How do I keep people from stealing my lychees?
Hi, I'm new here and need some help. Does anyone have some advice on how I can deter people from stealing my lychees? They come at all times of the day and night (2am!) and annoy my dogs, which in turn, bothers me and my neighbors. They've even broken 4 foot branches off the tree, taken the fruit, and left me to clean up the mess. I know many people love them, I do too, but I don't grow them so some stranger can steal my efforts and damage my beloved tree. I caught a woman today who told me she "thought she could have some."
I am just about at my wit's end. I'm almost tempted to strip the tree even though only a few fruit are ripe.
Thanks in advance for your replies. BTW, this isn't a sales solicitation :)
