Foxes have become a significant pest in urban areas in recent years, feeding on discarded take-away food and foraging in bins. Generally they are nocturnal animals, but they can increasingly be seen in daytime, depending upon the availability of food.

Their presence can be quite alarming, especially where a full is present and their digging can cause significant damage in gardens in particular. Discarded food remains around the den can be very unsightly, and can attract other pests.

They are also very smelly and can cause significant problems where they gain entry to sub-floor areas because of damaged or missing air vents and bricks.

Control measures include live-trapping, snaring and shooting. Long term control often requires environmental management though the installation of fox-proof fencing or similar. AllPest Services endeavours to use non-lethal control methods such as exclusion wherever practicable.

All work is carried out in accordance with the COSHH regulations (2006) and best practice.

All staff are qualified to RSPH Level II standard and are BPCA Registered, as part of which they undertake regular training and assessment. This ensures that our customers benefit from the best skill, expertise and problem-solving possible.

Answer

In most cases urban foxes do not cause us any specific problems although some people may find their presence distressing, especially if they have young children or pets. They will often raid bins and spread waste as a result. Many foxes do carry fleas and their dens have a strong and distinctive foul odour. Foxes continually scent mark their territory – if they gain access to your solum this can prove very unpleasant! They may also need controlling for reasons such as to prevent damage to cage animals and livestock or due to damaging lawns and golf courses.

Answer

Under normal circumstances foxes are very wary animals and are unlikely to approach people. In urban situations where they have become accustomed to living in close proximity to man they can appear less shy. Nevertheless it is very unusual for a fox to approach a human. Incidents of injury to people are almost always due to incapacity of the person involved.

Answer

Fox control is often a very sensitive issue and needs to be handled with care. Urban fox control is a particularly tricky issue – many of the most effective methods of control (shooting and snaring) are simply not practicable in an urban setting. In many cases the best approach is environmental management rather than control (thinning out vegetation or erecting fox – proof fencing or electric fencing. Fox-proofing of shed bases and basements can also be carried out). Where control has to be carried out live trapping is often the only viable option although it can be time-consuming and the results may be relatively short-lived.
