Occasionally foxes gain access to awkward, hard to reach, areas such as under houses (usually through broken air-bricks) or under portable cabins.
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. We will require dimensions and preferably digital photographs which may be mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. We can quote for supply and installation in the London area and for the rest of mainland UK we can ship the gate to you for easy fitting.
When using a one-way gate at any time, a thin layer of sand should be spread inside the entrance and checked daily for footprints of any foxes still under the building. Once a few days have gone by with no disturbance of the sand it will be safe to permanently seal the entrance.
On no account should this method be employed until cubs have grown old enough to have been observed using the entrance (This will usually occur at the end of April to early May time). Otherwise a vixen might be excluded and prevented from getting back to her cubs. The cubs may not be experienced enough to find their way through the one-way gate and may perish.
