Danger Of Fox Infestation

European red foxes are the common fox species found in Australia. They can adapt themselves to urban environments, inner-city, and deserts areas easily and comfortably.

These foxes take rest during the day and become active at night.

These types of foxes, if not removed timely from your surroundings, may create the following problems:

  • They are the aggressive pest species that create ecological imbalances, causing a threat to the survival of many marsupial species in Australia.
  • They attack domesticated animals like poultry and sheep and impact the agricultural and poultry industries.
  • They cause damage to irrigation systems and horticultural crops.
  • They pose serious threats to ground-nesting birds, turtles, and more.
  • Though foxes do not attack humans, the studies show that they are responsible for spreading Australian Bat Lyssavirus (ABLV) to both animals and humans.

Signs Of Fox Infestation

Most of the foxes are active at night, and you may not see them directly during the daytime. Hence, it is difficult to know about fox infestation. If you notice any of the following signs, you can contact us for immediate inspection and fox removal service:
  • Traces of paw prints in your garden and backyard. You can inspect your surrounding for the paw prints for a few days to confirm the presence of this uninvited guest.
  • If you notice the missing of plant vegetables and fruits in your backyard, it could be due to the pest animal.
  • Fox digs a hole in the ground. The presence of unexplained holes in your garden or backyard can confirm fox invasion.
  • If any of your pets or livestock is missing, it may confirm fox invasion because the foxes attack small pets and livestock even when they have plenty of other food sources to feed.
  • If you see dispersed garbage from the cans, you can doubt their presence because they search their food in the garbage.

How do you deal with fox pests?

Foxes are not dangerous but can transmit disease to pets and their family. Foxes can also pose a threat to farmers, especially poultry farms. Foxes can also inflict injury or death on small and large pets and animals.

Let’s say that none of these options work. In such cases, professional fox controller specialists might be necessary.

The most popular methods for managing foxes are trapping, shooting trapping, wild trapping, and lethal baiting. However, these methods are not tested extensively in Australia, as we have already mentioned.

How important is Fox Control?

According to the Biosecurity and Agricultural Management Act 2007, Western Australia (the Act), foxes are considered a pest. Therefore, they must be controlled in all parts of the state to reduce their negative effects.

Victoria is home to many red foxes. Multiple control methods are better. You must consider the entire community and not just individual properties.

Fox trapping companies have many options for helping you get rid of your dog. Fox trapping is what we are experts in. State or territorial legislation must guarantee respect for the animal.

How can I tell if Fox is causing my problems?

To calculate their size, it is necessary to prove that foxes caused the loss. It is forbidden to keep feral and wild dogs away.

You will unlikely be able to witness foxes hunting at night. Therefore, it is better to search for other signs of involvement. Also, you could look for paw prints to see if the Fox is involved. It is easy to distinguish between the paw pads of predators and dogs.

It is crucial to examine corpses to determine the cause of death.

What is the Fox Trapping Service?

You can catch foxes in urban and semi-rural locations, where poison baiting may not be appropriate. Trapping is an excellent way to manage obtrusive wildlife. However, it is not recommended that you use it for the general management of foxes.

Cage traps are more effective in urban and residential areas than leg-hold traps. With a minimal injury, non-target animals can be released. In addition, you can transfer foxes to another area for their extermination.

Tom’s Pest Control Gold Coast offers fox control services to residential and commercial properties. This four-step process will reduce the chances of foxes invading your property.

What attracts foxes to my property?

Yard waste, bird seeds, and pet food are all favourites of foxes. Foxes also love to build dens under decks or patios.

Please avoid direct contact with foxes, as they are extremely suspicious of humans. Foxes can also transmit germs and parasites to humans. While some can be passed to pets, others can be transmitted via excrement. Echinococcus multilocularis is one example of a new disease that affects canid tap worms.

Fox removal specialists will inspect your property to find potential hiding places. We will also look for any prey foxes in your area.

What can I do to get foxes out of my yard?

Boil the garlic, chilli peppers, water, and salt. Spray the mixture around. Your garden is not permitted to contain foxes. This natural repellent will eliminate foxes in your yard.

An automatic water pistol can also be installed. These tools can be used to keep foxes out of your yard. These systems need extremely high water pressure to be connected to the hosepipe. A battery can power the motion sensor.
