1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    Has anyone had any success with these to keep Foxes away ? We are getting a fox in our garden every night at the moment and leaves us nice piles of crap to pick up most days.

    We are planning to get a puppy in the next few months, so would like to stop this before then. Added bonus if it keeps the neighbours cats out as well.

    Hi I tried one. Cost me about £20 to keep cats away. Nextdoors tomcat sprayed it first day. Then crapped in my garden.

    No had it full on for weeks. It was obvious the cats knew it was there and making a noise but it did'nt seem to bother them. Other folk I know have had similar results.

    Tried a few now, latest one was some ultrasonic pulse generator that you hook up to a car battery, none of them have been effective at deterring anything.

    Bit of a waste of money i think

    Portable electric fence? It's the only thing that protected my friend's chickens. I tried one of those ultrasound generators. It ate batteries and had at best a modest effect. It died in bad weather, so I don't rate them

    To be honest the only method to go down is the rabbit proof fence line, they will allways dig at the fence line so a line of mesh along the ground the length of the fence is the way forward. If thats how they are getting in.

    OK, bought one not long after I started this thread. The fox still occasionally passes through the garden, but does not stay and has not left anything for me to clear up.
    I also put some plastic spike strips on the gate and back fence.
