How to stop a fox crapping in my garden?
I know there are a load of threads on here about stopping cats, but I have a fox issue. Not Sam or any other jubilee young lady, but a big ginger four legged animal. Be seems to live in next doors garden which is massively overgrown as we used to see him sunbathing in there but it is now so overgrown he has started to come into our garden. He has a tendency to crap in the middle of the grass, and it stinks! I can’t get to the fence to repair it to stop it coming in as it is behind our hedge but I want to discourage him from even thinking about popping over for a poop. People the other side have just got a dog so I think that is another reason he is visiting more regularly. Not keen on getting a cat or dog to scare it either.
Anyone had any success in getting rid?Posted 4 years ago
I live <20m from arable land and have had a similar problem with foxes (and moggies) pooping on my front lawn and border.
I found repellant to help a little but on its own it was ineffective. The best combination I’ve found is keeping your lawn reasonably short, wee and cat repellant.
I’ve gone from it being quite a problem with multiple poops almost daily to it not being a problem at all.
I pee in a bottle and pour it in the same spots every couple of days to prevent awkward questions or trouser snake moments with the neighbours.Posted 4 years agochilled76Member
Second the weeing idea. I keep chickens and pour urine from a bottle on the grass and around the perimeter. It really repels them.
You might also want to try and squirt some at the gap in the fence through the bush… might just stop it coming over full stop.
Also… on a slightly amusing note I discovered through doing this I have an abnormally large bladder, I can easily fill a wine bottle and keep going 🙂Posted 4 years ago
I have started peeing in a bottle and pouring over where I think it comes in, but I also have to pour some in the compost. There just isnt enough to go round!Posted 4 years ago
The grass is kept pretty short, but I guess I need to be more regular in my trimming. Any particular cat repellant that seemed to work in tandem with trimming and peeing,Capt Slow?NobeerinthefridgeSubscriber

sod the hedge, fix the bloody hole in the fence slacker. They arent known for their jumping skills.
I’d disagree. Watched one actually jump up on the roof of the house a few weeks back, granted the back of our cottage slopes down to about 7 feet, but the big bugger wandered about n the roof for quite a wee while. I’m for trying the pissing in a bottle routine (not on the roof though!)Posted 4 years ago
