If you think you have a fox problem, it is essential to ensure that it really is a fox that is the culprit. Cats, dogs, and squirrels are frequent scavengers of dustbins and plastic refuse sacks, and damage to lawns is often caused by birds. Some problems will solve themselves in the course of time. For example, a litter of fox cubs will disperse as summer progresses irrespective of any action taken. Trapping does solve the problem temporarily as other foxes from surrounding areas quickly move into the vacant territory and replace the animal that has been removed.

Foxes are rather nervous animals and generally fearful of people. They take every opportunity to avoid humans. It is inconceivable that a healthy fox would attack an adult or child unless cornered and an attempt was made to grab it. Foxes eat a variety of food including fruit, earth worms, insects, small mammals, such as mice, birds, rabbits, and scavenged food. Although there are cases of attacking cats this is extremely rare indeed. One problem that is prevalent in the months of June and July are young cubs that dig up areas of the lawn. Most are looking for leather jackets, grubs or lava. Alternatively, if you have placed a fish, blood or bone meal based fertilizer on your lawn the foxes will be attracted to this since its smells like buried food and thus encourages them to dig. Both foxes and cats are active at night and meetings between the two are probably a nightly occurrence. Observations of such meetings show that for the most part they either ignore each other or else the foxes are nervous of the cats. Foxes will attack pets such as rabbits or guinea pigs and also poultry. The best way of preventing this is to ensure that the livestock is housed in secure hutches and coops.

Foxes can carry a number of diseases such as mange, rabies and parasitic worms such as Trichinella and Toxocara. Whilst it is possible for man to contract these conditions it is not known whether foxes do actually pass them on to people or their pets and if they do, how serious a problem is it.
The size of the fox population in a town is held in natural balance by the foxes own system of spacing themselves in territories. On the other hand when a fox is diseased or injured, then there is a good argument for its humane destruction. Foxes can be persuaded to move from your garden although none of these suggested methods are guaranteed. If the fox is merely a visitor to your garden you should remove or protect whatever is attracting them; food from a bird table, domestic refuse, strawberry beds etc. Access routes should be blocked, but fencing off an entire garden is usually impracticable since the fence needs to be at least 2 metres (6ft tall) with no gaps in or under it.
