    I didn't think foxes were going to be a problem until today there's one in the front yard! I've been hare two years that's the first. I know they can go though poultry wire like spider webs. should we put up hardware cloth 1/2in or chain link.
     
  2. You definitely need to visit Predators and Pests, lots of suggestions.

    The chain link will keep out foxes, but if you're going to all that trouble you might want to think about 1/2" mason wire (aka hardware cloth)...[​IMG]

    I am going to put down hardware cloth 1/2 in on the bottom row of our run for the same reason.(foxes)
