Does motion detector lights frighten coyotes?
We just moved onto about 4 acres. We have woods a few acres behind us & neighbors nearby (not too close). Coyotes are a problem around here. We can occasionally hear them in the distance. Last night my husband heard a coyote ruckus by the detached garage (evidence this morning that they were after something). He turned on the back porch light & the noise stopped.
My husband wants to put up lights that come on at dusk. I am wondering if it would be better to put up motion detector flood lights. Would they work by surprising the coyotes? Any thoughts/ suggestions would be great.
