Dependant upon your needs or the local circumstances we can offer two Guaranteed types of fox control; both are DEFRA approved and are within the 1971 Wildlife Act.
Live trapping. This involves placing a suitable cage trap baited with food. It has a spring loaded door which shuts behind the fox once it is safely inside causing no harm to the fox. Foxes can become trap or cage wary – refusing to enter them, something that is becoming an ever increasing problem as more pest controllers release captured foxes locally to the site of capture.
Dispatchment of a fox. Our marksmen use specially licensed small gauge rifles fitted with silencers and Night vision scope . This allows them to humanely and quietly deal with your fox.
You may have read about 'deterring' on the internet, however there are not many ways to deter foxes. High pitched garden alarms they do not work, they only make a hole in your pocket. Spreading lion dung or other smelly items around the garden – this does not work either as once a fox has decided or adopted a path he will stick to it even if you own a large/small dog.
The releasing of trapped foxes into a new area comes under the animal welfare act 2006. We are fully conversant with this legislation and will deal with the fox as dictated by this act.

All I will ask from you is that you keep a diary of the times the foxes visit your garden and a note of the activities they undertake. (this is my working number, if I am waiting for a fox I may have the phone set to silent and not be able to take your call – but I will get back to you)
