I've buried some Bokashi waste in our garden and it's been dug up a couple of times and Im wondering by what. The wholes are up to about 10cm deep ...
We're in Eltham, Melbourne which is on the edge of the city with lots of trees and scrub. I've heard possums dont dig. Any other ideas? Foxes, wombats maybe?
Thanks for your thoughts!

I would think fox, cats or dogs
My culprit is bush turkey he digs everything I plant
Now he has discovered a taste for unripe passionfruits
I heard pecking last night outside my bedroom about 4 AM still dark and there was another pecked passionfruit this morning

little cone shaped holes are usually bandicoots.
Most likely looking for worms attracted by your compost, they usually don't do a lot of damage certainly not as bad as the omnivorous, greedy possums.

Bandicoots, I had to look that up! Wow, that's an interesting critter!! We don't have them
But we do have critters about that size that love kitchen scraps like bokashi and compost with fresh stuff in it. I always compost those things in a closed garbage can, layered with dirt and leaves every time I add more, and a tight lid. I keep it in the sun so any bugs die from the heat. In about 6 months it's almost finished, then I put it in the main compost pile."Life flows on within you and without you"...George Harrison
