In Washington, people steal the honey! Alright, a one time event (well I hope so for the owner's sake!) But I read about this in the news: http://www.whidbeyexaminer.com/main.asp?SectionID=1&SubSectionID=1&ArticleID=4421
I have a neighbor who has signs made out of the same materials as speed limit signs that say : Stay Safe Stay Alive Stay Out
I like them, they really look professional and make one think.... but I haven't been able to find who makes them. He got them at a garage sale. They look like they were pretty expensive originally.
One thing to keep in mind about posting "No trespassing" signs is that they are sort of vague legally.
came across this today via a facebook friend.
could be an effective solution!

It is my understanding that you never ever have to let an assessor onto your property for any reason and they cannot even get a court order to get onto it without your permission. I understand that a building inspector can get a court order if something you are doing is hazardous to someone off of your property.
I have the following sign posted in lots of locations on my property. If someone violates it you can take them to small claims court and collect from them personally - get their name and invoice them. This includes government employees on a personal level since they decided to act illegally and elected to enter your property even though they knew there was a land use fee. The word "Land" is the key and I find that even Sheriff's do not want to admit that they read the sign, so to me that is an indication that it truly does have power.
If for some reason the above is unavailable here is one on my forum page also
Download the image, print it and laminate it. Post it around the perimeter of your property.

No guarantees as so many things are done illegally by "authorities" under color of law, but if you don't know your rights it is impossible to defend yourself. If you do it may or may not be a little easier. I find it is beneficial to make them think I am crazy...
Here is the link to the start of my story and various references to my craziness throughout...
Sorry the jerks are giving you such a bad time. What area are you in - general area is fine? Just interested.

Regarding aggressive dogs. This only works if your property is large and your dog understands where his territory ends. My younger siblings were unable to go to school down a certain road because of the neighbors aggressive dog. I killed that dog. With the help of a group of friends I also drove another family from the neighborhood with a combination of vandalism and late-night noise directed at their home. All of this was in retribution for a dog bite received on the side of a public road.
Maybe when there is no "resource guarding" the valuables aren't quite as exciting to steal?
Do they have the drug problems that we have in the USA? Most of my local thieves are drug addicts.....
Bad luck getting robbed but don't get discouraged with hunters. Go out meet them say hello ask what they are hunting and whatever it is, they can find it over in your drug dealers land next door. Then when they go out of sight rob their truck when they come back blame it on the drug dealer problem solved. They won't come back.
I found this recommendation on line that I really like, but am clueless as to whether or not it would work: http://www.landrights.com/trespassing_intro.htm

Every year I post the property and every year I return to find the signs ripped down..yesterday even the plank the sign was painted on had disappeared. Next year willows go in wherever there is enough moisture to support them and a coppiced fence is on the agenda, sea buckthorn and russion olive shrubs all over planted with hops and wild cucumber vines everywhere. If I had access to poison oak......!! The vines wont do more than slow them down but I'm hoping they might be enough to hold them off until the shrubs get tall enough to be a significant barrier.
