Coyote Control

(Available only to 100+ acre properties within a 75-mile radius of Atlanta.)

A coyote in the forest in Georgia

Coyotes are medium-sized canines that are common in Georgia.

Coyotes belong to the family Canidae (or Canines), the same family that includes wolves, foxes, and dogs. Their taxonomic name, Canis latrans, literally means "yelping dog;" and the coyote's distinctive cry is becoming a more common sound in the still of the Georgia night as the coyote's numbers continue to increase.

Ranging in size from 35 to 50 pounds, coyotes resemble medium-sized dogs. They have pointy snouts, upright ears, and bushy tails. Their coloration ranges from yellowish red to almost black, but most coyotes in Georgia are mottled gray or brownish-gray in color.

Although they tend to avoid humans, coyotes pose a serious risk to domestic animals and livestock. In many parts of the United States coyotes are the number one cause of predator-related death of livestock. They are very capable, efficient, effective hunters who can easily take down animals like chickens and other poultry, rabbits, sheep, and goats, and have even been known to take down cattle on occasion.

Like all wild carnivores, coyotes also are susceptible to rabies. This makes them a threat to livestock and domestic pets because even aborted attacks may expose the domestic animal to the coyote's saliva, which is how rabies is transmitted.

Coyote Control

At Rid-A-Critter, we provide coyote control services only on properties of 100 acres or more that are located within a 75-mile radius of Atlanta. Coyotes are usually controlled by trapping. Trapping and handling wild canines is a difficult and dangerous job that shouldn't be attempted by amateurs.

We do not perform coyote control or other wild canine control on residential lots and other small areas. We've tried it in the past, but it's simply not cost-effective. Sorry about that.

Bartering for Coyote Control

If you have a farm or other large piece of land that you want protected from coyotes and other wild canines, and that property is suitable for hunting, we'd love to talk to you about the possibility of a barter. We can provide coyote control and removal services, and in return we'd receive a hunting lease for small, well-supervised groups of our employees and their families.

Please contact us if you're interested in discussing a barter arrangement. If you call by phone, please ask to speak to Richard Adcock. Thank you.
