Fox standing on a grassy lawn - Fox Removal


Foxes, with their clever nature and adaptability, can become troublesome in residential areas. They can lead to various problems, from damaging property to threatening pets. Using professional fox removal services is vital to safeguard your home and preserve ecological balance.

1. Health and Safety Concerns

Foxes may carry diseases and parasites like rabies, posing significant health risks. Removing foxes promptly is vital to ensure the safety and well-being of your family.

2. Preventing Property Damage

Foxes are known to dig and create burrows, which can lead to damage beneath porches, sheds, and foundations. Taking quick action, including fox den removal, helps prevent costly repairs and maintains the structural integrity of your property.

3. Protecting Pets and Livestock

Foxes can prey on small pets and backyard chickens. Removing these predators is vital to ensure the safety of your animals and provide peace of mind.


At Bobcat Wildlife & Pest Management, our expertise in fox control ensures your property remains safe and peaceful. Here’s how we manage fox intrusions:

  • Humane Fox Control Methods: We use humane techniques to manage foxes, prioritizing both the animals’ well-being and our clients’ satisfaction.

  • Thorough Site Inspections: We perform detailed inspections to identify signs of fox activity, such as burrows under structures and disturbances in your yard. Red Foxes, which cause most complaints in Iowa, often burrow under decks and sheds. Our pest fox control experts ensure thorough evaluation and action.

  • Preventative Measures: After addressing the immediate fox issue, we implement strategies to secure your property against future invasions. Red Foxes breed between late December and mid-February, while Gray Foxes breed in February, making proactive measures essential during these times.

  • Eco-Friendly Techniques: We use environmentally responsible practices to ensure safety and minimize impact. Both Red and Gray Foxes are nocturnal and primarily feed on rodents, birds, and rabbits.

  • Tailored Fox Management Plans: We create individualized plans for fox removal and prevention, considering the unique behaviors of each species. Gray Foxes, for instance, can climb trees, unlike Red Foxes.


At Bobcat Wildlife & Pest Management, we address the specific challenges foxes pose to your property with our comprehensive solutions.

Our approach includes detailed inspections, humane removal techniques, and preventative strategies to keep foxes at bay. Each phase is managed with meticulous care to ensure your home remains secure and free from fox-related issues.

Foxes can be stealthy, but recognizing their signs is crucial for effective management. Here’s what to watch for:

1. Distinctive Behaviors

Look for burrow entrances near building foundations, under decks, or in your garden. These openings indicate foxes are likely creating dens nearby.

2. Visible Damage

Check for disrupted soil, scattered feathers, and damaged plants in your garden or landscaping. Such damage often suggests fox burrowing or feeding activities.

3. Tracks and Trails

Observe tracks with pointed toes and claw marks, and look for well-worn paths through your yard. These signs usually indicate frequent fox movement and den entrances.
