Foxes are normally nervous of people and try to avoid both adults and children. Occasionally however, they are a little bolder and will enter gardens in broad daylight to search for a quiet place to rest, look for food scraps or just because they are curious. This boldness isn’t a sign of aggression – a healthy fox would normally only attack a person if provoked. Here at BPC Pest Control in Essex though we understand if you don’t want a fox family taking up residence in your home’s garden or on your commercial property. Like squirrels, mice and pigeons they can be disruptive and unwelcome.
