Keep your family and home
safe from the 5 'D- word' problems caused by
Every year foxes commit untold damage to thousands
of homes and gardens not only by fouling and
digging up bulbs and vegetables but by building
their earths in and around sheds, cellars, decking,
drains and houses or even drains or lofts. Given
an open window or doorway they will brazenly
steal not just food but any item that takes
their eye including clothes and children's toys.
Foxes are natural born killers - even when
they are not hungry they will instinctively
kill any small domestic pet or wildlife including
rabbits, guinea pigs, small birds, ducks,
chickens and fish as a matter of course. A
stoutly built cage is no guarantee of defence
against a determined fox.
As they forage for food foxes will destroy
many man- built structures including wood,
metal wire, etc and, of course, rip dustbin
liners to shreds leaving an unsightly trail
of rotting rubbish.
Foxes carry and spread many diseases harmful
to man and other animals including Weils disease
(leading to possible organ damage/ failure);
Toxacarisis (causing blindness in children)
and Sarcoptic Mange which is easily transmitted
to domestic dogs causing skin irritation, loss
of fur, possible death and expensive vets bills.
Foxes also continually mark their territory
with scent, urine and faeces presenting a considerable
health risk to adults and children alike.
As many people know foxes nocturnal activities
can be just as intrusive and the penetrating
screams of foxes mating or fighting has ruined
many a good nights sleep.
