How To Identify Coyote Problems
Coyotes were historically most common on the Great Plains of North America. They have since extended their range from Central America to the Arctic, including all of the United States (except Hawaii). Coyotes live in deserts, swamps, tundra, grasslands, brush, and dense forests. High densities of coyotes also appear in the suburbs of Los Angeles, Pasadena, Phoenix, and other western cities. Coyotes are currently trapped and hunted for threats to livestock and pets. Despite ongoing human persecution Coyotes populations are stable and widespread across the country. Coyotes can easily be identified by their long-range howls consisting of short high-pitched yips followed by eerie howls.
Coyotes are common in a variety of habitats and are largely nocturnal. Coyotes can be found in forested areas, fields or suburban areas. Coyotes bed in sheltered areas but do not generally use dens except when raising young. They may seek shelter underground during severe weather or when closely pursued.
Coyotes are not known to invade or attempt entry to homes. However, Coyotes will wonder around urban and developed areas in search of food. Coyotes are excellent hunters and often traveling in packs of 3-7. Coyotes pose a serious threat to pets and live stock. If you have heard or seen signs of coyotes near your home or business you should immediately call a critter control coyote expert.
