Frequently Asked Questions

What attracts coyotes to an area?

Coyotes are attracted to neighborhoods due to the availability of their natural food sources and due to ample garbage, pet food, and birdfeeders. In addition, some residents illegally place food out for coyotes, which compounds the problem. Some coyotes have also discovered that pets are easy prey.

What months are coyotes most active?

Coyotes are not strictly nocturnal. They may be observed during the day, but are generally more active after sunset and at night. You may see and hear coyotes more during mating season (January - March) and when the young are dispersing from family groups (October - January).

How do you befriend a coyote?

So please do not feed or befriend a coyote! Give them the cold shoulder by practicing complete avoidance. Always walk away from a coyote so as not to crowd it or to invite friendship. Wild animals may be unpredictable, but also we want our urban coyotes to remain wild by giving them the space they need.

Will coyotes come into a fenced yard?

Coyotes can easily jump 6-foot fences, and can scale taller ones that give them toe holds, such as cyclone fences. To protect your yard, fences needs to be at least 8 feet tall and made of smooth materials that won't allow the coyote traction. If you already have a fence, install “coyote rollers” on top.

Is there any way to keep Coyotes out of my yard?

Electric fences really won’t keep coyotes out. The fence needs to be sturdy and tall enough that they can’t jump out. However, electric woven wire MIGHT be effective in keeping coyotes out. The only thing I will say other thing I will say about this is that coyotes are diggers. They will dig down underneath the fence to get in successfully.

Why are there so many coyotes in the area?

In fact, one of the reasons the coyote population is thriving is because wolf populations are decreasing. Using wolf urine around your property sends the message to coyotes that this territory is taken. Once they smell the urine, coyotes believe a wolf is in the area and stay away.

When is the best time to get rid of coyotes?

Cowardly ones, though. That being said: They still need to be controlled. Fall is the time to do it because Winter is when they run out of food sources. It’s when you’ll hear them crying…testing the waters to see if they can tip toe onto your property. With these methods in place, you won’t have to worry about coyotes.
