Blue Ridge Wildlife & Pest Management, LLC has provided fox removal, fox control, and fox pest control in Bristol, VA since 1998.
In human environments, foxes can adapt easily due to the abundance of food and shelter. Humans provide food sources, such as trash cans and pet food bowls that are replenished regularly. Urban landscapes provide a great food supply for foxes because they attract prey or other wildlife species that foxes are looking for. Once a fox has found this prevalent food source, it will look for a den site that is relatively close to that food source. Homes or the area around your home can become a den site due to increases in urbanization or land development in fox inhabited areas, and the steady increase in prey species in these areas does not help. The fox prefers a vacant woodchuck den as close to his prey or hunting grounds as possible. Old barns, low-lying decks, and storage sheds have been used for den sites as well. As long as we continue to urbanize and provide an abundance of food to the fox, they will continue to adapt to human environments and pose a threat to human health.
Early to late Spring you may see a fox during daylight hours. There is no reason to be concerned. This time of year foxes are feeding their pups and will hunt day and night to provide for the family. However, if the fox is showing unusual behavior, you should contact Blue Ridge Wildlife & Pest Management, LLC.
Blue Ridge Wildlife & Pest Management, LLC will set the most humane traps available for the situation. Local laws vary from town to town. Humane padded foot hold traps or humane foot snare traps are the preferred traps, but not all localities will allow their use in urban environments. Professional grade single door humane live cage traps can be used in urban environments, but do not solve the problem fast. Like cage traps, padded foot hold traps and foot snares do not harm the fox and allow us to remove non-target animals without harming them as well.
