I tried the hot stuff.......several times.........does not work. Two things
that worked for me are and accurate air rifle....I shot a few and managed to
catch a couple small ones which I released a few miles from here, but what
has worked best for me is a chicken wire fence 30" high.
You are simplifying this too much. For a start it depends on whether the
pee is from a male or female. In the case of the male the size of the 'nads
is also a factor. See if you can get DER to put 'em on the scales......
If intending to scent mark posessions I would rather get the dogs to do it
by proxy, they are better at it and have not much else to do.
yes, rabbits will rapidly take over. we
have a lot of damage from them this past winter
and too many around now. i've been lucky so
far this season with my unfenced gardens, but
i don't count on them for most of the veggie
fencing works well enough, if you have
deer in your area make the fence tall enough
to keep them out too and save yourself the
extra work later.
if you have chipmunks/squirrels, ground-hogs/
woodchucks, voles, moles, etc. there are ways of
making the fence suitable for excluding them.
you'll want a very fine mesh for excluding the
done well also put down heavy plastic sheeting
along the fence (before you put the stakes in
and before you fence), when you then put the fence
up this will help you keep the weeds from growing
on your fence. mulch the plastic to keep the
sun off it. saves a lot of bother later. it may
look rather stark, but if you let weeds grow along
your fence you may not be able to notice how a
critter finds a way in. also, avoiding having
things growing on the fence keeps the wind from
having extra things to push against and knocking
do not plant vines to grow on this fence. do
not use it for beans or anything else. if you
want climbing vines put them on their own supports.
this way if you need to electrify (for fending off
raccoons, possums, ...) it is easier to manage.
I sprayed yesterday with Walmart brand 89 cent per
bottle, Louisiana Hot Sauce. Tuesday with Cayenne
Since popping the little critter with high pressure water
on Saturday, I haven't seen him since (I check with a
flashlight about 12:00 midnight). No scat either.
I am not looking forward to a fence. Hopefully ...
By the way, deer around there parts can jump over an
eight foot fence like it was nothing. You have to build
a "cage" around your stuff. Fortunately, no deer around
they can climb a short distance, if you get
rabbit fencing it often isn't quite high enough.
our fence here is too short and they do climb
through it at times (grr!). you are better
off getting small mesh fencing that goes up at
least four feet. if you have other critters
to protect against it is better to do the whole
thing right from the start.
That's like saying that Amazon is located on the net because all users
are dirt poor. Walmart stores are located in neighborhoods of all
socieo economic levels but mostly affluent... if the Walmart where you
live is located in a ghetto what does that say about you? It's no
coincidence that the Walmart bashers are typically at the lowest
socieo economic level. Obviously you've no marketable skills, and it
shows from reading your posts, it's highly unlikely that you finished
high school. There are three Super Walmarts that I shop in the area
where I live, all in very affluent NY Capitol district hoods... in
fact the largest Walmart in the US is located in a very affluent
section of Albany. Several of my neighbors work for Walmart, all very
well paid and happy with their job... maybe you and your ilk are of
the mind set that all Walmart employees stock grocery shelves, nothing
is further from the truth, most of their employees are in management
positions, many hold highly technical positions... Walmart pays its
accountants, IT people, buyers, marketing people, building maintenance
staff, etc. as well as any comparable company and usually better.
People with your attitude feel the way you do because you aren't
qualified to stock Walmart's shelves. I also know people who think
like you, they or someone in their family was fired from Walmart for
stealing and/or drugging. Walmart has a very strict policy regarding
stealing and drugging, one offence and you're gone. Walmart also does
not tolerate poor attendance, if you don't show or are late you had
better have a good reason. I've even ran into folks shopping at
Walmart who have told me that they hate Walmart, that they'd never
shop there... and there they are with a full cart of groceries. I
like Walmart, simply because I like paying less. However their stores
are also spacious, scrupulously clean, there's lots of parking, their
staff is helpful and polite, and they sell the same exact products as
everywhere else only at lower prices... the bottle of Heinz ketchup at
Walmart is precisely the same as from any other store, only it costs
significantly less. Why don't you apply for a job at Walmart, I'd be
curious to know if they'd hire you to mop their toilets.

I find local Walmart a great place to shop with good prices and friendly
Walmart also goes through extra pains to make sure it sells decent
products. I've done some work for a couple of vendors wanting to sell
there and know this as Walmart required information on the products that
other stores didn't.

If you can find anyone to help.
I have worked for those that sell to Walmart. Walmart is brutal
on them. It is very hard to make a living selling to them.
But, it is not personal. It is just business
By the way, I have always found the argument that Walmart
places themselves in economically challenged areas to be
a bit lazy. 1) it is not true, and 2) if it was true, why
would you want to take those jobs away, other than you'd
rather poor folks suck off the public tit rather than work for
By the way, sometimes Walmart sells marginal rejects on
stuff because they are cheaper. For instance, don't
buy AAA, or AA batteries from them. Half of them will
be dead before their expiration date. But this is no
different from being informed on your purchases no matter
where you shop.
Now, lets get all those poor people working at Walmart
out of their jobs and on the public tit!
The problem with Walmart is 1) they are successful and 2) they
Oh and they make great bunny repellent.
Indeed. Your left wing is what we'd think of as being fairly right wing.
LOL. If you ever recall where you read that, could you post a link to
it please? Given your use of the word 'vulgar' did you get the sense
from the article that there was class related objection to tipping?
One aspect is lack of need (or perceived need).
While many aspects of the USA are highly homogenized, there really
is a pretty good variety of experience without leaving the country.
And that doesn't require customs, flying across an ocean or several
other hassles. Certainly I know people in the US who are very fond
of Europe, and go whenever there is an opportunity.
I've never been. It has appeal, but while I like experiencing the
variety, I hate being a tourist. That is probably because I grew
up outside Washington DC and saw the constant waves of tourists
getting the standard tours and the pamphlet experience.

Well, your off topic idiocy has garnered you membership in one
more kill file.
I'm sure this is beyond you, but this is "rec.gardens".
Don't bother with "I didn't start it".
Anyone with a brain isn't listening any more.
Wasn't very smart of me to wait this long.
Do you not comprehend how a kill file works?
Dan kill-filing you has nothing to do with his continuing participation in this
news group or with you being able to see his posts. It means he won't
Regarding rabbits, I believe I managed to trap and exile the one that had
been giving me fits by biting through the base of my Oriental and Orienpet
lilies to get to the flowers and foliage on top. Live trap baited with apples
worked within hours of setting it out!
Sure. Sometimes folks will give it a day or look at Google
to see how you respond.
I know. Doesn't mean he won't peek.
I also think it is good for other people to see how I respond.
It is probably best that he kill files me anyway. He gets
offended by alternative viewpoints (doesn't stop him from
expressing his). He doesn't see debate as great fun and a
chance to learn what others of different viewpoints think.
Excellent. Thank you! Love the apple tip.
Still haven't seen any sign out the cute little feller
for days now.
Had a frog last year in my garden. He got the king's
treatment. Made sure he had all the water he wanted.
