Foxes are scavengers who can come to your area and cause trouble. They like to get into garbage cans like raccoons and can cause damages to your home. They live throughout North America and though they usually make their homes in wooded areas, they can sneak into neighborhoods. Today we’re going to be talking about fox behavior and how to keep them out of your yard. Are you ready to learn more about foxes? Well, let’s get going!
Foxes are very clever.
Foxes, unlike dogs and wolves, are loners. They sometimes travel in pairs, but they mostly live and hunt alone. They only time they live in a pack is when they are very young. This is good for you because if you spot a fox, the worst that could happen is that it has only one friend. Now, foxes are primarily nocturnal, so they’re going to be active when you are tucked up in your bed. Fox pups are birthed underground in fox holes and they usually stay there until they are old enough to fend for themselves. As with any mammal, the mother fox is going to be highly protective of her pups. Avoid digging up a fox hole for this very reason.
Keep foxes out of your yard.
The best way to keep foxes out of your yard is by keeping their food sources controlled. Don’t leave food outside of your house and always keep trashcans well covered. Without food, there is no reason for foxes to come your way and cause trouble.
