Red Fox on a lawn - Fox Removal

Why Control Foxes?

Foxes are known for their cunning nature and adaptability, making them fascinating yet problematic when they invade residential areas. They can cause various issues, from structural damage to threats to your pets. It’s important to manage fox presence with professional fox removal to protect your property and maintain a balanced ecosystem.

1. Health and Safety Concerns

Foxes can be carriers of diseases and parasites, such as rabies, which pose serious health risks. Timely removal of foxes helps ensure the well-being of your family.

2. Preventing Property Damage

Foxes tend to dig and create burrows, which can lead to damage under porches, sheds, and foundations. Prompt action, such as fox den removal, helps avoid costly repairs and preserves your property’s structural integrity.

3. Protecting Pets and Livestock

Small pets and backyard chickens can fall prey to foxes. Removing these predators is crucial for the safety of your animals and peace of mind.

Foxes are skilled at staying hidden, but there are clear signs that can reveal their presence. Recognizing these indicators is crucial for effective pest fox control. Keep an eye out for these signs:

1. Distinctive Behaviors

Spotting foxes wandering around your yard at dawn or dusk or hearing rustling noises at night are primary indicators of their presence and activity nearby.

2. Signs of Damage

Check for burrows under decks, sheds, or along foundations. Fox dens can have a skunk-like odor and may cause structural damage if left unattended.

3. Tracks and Droppings

Fox tracks typically show four toes on the front paws and five on the back. You might also find droppings near dens or feeding areas. These signs can help you pinpoint where foxes are active and their regular paths.


  • Odor

  • Visible Den

  • Danger For Small Pets and Chickens
