    Find out where he comes in and pee on the area regularly. Foxes don't like human urine.

    Or pee in a pot from the safety of your bathroom and take it out into the garden to distribute Verdunimage

     

    (If you have indoor plumbing that is, I've heard of such luxuries outside of the border).

    Apparently lion poo works to stop deer. Perhaps the fox will think it's got competition from a much bigger rival?

    Nasty, smelly stuff fox poo.  

    A water scarecrow is supposed to be good against foxes as well as cats, herons etc.  You can google for more info and suppliers.  Just need to remember to move the sensors regularly so they don't learn the trigger points and wiggle round them.
