Britons can also use herbs as a natural deterrent for foxes, which causes no harm to the garden or to the animal.
Jordan Foster from Fantastic Pest Control explained: “You can deter foxes from entering your garden by mixing garlic and chilli pepper in boiling water and spraying it around.
“Foxes don’t like people, loud noises, flashing lights, and sudden movements. Ultrasonic devices are also available for sale, emitting high-pitch sounds only animals can hear.
“It would keep foxes away, but keep in mind that other animals will heat it too, and it may make them uncomfortable.”
