    Default mans urine does work to keep fox's away

    When we moved into our house we had a fox that visited every night......We used to watch it running around the garden with a nieghbours cat (i think they were trying to claim the teretory)


    Anyway i got the rabbits in april and was really worried about them.........At first i kept them in our outbuildings at the top of the garden for security. Our garden is very large and the rabbits seemed too far away.


    I went on the internet to see what fox's could manage to get through and i read somewhere that mans urine stops them coming. Anyway i asked my OH to wee in the garden and he thought id gone mad
    He did and then after about 4 months of no fox coming i got some fox proof chicken runs and brought them down to just outside our back door.

    They seem happier and i am happier ......... so my point is the urine mith does work. Hopefully the fox has moved on as before i had rabbits i enjoyed watching it but now it can stay away.

    Of course i still make him wee out there every now and then.
    Thanks Angela.

    Ha ha, love it. I'd read dogs' urine worked as a deterrent but not mans'. Just as weel reaaly because I don't think hubby would be as obligong as my two dogs.

    Dogs wee didn't work as we have 4 dogs and that didnt bother the cheeky fox as they used to go mad when they saw it and it used to look as if to say "your behind glass and can't get to me." But if it saw us it scarpered........So it must be the mans wee that works.......
    Thanks Angela.

    Presumably the man can do the deed in something and then scatter it around the garden? Helps a bit with the neighbour-shock factor!

    Good idea......Maybe ladies wee would work if the men think your nuts and have gone mad! My partner thought i was mad and he wouldn't believe me, but did as he was told....

    Womens urine doesn't work apparently. I know an older lady that keeps geese, chickens and so on she tried placing her own urine around the borders but it had no effect whatsoever. She still lost several geese to a fox sadly.
