With brush turkey breeding season, comes the destruction of beloved gardens and lawns. The brush turkey although a native protected species can be very destructive when it comes to lawns, stripping gardens bare of mulch leaving the plant roots exposed and damaged. Being such a dominant and territorial animal, attempts to scare or deter the turkey away with deterrents and mesh will often fail or move the bird to another location of your garden.
The reason for this behavior displayed by the brush turkey is the need to build its mound/nest for breeding season. Any attempts to demolish the mound only have a lasting effect till that following afternoon or morning when the turkey returns and again rebuilds his mound. The male brush is the culprit for the mound building and will often build a mound that can vary in size from 2 meters wide to 4 meters high.
Being that the Australian brush turkey is protected, this means any attempt to remove or harm the turkey unless permitted can occur a costly fine into the thousands. Gold Coast Pest Management Solutions hold relevant permits that allow for turkey trap and turkey removal/relocation. Once captured the turkey is removed and relocated upto 25kms away to a more suitable location where he is guaranteed not to return.
