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.
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.
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.
Our customers are our #1 priority! At Advanced Wildlife Control, we want to make sure your animal problems are resolved in a timely manner. Therefore, our AWC professionals can usually be out at your property on the same day when you call or the following day.
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.
