Foxes have steadily encroached on human territories in towns and cities as humans have moved into the countryside. Although naturally timid, foxes are scavengers and human habitats offer them a ready source of food. But their presence can be an unwelcome one for homes and businesses. Food debris can be scattered near to buildings and attract other pests. Foxes also pose a deadly risk to poultry and small domestic pets like rabbits, and homeowners should ensure all outside animal enclosures and hutches are completely fox proof.

Foxes also carry unpleasant parasites like roundworms and fleas. A sign that foxes are close to your home may be holes appearing in your flower bed as they like to forage for worms and dig dens.
