prey animals don’t have souls. the self concept and determination of the SOVL drives life to evolve beyond having sex and then being food.

Hello /an/.
Does anyone have experience with picrel bird repellents? Do they work? How about ultrasonic devices?

I work in a explosives manufacturing plant and few months ago we had a major accident: an entire dynamite mixing house blew up killing two people at site. The exact reason for why this happened remains unknown, but as a precautionary measures we are obliged to introduce technical solutions which will prevent birds from entering the production buildings (apparently on the day of accident a bird was spotted on CCTV inside the said building; no, it didn't shit into the vessel. Actually it seems that bird poo stabilises GTN/EGDN mix since it overperfomed control sample in the Abel's heat test (several minutes) and makes me wondering if uric acid can act as a stabilizer for nitrate esters).

I have a feeling that this solutions are ineffective long term. At the beginning it may work but birds are not that dumb and eventually will learn that there's nothing to worry about and will start to nest in the tunnels leading to the buildings again. Sooner or later some of them will end up inside the mixing house.

Believe it or not grape kool aid actually works as a bird repellent.
>>
>>4310261
No clue what the building looks like, but how easy is it for birds to get into that place? Is it possible to block it off with grates or something similar?
>>4310263
Because it's killed people and he doesn't want to be next, are you dense? I agree that wagie jobs are not worth it to even think about outside of clock hours, but this is a big boy place where thought needs to go into proper protective measures.
>>
>>4310268
It's a mounded building, basically a bunker. There are tunnels leading through the mound inside the actual building. Birds like to nest within the tunnels.

I live in Missouri and I have these all over my garage, a couple in my basement and they've been seen in my bathroom and living room recently.

I caught two, possibly a male and female.

Question is how do I make money with themb? Are there hobbyists who want them?

First thing is start a big cricket colony to support your spider breeding initiative. Then what you’re gonna want to do is ditch the recluse and get yourself a couple breeding pairs of some actually valuable spiders
>>
>>4306415
You could possibly sell them here and there but unfortunately araneomorphs are not all that popular to keep, especially ones that aren't jumping spiders or huntsman and also have a potentially medically significant bite. Your best bet would probably be to hit up arachnoboards and also consider getting into some more popular species (usually tarantulas) like >>4309134 suggested if you want to stick with breeding spiders
>>
>>4306850
good idea
then they can become an invasive species

The size of the animal is irrelevant maybe even a detriment at very large sizes. What matters is the strength of its bones you only need to hit the same spot a few times and then the bones will collapse into the lungs and it will die while you simply stand back

That is one deep youtube video rabbit hole. A lot of people into pore-declogging videos. The hot tip is to bathe them beforehand so the wax is softer.

given the swelling, probably quite a bit yeah. I imagine that even if they were to clear the poor little fucker out it would still take months of treatment for what would basically be an open wound while the pores gradually return to their normal size. just an absolute disaster.
