Full Answer

Although some people kill wild turkeys to get rid of them, this does not solve the problem since more turkeys are likely to take their place. Instead, scaring them away with noises or by turning the hose on them can be effective. There are also motion-activated scarecrows that can spray water on interloping turkeys. Placing birdwire on roofs keeps them away as well. Plants and gardens can be protected from wild turkeys by covering them with cloth.
