Guide on Using Texas Fox Repellent - Does it Work???

Keeping the nuisance College Station creatures away from your premises is never an easy feat especially if it is a clever creature like fox. Your chickens and small pets will not be safe from the threat of the fox. Once they become aware on how to access your chicken coop, getting rid of them can be difficult. They only need a tiny opening in order to invade our chicken coop. Sometimes, trapping and blocking their access will not be effective.

Are Texas Fox Repellents Effective?

Before you become aware of their presence, the fox has already established their territory in your property. You will need to remain prepared for the invasion of this predator. Start by creating a place that is unwelcoming to them. Some people choose to use repellent and apply them at the entrance to discourage the creature from invading the property.

Homemade College Station Repellent

Homemade Texas repellents work by releasing their strong odor that may be uncomfortable for the fox. Their base ingredient may include garlic, hot pepper, or onion. Sometimes it can also be a mixture of these home ingredients. The spicy flavor of the repellent will allegedly be unbearable for the fox. This will often be sprayed on the vegetations. However, there are limitations on the effectiveness of the spray repellent. For instance, the smell of the repellent will evaporate fast when used in an outdoor setting. You will need to apply them after a few hours or after the rain. Fox can also be accustomed to the scent; a simple odor will not discourage them from hunting their food.

Spray Repellents

The spray repellents will be composed of ingredients like ammonia and citronella. This will make the Texas fox think that there are other animals present in the area that might scare them. Ammonia will often be found in the urine of the animals such as coyote. These deterrents may be available in spray or powder form. Spray repellents often contain chemicals that may have an adverse effect on our health. A direct contact will be hazardous to the pets and to kids. Just like the homemade repellents, you will need to reapply it multiple times.

Machine Deterrent

There are varieties of College Station machine deterrents that can allegedly drive away the creature. However, based on the studies, the results are inconclusive.
