Gray Foxes typically look for more secluded, wooded areas, and Red Foxes typically use forests and grassy areas. The reds are more prominent near cities than grays. Foxes are generally shy but can wreak havoc on your home and property if they set up their homes near yours. They will eat anything and rummaging through your garbage is a spot for an easy meal. They will also prey on livestock and small pets and can also carry diseases like rabies as well as fleas and ticks. It is important to resist feeding foxes
near your home, as they may become comfortable around humans and begin approaching them more frequently. That said, if foxes are visiting your property, they need to be safely removed.
