Problems & Diseases

Since food is readily available to them in residential neighborhoods, foxes are often found lurking around private properties, and their close proximity can put people at risk of injury. Though they won't bite unprompted, foxes attack when they are rabid or protecting their young. Fox bites are painful and can get infected if they are not cleaned properly. Since the pests are known carriers of several diseases, including rabies, their bites also carry the threat of transmission.

Fox Bite Treatment

Individuals who are bitten by foxes should take immediate action. First, wash the wound with soap and water. After the bite is cared for properly, report the incident to the health department, local animal control agency, or police department. Even if the bite is not severe, it is advisable to seek medical attention to avoid the risk of getting rabies or another disease. To prevent infection, clean the bite site and dress it with a fresh bandage every couple of days.

Prevention & Removal

In order to avoid being bitten, property owners should make their yards less favorable to foxes. This includes eliminating debris piles and constructing wire mesh barriers to keep the pests away. If faced with a fox problem, individuals should hire a professional wildlife control expert to take care of the issue. The technicians at Critter Control ensure residents stay safe by removing foxes before they can bite.
