This. I have a fair bit of trouble with animals, or at least did. Rats and mice eat everything, possums like to sample a bit of everything here and there and king parrots love green tomatoes! I live kinda outer-urban / semi-rural fringe and so was (still am?) pretty conflicted about using baits due the risk of secondary kills of owls, pythons etc, but I just had to. Always loved the vege garden at the old place but didn't garden here for a while due being despondent about losing the constant battle with wildlife. I have raised beds, use low secondary kill baits sparingly and tight bird netting sealing to the edges of the garden. Still had problems with rats and mice though. Worked out they were tunnelling up through the bed, I assume nesting in the bed as well. The solution (I hope, been working for a few months now so I think I got it), was to dig out part of my garden bed, lay a physical barrier of overlapping chicken / bird wire and put my soil back on top. No issues since and not having to use baits at all near / in the garden anymore. Haven't caught any possums or reptiles in the bird netting either.
