Fairfax County wildlife control tip of the month: Fox Removal
- The most common fox in North America is the red fox and it is known to cause most of the predation problems that necessitate fox removal. However, the grey fox is known to cause problems in some areas. The other fox species known to cause minor damage since they typically feed on small rodents and live in remote habitats are the kit fox, swift fox and Arctic fox. The appearance of the red fox is similar to that of a dog but its muzzle is elongated and pointed and it has large pointed ears, which are usually erect and forward. Its legs are moderately long and it has soft, thick body fur and heavily furred and bushy tail. Problems they cause
- Foxes are opportunists and they usually feed on rabbits, bird eggs, mice, native fruits and insects. They usually kill animals that are smaller than rabbits even though they sometimes kill animals such as pigs, fawns, poultry and lambs. Typically, they stalk their prey patiently and then pounce on it suddenly. At times, they kill more animals than they can eat and bury the carcasses in caches where they eat them later. One of the major problems they cause that calls for fox removal is serious damage in poultry farms such as those who raise turkeys, geese, ducks and chickens in large pens. They also kill young lambs, pigs and small pets. It can be difficult to detect the damage caused by foxes since they usually carry the prey from the kill site to a den site and bury the parts that they do not eat. Foxes are not strong enough to hold adult animals and they usually prefer eating the viscera. They usually start feeding on adult livestock through an entry point behind the ribs. The other problems they cause are preying on waterfowl, pheasants and other game birds. Predation by foxes can be a major mortality factor for wetland or upland birds including those that are an endangered species. Due to the problems they cause, it is essential to use effective fox removal methods to prevent damage to livestock. How to Keep away foxes
- Fencing - This is one of the effective fox removal methods. You can use net wire fences that have openings of three inches or less to keep the foxes away. The bottom part of the fence should be buried one to two feet with a net wire apron that extends to at least twelve inches outward from the bottom. It is also advisable to construct a roof or top of net wire in order to exclude all fox species since some can climb fences. You can achieve effective fox removal by constructing fences that incorporate electric and net wires.
Frightening - Frightening devices such as timed tape recordings, propane exploders, radios or amplifiers can be effective for temporary fox removal. The other devices that you can use to frighten foxes away are rotating beacon or strobe lights in small areas or in enclosures or poultry or livestock. It is advisable to use the frightening devices at irregular intervals for efficient fox removal instead of using one device. You can also frighten foxes away by getting properly trained dog breeds such as the Akbash and Great Pyrenes.
Toxicants - These are effective fox removal devices and one example of such a toxicant is M-44, which is a device that ejects sodium cyanide mechanically. When using M-44, you need to set it along crossings and trails that foxes regularly use. Fumigants - These fox removal products are effective for keeping away foxes by fumigating their dens to kill them. Before using these products, you should consult local and state regulations.
Trapping - This is another effective fox removal method even though it is essential to have adequate experience in order to trap foxes efficiently. The following trapping tips can help you trap foxes successfully. One is that the traps suitable for catching foxes are the numbers one and a half, one and three quarters and two double coilspring traps in addition to the numbers two and three double longspring traps. The traps that have padded and offset jaws cause limited injury to confined animals and simplify the release of non-targeted animals. Provincial and state wildlife agencies regulate the sets and traps that you can use for fox removal and it is therefore important to contact your local agency personnel to learn about the restrictions pertaining to your area. The other important trapping tips that you should know about is that the most productive sets are those made along trails, near carcasses and at entrances to fields. It is also advisable to utilize many different sets.
Shooting - The other effective fox removal method is shooting, which is known to reduce the population of foxes in the areas where they are causing damage. If you have predation problems during the winter and late fall, you can find private fur trappers who may be willing to hunt foxes.
Den hunting - It is possible to reduce fox damage by performing fox removal in fox dens to get rid of young foxes. You can locate such dens by looking for signs of fox activity during the early morning or late evening hours. Signs of fox activity include remnants of food such as bits of feathers, bones and hair and matted vegetation. Den sites that are used frequently have a certain odor. Fox removal of young foxes can be accomplished by trapping them or fumigating the dens they live in using gas cartridges.
