Mostly roots/tubers

This article tells us what they like to eat.

https://animals.mom.me/list-foods-fe...-eat-9893.html

It also says that some animals do eat them, and lists which do. Release some bobcats, wolves, foxes, bears, raptors, big birds of prey and crocodiles into the neighborhood. This should take care of the problem.

The new, big caliber air rifles should do the trick. Head shot from 50 yds or less. Or, really bright motion sensing leds should deter them for a bit.

Are there some woods or something behind the house, past the grass, and out of sight? If yes, set up a corn feeder back in there to keep them focused on that and not on the lawn.

That'd be like handing out free EBT cards in the community next door.

Crushed clay pigeons covered in mayonnaise. Only the pigs will eat them, no collateral damage to other animals.

you could cut a sponge in 4x4 sections, cover in mayo or any other flavorful food and lay out where they root. they will swallow the sponge, then wonder off, sponge blocks up intestines and they die!

all that is going to do is attract more hogs and more of a problem!

Yep, the precharge air guns can get you up in the 45 acp power levels. Good to 50 yards, you bet ya. https://www.pyramydair.com/s/m/Seneca_Big_Bore_909S/516

Broken glass bottles along with mixed garbage in a feed troth will also do the trick right quick.

So in that case it sounds like the responsibility of the HOA. Have you notified them ?

You are screwed. Hope you like your new friends.

Whatever you do, don't put any food anywhere hoping they will stay elsewhere. They won't. They will just invite their friends to come eat the food you put out and then you will have more of the bastards.

Can you poison them? The trick mentioned above works. Take some clay pigeons, a 1 pound bucket of plaster of paris or quickrete, and smash it all up with some mayo.
Realize they might die on your property.
Realize that yellow jackets and meat bees eat rotting carcasses.
A hog rotting in the woods will have the most awesomest swarm of yellow jackets in no time. Make sure you try keep track of where they go to die. Hook a chain to em and drag em with a 4 wheeler somewhere remote before the swarms come.
