The gray fox (Urocyon cinereoargenteus) is a predatory species of canine weighing in at about 5-14 lbs and reaching lengths of 21-29 inches. Foxes mate in February-March. After a 53 day gestation period, 4-5 kits will be born in April-May. Foxes, like raccoons and opossums, are omnivores and will eat just about anything. Their diets mainly consist of larger insects, snakes, small rodents, pet food, and garbage. Foxes can live 6-8 years in the wild.
Foxes are opportunistic dwellers and feeders. Foxes are rarely observed in groups and primarily hunt in pairs. Foxes can dig their own burrows but prefer to live in the burrows of other animals. Foxes are very dangerous and you should never feed a fox or try to pet a fox. If you find a fox on your property, call Animal Remover right away for fox removal services.
Since foxes are opportunistic scavengers, they can come into conflict with people very often. Chickens in a chicken house are a much easier target than some other animals that foxes have to hunt for. Foxes will eat garbage, mice, rats, rabbits, birds, insects, eggs, fruits, and acorns. Foxes are a huge threat to domesticated animals as well. Foxes can spread fleas, ticks, and many other parasites, therefore, they are very dangerous to domesticated animals and your family members. Request fox removal from Animal Remover immediately.
Foxes, like most canines, carry rabies. Canine distemper is also a huge risk to fox kits that are three to six months old. Foxes carry a large amount of parasites, thus are vectors for the diseases that fleas, ticks, etc. can transmit.
The only proven method for fox removal is through trapping, habitat modification, and exclusion. Foxes will not respond to repellents, strobe lights, music, mothballs, or ammonia. The best way to remove foxes is by using live traps, snares, or paw holds. There are no repellants available on the market that will deter foxes from living on a property. Call Animal Remover today and make an appointment so that we can help remove the fox that is living on your property.
