Fox Removal in Austin and Central Texas

Foxes don’t just go for the hen house! They’ll eat whatever they can find, even if that means your pets. They like to build their dens and rear their young near places with easy prey. If you’re seeing signs of a fox, that might mean they’ve chosen to make your home a more dangerous place. Our AAAC Wildlife Removal pros are here to help you get rid of your wayward foxes, and make sure they stay away. Call us today!

Find a new hole that seems a bit big for a woodchuck? Noticed an odd, pungent smell in the garden? Maybe some scat here and there or trash strewn across the yard? In the winter, you might notice some small paw tracks in the snow going off in a straight line. It’s possible you have a fox hanging around.

Foxes are typically much more afraid of humans than we are of them. But the problem is that they might still be attracted near your home by an easy meal: trash, berries, pets or chickens.

Fox control and removal should be initiated as soon as the animal has been discovered living in the area. Call now for a quote!

Foxes and your Pets and Livestock

Foxes become a problem when they attack and/or kill livestock and pets. While foxes are not normally aggressive around human beings, if they come to associate a person with food, they may approach that person. As foxes prey on vulnerable creatures, they have also been known to attack small children. Just having a dead animal that has been eaten by a fox does not mean that a fox killed it; they are scavengers.

Foxes in your Neighbourhood

Trampled gardens, garbage strewn across the yard, chewed up toys and dead cats from a nightly visitor are bad enough. But they could also be setting up shop and building a family around your own home.

Foxes can often find their way into crawl spaces, underneath porches and patios and even into basements. They’ve also been known to find shelter under decks, sheds and outbuildings. Any structure that is elevated off the ground can serve as a perfect location for Foxes to raise a family. Fox pups are generally born in late spring.

Because of the fox’s wide range and diet, it has been known to carry a very large variety of diseases. They are vectors for diseases such as rabies, distemper and mange that are communicable to both humans and pets through their bite or even simple contact. Make sure that your pets are properly vaccinated to ensure both your and their wellbeing.

Fox Trapping and Removal

If you discover a fox on your property, contact an animal control specialist. In many cases, trapping and removing a fox is the necessary solution. At AAAC Wildlife Removal, we can guarantee that our professionals will not only thoroughly resolve the problems generated by fox occupation, but they will do so in a humane way that respects the life of the animal. Foxes can also produce noxious smells.

Deodorization and Deterrence

After foxes are removed, it is important to deodorize the affected area so that other Foxes will not be attracted to the Austin and Central Texas.

To exclude foxes from properties, homeowners may need to install electric fences or other deterrents, as the pests are known to scale, dig under, and go through gaps in traditional fencing. Additionally, closing off crawl spaces beneath porches, decks and sheds prevents foxes from building dens and rearing their young. Guard animals may also work as a fox deterrent.

As the fox’s range continues to expand, we can expect foxes to continue to intrude into densely populated areas. If you notice a fox on or near your property, contact AAAC Wildlife
