I will be setting up a motion-activated sprinkler this weekend in advance of my vegetable plants going in the ground - as much as the wildlife is cute to see, I don’t want my entire crop sacrificed to animals.
Hey, if you have a fox in the yard, you're not going to have a bunny within a mile of the place.
The foxes sure do seem to be efficient killing machines - I wake up almost every morning and see what bits of dead critters they've strewn across my yard. Rabbits, squirrels, rats, birds, mice - they seem to kill whatever they can, and then they come back later to eat the remains. At least they clean up after themselves.
I think they are starting to move on now - we're seeing them a little less often, and I think the babies have grown up enough now to move out on their own. At this rate they'll have to move to a new area before this one runs out of rodents for them to eat.
