Turkeys can be very destructive and single-minded when they decide to build a mound in your yard. It is the male turkey that builds the mound and then invites females to lay their eggs. When building his mound, a male turkey can scratch together all the mulch in your garden and then when finished he may even bring your neighbors mulch over to add to his mound.
Turkeys are most active during the mating season which goes from August through to the end of December. At other times of the year turkeys will scratch around looking for grubs and other food but aren’t as damaging to your garden. See our Bush Turkey FAQS.
Turkeys are a protected native animal but we have a wildlife permit which allows us to catch and relocate them. If a turkey is mounding, we can set a cage on top of their mound and once caught, our serviceman will take the turkey a long way away to ensure it doesn’t return. We recommend removing the mound as soon as the turkey has been relocated. If the mound is not removed another turkey will move in to the area and take over the building process. See our Turkey Media Articles.
