Answer: Hi Jana,

Thanks for sending in your question.

There are usually a couple of problems that everyone in Brisbane has. One being bush turkeys digging up their gardens and the other being possums.

Possums usually don’t dig so that eliminates them.

Unfortunately for you if it is Bush Turkeys they are protected. The only way to stop them getting into the garden is to erect a barrier of some kind around the area.

If this doesn’t sound right get back to us and we’ll see what else we can suggest.
