    Default Prank door knocking, wwyd?

    So the past few days I've had a bout of prank door knockers, yesterday I caught them hiding behind a retaining wall at the front of our house and saw a few of their buddies across the road at the park, i yelled at them told them to go home or if they were bored they could always do some weeding for me, they ran off crying! Today I had to put pants on and by that time they were gone.

    How would you handle this issue?

    I'd set some sort of nasty little trap up for them
    Do any of your neighbours or friends have a big scary dog you could tie up out the front?

    Nah and they would see the dog a mile off unfortunately. I'm bummed hubby isn't home so one of us can keep watch and catch them in the act and do what B&B said.

    I'm pretty big and scary haha I actually thought I gave them a fright yesterday given the tears that were bawled as they ran off but obviously they are taking turns or they are enjoying the attention. I'd try ignoring them but I know they will only go somewhere else

    Id say just ignore them. They'll get bored and move on. Unless they are damaging your property, I wouldnt bother. It sounds like kids being kids.
