How to Keep Coyotes Away from Your Yard

Thousands of coyotes now roam suburban and urban yards and neighborhoods across coyote2smallAmerica. News reports about coyote attacks on pets and other small animals are becoming more common. People are struggling to find ways of keeping them away. One completely natural, yet innovative solution is the use of wolf urine to repel coyotes.  According to the Wikipedia article Coyote: Interspecific predatory relationships, wolves are one of the few natural predators of coyotes and can compete for hunting habitat.

“The gray wolf is a significant predator of coyotes wherever their ranges overlap. Since the Yellowstone Gray Wolf Reintroduction in 1995 and 1996, the local coyote population went through a dramatic restructuring. Until the wolves returned, Yellowstone National Park had one of the densest and most stable coyote populations in America due to a lack of human impacts. Two years after the wolf reintroductions, the pre-wolf population of coyotes had been reduced 50% through both competitive exclusion and predation. In Grand Teton, coyote densities were 33% lower than normal in the areas where they coexisted with wolves, and 39% lower in the areas of Yellowstone where wolves were reintroduced.”

When coyotes believe wolves are in an area, they will move to a less hazardous habitat. By applying wolf urine around the perimeter of a yard, the homeowner can create the impression that wolves are nearby. The scent of urine is one of the primary ways an animal is warned of the presence of a predator and the smell of the wolf urine tells coyotes that this area could be a dangerous place. The coyote’s instincts kick in and they move to a new territory. In addition an added advantage to using wolf urine is that it is completely natural and safe to use around pets.

Why WolfPee Works When There are No Wolves

How can WolfPee scare a coyote when these coyotes have probably never seen a wolf?

The PeeMan gets this question a lot.  It is a very logical thing to ask and there probably is a very complicated scientific way of explaining it. But here at PredatorPee® we’ve always found our customers’ experiences a lot easier for us to understand and explain.

gray-wolf-head-canis-lupus-436x544So we have coyotes over-running unlikely places like Los Angeles and Chicago – places where you could probably go back decades or maybe centuries before you’d find evidence that a wolf had visited. Yet, we have hundreds of customers in those areas who have found WolfPee extremely effective in keeping coyotes at bay. Even Actress Krysten Ritter had lots to say on Conan’s Late Night Show about how WolfPee took care of her coyote problem in California.

So if a coyote has never seen or even smelled a coyote, how does it know to be scared enough to run away when it gets a whiff of WolfPee? It took a little pondering, but we think we have figured it out.

Just picture the PeeMan living his life in Maine where there are no poisonous snakes of any kind. He has never encountered one in the wild, never heard the rattle of an angry rattler. Now, all of a sudden he is transported to a wooded trail in California and he encounters the tell-tale sound of the rattler! Even before he sees it, all of us here are pretty sure he’d scared “pee-less” so to speak!

We somehow know what to be scared of before we actual encounter the source. So it is with coyotes and other critters. There is some sort of deep-seated fear instinct that is triggered by the smell of PredatorPee® – no matter if the critter has any personal knowledge of the predator itself.

It may not be scientific, but it makes it easy for us to understand how PredatorPee® has been working so well in so many unlikely places around the world for the past 30 years… And that’s our story and we’re stickin’ to it!

How to Protect Pets from Coyotes

This face, though strangely beautiful can be the last thing a poor, unprotected pet will see. The coyote can be a vicious predator.

The following story is unfortunately becoming all too common . . .

Coyote attacks Scituate man’s dog, raises concern

Earlier this month, at about 6 p.m., John Norris was fixing the light on the front door of his Cedar Crest Lane home when he heard his dog, Lucy, barking in the driveway behind him.

“I turned and I saw a coyote,” Norris said. “Lucy went to the edge of the driveway and the coyote shot out and grabbed her by the rear and threw her.”

It all happened so fast, Norris said.

As he ran to his injured dog, the coyote took off.

“I was all concerned about Lucy,” Norris said of the 21-pound Australian labradoodle. “She was really badly injured.”

Coyotes are definitely present in Scituate, where Animal Control Officer Kim Stewart reported receiving sighting reports for more than 20 years.

“Heavily wooded areas are more common, but there are very few areas that we do not have reports of coyotes and in fact they are present in virtually every town in Massachusetts,” she said.

There have been a lot of reports of coyotes being aggressive toward pets, Stewart said. . . . Click here to read more of this article

Well, this is scary for pet owners, but what is to be done? Many articles reference fencing, keeping the food inside, making loud noises, or just learning to understand them. I don’t know about you, but I don’t  really want to get to know a coyote, and I certainly  don’t want to share my back yard with one. Now, I make it my business to know predators, and I sell urines(including coyote) to scare off other critters. As soon as I caught wind of this growing problem a few years back, I did some research and confirmed my hypothesis that the coyote has only a few natural predators, one of which is canis lupis, more commonly known as the wolf! I put 2 and 2 together, and now predatorpee.com .com is selling 100% WolfPee  to deter coyotes. We have sold hundreds of bottles. . .but you don’t have to take my word for it. . .

” I was about to get a gun for the coyotes trying to attack my puppy. But I’m not the gun-slinging type. Was chatting with a lady on the hiking trails and she told me about you. can’t remember her name.” -predatorpee.com customer

“…After we bought your WolfPee last year, we did not have any problems with coyotes whatsoever and we thank you for that. New year and we have three cats we must protect. I thank you and will place my large order soon…”   – Margery F. Walpole, MA 

While I am not a cat lover at all, I do have 2 dogs and I understand the connection pet owners have with their pets and the strong desire to protect them. Coyotes aren’t going to just go away, and we’ve got to be able to protect our pets. Wolf urine provides a safe, natural way to do so. No guns, no walking around your yard banging pots, and certainly no attempting to “get to know” your neighborhood coyotes – just the predator-prey instinct put to use.

Wishing you and Spot or Fluffy or Mittens a happy and safe New Year!

Coast to Coast Coyote Troubles

Greetings from the Pee Farm!

Well, the weather forecasters are predicting a good ole nor’ easter for tomorrow into Friday. Accumulation forecasts are all over the map. As usual, we will see what actually ends up on the ground when all is said and done.

coyote2smallIn the mean time, before hunkering down for the storm, I thought I would squeeze in a blog post. I know that I have posted about the coyote problem that is facing the nation many times, but it is a nuisance that is not going away, and we still haven’t sufficiently gotten the word out about the usefulness of 100% Wolf Pee in combating this situation. Below are articles from states across the nation that have been written in the past few weeks alone. They vary in tone, but they all recognize the growing threat of the coyote to small pets at the very least. One article mentions that the coyote has become the top predator since the eradication of wolf and mountain lion in some areas. Well, it stands to reason that if the wolf is a step above the coyote in the food chain, the coyote has instinctual fear of its natural predator and that is why even if the coyote has never seen a wolf, wolf urine will scare them. But, I will let you make up your own mind about that . . .

Words from the Customers – Part IV

PeeMailHello All!

Well this has just about got to be the rainiest Labor Day weekend I can remember. There are flash flood warnings up across the state and there are more puddles than pavement on the roads. So, while it is soggy outside, I decided what better time to sift through the PeeMail inbox. And it was so full of great testimonials, I just had to pass them on immediately! So, without further ado, let’s hear from the people . . .

“A neighbor told me about your website after he helped me deter rodents from eating my car wires with fox-pee(from your company). We put the fox pee on sponges placed under the hood but not touching the engine.” – Mary

“A man who works here part time I think found it on the internet. It works very well in our new flower beds which possums, raccoons, etc. otherwise like to dig up to get insects. So we have become satisfied customers.” – Ross

“How did I find out about you? Animal Experts, the good folks who take those awful raccoons away, recommended you, and your predator urine. This is my second order, count me as a loyal customer! “- Mary O.

“I came across your website through Google. I have a coyote problem and was concerned about my feral cat population….hard to believe in the semi residential area which I reside in. Predator Pee has worked and I have become your loyal customer. Your service is prompt and accurate! Thanks for your help!” – Kathy

“Good Day, I originally came upon your product through a search engine and have been ordering your product for the last 3 years and have been a very satisfied customer since.”- Wilf

“I saw 100% Coyote Urine, used on TV. It wasn’t advertised, simply used, and I happened to notice the bottle. I Googled the product, and went to your informative website.” – Rue

“I had heard of coyote urine to repel rats from my exterminator. I googled it through Safari and came up with your company. Looking forward to receiving it and sprinkling around my yard.”- Janene

Even More Words from the Customers

PeeMailI am always astounded at the number of emails that I receive from people all over the country telling us how our product works for them. Now, mind  you, I am not astounded that the product works – that’s a given – I am astounded that people will take the time to write me an email about it. Nevertheless, my PeeMail box just keeps filling up! So, without further ado . . .

“HI, I’ve been looking for something to keep my cute chipmunks out of the blackberries. Several people suggested coyote urine. I googled several sites. Yours looked like the “most authentic” – not sure what I mean. The Amazon site had several products, but they had mixed reviews. Some sites had general “predator urine“. I think I liked that you are in Maine.” – Phyllis

"This is at least my fifth reorder for 16 oz  BOBCATPEE spray. I originally found you about ten years ago by 

internet search (I think it was Google) for “Bobcat urine,” after hearing a comment on radio about bobcat urine being effective in keeping rodents out of the engine compartment. . . .We are in a rural area with an abundance of rats and mice. A few spray shots in the engine compartment of our two vehicles every one to two weeks or so generally keeps them out. When I’m negligent and it goes for several weeks without spraying, I get loaded with juniper tree branches, sticks, and droppings, etc. plus fire hazard and several times in the past, wiring gnawing damage. We also spray the corners of outside doors to hold down night deposits of droppings and ratpee. Aside from that, this is “The Land of Enchantment.” – Stan

“I found you on Google while searching for “predator urine for raccoons”. I’m going camping and heard that this was the best thing to keep the raccoons out of the
camp ground. ” – Athena

“I originally purchased coyote pee at Fleet farm in Minnesota. When I couldn’t find it one year I started ordering it on line. I used Google search engine. Love the product.”  – Mary

“HI THERE, I FOUND OUT BY SEARCHING THE INTERNET ORDERED YOUR PRODUCT AND FOUND IT TO BE
THE BEST STUFF AROUND. HOPE THAT HELPS YOU, THANKS PAULA”

“Hi, found you on google by searching “fisher scent” and you came up. Being from Maine I was psyched to see you are a Maine company. – Kate”

“I have ordered in the past. Found you on the Internet searching for something to keep the coyotes away from my cats. “- Kym

PeeMail

Hello again!

I get lots of interesting things in my PeeMail inbox, and I just don’t think it would be right to keep it to myself. So, I will give you a glimpse into what some of our customers are saying about buying PredatorPee for their organic, all natural pest control needs.

“Hi, I have a very bad rabbit problem and someone mentioned that predator urine helps, so I looked up rabbit deterrent / urine and bingo there you were. I checked out other web sites, but yours was so informative and is displayed in a way that even I can understand. . . .”
Thanks,
Vance

“A neighbor spotted a large coyote today….strolling through his yard…I did a little research with WA Dept. of Game and others…..I found your site via Google……and the site did not seem as hokey as some…..So I thought it would be worth a try…..it might also keep the deer away……” William

“I have a longtime problem with squirrels in my attic that seven or eight pest control firms have not been able to resolve. I just googled ‘squirrels in attic’ again and found a reference to fox urine as a possible solution, then searched for that and found you. The latest ‘solution’ — a strobe light — hasn’t worked. Hoping this does.” Philip

“Found you via a Google search for coyote urine. I have a family under my deck that I am desperate to be rid of without the hassle of live trapping. Had a raccoon kill my entire colony of Purple Martins last year. Hoping the product will work. Thanks….”Tonya

“Hi…..I”m looking forward to receiving my order from you! I heard about you this morning on Facebook. I follow a page called The Chicken
Chick, and she posted an article today about keeping rodents away from chicken coops. Bobcat Urine was one of the suggestions, and there was a link in the article directly to your site. So I placed my order. =)
Thanks!” Alexis

“I found out about your company through searching on Google. I loved Nate’s personality and the quick response I got when I called. The money back guarantee and free shipping was nice too but I have to say that it was Nate that sold me on the product. He was so willing to help me and explain in detail what to do. Thanks Nate!  Have a great day and continued success!” -Stacey

(FYI Nate is my right hand man – great on the phone – talking on the phone is not my favorite)

“I am a previous customer that lives on a deer migration path… I wouldn’t be without my Pee! Deer walk by my garden without touching it. I have no fences in the front yard, and I landscape with edibles. For three years I have successfully employed coyote pee around my property. Thanks for running around behind all those coyotes!”
-Victoria

Well, that is just a sampling of what comes into my inbox every day. New customers and old, some slightly skeptical, some exuberantly  optimistic, and some who just know it is good stuff and it works – my thanks go out to all of  you.

Anyway, hope you are enjoying the early summer and getting outside in  your gardens. I know I have been rototilling to beat the band. Till I find some more words. . . The PeeMan
