Different kinds of fox repellent
Foxes are the type of pest that can be actually dangerous to small pets. If you live in an area where foxes live and you have small pets you should know the ways to keep these small but dangerous animals away from your house. The job may not be easy because foxes are some of the most versatile wildlife and will be able to get past some of the things that humans come up with to keep them out of the area. They can sometimes go through fences if they are not tall enough or if they dig under it. The fact is that if a fox sees an easy meal it will try a lot of things to get to that meal. In order to keep such resourceful animals away from your house and your pets you will need to know a few things that work against them.

Ultrasonic Repellents
Here is a solution that has a good side and a really bad side. The ultrasonic repelling system works up to a certain point. The system produces a sound that foxes do not like, and with some luck that will be the end of your fox problem. The bad news is that if you have a dog or any dogs close by, the ultrasonic device will affect them as well, so it is not recommended for people with dogs. They are also not one hundred percent effective, because if a fox sees a meal close by, it may put up with the annoyance of a sonic device in order to get to the meal. The effectiveness of the device depends on the persistence of the fox. The sonic device works a lot better when it is a part of a two-step solution. The first step in the equation has to be the right fence.

A Fence
Though a fence can be breached by a fox if not properly equipped to handle one, you can do a few things to make your fence as good as they get to keep the foxes out. First you have to make sure that the fox cannot dig under the fence and that is accomplished in two ways. First you can make a cement base on your fence. That will usually discourage a fox from trying to dig. The second thing you can do is to purchase and underground fence. The fences work in that they will stop a fox that is already digging from getting to the other side. The fence should be tall enough and they work better with a top that is inclined outwards. Barb wire will also do the trick. A well placed fence will usually discourage a fox and they will not even try to come back in the future.

Spray Repellents
There isn’t any known spray repellent specifically tailored as a fox repellent. However there are many different scents of animals that may be sprayed around an area to deter foxes. Using coyote or bear scent has been reported to keep them away. The trouble is that it often attracts the coyote or bear.

A Big Dog
Foxes can be dangerous to small dogs, but they will stay away from the bigger breeds. If you raise poultry this may be the most effective way of keeping the foxes at bay. You do have to make sure that your dog is trained to keep wildlife away, while at the same time to never harm any livestock that you may be keeping. The great thing about the dog solution is that a good dog will not only keep foxes out, but they will also work with other wildlife that may be around your farm. If none of these solutions have proven to work you can always have a wildlife manager come to your property and try to get rid of the fox for you. That is probably the safest and most secure way to get rid of foxes because experts have techniques that are fast and humane.
