Foxes have become an increasing problem in the UK as recent news reports have shown and the methods to control these vermin have evolved considerably. Once only to be seen in the country, foxes are now well adapted to living in an urban environment. Rurally, the fox remains a pest to the farmer but in the towns has become a pest of the gardener and householder.
Hunting for rabbits has been substituted for scavenging in bin bags, and foxes will quite happily dig up your garden in search for earthworms and grubs. Although not a direct threat to you or your pets, foxes often carry fleas and can easily pass on diseases such as distemper, mange and scabies.
There are many different solutions for fox control which include humane trapping, deterrence systems and proofing.
