How To Identify Fox Problems
Red fox and gray fox are the most common species. The red fox is dog-like in appearance, with an elongated pointed muzzle and large pointed ears that are usually erect and forward. Typically, red foxes are colored with a light orange-red coat, black legs, lighter-colored underfur and a white-tipped bushy tail. The Gray foxes color pattern is generally salt-and-pepper gray. The sides of the neck, back of the ears, legs, and feet are rusty yellow. The tail is long and bushy with a black tip.
The fox is adaptable to most habitats within its range, but usually prefers open country with moderate cover. Some of the highest fox densities reported are in the north-central United States, where woodlands are interspersed with farmlands. These resourceful critters adapt well to human environments such as farms, suburban areas, and even large communities.
It is uncommon for foxes to enter homes, however fox problems occur when they invade a premise in search of food and shelter. Foxes feeding in garbage cans, gardens and on livestock are common complaints within suburban areas. Our fox removal professionals will assess the problem and take the necessary steps to not only remove the foxes from your property but also repair damaged areas and reduce the possibility of future fox problems.
