A little bit of table salt sprinkled about will kill snails and slugs. once they slither across it they are history. That is how I got rid of the giant slugs that infested my place. Now, if I could only get rid of the big roaches!

Just yesterday I learned that the magpie was also an import into our country. That pretty black and white bird with the long tail feathers gets to looking pretty ugly when he is ripping up your garbage and raiding the nests of other birds. They are as smart as crows and thrive in manmade environments. They have learned to avoid my back yard!!

Yes Captain. Sometimes the fools have the answers but those claiming to be wiser refuse to listen. As for the alliteration, I think I will tackle 's'ssss my next effort. If I keep it up I will lose total credibility on the forum. I believe in setting goals.

What excellent alliteration, Kody. I think we can solve many of these problems if we just introduce some more invasive species to deal with the already all-too invasive species.
Pirhana will take care of the carp. Mongooses... Mongeese... the plural of mongoose will take care of all of the snakes. Tigers will deal with the monkeys.
Think it won't work? Just try it. I have had worse ideas.

Way to go Gayne, who else could have me laughing and depressed at the same time. That's alright because laughing over what is wrong is an essential skill to cultivate in this day and age. I had no idea that I should be worrying about slimy snails and African worm invasions. Some would call it poetic as most of the problems you mention are the result of man screwing up. We seem to make a habit of introducing species where they disrupt the natural balance. Kind of like the prim and proper English ladies thinking the English sparrow would be nice to see in North America and why not get some rabbits into Australia? Let's send some coyotes back to England to return the favour. Those French folks might really enjoy our magpies! I say bring some excitement to Venice with some sea crocodiles swimming along side of the gondolas. Mmmmmm, Manitoba moose might manage magnificently meandering Malaysian marshes.

Ugh, I don't consider myself to be overly scared of snakes, but those pythons give me the willies! I wish I had the problem of the car-attacking turkeys though, I wouldn't even swerve...mmm, trimmings!

A lot of these things are brought into this country and we continue to allow it. It just amazes me. Asian carp, zebra mussels, snakeheads, pythons, you name it.

News Flash

Turkeys are good to eat, easy to cook, and can be eaten other than on Thanksgiving and Christmas. Call me when it's ready and I'll bring the wine.

those wolves in France don't happen to be german? Because if they are we could deploy some of our wolves from the west and the midwest to try and liberate France. And if that doesn't work, who cares, it's France.

What about zebra mussels? They are multiplying by the gazillions. They are in our river systems and will soon cut off our water supplies. Case in point - check out Council Grove,KS recently.
