    In this chapter we examine "NON-LETHAL" methods of encouraging "Beggars/Predators/Thieves/Squatters/Special Snowflakes/Liberals/Rapists/Murders/and others" to avoid the general area. And specifically our exact area. (Loose translation: Please go some place else to die)

    1.) Homemade Spike strips.
    2.) Bear boards from "HELL".
    3.) Trees felled across the highway/roads/railroads/trails/creeks/rivers/driveways/ you get the general idea.
    4.) Use of heavy equipment to block-damage-destroy-impeded all items in #3 above.
    5.) The use of animals to discourage encroachment. (Trained assault attack Guinea Fowl/Snakes/Dogs (The hounds from HELL)/Attack Hogs/Bears/Horny Breed Bull/Attack Geese/etc.)
    6.) Tripwire for smoke/sound/stench/etc.. (Including "Set'guns" armed with 12 ga. blanks or parachute flares).
    7.) Motion activated lights and alarms, that are solar powered.
    8.) Very high and hidden observation towers. Some with decoy mannequins.
    9.) Fencing and more redundant fencing and Concertina wire (Coils).



    What else you got......goal is to discourage them with extreme clarity, but mitigate possible injury. (Loose translation: Please go some place else to die)

    I have found that when ass deep in a terrifyingly urgent survival vexation, the short term goal is vividly clear. There exists no other goal, no other reality, only the short term goal.

    Excellent thread!! I will be giving this some more thought (although you seem to have already come up with ideas that I have already considered.)

    Nail a looter to a telephone pole with a spike through his mouth.

    Paint your impaled looters in different happy colors such as yellow, pink, and robin's egg blue.

    Post happy messages on billboards nearby. Example: "Come feed my disease!"

    You could use the intestines of the interlopers with whom you partied to create the letters of your message. For the exclamation point, you could use a body for the upper part and his head for the dot below.

    Nailed it!

    How about some signs?

    Keith...........I have so many signs, that Law Enforcement Officers (friends) call from the bottom of the mountain, to ask if it is safe to come up. I do some assistance with LEO's.

    IBME,

    Ref 5; "Attack Geese"; wasn't familiar with use of adjective "attack" but at our China oil exploration camps, it was common for using geese around perimeter. The geese equaled dogs for intruder alerts and related. Although not able to physically repel like big dogs, the costs for the geese upkeep were, relatively speaking, low. The economies of scale freed up funds for additional types of protection.

    Ref 6; Here, besides the legality matters, flares are "discouraged" because of the wold fire concerns - actually "guarantees". Wild fire prevention is a "big ticket" item here.

    Ref: "What else..."; Illumination. This place can be made as bright as a high school football stadium for the night game. I had a tug boat horn but decided not to rig it up. I could have installed a public address system but decided to minimize "systems" and just have a portable megaphone with fog horn feature.

    Bio-Hzard sign. Who would take the chance. Some hidden bad smelling stuff near by will add to the the desire to not enter this area.

    1) Cheap outdoor solar powered path lights, the kind with a single LED and a rechargeable AA battery that come on after dark, and some infrared LEDs. Replace the visible light LED with the IR LED (just snip the old one out and solder new one in). If the SHTF, place some of the modified solar lights around your perimeter. The light they give off is invisible to the naked eye, but they glow like bright candles to anyone viewing them with night vision goggles or scopes. A deterrent to any bad guys with night vision; you'll be telling them you have NV too and they won't have the advantage at night that they think they have. "Can you see these lights? Yeah, well so can we".

    2) Dakota Alerts. These things are great (but not cheap), and they can be modified to be even more effective.

    3) Stump remover (potassium nitrate) and sugar (I use corn syrup) is an easy and inexpensive way to make ]smoke b0mbs.

    4) For those with long driveways, a few large rocks/small boulders along the sides are decorative now and can be rolled into place to impede vehicles from entering. If you live near public (state/federal) land you can probably get them for free.

    5) Spray paint and old bed sheets to make custom, and very large, signs with the wording of your choice.

    I think some are getting confused between survival gear and survival skills, skills will last a lifetime, gear and "stuff" will not.

    Great list, IBME. I have to question # 3. If you fell a tree across a road isn't that kind of a permanent solution? Like burning a bridge? I mean it will work to keep intruders out, but it keeps you in as well. It would be effective.

    Not sure what type of abode you have but planting bushes beneath windows gives you some space to keep intruders away. Even more effective if the bushes have thorns.

    If you can find them put radioactive stickers on your drums, or anything else that is buried. People generally give that a pretty wide berth.

    Old Geezer: I see you have been to the Vlad Dracul School of Home Security. You won't send a message any louder than that.

    Where I have spent most of my life.........the most important "Skill" is having stuff.

    Example: If it is mid January and 31 degrees below zero, and in the middle of the night the cabin burns down. while I am standing near naked in five feet of snow, I'll need stuff, urgently need stuff, like warm clothing. Now after I have got'into nice warm stuff, I can take a moment to appreciate that I had the skill to have staged "Stuff" for survival outside of the cabin.

    I will put a thief or an attackers head on the top of a fence post. After I have a half a dozen or so posted any others will die because they were just too stupid to live. Being considered crazy mean isn't a bad thing in a rough world.

    Warning signs and then since we are fencing our three acres you will have a pack of dogs, ducks, quinines, and goats to deal with. We have three big border collies that are sort of territorial and loud my Yorkie will go after you though. She thinks she is the BOSS. Strangely all the critters seem to agree with her...

    Originally I had also planned on the the "Head On Pike" deterrent but even thieves and looters have friends and family. I do not want disgruntled folks just looking for a way to get revenge for their lost ones. I decided that having them "Vanish" without a trace is a better idea. Word will get out that my property is like the "Bermuda Triangle", things and people just disappear.

    During severe and widespread SHTF:


    Make your home look like it is already looted, complete with trashed-out front and back yards. Hidden stinkbait buckets in various places outside (to give the impression of death on the premises). This combination may be enough to persuade would-be looters to move onto a better find.



    This may work in a pandemic situation:

    Signs saying something to the effect that disease is on the premises. Hidden stinkbait buckets outside may encourage vivid imaginations… Looters would likely beat a hasty retreat.

    forgot to store a fire extinguisher did you?:p
    lots of "ifs" in your example.
    anyway, "stuff" wears out, is broken or is stolen, skills do not and will last a lifetime.
    what would someone do once their stuff is all gone and they have no skills? probably perish if they cannot survive without stuff.
    "Stuff" is okay for short term events and only short term events, for long term events some serious life enhancing skills are needed otherwise its just delaying the inevitable.
    long term survival must be about what we know and what we can do, not what our bank balance will buy.
    when I read the title of this thread I thought I was in for some interesting reading about life skills but sadly that was not the case.

    6a) Ingredients for homemade tannerite.

    6d0fcb40a86a1263a84ba97a79c6f8d8.jpeg

    Ammonium Nitrate (instant cold packs) and dark aluminum powder (from a pyrotechnics supply store). Instructions online. I've never tried detonating the homemade variety, the cold packs are from the first-aid supplies and the aluminum powder was obtained as one ingredient for a mixture I won't name here. Some basic chemistry knowledge, some "stuff", and a little improvisation. The knowledge alone isn't enough, and the "stuff" alone doesn't help without the knowledge - both are required.
