KAPUT-Warfarin Hog Bait Statement

Texas A&M AgriLife Extension is a state-wide leader in educating the public on effective methods of controlling the population of feral hogs. As Kaput only recently received approval from the EPA and TDA, AgriLife Extension has not yet incorporated the use of this product into our educational programming.   We are exploring the benefits and risks associated with warfarin-based products such as Kaput and expect to eventually add this control method to the assortment of management options we educate landowners about, including trapping, shooting, land management, and other population reduction methods.
