Signs a Fox is on Your Property
Foxes are known for their intelligence and their fierce loyalty to their young. However, these creatures can pose a problem to your small household pets if they are left outside. If you have noticed the signs of a fox on your property, whether in the form of footprints or droppings, it is time to call the experts at Trutech to take care of it. Attempting to trap a fox on your own can be dangerous and you risk hurting yourself and the animal if you attempt to do so.
Dangers of Fox Infestation
Despite their dog-like appearance, foxes are dangerous and efficient predators. They have been known to hunt small livestock, including poultry, rabbits, and lambs. The pests may also attack pets that are left unattended. As humans continue to encroach upon areas foxes inhabit, the chances of seeing them increases. This in turn can lead to conflict.

Trapping & Removal
Fox control and Fox removal services give an important reminder that coyotes and foxes are wild animals and should not be fed. There are no effective repellents or deterrents available. The only fox control or coyote control measures are fox and coyote removal and relocation through trapping. Fox trapping and coyote trapping should only be attempted by the licensed and experienced Fox Control and Coyote Removal Specialists at Trutech. Anyone who attempts to confront or capture any wildlife puts themselves in grave danger.
Frequently Asked Questions
Foxes are known to carry numerous diseases and parasites. Some of these, like mange and canine distemper, mostly affect dogs. Others, such as rabies, can infect people. While healthy animals rarely attack homeowners, rabid foxes are dangerous to humans.
As scavengers, foxes invade yards primarily for easy access to food. Things like open garbage cans and pet food left out on porches make convenient meals for the pests. Foxes also venture onto private properties looking for shelter. The areas under decks and porches and the insides of sheds are ideal for denning.
Foxes in gardens typically enter in search of easily accessible food sources and places to den. The pests eat a variety of small animals commonly found in gardens, including rabbits, voles, moles, birds, mice, and rats.
Den sites may be in flowerbeds, the abandoned burrows of other animals, or located nearby in order to maintain easy access to prey found in gardens. Since foxes are skilled climbers and jumpers, fences and other such methods of exclusion are not very effective at keeping them away.
Property owners encounter numerous problems when foxes in gardens are present. The pests carry various diseases, like canine distemper, mange, and rabies, as well as disease-causing parasites such as mites, ticks, and fleas. A fox in the garden also will uproot certain plants and eat pet foods left unattended outside.
Foxes frequently nest in sheds, beneath decks and porches, and under houses, but rarely set up dens inside homes. However, they will sneak into houses through open doors and windows to forage for food or to escape severe weather.
The most serious damage caused by having a fox in the house is directly related to the pest’s habit of digging underneath foundations, as this undermines the structural integrity of buildings. Foxes also attack household pets if given the opportunity and are extremely protective of their dens, which can result in human injury.
Urine and excrement accumulate when fox infestations are present, which smells unpleasant and contributes to the spread of disease. Furthermore, the pests carry mites, fleas, ticks, and sometimes even transmit rabies.
