Is it time you call a professional for fox removal on your property? Both red and gray foxes are native to Illinois. Red fox are the larger of the two species; gray fox are much smaller. While it is not uncommon to confuse them by color since red fox can appear gray, and vice versa, a white-tipped tail indicates a red fox.
Fox inhabit diverse habitats, and adapt to suburban and urban areas. They are omnivorous, feeding on a variety of animals and plants, including squirrels, mice and fruits. Homes and yards provide foxes with habitat and food, while conflicts often occur in the springtime when they are looking for denning sites and may build under a porch or shed. They can also eat cats, dogs, chickens and ducks.
The safety of your property is so important. The longer the problem with foxes is ignored, the worse the damage can become. A fox can wreak havoc on many important aspects of your home and property, such as sewer pipes, electrical lines, and even utilities. Utility damage can vary from a simple repair to something way more drastic. These problems may not be covered by your insurance if damaged by a fox, and can be very expensive to repair.
Another concern when dealing with foxes is injury to you and your family. When damage is done to your property, it can leave you with a higher risk for physical injury. If undetected these damages can be a serious hazard for potential accidents on your property. This can be avoided!
Make sure you call a professional if fox removal is needed on your property.
