Coyote Rollers

While there are plenty of reasons to love living in Las Vegas and Henderson, one particular drawback is the coyote population. Although some debate lies in whether we are encroaching on their land or they’re intruding on ours, the fact is, coyotes are increasingly becoming a menace in our area and if you have children, small pets or simply enjoy the relaxation of a day spent in your yard, coyotes are a direct threat.

What Makes Coyotes So Dangerous?

  • Fast, cunning and known for their skills in stealth, coyotes excel at sneaking up on prey. Chances are, by the time you or your pet spot a coyote, it has already studied you and deduced its plan of attack.
  • Because coyotes characteristically travel in packs, you are more likely to encounter several at a time.
  • These packs rely on having enough space to live and hunt and are therefore quite territorial. The pack views people and pets whose residences encroach on their territory as a direct threat to their survival. Increasingly, rather than retreat, coyotes are lashing out at these perceived threats.

Are Coyote Attacks Really an Issue?

Over the last several years, coyotes have become more brazen in their attacks on humans and their beloved domestic animals. One needs only to turn on the local news to see the devastating effects a coyote attack can have on a family.

How Can I Protect My Family?

Among the most effective ways to protect your family and pets from a coyote attack is to prevent coyotes from getting into your yard in the first place. While there are various ways of deterring coyotes, the best way to keep them at bay is to have a tall, sturdy fence. That said, coyotes are powerful jumpers and can easily clear fences of several times their size. As we’ve seen increasingly in the media, an adult coyote is able to scale even a five foot-tall fence with ease.

In the past, there have been various ways of fortifying fences to guard against coyotes. From the use of lethal deterrents such as barbed wire, to more humane solutions such as greasing wall and fence surfaces, humans have repeatedly attempted to devise a convenient, hassle-free way to keep their families safe. With the introduction of coyote rollers, we’ve finally succeeded.

What is a Coyote Roller?

The coyote roller is a rolling iron bar welded to the top of your new or existing fence, which prevents coyotes from getting their footing on the structure and climbing into your yard. When the coyote tries to scale the fence, his feet inevitably hit the roll bar, which keeps him from maintaining his grip, and results in him being literally rolled off.

Do Coyote Rollers Really Work?

In a word, YES! When San Diego began experiencing the scourge of coyote attacks, coyote rollers became an instrumental tool in safeguarding the area’s families and pets. Further, the Nevada Division of Wildlife recommends coyote rollers as both a humane and effective way to keep coyotes from entering your yard.
