In Waltham Cross foxes have become a problem.
Waltham Cross foxes
An increasing problem in urban areas, foxes are opportunistic feeders and will eat insects, worms, berries, small birds, small mammals and food scraps left by humans. They can also carry mange, a type of skin disease caused by parasitic mites, which can be picked up by dogs and passed on to people. There are 2 methods of control we use, live trapping or shooting. Shooting is the preferred method as it is cost effective, achieves better results and is more humane. Shooting will be done at dusk.
Not all sites are suitable for shooting. When trapping is carried out we ask the customer to check the traps twice a day & occasionally tip food into the trap. The customer must then call the office as soon as a fox is caught.
Before any shooting or trapping treatment is started we need to carry out a survey to see if any control can be carried out (in some cases the site is unsuitable to use a high powered rifle or where a live trap will be interfered with) and if so the best method to use. There will be a period of pre baiting prior to the start of any treatment and we may ask for a diary to be kept of times and dates of sightings.
The survey fee is £50.00 + VAT (outside of M25). The price for one shoot is £170.00 + VAT (dusk or night shoot, outside of M25). Trapping is charged for the initial set-down & pickup which is £120.00 + VAT & then £60.00 + VAT per extra visit (outside of M25).
