Some Facts About Fox Pest Control
Foxes can cause problems for people. Their habit of marking territories is met with distaste by some human neighbours.
These animals are now a regular occurrence in most cities and towns in the UK and for people who keep small pets such as rabbits or poultry they can be a real concern.
As humans expand their living areas into the countryside, so foxes expands their territory into cities and towns. They know that humans are a good source of food, and because they are natural scavengers, have taken the opportunity to live closer to us.
For this reason it is not advisable to put out food for them to eat, though some people still do. In our towns and cities, discarded fish suppers and inadequate rubbish disposal provide them with more than enough to eat. This is not a creature in danger of starvation.

Feeding these animals may cause them to venture closer to human habitations and enter properties through cat-flaps or open garden doors. However, it is recognised that they are naturally timid creatures and try to avoid both adults and children.
Foxes may carry toxocara canis, which is a parasitic roundworm that can be passed to humans, but this is a rare occurrence and all previous infections have been transmitted by dogs.
It infects only 2 in 1 million people. Similarly, there is no evidence of rabies in the fox population of the British Isles.
If you have noticed holes appearing in your flower beds or lawns, then foxes may be accountable. They like to forage for worms and insect larvae, but they also like to dig dens in which to raise their litter.
