Gardens can be a safe haven, but fox-related disturbances can turn that tranquility into chaos. I decided to give Karlsten's fox repellent granules a shot, influenced by its natural Citronella formulation.

The Good, The Bad, and The Foxes: My experience with the product has been a mix. On one hand, after ensuring my fences were at least 5ft high and sealing all possible entries, I still found foxes marking their territory in my garden. I tried these granules, and to my delight, I had a five-day fox-free streak. This was a significant relief and it made me optimistic about the product.

However, my initial application around my garden office didn't yield the same positive results. Foxes had previously dug around my shed. After filling in the holes and sprinkling a generous amount of these granules, I hoped for the best. Unfortunately, the very next day I found the situation worse than before. Not only was the hole dug up again, but the foxes had also managed to destroy my new flower bed. This made me wonder if the granules might have angered the foxes more.

Cost vs. Performance: While the product did work for a short duration, its effectiveness seemed to wane after two weeks. I had to constantly top-up the granules to keep the foxes at bay. This makes it less of a long-term solution and more of a temporary fix. Moreover, considering the amount I had to use for continuous protection, the cost started feeling prohibitive.

Conclusion: The Karlsten Anti-Fouling Fox Repellent Granules did show promise with its effectiveness in deterring foxes for a brief period. However, constant reapplications make it less ideal for those seeking a long-term solution. And while it did deter foxes from certain areas, it seemed to agitate them in others. In summary, while it may work for some, it's essential to weigh the product's cost and effectiveness to decide if it's the right fit for your garden.
