    These things are pricey and I'm still not sure I get what it does. You attach it to a tree or something and it emits some kind of hissing noise? And it runs on AA batteries? Please do let us know if it works (and how it works, because I just can't picture it)!!! It would be very cool if it does the trick!

    I think I am on week 5 so yes, it think it will take all 8 weeks. It is suppose to sound like a mountian lion, tires on gravel etc but quiet so coyotes can hear it but it won't bug people. You have to descensatize your dogs but mine is only 14 weeks so I think he will adjust quickly. I had two coyotes in the back yard this morning. one 100 feet away and the other 30 feet away. Unless I stay outside the entire time I can't let them out. Of course one got taken from me when I was on the back patio and they were in the flower bed 3 feet from me. Scared the s**t out of me.

    Has anyone tried anything like a scent deterrent? Like maybe mountain lion pee or wolf pee? I know one of the suggestions for keeping smaller critters out of the garden was to use fox or coyote urine as then they think there is a bigger predator on whose turf they have trespassed. Just wondered if that had been tried by anyone for coyotes with even bigger predator urine.
