Fox Control in Dorset

Pest Control Bournemouth
Pest Overview

Fox control is a very divisive subject with one household loving and feeding them and the neighbour not wishing to have its pet rabbit, guinea pig or chickens as its supper.

Whatever your feelings fox control is necessary. Some urban cities have little activity where others can have as many as 3 breeding pairs per square kilometre.

Most people are aware of the high fox density in January and February when the vixen comes into heat and the screaming and barking scare all the young children at night. Litters are born in March/April with an average litter size of 4 to 5 cubs.

Facts about the pest

The Fox – Vulpes vulpes

Facts about Foxes

Foxes although members of the dog family have relatively short lives in the wild of around 2 years. Foxes although beautiful to look at are prolific carriers of disease, sarcoptic mange is unfortunately not only prevalent to the fox but also to our pet cats and dogs. This is a highly contagious disease and is caused by a parasitic mite. Mange which is a highly visible distressing disease to witness, foxes also carry lungworm a parasitic nematode which can be fatal when transmitted to pet cats and dogs.

Scabies and fleas are also a common pest hosted by foxes along with Toxocariasis which can be transmitted through contact with fox faeces.

It is illegal to lay poison baits for foxes. TP Pest Control services practices humane methods of controlling and proofing against all target species. Snares are in fact legal for the control of foxes but we do not use them. It is also considered under The Animal Welfare Legislation unlawful to release a fox after its capture into unfamiliar surroundings.

    Terry and his lovely dog Max provided an excellent service. The work was carried out professionally with comprehensive advise and Max was quick to find the rat entry points. In total we had three visits and proofing done on the property and we could not be happier. Highly recommend TP Pest Control. Thank you again Terry & Max.

  • Thanks to Terry I am now able to sleep at night!

    Terry was extremely friendly and very thorough. He located the problem and discovered I had both rats and mice.He fitted 11 covers over all the vents outside my bungalow, set traps and eradicated the problem in three visits. Thanks to Terry I am now able to sleep at night! I would thoroughly recommend TP Pest Services for any pest control.
