London Pest control has seen a considerable increase in recent year, when it comes to dealing with foxes. The problem when it comes to foxes lies in the fact that they are simply so cute. When it comes to a pest such as a nasty stinging wasp, or a filthy cockroach, then whether or not to get rid of the pest is a non-question. Something so blatantly noxious has to be dealt with.
People seem ambivalent though, when it comes to foxes. They are a sizeable mammal, for starters, which makes people feel guilt about the notion of having foxes exterminated. It simply isn’t the same as swatting a fly. Killing a fox is similar in some ways to killing a dog. After all, they are from the same genus.
You see a fox on the prowl and it has a cute face and a big bushy tail, and it’s hard to deal with the fact that they cause massive problems that have to be dealt with. It is a case of people making excuses for the fox because of their appearance. If you know the real extent of the problems that foxes cause, though, then the need to deal with foxes via a professional pest control company becomes apparent.
They carry diseases that can easily kill off your family pets, and that’s without considering the fact that a fox will think nothing of actually physically killing your dog or your cat for food. The distemper virus that foxes carry can easily be transmitted to your dogs, cats and other pets. Distemper is deadly, and so by being humane about avoiding using the services of a pest control company to deal with foxes, you are actually putting your family pets at risk. Foxes also carry something called sarcoptic mange, which is scabies, which is also something that can be transmitted onto humans.
And so, if you are having problems with foxes in your garden or surrounding area, then the best way to deal with this is to enlist the services of a professional pest control company. Whilst welcoming these cute creatures into your vicinity might seemingly be a benign pleasure, the potential upshot of their presence can be something that carries serious risk to you and your family.
