Urine for Foxes?

Margherita C in Nine Elms
Is it true that mens Pee Pee, keeps foxes away? I am having problems with one who attacked one of my cats last night!

We had problems with foxes, but the ultrasonic deterrents Pest Bye, and Fox Watch helped. It took a few weeks for the foxes to learn to keep away, but we have far fewer stinks, no poo and less destruction. The Pest Bye is cheaper, but seems more powerful.
Margherita C
Thank you, but un ultrasonic deterrent  would probably upset my cats ! I have a friend who is a hairdresser so I'll probably try human hair.

Decorator, plus.
