Red foxes (Vulpes vulpes) pose a serious threat to Australia’s wildlife and livestock. Australia spends more than $16 million per year on fox control, primarily poison baiting. However, the effectiveness of these control programs is not always clear, particularly when baiting is intermittent or conducted at small-scales. We have developed “FoxNet”, a new fox population modelling tool to help land managers make optimal decisions around fox control.
