Foxes are nocturnal canines that are quite common throughout Wisconsin. Like the coyote, foxes are adapting more to the urban areas of Milwaukee in recent years. Red foxes (10-14 pounds) are slightly bigger than grey foxes (8-11 pounds). Each fox gets its name from the color of its red or grey fur. Grey foxes are excellent climbers and blend better into their environment. Red foxes can hear very low frequencies that allow them to detect rodents underground. Both animals create dens, but grey foxes will use their dens more often than red foxes. 

FOX CONTROL: HOW TO GET RID OF FOXES?

  • 1. Fox Problem

    Foxes are adapting more to Milwaukee’s suburban and urban areas. They are opportunistic hunters and will eat whatever food is available. Not only does this make them a problem for poultry farmers, but also for homeowners who have small dogs or cats.

  • 2. Trapping & Removal

    Advanced Wildlife Control is one of the only companies fully-equipped to handle fox problems in southeastern Wisconsin and the Milwaukee Metro Area. We believe in humane animal removal. Therefore, we will humanely live trap and relocate the foxes 30+ miles away from your home. 

  • 3. Fox Prevention

    We recommend homeowners to keep an eye on their cats or dogs when let outside, especially during dawn and dusk. Ensuring spaces underneath decks, sheds, and porches are closed off will also prevent foxes from making dens on your property.

Foxes are opportunistic hunters and will eat whatever food is available, primarily rabbits and rodents. However, they will attack domestic animals like dogs and chickens. 

Both red and grey foxes are found throughout Wisconsin, especially in forests and farmlands. With urbanization, foxes are adapting more into suburban and urban areas of Wisconsin. They will make underground dens under decks, porches, hollow trees or logs, and brushy areas. 

Red foxes breed in mid-January. They only have one litter each year, with about 1-10 pups born mid-March. This is also the only time a red fox uses a den to raise her young. The baby red foxes will stay with their parents until autumn before going off on their own.

Grey foxes breed in mid-February. They only have one litter each year, with about 3-4 pups born mid-April to mid-May. The baby grey foxes will also stay with their parents until late-summer and early-autumn before going off on their own.
