Early detection by professionally trained and experienced Dyno-Pest technicians plus a prompt, effective ongoing management regime is the effective way to treat pest foxes, whether they are an occasional or regular nuisance.
Call for qualified help at the first sighting of a fox on your premises or if you have evidence of a scavenging fox and are in need of fox control London.
The damage they can cause to your business:
Due to their adaptability and the availability of food, foxes are now more common in some London areas than in the surrounding countryside.
Urban foxes can be a problem generally during mating season when the screaming and barking of the vixens can be distressing and often disturbs sleep.
Foxes are also territorial and will scent mark their area with strong-smelling urine and faeces, especially if it is particularly important to them, such as near their “earth” (this is the burrow or den). In urban environments, foxes will often make their earth under sheds, in cellars, or in quiet overgrown areas of your garden.
While they usually leave cats and dogs alone, foxes may be tempted by smaller pets such as rabbits, guinea pigs, and chickens if they are not adequately protected. If the animals are kept outside, the easiest way to ensure their safety is to line the bottom of their cage or hutch with chicken wire that the foxes cannot penetrate.
Foxes in London do carry some diseases (including toxoplasmosis in their faeces) and worms, though they don’t carry rabies or suffer from distemper, despite commonly held beliefs – Britain has been free of rabies for many years. They are known to suffer from Weil’s disease and Mange (which is a skin disease caused by parasitic mites) that can transfer to pets.
Should foxes be a problem in your area, careful regard must be taken to all relevant laws and health and safety legislation, etc. Poisons are not a legal or acceptable fox pest control solution and can be very dangerous if misused.
While foxes are not a protected species as such, regulations surround the humane removal of these animals. At Dyno-Pest, our professional technicians are fully trained and aware of the relevant laws regarding fox removal and elimination of pests foxes.

The latest treatments for Foxes that are used by accredited Dyno-Pest technicians are cost-effective and safe, posing no threat to humans or animals. If it is necessary to cull a Fox, this will be carried out humanely by a qualified Dyno-Pest pest controller using approved and licensed techniques.
Because Foxes are reliant on their sense of smell, the dried deposits of the approved treatment emit a very unpleasant smell. Foxes associate this with the area and so move away. This aversion to the area persists even after the chemical has been washed away.
