Dealing with the Red Fox

The residents of the Baltimore area are no strangers to seeing different forms of wildlife throughout their day. While some creatures are seen on a daily basis, others are a rarer sighting, which may surprise some residents. When Baltimore residents see a red fox in their area or on their property, they are often unsure what to do or how to handle the situation.   The red fox tends to use the underneath of sheds, decks, and crawl spaces to create dens for their young. You should understand that if a red fox is living in your yard, they likely have young that they will be protective over. If you see a red fox during the light of the day, that doesn’t mean they are infected by rabies. The red fox can be active both during the day and night, so the alarm isn’t necessary right away. The red fox is also typically afraid of humans, so they should most likely run away from you. If they come closer or don’t seem afraid, they could either be used to human contact, or they could possibly have rabies. If you come across a red fox in your yard, you should keep all children and pets inside until professionals have come to remove the fox. If you can safely, remove any food or trash from your yard to stop attracting the animal.  You should then keep your distance from the animal and call the professionals of Mid Atlantic Wildlife Control.   The professionals at Mid Atlantic Wildlife Control are trained to humanely handle red fox control situations in the Baltimore County area.
