Foxes

Pest Control

On-going suburban development means that more and more foxes are born and raised in built up areas. Foxes dens, called earths, have one entrance and one exit (bolt hole), and tend to be found under garden sheds, in dense undergrowth, or in banks of earth.

Foxes mark their territory by fouling or urinating, although they only shed a few drops of urine at a time. They tunnel under sheds or among shrubs, producing large piles of earth or sand, and may make an earth under a house if they can gain access via an airbrick or any other means.

They may also (mainly in Autumn) dig shallow holes in the lawn when hunting for earthworms or grubs.
