Environmental Health


East Renfrewshire Council does not offer a pest control service for foxes. Foxes are territorial animals. If a pest control treatment were to be carried out, and a territory made vacant, it may be quickly re-colonised by another fox. You can deter foxes from entering your garden, by using standard animal repellent products, which can be purchased from many garden centres.

Further advice is available from The Fox Project on 01892 826222.
