Success usually involves an integrated approach that combines good husbandry practives, exclusion, and frightening techniques with effective lethal removal of individual offending animals.
Coyote Control Methods
Most coyote readily cross over, under, or through conventional fences made for residential areas. The response of a coyote to a fence is infuenced by various factors, including the experiance and motivation of the coyote. Total exclusion of all coyotes by fences, especially from large areas, is unlikely. Some coyotes learn to dig under or climb over fences of almost any size. Coyote fences include net-wire fences, electric fences, electric modification of existing fences, portable electric fencing, modification of chain link and other non electric fences.
Devices that frighten coyotes are useful for reducing losses during short periods of time, or until the predators are removed. Avoid habituation and increase the effectiveness by varying the position, appearance, duration, or frequency of the stimuli, or use them in combination. Some audio and visual devices include bells and radios, propane exploders, bright lights, vehicles, live stock guard animals.
The shooting of coyotes is legal in many situations, and it often ranks high amoung the choices for removing a predator. Safety is a critical factor that may preclude the use of firearms. Local regulations may prohibit shooting and neighboring property may be too close for safe shooting. Trapping can be very effective for eliminating coyote in neighborhoods and communities. There are many different trapping devices and techniques such as foothold traps, cable restraints, cage traps and more.
