How to stop foxes coming into your garden

If you have ever come across a fox in your garden, particularly if you have children with you, it can be a very frightening experience.

Foxes are just not scared of people anymore.  More foxes are living in urban areas looking for food.  Unfortunately they have become more accustomed to seeing humans so we are no longer seen as a threat.

Foxes are not normally a risk to children, however there have been some incidents in the media that may suggest otherwise.

It goes without saying that family pets including rabbits, chickens and guinea pigs are at risk from these predators.  There is a humane and effective way of getting rid of them from your garden for good.

Always be vigilant around foxes where your children are concerned.

We had a serious fox issue that went on for months in the Summer of 2012.  The smell coming from the garden from the fox faeces and urine was terrible.  We tried leaving lion manure around the garden, we used a fox repellent spray and even tried installing an electric fox scarer device that made absolutely no difference.

Then we came across this humane deterrent.  This is THE ONLY method that worked and has continued to work since we bought it in 2012.

How it works

The device connects to your garden hose and is battery powered.

It fires a short 5 second burst of water when its sensor is triggered.  After a short period of time, the animal stays away so you will not need to turn it on.

It protects your home, pets, flowers, trees and it waters your lawn in the Summer whilst you are at work too!

It is highly sensitive so if a family pet and/or family member wanders onto your lawn, they will get a soaking too!

Put an end to pick up fox poo

In any event, if you want to put an end to picking up fox/cat poo when you don’t have a pet yourself, this is the one!  We cannot highly recommend it enough.
