There are those who would tell you that we (people) infiltrated on the space of wildlife and for that we are doomed. In fact, there are those who believe human beings are the predator that should be eradicated from natural life. As a matter of fact, there are probably people who will make attempts to eradicate humanity from character in order to save the wildlife. Global Warming efforts, laws, and concepts are plots directed at this effort – but they too will fail.
There’s a better solution:
Live in peace with wildlife, by using our greater intelligence to remove their threat from our course of action of existence while allowing them freedom to roam all other parts of the world.
Like, hey, you say? Of course, there are costs to this simplistic approach to the issue. We would then be forced to keep inside our course of action of existence. Since when has man been willing to live within a container? Not on my watch… I can assure you, there’s no course of action, box or other container that will keep me contained. I tend to move past the boundaries to the outer edges, so to speak, of my reality. So, consequently being the case, I have a few suggestions for removing coyotes from your vicinity of existence.
If you live near a waterway (river, stream, creek, etc) coyotes will be your neighbor. Get used to the idea. However, they don’t have to be a threat to your survival.
— A little ammonia goes a long ways. Just poor a few drops into the trash bag before you tie it up. The ammonia deters coyotes from tearing into that bag and probably away from the rest of the trash in the dumpster. (At the very least, your neighbors will appreciate that the coyotes, cats and stray dogs aren’t spreading your trash all over their neighborhood.)
— Christmas lights flashing on the deck, around the yard and in those places where you go regularly will help deter the coyotes from going there too. They don’t like the flashing or twinkling of lights and avoid those areas freely. So, keep those Christmas lights twinkling all year long. Besides, Christmas lights are an awesome way to light up the neighborhood with some color and cheer. Think white lights for year round use!
— Noise, the repetitive kind, like music sends the coyotes looking for some other place to dance. They don’t like rhythm and blues, so put a speaker on the deck and turn the music down low so your other neighbors don’t complain. The low quantity rhythm will be enough to deter the furry pests and your deck or patio guest will be safe to dance into the wee hours of the night.
Use character friendly deterrents to eradicate your pests and love the place where you live.
