Security Poll

What is the biggest single threat to your household security? This is the question asked here.

So far it looks like a neck and neck race between Squirrels and the Economy with Bunnies coming a close third.

    Squirrels are evil, but since we wrapped the house in metal, they haven’t figured out how to get back in. Yet.

    Bunnies, for certain. Keeping them out of my garden is my biggest worry, they nearly ate all my bush beans.

    Right now, we’re dealing with ants, fruit flies, and a furniture company that’s taken a bunch of our money and hasn’t given us any furniture in return. I’m not sure which actually threatens our security the most.

    Christians, ever since the cops made me shut down my lion pit.

    Bastards have no sense of humor.

    Trapping Report:
    “A new invention called a live trap has mad every day living–well, livable again. Thanks to those engineers at Fleet Farm, anyone can now own a device that will catch squirrels, raccoons, and even the neighbors cat so that you can release them or take them to the Animal Humane Society.”

    Just listen to this users testimonial: “This spring the squirrels were eating the gladiola bulbs faster than I could plant them. When I bought the live trap, I caught 21 squirrels, two raccoons, and three of the neighbors cats. Of course I released the squirrels and coons into the local park, and I didn’t drown the raccoons as recomended by the City people, but I warned the neighbors that I am willing to drop the cats off at the Animal humane society because I can’t stand the tomcat smell in my yard.”

    Transporting animals after trapping them in Minnesota is a crime. In most states, in fact. In some cases it is a federal crime, depending on the animal.

    Squirrels, being evil, are subject to drowning. However, I don’t bother to trap them unless they get into the house, which they shouldn’t be able to do anymore. Any that can are truly evil.

    What about the ones that are already in there but are hiding out … waiting ….?

    They’re not hiding anymore. They couldn’t resist the peanut butter.
