Fox Complaints
  • Noise
  • Damage to gardens
  • Damage/removal of toys and shoes
  • Damage to refuse bags & bins
  • Threat to livestock

The foxes diet is variable – whilst they are omnivores and eat chickens, rats, mice etc they also like berries, fruit, vegetable and grains. Foxes will, in fact, eat pretty much the same as a human being which is why they scavenge in dustbins.


Fox Complaints – Remove the attraction

This method can produce the greatest control over the fox population at little or no cost. Urban fox populations are far greater than those in rural areas, mainly due to the fact that a far greater amount of food is readily available. The most likely reason for a fox to enter your garden or premises is in the search for food, so removal of the food source will reduce the attractiveness of your premises to the fox.

Suggestions of action you can take:

  • Keep all domestic refuse in wheelie bins or closed containers, NOT plastic bags.
    Only put your refuse out on the morning of collection.
  • Protect all animals and livestock.
  • Do not leave food out for other animals, e.g. cats, dogs, rabbits etc.
  • Be extremely careful where you put food to feed birds, this should be in approved containers.
