We can provide fox deterrent as well as fox trapping to help keep your garden or place of work fox free. The red fox has always been associated with the countryside and can often be found in woodland or other areas, usually staying out of sight. Foxes can cause problems by entering peoples gardens at night, especially if you keep chickens or other small animals that might attract them.

In recent years there has been a rise in activity of urban foxes that look for food that has been discarded by humans and raid bins. Foxes are nocturnal animals, they can be seen wandering around populated areas, even town centres scavenging for food that has been left around. Unfortunately there has also been a rise in the number of cases where foxes have entered properties and attacked pets, children and even adults causing considerable harm and injury.

FOX FACTS

  • COMMON SPECIES

    The Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes) is common throughout Hertfordshire and the rest of the UK. The average size of an adult fox is 14-20 inches high (at the shoulder) and 18-35 inches long with a tail that measures 13-21 inches.

  • DIET

    Foxes are scavengers with a varied diet and feed on small animals like mice, voles, squirrels etc. Foxes are also known to eat some plant material and perhaps even fruit as well as chickens from gardens or farms. In urban areas, the fox will eat just about anything it can get hold of taking advantage of all the scraps and spillages left over from humans.

  • HABITAT

    Outside of the breeding season, red foxes prefer to live in open, densely vegetated areas, though they may enter burrows to escape bad weather. Fox burrows are usually dug on hill slopes, steep banks of water bodies and ditches.

  • BEHAVIOUR

    The red fox will usually hunt in the early morning hours and late evening. They are extremely protective of their food and will defend their catch from even more dominant animals. The red fox has become well adapted to urban life and can scavenge successfully in the city eating anything that humans eat. These foxes can grow larger than those living in the countryside and have developed a unique set of survival skills to adapt to urban life.

  • ACTIVITY

    Foxes are usually most active in the early morning and late at night. In urban areas it’s more common to see them out at night when humans have left the area.
