Foxes have adapted well to life in towns over the last 50 years or so. They are now found across London and other cities in the UK. They prosper because they find plentiful food and shelter in our gardens, yards, and other open spaces.

the majority of complaints involving urban foxes include digging holes in garden lawns and flower beds, fouling in gardens, biting through garden light cables and irrigation pipes, fouling in school playgrounds and digging holes in sports fields.

Fox control

  • Keep your rubbish in bins until the day of collection wherever practicable. Make sure your bins have lids on. You may need to secure the lids with bungy straps. Use your food recycling container and keep the lid locked shut. Wash out any other recyclables before storage or putting out for collection.
  • Do not put out large amounts of bird food. Use special bird feeders rather than putting food on the floor.
  • Do not feed your dogs and cats out of doors
  • Call an expert for more complicated situations.
