Are you having some problems with unwanted visits from wild animals who would often scavenge your garbage or trash creating such a big mess on your lawn aside from the possibility of entering your house for any possible source of food? Do you want to ease yourself with these nuisance and are on the verge of probably calling some pest control company to do the extraction but you are just not too sure whether it would be effective and if you can afford their services?

Possums, raccoons, squirrels and rats are among the common household pests that always provide such a problem within the household because they often take refuge and build their own living space in the attic or some parts of your house. Although foxes are not always fond of getting inside your household to actually hold residence in it and they are often presented as cunning animals with different representations or symbolism to some native tribes in movies which gives them a little more popularity and charisma.

Despite of these they sometimes cause unnecessary problems within your property such as trashing up your garbage to hunt for food, scaring some of your livestock such as hens and ducks and even trying to have a tasty meal of your favorite caged birds. Not only that, they also create such an annoying sound when they are in a lookout for their mates. There are even rumors about foxes attacking humans in some parts of the country although these cases are not always proven or if they are, the incidents are too rare.

Because of these, humans tend to be more careful in dealing with this unwanted stranger in their properties. Some try to fend them off by purchasing some gadgets which produce ultrasonic sounds to deter them from entering the perimeter of your locale. There also some non-toxic chemicals which emit such a foul odor or scent that marks your territory thus getting rid of them. There are also some people who sometimes shoot at them but it is really not recommended because it might be illegal to harm them and there are just too many animal rights activists that might give you a headache with legal problems when it comes to this.

Normally, the best way to deal with foxes is just to use nonviolent ways to scare them off. As we have said, you can use ultrasonic fox repellent that emits high frequency sounds (human hearing have limitations to sound frequency so we might not hear this). It has censors which respond to any motion within its range which is said to be about 10 meters. It covers a large area meaning that you will be free from any distraction from possible entrance of these cunning foxes. But one little problem that you might encounter is the same effect that might be experienced by your cats and dogs if you have them near it.

One of the most widely used fox repellent in the market are those products which simply gives off an odor or scent that drives away these animals in the belief this is already a marked territory by another animal. This is also very easy to use because you only need a sprayer or something like a watering can to surround your area with the mixture. As it is water based it can be washed off in a month leaving you in need of another application although it is very reactive.

On the other hand, you can also create your own homemade fox repellent by simply looking into some herbal recipes that you can easily make. There are a few of these on the Internet so you can browse through them if you like. The normal process in creating such stuff is to heat up 6 cups of water first and let it reach near boiling point. You can then chop up several herbs like basil, geranium leaves, garlic or this can be substituted with onions and sage to fill in one cup each. You have to add this one by one in the almost boiling water and let it simmer for 30 minutes turning down the heat. You have to let it cool down and use a strainer to separate the liquid from the mush. You can still spread the mush in strategic locations on your property as well as spraying the liquid in the entire perimeter. The scent coming from this mixture is said to effectively ward off many animals including foxes.
