There are many species of foxes in the United States, including gray, island, kit, and swift foxes, but the most common is the red fox. Foxes are notorious carnivores and will seek out and slaughter any livestock on your property. The red fox is nocturnal and rarely seen by humans, especially during the day. If a fox has slaughtered your livestock or threatened your pets/family, call Critter Control's Virginia Beach office or leave us a message here.
what's the problem with foxes?
- Foxes do not usually enter homes. The main draw to properties is food sources — foxes are especially known to attack livestock. They can kill an entire population of chickens.
- Often, foxes will kill more than necessary for consumption and hide the remaining carcasses in a hole for a later time.
- Foxes are a leading rabies carrier, and their feces can also transmit additional diseases.
