Coyotes can start a campsite close to your Cincinnati property especially when they find food sources,
thus your first step towards keeping them away is to eliminate food sources especially those
in garbage, trash cans and composite sites. Try as much as possible to remove all junk piles
close to your yard, garage and any other area of your Ohio property. Even after eliminating such
junks, Coyotes may still hover around for a while trying to see if they can find food
Fencing is another options you can consider and it is one of the most effective ways of getting rid of Coyote. Cincinnati coyotes are unable to climb or jump over fences that are higher than 5 ft. in height. Fencing can be concrete, or wired, or a combination of both. Electric fences can also be installed around your property, the purpose of such is to generate electrical impulses that can deter the coyote from returning to the site after receiving electric shock. Electrical fencing does not kill the Ohio coyote, but continuous generation of electrical impulses will force the animal to withdraw.
Trapping is also recommended to keep Cincinnati coyotes away from properties. Body grips are often the most preferred form of trapping, the trap grips the middle section of the animal and then it can be removed and then relocated quite far from any residential area. Other forms of trapping , may include hinged and one-door trap where a bait is set inside the trap and the door is automatically shut as the animal goes in. Shooting of coyotes can also keep them away from your property but such is not recommended in places where legislations do not permit it. Likewise, shooting is not recommended in residential areas. In place of shooting, other forms of keeping coyotes away may include; the use of repellents such as those containing urine smell of Ohio Wolves.
Keeping your entire property clean from debris, piles of rubbish and food items is very important to keep Cincinnati Coyotes away. You need to ensure that your pets are fed indoor and not outdoors, as Coyotes are known to eat the left-overs from pet containers. Coyotes do not only share food with pets outdoor, they may also attack pets and may spread certain diseases unto them. Though repellents may be temporarily effective but Ohio coyotes will quickly get used to them and will eventually know that such repellents will not hurt them in any way.
