In a lot of ways, ants can outwit and outlast humans. They live in communities, which enables them to survive well. They can even thrive in conditions that would be challenging for individuals.

Generally, foxes around during the day are timid and don’t want to be seen. They pose little to no danger to us. Foxes naturally prey upon small mammals and birds. Also, they are scared of anything larger than what they like to eat.
Not only will they eat meat, but foxes also love to forage for vegetables and berries as well (this usually results in them going through your bins!). Their varied diet is why they thrive so much in London, especially in the more built-up areas.
In London, they scavenge for pet food left out and in our rubbish bins during the night, so London gardens may need fox proofing.
We’ve had a pretty mild winter this year, and spring is looking lovely too. Let’s look forward to a great, warm summer!
In winter, pests usually find a place to hide when the temperatures start to drop, and the frost sets in. This is one of the biggest reasons that pests tend to come inside during the autumn months, to find protection against the cold.
