Coyote Trapping

Coyotes aren’t known for being pest animals, carrying disease, or burrowing into people’s homes, but that doesn’t mean they’re not a nuisance. While these animals are usually timid, rapid urbanization of their habitat has driven them into cities in search of food and shelter.

Behavior & Risk of Coyotes on Your Property

They’ve had to become more clever in order to survive, and coyotes are now turning to pet animals, human garbage, and other wildlife scavenger animals for food. Whether you’re concerned about the safety of your pets, or simply wish a coyote to be relocated from your area, Metro Wildlife and Pest can help. We offer coyote trapping in the Charleston area, and can assist you with removing coyotes or deterring coyotes from your property.

How to Keep Coyotes away from Your Yard

Since coyotes are becoming more commonly encountered in urban and suburban areas, it is very important to keep coyotes away from your property to ensure the safety of your children, pets, and any other animals. Coyotes can cause harm not only to living things, but they can also dig and create other problems. Continue reading to learn how to keep coyotes away from your yard.

Remove Easy Food Sources

One of the best ways to keep coyotes away from your yard is very simple to do and is also free. Since coyotes are generally attracted to yards by the prospect of easy food access, removing these sources will greatly cut down on your problems with coyotes in your yard. This can take many specific steps, but some of the easiest are to quit throwing out food scraps, be sure to secure any garbage, and do not leave pet food outside whenever possible. An additional tip that applies if you have rabbits, chickens, or other small animals is to keep them in coyote-proof enclosures, as coyotes will make every effort to eat them.

Clean Your Yard

Another great way to prevent coyotes is to simply clean up your yard, and this is also completely free and very effective. This is important because a cluttered or unkempt yard creates all kinds of hiding places and food sources for the critters that coyotes commonly eat, such as rats, mice, birds, and other critters. To begin, mow or trim any tall weeds or grass you have in your yard. Once this is done, be sure to pick up any branches, leaves, or other debris around your yard. Finally, be sure to clean up wood piles, rock piles, and any other obvious shelters for small animals. Cleaning your yard and removing easy food sources are excellent ways to prevent coyotes.

Build a Fence

Building a fence is one of the best ways possible to prevent a wide variety of nuisance animals from gaining access to your yard. With so many fence styles available, there will be one that matches the look you want and also provides every benefit you are looking for. While coyotes can dig underneath fences, a fence is enough of a deterrent that most will not even try it. If you are worried about coyotes digging under, there are fences that extend underground some distance in order to prevent digging animals from gaining access to your yard. In addition to preventing coyotes from coming into your yard, a fence can provide privacy and a great place for your pets to be outside without the fear of them running away or coming into contact with predators.

Hire Professionals

One surefire way to prevent coyotes from coming into your yard is to reach out to a wildlife removal company to receive advice and prevention services. These professionals are not only capable of removing any current coyote problems you may have, but they are also very well experienced in preventing any future problems with coyotes. This investment of money can end up paying back large sums in the future as coyotes are barred from coming near your children, your pets, and your property.

Consider Using Repellents

There are many scents that coyotes either cannot stand or scare away from a property. Some of these repellents are purpose-made for coyote prevention, but others are common household goods. Some of the most common options are colognes or perfumes, wolf urine, and store-bought dedicated coyote repellents. Repellents do come with some weaknesses, however, especially when the weather removes the scent rather quickly. This will require you to continually reapply repellents.

Unknown to us, some pigeons had made our attic their home for years. The waste they had accumulated was downright disgusting - and, as I would soon discover, a severe health risk. Anyways, we only noticed the problem when I went to the attic to trace a leaky pipe. I was shocked by the amount of bird waste I saw. I promptly called this company, and they sent technicians to perform a full attic restoration. After they were done, you could not tell that I was dealing with a severe bird problem just the previous day. I was pleased with their service, and the price was worth it!

Excellent service. Communicated well and eliminated the mole problem in my yard which was most important to me. The people were very informative and nice to talk with. They were prompt and came when scheduled. The service was expensive which is my only negative but all other aspects of my experience were positive.
