How the fox control works

Survey

A fox exterminator will visit your property to take a look at the situation. He will thoroughly check for any signs, entry points and damage the fox has caused.

Treatment

For the spraying treatment, we use a product that acts like another fox's pheromones which they use for marking territory which in turn repels the intruder. When trapping, cages with baits are placed in locations where a fox has been spotted.

Observation

Our fox control service includes one visit only but you are encouraged to keep a close eye and contact us if the problem persists.

Prevention

The fox exterminator will provide you with useful tips and tricks on how to prevent future fox disturbance. Also, he will write a report describing the entire service.

Why you should get rid of foxes

Foxes are common intruders in the UK. While they aren't dangerous to humans and pets, though there are rare cases where they’ve attacked people. Additionally, foxes can cause many problems, such as:

  • Cause Damage: foxes expanded their territory to cities where they have more food sources. As they are scavengers, foxes will most commonly search for food in rubbish disposals. This means they scatter garbage all over the streets.
  • Hunt: other preferable foods to foxes are small animals such as rodents or frogs. They’re also a worry for farmers and pet owners, as they feed on poultry, birds and rabbits.
  • Carry disease: foxes can carry rabies and a bite can cause serious infection. Not only that but, you can also be exposed to bacteria from their faeces. Foxes usually enter gardens and this way you or your pet can be affected.

Fox Control FAQ

Q: Can I kill foxes on my property?

A: Since foxes are a non-protected species, shooting them is legal as long as you have your landowner's permission and the proper firearm license. However, some methods of killing, such as poisoning, are illegal.

Q: How to get rid of foxes without killing them?

A: Deterring foxes can be done by masking their scent with something they dislike. Mix the chilli pepper and garlic in water, and boil it. Blend the mixture, then spray it in any part of the garden.

Q: Do lights keep foxes away?

A: Foxes are nocturnal animals, so lighting up the environment will help keep them away. Motion sensor lights make a great first step in deterring foxes from your property.

Q: How much does it cost to remove foxes?

A: It depends on the method you decide to use, but fox removal can cost anywhere from £100 to £300. Detering foxes with spraying start from £120.

Q: Can pest control get rid of foxes?

A: In some cases, pest control companies kill foxes. The cost of killing and disposing of an animal on your property is your responsibility. Foxes can also be controlled by spraying. Residual odours are like another fox marking their territory, which acts as a repellent.

Q: Will council remove foxes?

A: A local council is legally obligated to control pests such as rats and mice, but not urban foxes. It is not the Council's responsibility to eradicate foxes on private or other lands since they are classified as wild animals, not pests.
