Consider the "Three R's" to prevent loss due to pond predators
Provide a safe RETREAT for koi. Predators cannot eat your fish if they cannot catch or find them! Use an underwater shelter placed on the bottom of the pond to create a secure haven from predators. Also, make sure your pond has plenty of floating vegetation and structures for your fish to hide under.
REPEL unwanted animals away with ultrasonic devices, sprays and chemical repellents, and decoys. Spray repellents use smell and taste to ward off unwanted visitors like deer, squirrels, and raccoons. For best results, they should be applied frequently, especially after rain. Herons are big threats to pond inhabitants. Since Herons are territorial, the use of a heron decoy will make it appear that your pond has already been claimed. Owl decoys may help deter other predators who wouldn't risk being attacked by another natural predator. For the best results, the decoys should be moved often so the predators don't catch on!
RELOCATE predators with traps. Use traps designed to humanely capture and hold pond predators. Safely capture and relocate nuisance animals to protect prized koi. Provide an alternative food source away from the pond to draw predators away from your koi.
