Have the man of the house pee around the perimeter of your property. The animals won't cross that line. Interesting, huh!

We could use a few more coyotes as the rabbits are taking over. Should be funny to see all the men standing in the front yard taking care of business.

Ever read "Never Cry Wolf" by Farley Mowat, Marianne? Your's is indeed the theory, but if the beasts get hundry, they will certainly invade the territory...likewise, we males take long, steady "whizzes", and a canine can just "spot" and "mark" with remarkable bladder control! Mowat relates how he tried to do the same by drinking innumerable pots of tea in the Arctic in 1947; I suspect today that most males would be using that watery American Beer...but I digress..

I'm chuckling here. When I was in college, we had parties at my parent's home when they were gone. Lots of beer trails then....

Sounds like you need to have a kegger at your house once again.

We live just under the Niagara Escarpment (a 300 foot high hill).. Neighbour is a 90 year old tiype, retired engineer...who built a pool into his pack yard that he peronally designed and had the steel mill, where he was chief Engineer run anyways, the raccoons came and built a "nest" on top of his little "pool house", and he shrugged and said it was just "Nature taking her way" Subsequently, he realised that we all leave our garbage cans in our back yards (in my case, in the garage) and these raccoons started to raid his...sadly, for them, they started to wash their findings in the sacred "pool" before they would eat them...and so that was an end to it... Dave set a garbage can in his yard, lined with an (insulating" plastic bag...filled it partway with fruit cocktail and such coon and possum yummies, and plugged it in (really late at night) with the positive lead on the can, and the negative ground on the lid... The unsuspecting little animals smelled the "boty" and scrambled up the side of the garbage can...when the touched the insulated lid, the circuit was complete, and they were electrocuted... At about 0300 hrs, Dave came back out, carefully unplugged the contraption, tossed the three carcasses into the plastic bag, and tied it off, allowing the City to take it away with the trash in the morning. Life Lesson: Don't mess with Old Men; especially Engineers! Or at least make sure they like your dog or cat...

Chairlifter, that is a great story. Hubby loved that one.
Dec. 6, 2012 7:56 pm
Marie, maybe.... We'd have to import the drinkers, however.
Dec. 6, 2012 7:58 pm
How sad is it that I knew the answer to the question?? Gotta love living in Texas! Gderr my dogs kill any possoms that come into the yard. I always ask my hubs are you sure it is dead and not playing possom and at least 3 or 4 times it was! After the first time we bring the gun out just in case.

Sounds like my sister, Jess!
Dec. 6, 2012 8:13 pm

Funny story and Quite a suggestion Missy! ! No wonder there are no critters near our house!! Lol jk:)

Coyotes in your neck of the woods? Case of beer and I'm there! No more coyotes.
Dec. 6, 2012 8:27 pm
We use to find scat on our pool deck from the coyotes. I have no idea why they left our area as there is plenty of food. I am happy not to have to clean up scat, however. Maybe my DH was out in the yard watering the perimeter when I wasn't watching.

Sounds like another opportunity for an AR round-up . . . with bd providing the entertainment...? LOL!

Can remember a "house party", where we were welcoming "Wes and Lois" into their first house...tiny little place, one bathroom, all sorts of people, all sorts of beer drinking, mid winter in Western Canada with all sorts of snow,,,got the picture? One bathroom, 50/50% males and females, and at some later point in the party, with a lineup to the single washroom, headed by the slower serviced females, one of my budies, staggers in through the back door, with the ripe advice "Don't eat any yellow snow"... Don't get me started! Some of those parties, some military connections, let alone the "recipes" for good rednecking fun! I could make you all howl with laughter on how these things were done, 40 some years ago! Will have to giggle myself to sleep...on how you get really really drunk and spew a bag of fertiliser on the "hated" neighbours lawn, spelling out "FU" in its full spelling, in his absence, and the subsequent clowning...
Dec. 6, 2012 8:52 pm
I'd bet you'd have us all laughing with the stories, chairlifter!

Coyotes were plenty around here,they even had a bounty out on them about 5 years ago,saw pick up trucks going with a truck load of dead ones.I love animals and felt sorry for them,until they got our dog,then i would have gladly went and shot them myself,but i hate guns.They are still around,just not as many.

My mom who is a recent widow just asked my husband to get her a hand gun last weekend. She has coyotes coming all of the way up to her porch and she's afraid for her dogs. Makes me very, very nervous getting her a gun though!

In my area, lots of coyotes and foxes this year... and over 300 cats reported missing in our town! Keep your cats in if you've got them in your area.

Good morning Marianne, well here I am this morning drinking my coffee and laughing wildly. And, now I've got this visual in my head of Russ walking around the parameter of your house, looking over his shoulder and peeing every little bit. And realizing that all the men in your neighborhood are doing the same. LOL! Orangezest would call that marking your territory.

And these days, Candice, it would be easy for him to come up with enough "liquid." :)

Supposedly this also works to keep deer away from your flowers and shrubs. I doubt it lasts very long. Irish Spring soap shavings supposedly work as well. Some of the commercially available deer repellants tend to have their own obnoxious odor (smell like a sewer) that is wors then the problem you are trying to solve....LOL.
