Foxes in Essex

The fox has been a countryside dweller for centuries, however in recent years they have been able to integrate into urban life. Essex, as a county with a wealth of expanses of countryside and bustling towns, is the perfect place for foxes to thrive. We’re seeing an increase in the number of people calling us looking for fox removal services – although foxes have been an enduring issue for many property owners in the area. Nonetheless, our fox control team are ready to deal with all of the cases that we take on!

What attracts foxes? Well, a little bit of everything! They are scavengers by nature, and when they dwelled exclusively in the countryside they previously attacked and ate farmers’ livestock, including chickens and rabbits in the rural areas. They are now enticed by life in the towns due to the endless supplies of waste food and shelter. Their diet is diverse, and they find easy pickings from the leftovers in residential bin bags and litter bins from fast food outlets.

Warning signs of foxes

They have become bold in their approach, and we often find them creating a habitat in residential gardens, notably beneath decking right outside the homeowner’s back door. We now hear of stories where the urban fox has entered property on the lookout for food to feed their young. The fox is a nocturnal animal and the mating call is very distinctive – many a homeowner has been kept awake at night by the eerie scream of a fox in the early hours. Needless to say, this disruption can cause a lot of upset, particularly in properties where young children and more vulnerable individuals are present. They can also pose a threat to small pets such as rabbits which are kept outside.

Humane fox pest control

We understand that the control of foxes can be a sensitive issue. The most humane method of control is by live trapping, which is probably the best solution in urban areas. Our fox control team can work quickly, trapping the animals that have been causing issues on your property and then carrying out a prompt disposal so that you don’t have to. Shooting is also possible, but only in rural areas. In addition, we can implement measures that will prevent foxes from entering or causing damage to your property in the future. So, with our help, you will be able to say goodbye to these unwelcome visitors for good.

I have had dealings with Paul over a number of years now (20 years +) principally dealing with field mice in our loft. Paul is highly professional and without hesitation will always part with helpful advice and recommendations before booking an appointment. You will not find better customer service. I am in no doubt that now Toby has joined the family business, Town & Country Pests will go from strength to strength.
