Felaine, I think that is an excellent idea. Except, it was the Turks who slaughtered the Armenians, wasn't it? Maybe not such a good idea.

I just had a VERY evil thought about a theif repellant...it's sick, so you can stop reading here......

These women are Armenian, right?  Okay.  What if I print a couple hundred TURKISH flags, and scatter them around the base of the tree?  EH?

I'm getting my witchy evil back!  YAYYYYYY!!!!

Chris, sorry to learn of your migraine. Hope it goes soon.

Oh, there's just one central police station...no neighborhood cop shop.

I told the police and the non-lingual thieves that if I EVER see them on our property again, for any reason, I'm calling the cops, and filing charges against them.  I don't care if they're trying to tell me the effing garage is on fire; I never want to see or hear them again. I'm also going to ask our gardener (all he does is mow the lawn and rake up the leaves), to let the avocado leaves stay where they are for a month or so....so that I can HEAR anyone walking around under that tree.

If the house burns down, I'm insured.  If those idiot women trip on a tree root, or fall into a cactus patch (our patio is a cactus and rock "garden."....and a cat cemetery.), I have minimum liability, and if they get injured during illegal trespass, it's THEIR fault.  NOT mine.

Oh yes, and Carl's air horn.

Forgot to add...the scar on my back is from the laminectomy & fusion I had in '09....parathyroidectomy, carpal tunnel reduction, and two (benign) tumor removals, one below my left knee, and the other beside my right eye.  (I have to do a "Mr. Spock, eyebrow on 'Stun' " for that one to be visible...I had a plastic surgeon do that one.  Tee-hee.)

Felaine, those avocados thieves need to learn. Let us think. What are some options: 

Call the police and press charges (I like this one best)

Put a sign on the tree, "Trespassers Prosecuted!" 

Get one of those water shooting toys that you can pump up really hard, and squirt them when you see them picking. 

Spray the tree with itching powder. 

Talk to your city council or mayor.

Persuade the city management to put in a neighborhood food forest with avocados growing for public picking. 

Create a food forest with neighbors and city involvement using Permaculture concepts. 

Ask neighbors to keep an eye open for trespassers and give them produce as an incentive. 

If you have a Neighborhood Cop Shop, as we do in Spokane, get acquainted with them on a first name basis. Take them avocados or whatever nice produce you have. 

Find out what language they speak and put up "No Trespassing" signs in their language.

On ThanksTaking Day, the "heart patient" was the one who walked away with about 10 lbs of 'cados in a plastic bag.  Some heart surgery...Hah!  Her friend had the fruit-picker and another (empty) bag.

Sew ROOOOOD!

I suspected that they knew it was wrong, and using the language barrier as an excuse.  The whining one indicates they think they are entitled to your fruit.
