We and our next door neighbor have put up trip wires in the backyards using monofilament line. We live in Gwinnett County which is illegal alien central and they are always running through people’s yards in the middle of the night. We also put up a woodpile that runs down one side of our yard and is about 3-4 ft tall. You can’t see it in the dark and we have had a bunch of them run full tilt into it. That has got to be brutal. Sometimes they hit it so hard that part of the top of it is tilted forward.
Our neighbor put a trail cam outside the house and got pics of illegals coming right up to his back door and out in the yard trying to steal some metal he had piled up.
I have been trying to get the other half to rig up a 12 volt battery with a wire and an alligator clip to the front door knob. We just had somebody sneaking around on the front porch the other night. I would have loved to light that guy up. The dog started barking at the front window and ran him off. If they should get in the house we will just shoot them but I’d just as soon not have to.
Long story short all this is going on and we have not even had the crash yet. So you can imagine what will transpire when it all unravels. The best thing to do is get thee to the country. That is what we are in the process of doing.
Wow. Until you can move, you may want to try the “I’m an ahole - don’t mess with me” approach that others have described. I would be tempted to hook up a few outside speakers and find some good audio files of automatic weapons fire and a ferocious dog barking. Randomly play them at different hours of the night for a few weeks. If nothing else, it would have good entertainment value. ;)
And you could try the empty beer cans + empty ammo boxes in the the back yard, too. Good luck to you.
Sorry to bust your bubble, but that is totally worthless. Unless you put your tongue on it, you won't feel 12 volts.
Sounds like Imperial Beach or Chula Vista, CA 35 years ago! It was like a locust invasion every night what with the illegals running north. I lost a nice S&W .357 there, but I think the crooked cop living across the street stole it. Glad to move away!
The battery won’t work. The voltage is far too low.
I recommend an electric fence energizer. They are about $65, which is less than most batteries.
