Urban foxes

There are a number of steps you can take to help prevent fox activity in your area. They include:

  • remove potential food sources
  • keep rubbish in bins - closed wheelie bins are fox proof
  • don't leave bagged rubbish outside
  • remove piles of garden clippings
  • fill gaps under garden sheds (a fox can squeeze under a 10cm or 4 inch gap and like to shelter under sheds)
  • only leave bird food in bird food dispensers
  • protect small pets like rabbits and guinea pigs in sturdy hutches (chicken wire isn't strong enough to keep foxes out, use strong welded mesh instead)
  • tidy up an overgrown garden
  • repair any damaged air bricks (don't block them up - houses need ventilation)

For further information you can contact The Fox Project who will be able to provide advice on fox deterrent.
