How to Keep Foxes Away From
Foxes are very dangerous animals since they can
attack your pets and also kill poultry. There
are very many ways that you can use to keep
foxes out of your property. What are some of
Use of water jets
Water jets sprinkle a rain of water on anything
within their proximity. They should be installed
strategically to ensure that they water any
animal that comes near your property. You should
note that water jets can destroy some of your
properties like wooden structures and
electronics and so should be kept away from
these things. This limits the effectiveness of
water jets to gardens and farms or open fields.
Use of sound repellants
Sound repellants are an easy way to prevent
foxes from venturing into your garden. Just
ensure that the sound is not too loud to disturb
your family or your neighbors. In addition, you
cannot keep the sound running all day as you
risk irritating other people and this means that
you must invest in a machine that is activated
by motion. This means that the loud sound will
only be produced when a fox passes by.
Use of spikes
This is the oldest for defense against animals.
Just buy animal spikes from your local hardware
store and then install them. The spikes should
be sharp so that they can pierce the foxes and
dissuade them from trying to venture further
into your garden. You can buy positional spikes
to be placed on entry points only, or you can
buy a spiked fence. The spiked fence is
obviously more costly but offers more protection
Use of snap-traps
These are traps that snap at the slightest
touch. They can be a good weapon against foxes
since they injure any fox that touches them.
They are placed on the ground and concealed from
sight. The traps should be appropriately used to
avoid harming of pets and other people. You
should also remember that some of these traps
can kill an animal and this makes them dangerous
since they can injure you if you mishandle them.
Use of ultrasonic equipment
This equipment produces a special kind of noise
that can only be heard by the target animals.
Humans cannot hear the sound produced, but it is
very irritating to foxes and other animals.
These devices are motion activated and have a
battery of their own that can last for half a
year. The devices are safe and easy to install.
However, they may be costly and can be destroyed
by hash weather conditions like heavy rains. Go
