to the living areas where there are Fields or crops.
The white deer will not miss the opportunity to feed.
According to USDA estimates in June 2022 white-tailed deer cost U.S agriculture about 2.5 billion dollars.
This species is responsible for 58 of crop losses and 33 percent of vegetable loss across the country.
In addition, the white-tailed deer is also the cause of hundreds of traffic accidents each year across the country.
