We have them everywhere!!! I assume they are fruit flies...tiny,black with wings, very quick and very loud when they whizz past my ear!!! I am putting vinegar,bicarb, etc down the drains and my compost toilet (the urine part) just in case they are hiding in there. Do they lay eggs in damp spots like under the sink where pipes meet??? I'm rnning out of ideas where they could be bt want to get rid!! All my fruit is in the fridge and I have traps around the kitchen.
Any advice gratefully received.

Correct me if I'm wrong) they are trained- to view the livestock as their family, no us humans, and that's what causes problems like in the story I posted. If that training was modified to them being family to ALL of us, and not just the livestock, would they be safer?
We also don't have that much money, and I'm going to assume that feeding a very large breed like a livestock guardian dog would cost quite a bit of money...
What about breeds of dogs trained to be "shepherds," like Australian shepherds? Their tendency seems to be to herd everything, rather than attack it. I can imagine them stressing out ducks by herding them constantly, though...

You mean the Kickstarter update #17 Paul?
Look at raven's post here: https://permies.com/t/144694/greenhouse-kickstarter-support-forum#1131236
That is the offiial invitation to that forum. The reason why that is so important is that if your kickstarter email address is not found on permies, then it sends you a slightly different email - with instructions on a couple of ways to mend the issue, including adding your kickstarter email address to your already existing permies account.

Not a big fan of the cbook format as it loads slowly, and pages have to reload if you're going back and forth. Much prefer pdf formats, and I wish you'd go back to them.
