Question:
I've heard of plenty sound remedies to keep Coyotes away but, do you have any hard evidence ideas? We have a 3 month old grandchild and warm weather is on the rise so we need some type of resolution.


Replies:
I don't know of any reliable deterrent for coyotes, but I don't think you should worry. I assume an infant will not be left alone, and any adult or older child can easily scare one away should the need arise.
