MENU Central Coast Deer & Vermin Control

Fox Control-Save Australia. We are the major Australian controller of foxes.

In regards to fox control you have several options that can be completed by Central Coast Deer and Vermin Control.

1080 Baiting

Although poisoning programs can be carried out year-round, baiting is most effective when alternative food is scarce.


  • Majority of foxes that take baits will be euthanised and will typically die within burrows
  • Dens don’t need to be accessible
  • Cameras can be used to identify animals present at bait station station


  • Signage required, during and for up to 4 weeks after completion of baiting program
  • Domestic animals (mainly dogs and cats) could be affected

Leg Hold Trapping

Feral Fox Control :: Central Coast Deer and Vermin Control

Leg hold traps can be used within areas that are too small to bait with 1080.


  • No poison used
  • No warning signs or notification required
  • Padded jaws on traps


  • Non targeted species could be caught, but if correctly installed by Central Coast Deer and Vermin Control professionals this is unlikely.


Caging may be useful for the control of nuisance animals but is not effective as a general fox control method.

Feral Fox Control :: Central Coast Deer and Vermin ControlCage traps are used to capture problem foxes in urban/residential areas and other areas where it is unacceptable or undesirable to use 1080 or leg-hold traps. Animals trapped in a cage can be transported away from the area for euthanasia. From an animal welfare perspective, cage traps are preferred over leg-hold traps as fewer injuries are sustained and non-target animals can be released unharmed unharmed.


  • Most humane way of control


  • Time consuming
  • Mainly effective on young foxes
