Fox control in London
I have foxes in my garden! What can I do?
Foxes and fox control in London is the most contentious issue that Environ pest control has to deal with, no pest other than the rat generates as much public interest and there is strict legislation in place which determines how foxes are controlled in London. The nation is divided with regards to foxes and the debate goes on whether to exterminate or tolerate their presence in London. The culling of foxes is permitted by law and it is in fact illegal to live capture foxes and release them. If you have foxes in the garden or denning under the decking or shed there are a number of strategies that can be employed in the control of the fox.
Why control foxes in London?
As some of the photos on this page display sarcoptic mange is a significant disease that affects not only the fox but also pets (cats and dogs) and on occasion humans. It is a highly contagious disease and is caused by a parasitic mite. Alongside the very visible mange, foxes also carry lungworm which is fatal when transmitted in both cats and dogs. The lungworm is a parasitic nematode worm affects the respiratory system in dogs and cats. Canine heartworm can also be transmitted to dogs from foxes. Scabies and fleas are also common in areas where populations of foxes occur. There are also a number of disease which can be transmitted through contract with fox faeces the most serious of which is toxocariasis.

A Fox cull is carried out under strict control procedures by fully trainee and qualified marksmen. A full site survey of the grounds is undertaken prior to the shoot taking place so that we can be assured of a safe environment and efficient control. The local police constabulary are informed of the fox control shoot to comply with our on site assessment. Establishments most benefitting from the control include golf courses, schools, building sites, garden centres, parks and large gardens where denning activity occurs.
Trapping and foxes in London
Trapping foxes is a beneficial strategy particularly when we have foxes denning away from the control site and cannot get guaranteed results through a targeted shoot. Trapped foxes are humanely dispatched and are never relocated.
