Fox poo in garden

I went into my garden this morning and there appears to be loads of mounds of fox poo around. Is there a natural repellent I could use, and should I just leave it to biodegrade? I have small children but haven't let them into the garden since. Any thoughts?

How lovely that you have foxes in your garden! Clean it up and put it in the compost bin or something. Tell your kids not to touch poo.

I've heard foxes don't like the smell of garlic.

Hi, I'm now not sure what this poo is, like small brown mounds everywhere. I've tried picking up what I can but there is just so much. Should I be trying to disinfect area too?

just googled and appears to be earthworm castings, which would explain the number of birds circulating on the weekend. Any ideas how to get rid as looks messy

Earthworms are good for your garden

Wait for the earthworm casts to dry off a bit, and then use a broom to brush them about and into the lawn. Worms are good.
