Effective Coyote Removal and Control
Coyotes are carnivorous canines that occupy almost every climate of North America. Coyotes are a cautious species and will usually stick to their natural habitat. However, the loss of habitat and food insecurity can lead coyotes into our environments.
Though coyotes are not known to attack adult humans and large animals, they pose a severe threat to small children, dogs and cats. Additionally, our farms, as their bold packs, can devastate livestock.
Reports from farmers show coyote sightings in Delaware on the rise. In addition, studies show that there have been 159 human victims of coyote attacks and many more on pet dogs and cats.
So, how do you deal with coyotes lurking around your neighborhood?
Coyotes get into your property for one primary reason: food. They’re scavengers and will eat any meat you leave lying around, including in your trash. So step one of coyote control is not to make it easy for them.
As mentioned, coyotes can cause severe damage and harm as well. A sufficiently hungry or bold coyote won’t hesitate to attack small dogs or children. Livestock like chickens are also fair game and can also hunt sheep.
It’s common for coyotes to bite off more than they can eat or chew. As a result, they can leave half-eaten carcasses on your lawn or give your guard dog serious wounds before retreating.
