Barnes Wildlife Control: Skilled Team Of Coyote Trapping Professionals – Your Local Solution to Fox and Coyote Control
Out of all the towns, cities, and municipalities we service, Vandalia, OH seems to have the largest population of coyotes and the most conflicts with coyotes. We believe this is due to the geographic location of the city as its surrounded by two large parks: Taylorsville Reserve and Englewood Metropark. The coyotes flourish in these parks as they have no natural predators and hunting is not allowed. These parks encompass Vandalia from both the east and the west.
Also on the north side of Vandalia sits Dayton International Airport, which also offers safe haven for coyotes as the Federal Aviation Association is not controlling their populations although we have heard of issues with coyotes on the airport runways.
We have successfully captured and removed hundreds of coyotes from Miami Valley cities such as Vandalia, Butler Township, Oakwood, Kettering, Centerville, Miamisburg and Springboro to name the most active areas.

Ohio Fox And Coyote Fact – Coyotes and Foxes Are Not Best of Friends
Have you spotted coyotes in your neighborhood? Coyotes are found in every one of Ohio’s 88 counties and have adapted to live among us inside city limits and rural areas. Over the last two decades, as coyote populations have exploded in southwest Ohio, red and grey fox populations have declined.
Coyotes are now top predators in the Buckeye State, and red foxes are competitors in their food chain, so they need elimination in the coyote’s eye. Coyotes also view domestic pets such as dogs and cats as threats to their food source and, if given the opportunity, will kill dogs and feral cats just for the sake of removing competition.
The main diet of coyotes in the Dayton area other than stray cats is cottontail rabbit, whitetail deer, voles, shrews, field mice, moles, grasshoppers, and occasionally will rummage through garbage. Coyotes rarely attack children or pets unless provoked, but it does happen.
The remaining red fox have survived on similar items as the coyote, except for whitetail deer. The main complaint we hear from Dayton area residents is that foxes are coming into the yard or barn and eating livestock such as chickens and ducks.
This red fox was caught in a trap next to the chicken coop just a few nights after this photo was taken.
One benefit the gray fox has over the red fox is that it can climb trees to escape predation from coyotes, as the red fox cannot climb is often exterminated by packs of coyotes.
