We specialise in fox
control and removal

The fox is a cunning predator and a nuisance to many livestock owners and city dwellers alike.

Information

(Vulpes Vulpes)

A gradual rise in numbers every year has led to them not only targeting chickens, lambs and smaller wildlife but also venturing into our towns and cities scavenging in bins and in some cases taking domestic pets.

Foxes can live in very close proximity with humans and, whilst rare, attacks on people have been known.

Foxes can also carry diseases, such as roundworm and mange, and it has been known for these diseases to transfer to pets, especially dogs.

  • Large animals resembling a small dog in appearance
  • Standing approx. 40cm high at the shoulder and measuring circa 110cm nose to tail
  • Reddish fir with a white tip to the tail

Habits

  • Urban foxes are very opportunistic and feed on a wide variety of foods
  • Primarily nocturnal though can be seen soaking up the last bit of sun and sunset
  • Voracious feeders on livestock often killing more than they consume
