Foxes are scavengers and are attracted to the food that we leave out for birds and pets, they also scavenge food found on streets. Foxes have adapted well to living in urban environments and have lived alongside people in towns and cities for many years. During the day foxes shelter in their earths or dens. They seek shelter in gardens so if your garden is overgrown this provides a safe shelter for foxes. Under the Protection of Animals Act 1911 foxes can only be trapped by a professional pest controller. If you have a problem with foxes, 24 Hour Pest Control can advise on the appropriate treatment.
