The increasing world population and the erstwhile need for more land mass has resulted in a decrease in coyote natural habitats and this has seen more and more of them dwelling with humans in suburban areas. Coyotes play a huge role in keeping the rodent population down, but their propensity to snack on pets and livestock wearies many a homeowner or farmer.
The nighttime howls of coyotes, especially during mating season, is particularly disturbing as it resembles the sound of a crying baby or a wounded animal – but very much louder! If you simply can’t take it anymore, below are some ways to get rid of the coyotes in your backyard.
How To Get Rid Of Coyotes In Your Yard
Coyotes are not comfortable around humans so there shouldn’t be a good reason to find them in your yard. However, a coyote that’s hungry and finds some source of food available will try to get it. The kinds of food that may attract a coyote can be trash or pet food that you may leave outside. So the first step to getting a coyote away from yard is to get rid of the food source. If you have pet food outside, then move it inside. And you should not leave the garbage outside overnight because that will not only attract coyotes, but other wildlife as well.
If you do have a problem of a returning coyote, you should consider a fence with an outward slant because that will make it harder for a coyote to get in. If a fence is not slanted, then some coyotes will be able to climb. Some people like to see the wildlife in their yard. However, if you’re like many animal lovers, you own a pet and it can soon become the coyote’s next meal. That is why it is so important to keep the coyotes out.
How To Get Rid Of Coyotes In Your Shed
A shed provides adequate shelter for a coyote. So in some places, it is actually common to come across one of them. You should never try to remove the coyote yourself if one has gotten into your shed because a coyote can be defensive and may attack. Coyotes, like many wild animals, can carry rabies which is a mortal disease. To get the coyote out of your shed, open the door and stand away from the entrance. Making some noise will help scare the coyote away. Once the coyote is away, you should make sure that there is no other entrance to your shed that you may not have noticed before.
If there is, you should close it. If you have a dog, that would be a good source for the noise you need. But make sure that the dog is large enough so that it may scare away the coyote. Remember not to keep anything in your shed that may be a food source for the coyotes. There are not many traps big enough to trap a coyote, plus releasing them may be a bit dangerous for someone without the experience. If you don’t want to risk confronting a coyote, you should call a local wildlife management agent or animal control.
