When it comes to animal control issues, coyotes can be one of the most dangerous pests to small children and domesticated animals, especially when they are hunting in bands. They can smell prey from a very far distance. Coyotes are opportunistic hunters and foragers, and as voracious omnivores, they will eat just about anything including rodents, rabbits, cats, guinea pigs, chickens, ducks, small dogs, pet food and anything they consider edible out of a garbage can. They are extremely flexible and adapt very well to different environments and live among us in cities and towns because finding food here is much too easy.
The Coyote is a predatory species of canine measuring about 32 to 37 inches from head to rump, with a bushy tail that adds about 16 inches to their length. They weigh between 20 and 34 pounds and have pointed ears and a narrow muzzle. Males tend to be larger than females. Their pelts are usually grayish-brown, often with a patch of white in the chest. Coyote tracks are narrower and more elongated than dog tracks. Coyotes have a high reproduction rate and mate in late January through early March. After a 60 to 65-day gestation period an average of 4 to 5 coyote pups will be born. Both parents care for the young, and dens are typically in burrows, hollow logs, or dense vegetation. Coyotes can dig their own burrows but prefer enlarging a pre-existing burrow to den in. Coyotes can live up to 10 years in the wild.
Coyotes, like foxes and most canines, carry rabies. Canine distemper is also a huge risk to pups that are three to six months old. Coyotes carry many parasites and bacteria like leptospirosis, ringworm, roundworms, hookworms and are vectors for the diseases that fleas and ticks can transmit. Sick coyotes are identifiable by behavior such as walking in circles or swaying with their head hung very low. Regardless of behavior, coyotes should never be approached, and it is illegal to feed them.
If you suspect you have a coyote problem, you should contact Custom Pest Solutions immediately. We use only the most up to date coyote removal equipment and techniques to eliminate your problem so your family and your pets can live in peace.
Our priority when we first arrive on your property is to perform a thorough inspection to determine where the coyote’s den is located and how much damage it has caused. Each situation is different therefore each situation must be carefully inspected so that we can develop a custom coyote removal solution to fit your needs.
We then start the coyote removal process by setting traps to remove it. Traps are checked and monitored by our staff until we are satisfied all coyotes have been removed from your property.
What should I do if I encounter a coyote?
Make yourself appear the bigger threat. Stand tall and stare into the eyes of the coyote. Do not run or turn your back. Running will awake the coyotes' instincts to chase you and it then may see you as prey. "Haze" the coyote by yelling, stomping your feet, and throwing a rock or limb at the area around the coyote until it leaves; then you too should go. If it is February through July during their pup season do not haze the coyote since coyotes will fiercely defend their dens. Instead, walk calmly away from the coyote, without turning your back to it. Maintain eye contact to assert your ground. If you are walking a smaller dog, pick it up. For larger dogs, pull them in close to you. Always maintain control of your pet
How can I help prevent coyotes from moving into my property?
Remove any active food source. Available food left either intentionally or unintentionally will attract many other wildlife species including coyotes and make them more comfortable around people.
