    How can I keep cats and foxes out of my garden?


    Is there a way to stop cats/foxes from messing in my garden? I have young children that play out in the garden and its getting to be a nuisance to keep it clean for them.

    "A cat alarm is great, you can pick them up from b&q, they make a loud super high pitched noise that humans can’t hear but cats and dogs can, this deters cats and foxes"

    "Foxes are creatures of habbit. They like their territory to keep the same so keep moving around objects that you have in your garden. Also as strange as it sounds human male urine is a deterrent to them as the fox smells the urine of a bigger male possibly a predator pouring the urine where the fox mess was found can help. Also keeping hedges and bushes trimmed helps as the garden would less cover for the fox... Security lights can help to deter cats from your garden at night."

    "Plug all gaps with mesh low down to make the pests jump into your property, if they can find an easier way they will & hopefully leave you alone
    Cats can jump but prefer not too if possible, if the cats persists, try spraying them with a fruit cordial, they soon get the message as the fur gets sticky when dry"
