These little dudes are literally the only pest control I have, and the Japanese Hornets have started appearing in my region.
Am I fucked?
Are the flytraps fucked?
Hey /plant/, I wish to one day become self sufficient with growing my own food and I am looking for literature for complete noobs to have a fundamental understanding of the science of growing, the different methods, pros and cons ect so I can have a framework and focus on what I need to learn via practical application.

Thank you in advance.

The cat and cucumbers are natural enemies and its been that way for eons ever since the cucumbers nearly hunted all felines to extinction.
>every nice guy don't get laid, making them feel a reason to be ashamed
You have now proved beyond any shadow of a doubt that you are an incel.
Why are people having elementary school level insult exchanges in a board about how animals are neat (rhetorical, redeem yourself by posting more cats and cucumbers or im going to cry)

Bro do you know anything about how nature works?

BISMILLAH I hate these things, I can’t deal with them
Is this an accurate map for them?

I adopted a mature age foster dog and 3 years later she has become increasingly destructive causing thousands in damage.
This is the second time I have considered killing my dog but the destruction is infrequent and severe.

Give me some links and information so that I dont need to end the life of the only thing on this earth that stops me from being a completly emotionless human.
I love my bella and if I have to end her life I lose the only thing I feel about. But she has causes literally tens of thousands worth of damage.
What do.
4 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Chain her up somewhere.
Please don't kill your dog.
Even if you can't handle the dog, why would you kill it instead of giving it up to someone else or the pound?

Are you a psycho?
I will try harder
>tens of thousands worth of damage
How is that even possible, did she maul award winning kois?

Do you think anyone would care about animals if they were all ugly? Not "eww spider" ugly, but actually vomit-inducingly disgusting to look at. Do you think there would be pets? Shelters? Animal rights activists? Animal rights? Vegans?

i like ugly animals like toads
yes. after all, we're forced to support other races in our country or for whatever reason, we're the bad guys. it's no different.

How about Bobbit worms?

>dog just got hospitalized for parvo even though all of his shots and vaccines are up to date
>vet said there's still a significant chance that a dog can get parvo and die even if its vaccinated and the shots just minimize the chance
why is this allowed and why did no one ever warn me about this
True for most vaccines. In the end it only helps the body to attack early but it needs to fight its own battle.
I'm sorry anon.

I had a hamster that had the exact same response to the "make a fist" technique. Seeing the fist would drive it into a murderous rage.
Kek. In hindsight the fist technique sounds kinda dumb, but just dumb enough that it might paradoxically work. Maybe it depends on the animal having a specific reason for its aggression or something.

How can I get my family to get rid of their pet bunny?

When they first got it, my sis and bro were on top of cleaning its waste drawer every 2 days, and we had it caged in our dining room area every day with regular playtime.

My brother dropped off quick, but my sister was more of a slow quitter.
Fast forward 3-4 years the bunny sits caged in the laundry room.

I don't even know when they feed it, but its bowl is always empty and mountain of shit is endlessly piled and spread. Papers and food packages are torn up nearby. At least the water is always full.

When they feel like letting the bun stretch its legs, they pop open the cage door and just leave it at that for the day.

Cute thing deserves better. Not to live in it's own shit, and especially not caged up 99% of the week.

Thank you guys for all your responses.

No animal should live like this. I know because I have a dog and it NEEDS excercise everyday. Why wouldn't a bunny?

Gonna see if I can find a shelter for it.
Fucker needs its nails cut too.
People are constantly walking through the yard so it's not easy for any predators to come in. There was a faggot outdoor cat that started bothering us but we successfully chased it away.
Please OP do the right thing. You are this thing's only chance of not living in misery every minute of its terrible existence.
>that shit their cages full in a day
That's the reason you only use the cage as a toilet and let the buns run around. You don't keep cats in their litterbox either.
Literally just get a bigger cage for guinea pigs. My guinea pigs live in a coroplast enclosure thats more than twice the size of OP's bunny cage, I can easily go a week without cleaning it or several if I spot clean their food area which is where most of the soiling takes place.

It's a butterfly called Doxocopa laurentia.
Butterflys dont have pigmentation, their wings are mechanical colorful,... As in they have little scales that are so far apart as to reflect only certain light wavelengths, aka colors
