Fox Pest Control
in Maidstone and the Surrounding Areas

Foxes are usually nocturnal pests which, while attractive to many, can cause ongoing problems for residents and commercial clients in Maidstone, and those in the surrounding London and Kent areas. Effective fox pest control eradicates issues in urban and rural communities, particularly when the presence of foxes may be a danger to livestock, or to families in our wider trading area with small children and pets.

At Sabre Kent Ltd, we use humane pest control methods to remove threats and improve the security of your property.

Common Urban Pests

Fox pest control services are more commonly required in urban areas such as suburban streets, public parks and commercial sites in and around the Maidstone area. They can often be found in packs, but will often enter property alone, from dusk until dawn. Like most pests, including mice and rats, foxes can be found infiltrating homes and commercial properties because they are principally attracted to food waste.

Our clients in London and Kent can expect to see the typical forms of behaviour listed below:

  • Digging up holes and flower beds in the garden
  • Scavenging for food in refuse bags
  • Chewing through external wires and cables
  • Fouling and marking territory around a property
  • Unwelcome noise during the night in mating season

Fox Pest Control Services

At Sabre Kent Ltd, we recommend a range of environmentally friendly and humane practices for fox pest control, all of which comply with Industry Codes of Best Practice from the British Pest Control Association (BPCA) and National Pest Technicians Agency (NPTA). While understandably seen as pests, foxes are still under protection in the United Kingdom.

It is against the law to inflict unnecessary harm on foxes, which are protected under the 2006 Animal Welfare Act. Failure to adhere to government regulations could result in a prison sentence and a potential maximum fine of £20,000.

The following are not permitted for fox pest control:

  • Spring traps and snares which aren’t ‘free-running’
  • Using animals or birds to hunt or bait foxes
  • Use of harmful gases or poisons
  • The wilful destruction of fox habitats
  • Knives, clubs, crossbows or explosives as weapons

Homeowners and commercial clients in Maidstone, and across the surrounding areas, can rely on our qualified team to survey their properties and recommend suitable pest control methods

Humane ways to carry out fox pest control include:

  • Fox-proof fencing to protect household pets and poultry kept in outdoor hutches and chicken runs
  • Cages and traps designed to hold foxes, checked every 24 hours, until we can remove them safely.
  • Repellent sprays applied to property exteriors to stop foxes marking their territory and fouling
  • Deterrent alarms with short ultrasonic bursts as a safe and ethical fox pest control solution

Sabre Kent Ltd also specialises in rodent, insect and bird control. You can use our range of pest control services with confidence knowing we always act in the best interests of wildlife, but always with your own interests at heart.
