How to keep foxes, badgers and cats out of your garden – five hacks to deter pests

Life & StyleHow to keep foxes, badgers and cats out of your garden - five hacks to deter pests


How to get rid of foxes

Foxes will bee-line for livestock and food scraps and are known to leave unpleasant piles of excrement on garden lawns.

Similarly to badgers, most foxes will come out at night and can be deterred through motion sensor lights or chicken wire barriers over flower beds and vegetable patches – but there are a few other methods that will also work.

Prickle strips

These cheap, plastic coverings are the perfect solution to lawn-loving foxes and will keep your border free from hungry pests.

Lay prickle strip coverings over your lawn edging, pots, flowerbeds and vegetable patches to stop foxes from digging for food.

You can also pin them to tree trunks, fencing and other vertical surfaces to stop foxes from entering your garden in the first place.

Secure rubbish bins and compost

Food scraps and rubbish should always be secured at night to prevent foxes from making a mess.
Waste bin locks and bricks are perfect for securing loose lids and removing the enticing scent from your garden.
