WOW What a year for these critters!!!
Without any predators except a couple hawks at Metro and the abnormal weather patterns we believe their migratory patterns must have been altered. Therefore we have had more coots visiting us this year then I can remember. My colleagues at other courses inform me that we are not alone from this onslaught of coots Besides the enormous amount of clean-up we have added to our daily maintenance program we have increase our harassing and added some techniques hoping this will help encourage them move along with their migration . Besides our 2 dogs, we use lasers, noise makers, fencing, netting, and wires strung across our lake in numerous patterns and colors. None have been that effective so we keep to clean up there mess We will continue to be proactive with the situation, but hope there will move on SOON
THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE
