Fox Removal

Foxes are a common sight in South Carolina, and it would not be that big of a surprise to find one in or near your home. However, it can be a little unsettling for those with gardens, small children and small pets. We want to keep our homes safe for our friends and family, but a fox can be frightening to many making our sense of security and safety nonexistent.

s is when we ask ourselves what can we do to remove this nuisance. The best option, as usual, would be to call in the experts and never get too close to any wild animal. You never know how they will react to your presence, so you should always try to keep a safe distance.

Fox facts

Foxes are predatorial and will act as a predator. This means to keep yourself, your family, pets and any livestock a good distance away from the fox. They are a scavenger of sorts and will eat whatever is easily available for the most part. They have been known to attack smaller pets and livestock such as chickens, dig up gardens and eat unsecured garbage and pet food.

They love to burrow under decks, porches, sheds and even your crawl spaces, so you should always find a way to successfully block these structures from being entered by the fox. If they do find a way in, you will more than likely find an entire pack of foxes living in or near your house because these are the perfect spot for mother foxes to create a den. So, just as with any type of wild animal, the best prevention is to make your home and property as inhospitable as possible to ensure that you will remain fox free.

How to rid yourself of a fox

If you are unfortunate enough to see a fox or evidence that you may have a fox on your property, you should probably call your local wildlife removal agency. They can inspect your property and let you know for sure of there is a fox near. They can then trap and relocate the fox for you, as you never want to approach a wild animal on your own.

The professionals know how to safely and effectively rid your home and property of foxes. They also know if there are any laws they need to follow when trapping and removing this animal. You may think that it would be simpler to spray some type of repellent or scare the fox away on your own. The problem with this is that there is no known fox repellent on the market, and once you scare the fox away, it may still come back, especially if there is easy access to food, water and shelter.

If you call in the professionals, they can give you some tips on how to properly eliminate this easy access to food, water and shelter. They can show you where you may need to secure food and water sources and point out any entry ways that need to be blocked. In the long run, it will pay off to call in help from people that truly know how to permanently rid yourself of the fox.

It can be frightening for those of us with families, crops and livestock seeing a predator so close to our homes and livelihood. They count on us to keep them safe, and we may not necessarily know how to combat this type of invasion. However, there is no need to worry you can always seek assistance from your local wildlife removal services and once again, feel safe and secure in your own home.
