Why Control Foxes
Unfortunately, foxes need to be controlled as they can carry diseases which may affect humans and pets.
They can also carry a range of parasites, detrimental to the health of domestic pets and people. They can also cause damage to gardens and under buildings by digging out burrows.
Foxes (and dogs) carry a number of internal parasites. For people, the most important is the roundworm (Toxocara Canis) and Echinococcus, which cause hydatid disease. These diseases are acquired by ingestion of worm eggs passed in the droppings of an infected animal.
Foxes are also susceptible to Weil’s disease (Leptospirosis), which can be passed on to domestic pets and humans via contact with their urine.
