COYOTES ARE EATING OUR WATERMELONS!

Crows and raccoons will poke holes in the watermelons or just scoop some of the insides out, but coyotes will eat them right down to the rinds. If they decide not to eat them on the spot, they will travel across an 80 acre pasture with them. They bite into them, pick them up, and just trot off with them.

Over the years, the only deterrent we have found that works is putting a tomato cage over the watermelons as they start to grow. The coyotes have yet to figure out how to move the cages and the melons can’t be pulled through the wire. We manage to save a few watermelons each year using this method.

Do you have issues with coyotes?  How do you keep them or other animals out of your garden?
