UK URBAN FOXES focuses on providing a fox removal service
Although there are several methods of fox control available, they vary in degrees
of success. This “success” can be measured in terms of effectiveness, man hours,
cost and humaneness.
My preferred method is to cull on site as part of a pre determined plan tailored
to the client’s circumstances and wishes. This means pre baiting at a specific time
over a period of days and in a strategically and safe area
of the property.
This tried and tested method used over many years is guaranteed to get results and
is humane, selective, causes no stress for the fox, as it is instantaneous, discreet
and safe. I charge a fixed fee regardless of the number of foxes, over one or two
visits. I will explain in detail the whole process during the free survey and on
the day of the cull I will inform the local Police which generates a CAD number which
in turn provides you with a reference.
Live Catch Trapping
This method is a last resort as it is very costly both financially and in terms of
man hours. The traps have to be checked every 24 hours minimum and can in some case
take several weeks to capture a number of foxes, in addition and in the interest
of animal wellfair food and water must be supplied. This method is extremely stressful
for the captured fox and the end result is the same as captured foxes are not released.
Such as water jets, sonic devices or lion dung do not work at all; if they did I
would provide them as part of my service. Electric fencing is temporary and dangerous
to children. Improving the existing fence means it needs to be well over two metres
and not have any outbuildings or lower walls close and that includes the neighbours.
It needs to be sunk below ground to prevent digging under. The cost can run into
the thousands and lasts until weather damage and is unsightly.
• Culling foxes is the only method which reduces the local population of foxes.
• All carcasses will be removed from site.
• No livery is used on any vehicle used by us so discretion is assured.
The testimonials given here represent a cross section of my clients, ranging from
schools to domestic dwellings and apartments run by residents associations, all of
which had a fox problem.
These testimonials are all a result of my highly specialised and professional approach
to fox control in all situation and scenarios whether domestic, industrial or commercial.
