I think a scarecrow would work as well with foxes as it does with crows,.....................about 3 days ! :lol:

A PIR linked to a radio might do the trick , might also deter two legged vandals !

The only thing I could ever get to work was cover beds with prickly cuttings like holly.

No to -  strong smells (creosote, pee, mothballs, scardy cat plant etc), sonic devices, fox deterant powder I am sure there were other things. Like most things it was a case of finding a balance and covering the most precious and learning more about their habits.

I can only report that ordinary garden netting draped over newly planted or sown areas has always worked for me, even where I've put dried chicken manure down.

Of course you have to take it off when the plants grow, but by then the attractive pong should have largely disappeared.

Your foxes may be more persistent, but may be worth a try if you haven't done so already.
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older

1) Find out where the fox in coming in to your plot.
2) Get a cooked chicken carcase (juice an all), put it n a net bag.
3) Drag the bag along the ground from where they are coming in, to as far away as you can get and bury the carcase.

Do this several time and change their habits. Foxes and like dogs who always use the same tree for a wee.

Sonic devises do work for a while but you need to keep moving them around.
