How do you know you are having a fox problem
Foxes can be hard to spot as they are timid and try to avoid people. Being mostly active at night, these canines often hunt during dawn and dusk. However, foxes can leave a trace behind, which can signal you that you are dealing with wildlife intruders and you need to contact a reliable fox control company.
Here is what fox infestation signs to look for on your property:
- Paw Prints: The paw prints of foxes are narrow, have a triangular shape with the toes close together and appear in a straight line.
- Holes in the ground: You may notice unexplained holes in your garden or backyard, as foxes tend to dig in the ground to look for earthworms and grubs.
- Injured or missing animals: Foxes are agile predators and will attack small animals, like pets or livestock, such as poultry, rabbits, lambs and goat kids.
- Damaged crops: Foxes also feed on fruit, some vegetables and crops, such as corn and barley. They can also damage your crops while digging for worms.
- Dispersed waste: Foxes can rummage through trash cans in their search for food.
If you notice any of the above-mentioned telltale signs on your property, don’t panic immediately, just contact us and we will handle the fox problem for you!

Q: What is attracting foxes to my property?
A: Foxes are attracted to food sources, such as waste, crops and small livestock animals, like poultry and rabbits. Moreover, some people leave food outside their homes to feed foxes, however, this makes the animals more accustomed to people and unafraid to come near residential premises.
Q: Is it illegal to kill a fox in Australia?
A: Foxes aren’t protected under the law in Australia and it’s legal to kill them, but only in a humane manner, either through shooting, den fumigation or lethal baiting. However, here it’s important to mention that shooting should be done only by people, who are properly licensed, and never in urban areas.
Q: Are foxes dangerous and do they attack people?
A: Foxes are timid and would only attack if it’s during their breeding season and they feel threatened.
