Understanding fox behaviour and ecology is critical before designing your fox control plan. The following factors should be considered while developing your program:
- Foxes are highly mobile, able to travel up to 10 kilometers each night.
- The red fox is one of the most hardy animals on Earth.
- Foxes are extremely secretive and opportunistic.
- Foxes can rapidly reclaim regions after control measures have been taken.
- Foxes are prolific breeders.
Most common signs of foxes on your property
Foxes can inadvertently pass through a property without leaving any traces on many occasions, yet this only happens if a single fox has accidentally gone over it. If your property is frequently visited by foxes, there will be some traces left behind.
There are no distinct indicators that the animals are on your property, but we’ve put together a list of some fox-related signs that you might notice around your property
At first, you might not be sure what the droppings you see are because they are about the size of a medium-sized dog. But if you don’t have a dog or your dog isn’t the correct size and you’re unsure, here are some differences to help you tell them apart:
Fox droppings are usually stinky and may contain fur, feathers, bones, or seeds as a result of the fox’s diet, which is significantly different from that of your dog’s.
At night, the sound of a fox’s howl is one of the most aggravating indicators that they are there. Foxes can produce up to 28 distinct sounds. Despite their reputation for being quiet, when mating season arrives, it becomes impossible to tolerate their noises. When two foxes mating sounds – the males’ barking cry and the vixens’ scream – may be heard at once.
Furthermore, if the foxes give birth to their cubs near or beneath your home, you may expect to spend many nights listening to the cubs screaming and whickering at each other. If the foxes are afraid or are attacked, they may make various noises.
Trampled, destroyed plants or flower beds and fruit gardens can all be caused by foxes digging up the grass. Even if they don’t want to consume the veggies, if you’ve used fish or blood-based fertilizer, they’ll dig them up in search of flesh.
Foxes dig holes in your garden for a variety of reasons, including to look for worms or if they detect a buried creature – either a pet or a vermin. Another reason is that they create holes to conceal the food they have caught.
If there is a fox den on your property, you may not notice it for some time. This might explain the regular sightings of foxes in your garden, even if there’s a fox den on your property. Foxes, on the other hand, make their dens under wooden structures such as houses and sheds.
If you haven’t sighted a fox den near your property, you’ll most likely learn about it in when the cubs are old enough to go outside.
Fox prey remains
Unfortunately, this is also a clear indication of a fox’s presence in your garden. If the fox lives near or under a building on your property or catches its prey in your garden, you’re likely to see prey remains on a frequent basis.
Fox paw prints
These may not be seen all year, but you can see them in mud or sandy areas. It’ll be difficult to tell whether the paw prints were made by a fox or a dog. We’ve got a few distinctions for you. The sequence of the paws is one such difference; foxes’ footprints are in a straighter line than those of dogs. Foxes’ traces are also frequently narrower than those of dogs’. Of course, the trace pattern and paw print dimensions vary depending on the animal’s size and species, but these two factors are among the most significant.
What is fox trapping and why do you need it?
Fox trapping is the act of catching foxes with a range of different techniques and technologies. The most frequent type of trap used is a humane cage trap that aims to capture the animal without injuring it. After the fox has been caught, it may be eradicated or relocated to a better habitat.
Cage traps are most successful in towns and around homes where foxes are eating pet food or poultry, as well as on farms where landholders object to poisons and shootings. To create the appearance of entering a restricted area, cage traps should be significantly larger, measuring 1200 mm x 500 mm x 500 mm. The fox must be pinned down to avoid rolling over the trap and releasing the door and wire flooring should be covered with dirt. In order to identify the most appealing bait, it may be necessary to try various kinds of bait in a specific location. Chicken fast food or rabbit are two of the more popular baits for cage traps. Cage traps have the advantage of allowing pet and non-target animals to be released unharmed if caught in the trap. All traps should be well hidden and out of public view.
Foxes are a problem for a variety of reasons. Foxes may cause significant damage to your home and can also be dangerous to people and pets, as well as native species.

What can I do to prevent foxes around my property?
- Contact Council to report the location of fox dens.
- Food should not be left outside. Keep garbage bin lids shut when your pet has finished eating and remove all remaining food.
- Do not leave chicken food uncovered. This might entice rats, which will lead to the foxes coming into your yard.
- To minimize the attraction of insects, turn off the outdoor lights at night.
- At night, make sure that your chickens are enclosed in a safe chicken coop. Foxes are excellent climbers and diggers, so enclosures should either have a roof or fences at least two meters tall with an overhang of 30 centimeters. The floor may be protected with mesh or by burying the overhang into the ground and outward of the enclosure.
