I'd install some lights @WCE2019. Put a motion sensor on them.

Re: Bandicoots

I live in Hobart and have laid Dynamic Lifter around my fence line.  They dig through it and, Oi suspect, eat it.

My garden is also full of solar lights - about 80 of them.  Some turn on when there is action.  Others go through the night.  The bandicoots are not deterred one bit.  Brazen as pie.

Re: Bandicoots

That’s easy! Put your cats’ food on a large box or a low table and let your cat eat it where the bandicoots can’t reach it. Cat food or biscuits aren’t really very good for bandicoots, although they don’t know it, and will eat it if they can :smile: Seeing as this is an old conversation and I’ve just seen it, I hope it’s still valid.
