I work with a guy who is licensed for pest control. I have been using Blue Streak fly control I buy at Tractor Supply. I do have 1/2 a can of Golden Marlin, but started using Blue Streak because someone told me about it. My co-worker told me to sprinkle boric acid over anything I wanted to use as bait to send coyotes and bobcats to heaven. He told me it was oderless, tasteless, and water resistant. I haven't used this yet. He said it doesn't send the furry creatures to heaven as fast as other poison stuff, but it will do the job.

David check with some log home builders in your area !! They use boric acid to spray the logs to keep down bugs !!!

DC, i have a creek that runs through my farm and the coyotes are in my pasture every night. This is my first year with deer and i wake up at least 3 nights a week from the coyotes crying. Last night after dark the wife and i were sitting on the back porch having a drink. My old (14 years) black lab was laying about 20 foot from us when all the sudden a coyote came running up to her to try and i believe kill her. At her age she still had enough fire in her to run the coyote off. But man that scared the #$^@* out of the wife and i. I went inside to get my gun and by the time i came back out the coyote was gone. Never heard anything elsefrom him last night but it sure does have me worried about my deer all the time.

Four Seasons i have been thinking that i need to do something to thin them out. I'm not quite sure what to do. I thought about contacting someone to come out and set traps at the back of my place where they seem to stay most of the time.

Boric Acid is often used to control cockroaches. I would think that you could get it anywhere. Golden Marlin or Bluestreak fly control would be my first shot.

Goldin Marlin works. You are right, you must be careful with it. Anything that ingests it will being laying right there, you don't have to guess whether or not it worked. They won't go 20 feet.

I'm going to read the ingredients on Golden Marlin and Bluestreak since I have some of each. I'd used Golden Marlin around the barn for flies before but at the time didn't need it for anything else. Bluestreak might just be another Golden Marlin ( other that the name). Same results..QUICK..'coons made it all the way to 50' with the record being one laying with his head in the pie pan. Inside the deer pen I have a small animal trap (cage type). I keep this about 10' from a feed trough. I drilled a 1/8" hole near the top of a 10" pie pan then wired the pan to a far corner on the cage, and have the cage wired to a t-post to keep it from being turned over. I then used baling wire and wove all but 5" from the bottom of the door to restrict fawns sticking their heads inside. To mix the Bluestreak...or, if you wan't, Golden Marlin, I pour a 12 oz. can of grape soda through the top of the cage, into the pan. Then I add two heaping tablespoons to the grape soda. I keep a twig to stick through the top of the cage and mix it well. 'never lost a deer from doing it this way. Dogs and EHD ...'another story.

The Goldin Marlin probably won't help with ehd but it will solve the dog problem. They don't get far. I am with Robert, if they come around my pen I will have a nice soda for them when they get thirsty.

Go to Predatormasters.com and see who in your area calls and shoots coyotes. Lots of good helpful people there and they won't charge. Jim
