Widely acclaimed as the most effective fox repellent on the market Scoot is a patented non toxic formula used to keep foxes away from protected areas. It works by mimicking scent marking odours thus leading any foxes that may be present to vacate the area in the belief that another animal has taken over its territory. Scoot is totally safe for use in gardens, on plants and edible crops and is humane, bio-degradable and very effective.
Get Off My Garden
Get Off My Garden is a citronella scented jelly granule product. Specific applications are for defending soil areas such as flower beds or planters against fouling and digging.
Wash And Get Off
Wash and Get Off spray is a unique two in one formula that will not only clean up fox fouling but will also remove the associated territory scent thus protecting the area from further attack. Supplied in a ready to use 500ml sprayer
Wash and Get Off leaves a fresh citrus aroma after application. Particularly effective on hard surfaces such as patios and driveways. Also effective against cat and dog fouling.

ScareCrow Motion Activated Deterrent System
During experiments carried out by Greenwich University on the subject of fox deterrence the ScareCrow Motion Activated Deterrent System was found to be extremely effective.
We have had a great deal of success in protecting gardens and water features from foxes with this system. The ScareCrow motion-activated sprinkler automatically detects foxes as they approach, and repels them with a short but startling burst of water. The sudden noise, movement and spray scares animals away, teaching them to avoid the area in future.
- Works day and night without chemicals or unsightly barriers
- Can be linked to other ScareCrows to form an effective water barrier
- Conserves water - uses just 2 to 3 cups per deterrence
- Operates for up to six months on a single nine-volt battery
- One ScareCrow covers approximately 1200 sq.ft
Foxwatch Ultrasonic Deterrent
Foxwatch is the most successful ultrasonic fox deterrent ever invented, and the reason is simple; Uniquely, each time the fox approaches its body heat and movement are detected and activate an ultrasound alarm (calibrated to be extremely loud to foxes ears but inaudible to humans). As the fox retreats the alarm stops and in this way the fox learns to associate its movement with the noise and give a wide berth to the protected area of over 1,350sq ft. Other ultrasonic fox deterrents do not do this. They simply emit a random or permanent ultrasound signal regardless of whether a fox is present or not. As a result any passing fox soon realises the constant sound of the alarm is not caused by them and therefore becomes immune to its effect. This is what one of our satisfied customers had to say........
"I recently purchased a Foxwatch Deterrent from you and at last, something which does what it says on the tin!
After a couple of nights of listening to frantic scrabbling on the fences as the foxes made a quick getaway from my garden, my husband and I have had peaceful nights' sleep and the garden is no longer being dug up night after night - nor is the lawn being damaged by fox urine.
It's the best £60 worth we have ever spent!"

Foxolutions offer a comprehensive range of fox proofing and exclusion services from the supply and fit of “Prickle" and "Brickle" strips to deter foxes from climbing over fences to the blocking off of entry points under sheds and decking. Electrified fencing may also be supplied as a DIY kit or with professional installation subject to full site survey. This can be particularly effective for protecting areas such as bowling greens and croquet lawns.
If you keep poultry or rabbits ask about our electric netting solutions. Netting is easy to put up, just as easy to move, and provides a highly effective deterrent. It's also very forgiving as it does not require much tensioning and adapts easily to slopes and dips in the ground.

There are several inherent disease risks associated with fox faeces which are covered in the fox problems page of this website. It is important to always clear up faeces as soon as possible using a poop scoop and bag and to deposit it in a safe and secure bin. This is so as not to allow sufficient time for any roundworm eggs to incubate. We recommend thoroughly disinfecting areas with PX Parvo disinfectant which is designed specifically for the purpose of sanitising areas that have been fouled by canines. Dog owners can significantly reduce the risk of transmission of disease to their pets in this way. Foxes will often defecate in conspicuous areas as a further means of territorial boundary marking and for this reason it is advisable to spray repellent in these areas once the fouling has been removed and the ground disinfected.
FOXES UNDER HOUSE/ PORTAKABIN
Occasionally foxes gain access to awkward, hard to reach, areas such as under houses (usually through broken air-bricks) or under school portakabins. The solution in such cases is to manufacture a one-way gate, which will allow foxes to emerge, but not let them back in. It is a box construction with a perspex gate hinged at the top. It works rather like a one-way cat flap. Foxolutions will manufacture a bespoke gate for you. For further details visit our online store
In some situations odour can be a real problem. The solution is Sol-Odamask which is a highly concentrated formulation of essential oils, odour absorbents and emulsifiers. It is suitable for masking smells in areas that foxes have been inhabiting and fouling. For example where carrion has been dragged under floorboards, decking, sheds etc
If your lawn is suffering from dying patches of turf caused by fox urine we have a solution. Lawn Rescue is a ready to use spray which neutralises the staining agents and acid in the urine by converting them into natural salts. The salts pass down easily to the grass roots where they nourish the lawn. Lawn Rescue should be applied at the first appearance of staining. It is also effective for treating areas effected by pet urine.
FOXES UNDER DECKING/SHED
Between the months of February and June there is a strong likelihood of the area under the decking/shed being occupied by a vixen with cubs. Foxes always have a back up Earth which they can fall back on if necessary so moving her on wont be too much of a hardship for her. In London and the home counties Foxolutions offer an intensive repellent spray treatment or alternatively you may purchase some Scoot fox repellent and thoroughly douse some rags with it. Push the rags under the decking/shed via the entrance with a stick. Disturb the entrance as much as you can and apply Scoot to the area. 5 Litre sprayers are ideal for this application as they have a long lance which can get to hard to reach areas. This scent marking should send a message that the den has been discovered and it will be safer to move on. The installation of a Foxwatch Ultrasonic Deterrent at the entrance to the void will also increase the likelihood of a swift exit for the foxes.
The next step is to place sticks (the small green garden canes are ideal) over the entrance like a grill. Make sure they are pushed into the soil just firmly enough to prevent the wind from blowing them and place them around an inch apart covering the entire entrance or entrances if there are more than one. Next day check if the canes have been disturbed. If so replace them and check again the following day. You must ensure the sticks remain undisturbed for at least 48hrs before you assume the den has been deserted and it is safe to proof it.
As soon as you are certain that the foxes have gone, take steps to prevent them returning. Foxes do not like decking/sheds that have draughts under them, and usually use ones that are in the corner of the garden with a wall or fence on two sides. If there is rubbish piled behind the decking/shed you have to clear the rubbish, and open up the area so that it is exposed and draughty. If you want to be absolutely sure that they will not come back, securely fix weld mesh (not chicken wire) around the bottom of the decking/shed, covering the gap and dig at least 12 inches (30 cm) into the soil.
