Guys, I have an idea: more rats
Train psychopathic cannibal rats then release them on ever block.
i like that this is utterly insane but also not far fetched at all
There's only one sane solution : release one ferret for every ten rats in the city
I have mice in my house. It's 400 years old so there's no realistic way to seal every entrance. All food is locked away in cupboards, I put traps down, I've sprayed peppermint oil over every route in and out of the kitchen, I've got a electronic device that emits a loud high pitch noise, I've got 2 dogs, I spread thorny branches all around the perimeter of the house. There's no nests inside, I never see any mice and never find any faeces. Last time I even caught a mouse was months ago. And STILL they come in and chew up paper, plastic bags and the plaster off the walls. Last night the bastards started chewing through an electrical cable. Is there any other option other than to call the exterminators and holocaust the cunts. I'd really rather they fuck off back to the fields but I'm running out of patience.
Any advice lads?
>Fell for the high pitch noise scam
I sure did, all it's achieved is annoying the fuck out of me and seems to have set the chewing into overdrive.
there's a guy in the village who keeps ferrets, maybe I'll ask him to borrow one. I'd just be scared of losing it in the walls. The heat thing doesn't sound right though, I thought the heat is what was attracting them inside the house. Fuckit it I'll give it a shot too. Thanks anons
Temperatures above 104 can be fatal and to kill bed bugs it takes 113 degrees for 90 minutes.
Get a ratting weasel and or overheat the house like they do with bed bug infestations.
>no realistic way to seal every entrance
So seal off as many as you can; researching tips for making your home more energy efficient will help with ideas. One easy spot that might be overlooked is the holes where plumbing pipes go through your walls. Loose baseboards along the walls are another.
>away in cupboards
Put anything edible in airtight sealed containers or inside your fridge/freezer. Stuff like flour isn’t bothered by being frozen.
>I spread thorny branches all around the perimeter of the house
Get rid of this, it is just an attractive shelter for mice. Imagine you are clearing out a firebreak and clean out or mow short anything on the ground within about a meter of the house. Anything that provides cover for sneaky critters.
It's been said before that the foundation of your house should only be surrounded by rocks, preferably over a weed barrier, small enough not to create hiding spaces but too big to burrow into. It helps water drainage and prevents pests from living right against your walls (and eventually crawling up through siding and chewing through them). The space around your house should be mowed grass or absolutely fucking nothing, as long as it's short.
feral cat colonies 🙂
just spay/neuter a bunch of them and let them do what they do best (kill everything)
We should give up and let the rats take over
Allow the nazi's to do their thing.
It's litterally on the sea coast. I don't think you can get any more seagulls.
close the banks
Build a two story wooden house on the city outskirts and put a huge painted sign in front of it that says "FREE CHEESE" and then once all of the rats are inside the house blow it up with TNT
An actual Holocaust.
Pupm toxic gas into the sewer system
How can Paris deal with its rat problem?
Stop shitting and pissing all over the subways and streets would be a starting point.
the rats shall inherit the earth
How about a new type of rat?
It's not a problem, it's an opportunity.
what do they eat?
If they make usery illegal, they'll leave of their own volition.
Give them to me
just let them have it
Bankrupt NYC's finance industry
>Implying NYC won't be bankrupt in a year or two
I'd start working on its human infestation first. The rats will leave if the humans are removed.
dirty bomb in minecraft
Deal with its food storage, garbage, and sewage problems. You can’t support a large rat population without anything they can eat.
These posters get it.
Gas them in the oven
Theres probably millions of rats there, you cant possibly catch and gas enough before the ones left breed the numbers back up. The math just doesnt allow it.
Hire a bunch of professional mustelids
It's their city now.
With help from the rat whisperer
banker classicide will get a lot of them
The rats are too large, the cats don't mess with them. look it up on yt
God forbid it mutates
breed bigger cats
Maine coon X serval
I wonder how big domestic cats can become without crippling them like it does with humans with gigantism.
A Maine coon X serval would be the biggest breed automatically. And because you hybridized it with wild stock it's going to take a while to create any bad genetic defects. Unless the breeder is a inbreeding idiot that is.
The larger the predator, the larger its prey, but also, the fewer risks it takes. It will require more energy to live and sustain injuries more easily over its larger surface area, and overheat more easily with exertion. And... the smarter it is, all other things being equal.
If you made cats bigger expecting them to finally hunt rats and do more about mice than just scare them temporarily, they would use their size and slight intelligence boost to conserve energy going for much easier prey that required some more intelligence to successfully hunt, such as smaller domestic cats, small dogs, and pigeons, and rats would just be an incidental dietary choice rather than their preference. By the time you made cats about dog sized, their meals of choice would be small human children and non-aggressive pet dogs because they are docile, trusting, don't fight back until it's too late, and can't really do any damage.
A serval x Maine coon probably wouldn't hunt other cats. And the only dogs they'd be able to after in NYC would be strays.
If a good breeder would to keep this variant of savannah cat docile it shouldn't be a problem.
Leopards eat cheetahs, smaller lions, and other leopards
I wouldn't be so certain. A better hunter is a better hunter.
I want to test this hypothesis with servalxMainecoons.

No point wasting the bullets on rats

flood the streets, replace the cars with gondolas, unleash gigantic crocodilians to balance out society
Take all the men under 30 out of the city.

Red Dead Redemption has gotten me spooked of these.
living in rural areas has me spooked of 'em. haven't had coyotes in a while but this winter a pack moved into the forest behind my place. they scream and laugh all night and i'm pretty sure they got the neighborhood cat who used to come visit me.
brave little fuckers they'll just come into town to prowl.
Do they actually attack humans and horses? They seem way too small to do so.
Typically only very small children or Canadian pop singers
Never heard of it happening, but know a horse that got injured and had to be euthanized because it spooked when the coyotes were calling around breeding season and got tangled in a fence.
They kill stupid/trusting dogs reasonably often and cats whenever they can catch them away from the house. I know a retired farmer who had Coyotes raiding the old barns for cats, feet from his house.
horses are pretty fucking dangerous, it would take like 8 coyotes to take down a full grown horse, and few of them would die too
I mean they've become less of a problem when I've turned aim-assist on. But its hard to tell in the heat of the moment if they are coyotes or wolves, and then you got those fucking mountain lions that will one-shot you.
I used to get coyotes in my yard all the time, they really just kept to themselves and yelled at night
sometimes I'd hear a rabbit screaming and there'd be lost cat signs, but that's it
It gets too cold over the winter for them to survive, that only works in Mediterranean cities like Istanbul
cats cant catch rats
they're too big and vicious
cats are good for mice and bugs
for rats you need to bring in the professionals
terriers were originally bred as rat catchers
True, but you can't have stray dogs in the city streets the same way you can cats. Even a small dog like a terrier is liable to bite some kid, cats are a little more skittish
A small terrier will do about as much damage as an angry feral cat, although cat scratches and bites are more likely to result in hospitalization, while dog bites are 80% nothing, 18% bandaids, 2% pitbulls
Third worlders have packs of tiny dogs running around without issue. Natural selection means the human aggressive ones get punted ASAP - which is why cats are less bold with humans while still being able to hunt.
Some good qualities of the dog have been lost due to indoor doggayry. There are dogs that can still be trusted and there always will be, but we can't reach 100% without letting them all loose and punting the bad ones. The only reason we don't is because their natural food supply is stuff we tend to keep as livestock or stock as game animals for fags too lazy to farm.
cats are useless to catch animals on command, they get distracted and start playing around, nyc needs a battalion of terrier dogs
