I just want to grow some flowers but every time I put out planters, raccoons dig them up. I got one that goes on my deck railing and just put potting soil in it, no seeds, and there were no bugs in it, it still got dug through last night.

How can I stop them? I have some cayenne powder, I'm thinking maybe mix that in with the soil. I can't really kill them since they come when I'm asleep. I already have motion lights but they aren't bothered by them at all.

I've seen people mention chicken wire, is that effective for raccoons? I bet they could reach through it.

Here's jimson weed for reference. I'm not sure how heat stable the active alkaloids are, but it may also be possible to boil a slurry down into a highly potent concentrate to inject into meat or hotdogs.

Be prepared for raccoons smoking invisible cigarettes and having conversations with invisible raccoons.
raccoons disapprove of your gay-ass flowers. get better plants
Just put the pots in one of those garbage cages specifically meant to keep vermin out of the trash until the plants are big enough they won't be bothered

Or grow tthem indoors for a few months

Are cpds a meme or actually fun fish? Adding a dither (or two) to 20L with male betta and ~12 corys of two different breeds, looking at them, ember tetras, neon dwarf rainbowfish, or other generic danios
personally i dont like them, maybe you just need a huge shoal but my 8 were always very shy and placid. I prefer chaostank with livebearers
Yeah I'd rather put platys in there but they're notorious fin nippers and the betta is a crowntail so easy, slow target. I have endler's in another tank so would prefer a different fish. If the betta wasn't there I'd go with a mix of emerald and celestial danios, some gold white clouds, and platys, plus the corys, but wcmms want it too cold for bettas
white clouds are fine in the low to mid 70s which is what i've always kept my betta at. i think people generally have a hardon for heat because breeders like heat because fish get higher metabolisms and grow faster at higher temps. high temp can help with some cancers but make others worse like algae. I've kept them together before just fine.

Neon tetras seem like they're the standard betta dither so those work too. imo you don't want something too active with bettas and other anabantids. but from my experience with them honestly i think they're better off alone. Medaka could also be worth a try, not sure if they'd get nippy, mine haven't been.

Also unrelated but I'm strongly tempted to try putting a female molly in an unheated tank with my other poeciliids. People told me GUPPIES NEED TO BE THE HOLY 72-82 DEGREES ALL FISH NEED TO BE HEATED but I threw some assorted fancy guppies in there with my assorted endlers in a tank that ranges 66-72 and they seem to be doing just fine.

But I want to try at least. They're trying to communicate with me so I should put in some effort too.

Because americans are fat.
no venomous snake could take any adult human in a fight, period. The most potent venom takes several minutes to incapacitate - the snake always dies. The human might die later, but the snake's long dead by then.
The only snakes that are tough enough to survive a human armed with at least hiking boots are the huge constrictors.
Not in my state apparently.
Unironically this is why commies hate rich people. They are envious of their wealth, if even subconsciously. Not like they'll ever become rich though.

All this being said, the only people I hate are those that hate me and my people, which is a bit of a paradox, and leads me to becoming myself again.
I have transcended the cycle.

Okay, nevermind lol

Welwitschia actually is grass-like in many aspects, down to how they deal with herbivores and water loss. Guess you just have to spam Welwischia-like things everywhere, maybe with less dumb leaves.

I wish I could breed a line of hyperaggressive Wolverine rats with reinforced skeletons and claws so that I can sell them to snakefaggots and giggle when I hear about their shitty worms being eviscerated
Spaying can help prevent tumors in female rats, it reduces their hormone levels and the risk of mammary tumors. In addition to pregnancies.

Spaying seems invasive and expensive, but it's probably cheaper in the long run than neutering every male, or dealing with tumors in the females. If I were trying to keep a female in a mostly male group I'd just get a vet to pop her open, scoop out her parts and be done with it.

Neutering is a very safe procedure in rats, they just snip and stitch and they're good. Spaying carries a bigger risk due to having to open their bellies up, but if you take the right precautions you can keep a rat from chewing her stiches and spilling her guts before she heals.

If you're keeping unfixed males and females together you'd just have to keep them in two seperate groups with seperate free roam times. And making sure they dont try fucking through the cage bars.

Don't know about the baby rat.
I'm sorry, bros. They both look like very cute and good rats.
