FOX DETERRENT AND PROOFING SUGGESTIONS
Make your property fox unfriendly
Store rubbish in sealed bins.
Remove anything edible such as pet food, bird food, fallen fruit etc.
Remove heavy undergrowth.
Do not use plant food with animal products in them such as bone meal.
Vulnerable pets or poultry should never be left to free range unsupervised.
Children’s toys should be put away every night.
Use an enclosed composter as compost heaps contain grubs, worms and other wildlife foxes feed on.
Cover garden lighting cable and irrigation systems in metal conduit or plastic guttering.
Sheds should be sited in the centre of a solid concrete slab or paving slabs. This concrete base should be wider than, and overlap the shed in order to prevent foxes digging underneath. If the shed is to be placed in the corner of the garden it should be placed as close as possible to any fencing, eliminating any possible gaps which can be used as fox harbourages.
Decking. Paving slabs can be laid adjacent to decking to prevent foxes from digging underneath and setting up home. Two-inch galvanised steel mesh can be used to block any access points around the sides.
Bristle strips can be fixed to the top of fencing or walls to discourage foxes climbing over. Paving slabs or steel mesh can be laid/dug in, along the bottom of fences in order to deter digging under. Metal rods can also be driven into the ground in order to create an underground fence.
Steel mesh can be attached to metal railing type gates and fencing using cable ties to prevent foxes squeezing through gaps.
Scent deterrents can be effective. Two of which we have found helpful are “scoot” and “get off my garden cat and dog repellent”.
