Coyote Control, Trapping & Removal Services

We can rid you of Coyote problems safely and efficiently

Coyotes are part of the canine family and are found throughout North America. They are clever animals capable of surviving in a wide range of habitats, from desert scrub to mountainous environments and deciduous forests. Coyotes are primarily carnivorous but will take advantage of almost any edible food source. Thanks to urban sprawl, their native ranges have been overrun with human activity, which has led to unwanted interactions. More and more people consider coyotes a major nuisance.

APPEARANCE

Smaller than wolves, coyotes grow to about the same size as medium dog breeds like German shepherds. They have large, pointed ears, narrow muzzles tipped with dark noses, and keen hearing and senses of smell. Most coyotes have grizzled, coarse fur gray or tan in color. Their bushy tails are often tipped with black. Most active at night, coyote howls and high-pitched yelps can be heard when they gather in social groups to hunt or feed.

DIET

As carnivores, coyotes hunt down small animals like squirrels, rabbits, and mice. Packs of the animal can take down larger prey such as deer. Additionally, they are not above scavenging for a meal and will eat carrion or garbage left by humans. Fruits, vegetables, and small creatures like frogs or crayfish also make up a small part of their diets.

HABITAT

The canines can live in nearly any conditions but prefer open plains and thinly forested areas. Their natural habitat ranges from Southern Central America to Northern Canada and across the entirety of the United States. Increasing numbers of coyotes are found in urban environments such as parks given suitable cover from predators. Deserts are also favorite habitats, as they are rife with prey like mice and lizards. We most commonly remove coyotes from properties in GeorgiaTexasNorth CarolinaLouisiana, and South Carolina.

TREATMENT SOLUTIONS

ENTRY INTO HOMES OR BUSINESSES

ENTRY INTO HOMES OR BUSINESSES

Reliable food sources are what mainly attract coyotes to residential areas. As they are timid creatures, coyotes will likely avoid entering houses, but they do enjoy foraging in yards. Unsecured garbage, pet food left outside, and the presence of livestock, like backyard chicken coops or animal pens, all tempt coyotes as they are easy meals.

PROBLEMS & DAMAGE

PROBLEMS & DAMAGE

Coyotes are known carriers of dangerous diseases like rabies, and their presence in urban areas can cause problems when they encounter vehicles on roadways. They are also capable of inflicting severe wounds. Human fatalities aren’t uncommon when multiple coyotes from a pack decide to attack. Additionally, coyotes hunt livestock, game animals, and poultry meant for human consumption. They may even attack pets like cats or small dogs.

PREVENTION & EXCLUSION

PREVENTION & EXCLUSION

Keeping coyotes away from homes and yards usually involves a two-fold strategy. First, residents should remove food sources that draw the animal to the area. Secure garbage in tightly sealed bins, clean up leftovers after picnics or cookouts, bring outdoor pet food inside at night, and secure any livestock or poultry in coops or barns. Secondly, fences can be useful to keep coyotes out, but only if they are partially buried under the ground to thwart digging.

TRAPPING & REMOVAL

TRAPPING & REMOVAL

Most areas of the country allow nuisance coyotes to be removed with a permit from state wildlife officials, and some states allow hunting without restriction. Due to their widespread populations across the country, though, hunting is generally not an effective long-term control method. New packs of coyotes move into unoccupied areas after another has been removed. Therefore, residents are better off contacting local wildlife control experts who have the knowledge, experience, and tools necessary to manage nuisance coyote problems.
