Coyote Control & RemovalCoyote Control

Relatives of wolves and domestic dogs, coyotes' natural habitats are slowly encroaching on human-inhabited areas. Their main threat is their propensity for attacking and killing livestock, especially chickens. They've also been known to injure or kill domestic pets.

Coyotes are known for being nocturnal, and their distinctive high-pitched yowls give away their presence on your property. If you hear the cries of these medium-sized dogs or have mysterious chicken deaths, call Wildlife X Team® at (817) 431-3007 today and our team will come deter the coyotes from your property!

What Do Coyotes Look Like?

  • Coyote fur colors can vary—it ranges from gray, white, brown or tan—depending on where they live.
  • Coyotes usually range from 32–38 inches (the size of a medium dog breed like an Australian shepherd, for example)
  • Their tails add an additional 16 inches
  • Coyotes usually weigh anywhere between 20 to 50 pounds

What Do Coyotes Eat?

  • Like many wildlife critters, coyotes are omnivorous and not picky when it comes to sustenance. Their preferred food is small prey like rabbits, squirrels, and rodents, but they also eat fruit.
  • Coyotes will kill and eat chickens and other livestock.
  • Like wolves, coyotes sometimes hunt in packs and will as one unit to kill larger prey like deer.

Common Coyote Problems

Coyotes are wary of humans—so much so that simply seeing a person will be enough to scare them away—so they do not get into homes often, and as such, their damage is primarily outdoors. However, if coyotes are in search of food, they often scavenge, which occasionally leads them into people's homes.

Despite the fact that they don't typically come near humans, coyotes are still a nuisance and shouldn't be approached. They may look like domestic dogs, but they are wild animals—their teeth are sharp and made to attack prey, and they won't hesitate to do so if they feel threatened. Coyotes are pack animals, like wolves, so where there's one coyote, there's likely several. Some common coyote issues you may encounter on your property include the following:

  • Slaughtered livestock (pets like cats and dogs are also at risk)
  • Coyotes are transmitters of diseases, some of which can be potentially fatal
  • Knocked over trash cans in their search for food

Do I Really Need to Worry About Coyotes?

You should be cautious about coyotes on your property, especially if you have a pet dog or cat, or livestock (especially poultry). You shouldn't attempt to control coyote populations yourself, though—this is a job for a professional wildlife removal team like Wildlife X Team®. We provide full-service coyote control, from removal to prevention. Call (817) 431-3007 today!
