WHAT ARE COYOTES?

Coyotes are wild canines with a narrow snout, coarse grey-brown fur, and a bushy tail. Adult coyotes are about the same size as medium dog breeds like huskies or German shepherds. Most active at night, coyotes howl and yelp when hunting or feeding in groups. They will eat whatever food is available, including deer, rodents, rabbits, chickens, and small household pets. 

Coyotes will eat whatever food is available, primarily deer, rabbits, or rodents. However, they will eat berries and, unfortunately, attack domestic animals like cats, dogs, or chickens. 

Coyotes are common throughout Wisconsin in grasslands, farmlands, forests, and urban areas with good food and water sources. They make dens out of existing burrows or covered areas to sleep and have their young. Underneath porches, decks, and sheds are other potential places for coyotes to build dens. 

Coyotes breed in late January and February. Coyotes breed in late January and February. The litter size ranges from 5 to 7 pups born in early spring (April or May). The baby coyotes will stay together with the adults until the upcoming fall or winter before going off on their own.

HAVE A PROBLEM WITH COYOTES?

Coyotes are a growing problem in southeastern Wisconsin, especially in Milwaukee’s suburban and urban areas. They are highly adaptable mammals that are becoming more comfortable around people. Coyote attacks on household pets and humans have significantly increased in recent years. We recommend homeowners keep an eye on their cats and dogs when let outside, especially during evening and nighttime hours.

    Coyote Removal & Trapping

    Advanced Wildlife Control is one of the only companies fully equipped and qualified to handle coyote problems in the Milwaukee Area. Since coyotes are becoming a growing problem in urban areas, we work with city and town officials to address these problem canines. 

    Our company believes in humane animal control, but unfortunately, we can not relocate coyotes. They are one of the few animals we have to humanely euthanize when caught.

    Prevention & Exclusion

    After coyote removal, our technicians can seal up any openings to prevent future animal entry. Exclusion and prevention are crucial steps for effective animal control. Securing trash cans and removing outside food sources will help avoid coyote problems. A deck trench will help keep coyotes from digging underneath your deck or shed.
