Crayfish/shtakuza/jamboree/crawdaddys.

Post by Who2 »

I thank DSaxalby for bringing me 2 crayfish traps last week. My first was stolen and another last night.
So this time I catch the kleftie before he steals my 3rd trap.
So how to trap a trap kleftie ?.
Now, they were attached on a long chain and padlocked to a bamboo divan on my corniche.
I could sneak an electrical feed down there and electrocute him.
But first I shall use late night cat-gut 'trip wires so they tumble down my steps into the fedlyha canal. {to be chewed upon by warrens] inshaala!
Mind you, it could be a kid but I doubt it. I was catching 12 everyday and have over a 100 in my breeding tank.
One climbed out and bit me on my toe when I was opening the gate barefooted last night for William the beer,
I 'jumped and shouted he 'laughed, and me thinking it was a scorpion until the Auto flood lights came on.

And no doubt due to your hard work and their thieving ways, a live crayfish shop will soon be opening in Luxor. I have friends coming out in two weeks if you would like to have some more delivered to them.

Cat gut trip wires, I like that.. :up
1 at full tension, and one attached to a couple of old lanterns or pans.
Clefty trips up into the canal, as the pans come crashing down, the noise alerts everyone around, as one ashamed clefty rises out of the canal,
he has his retinas burned out by a security light.. Priceless.. :cool:

The only good thing about Rambo were his man traps. Now that's a man that could deliver the clefty's in pieces of eight. :vs

It seems that they are selling live crayfish in Alex and they are pulling tonnes of them daily out the Nile and using them as fertiliser not bad going since they only arrived in the Nile in 2008:

So its time they forgot about tourism and concentrated upon another form of income...:cool:

Last night three of us including the chef of all BBQ's inaugurated my 'pig-roast with a selections of home-made sausages, marinaded chops and a selection of shish kebabs.
We cooked and we drank to a successful try out for our new Hawaiian BBQ™
Now all we have to do next is figure out the gearings and motor for the rotisserie for the 6 hour pig fest, not forgetting the clam-bakes...mmm...:cool:

Today I cleaned out the holding pond and noticed the 'shtakuza have been eating all my lily stems. It's a quandary.
Lily's or lobsta ?
Learning about cray fish, they like individual homes and to that end I have been busily cutting old wine bottle necks and have built an apartment block for them.
Busy old Monday morning.....:cool:

Building an apartment block for the crayfish.. That's very kind of you Doctor. :up
Will they be fully furnished ?


I was about to put a load of vegetable peelings into my compost bin last night,
when I opened the lid, the ants that reside in there had built a mini Metropolis out of the compost they have created.

Not exactly what I saw, but you get the jist... :cg

Vegetable peelings carefully scattered around the suburbs of mini metropolis... :cool:

Who2, you state that they only entered the Niles waters in 2008, I would be interested to know how and from where. :up

By Accident, ( as some may say ), "Typical Egyptian"... ;)

http://www.egyptindependent.com/news/cr ... g-industry

"During the 1980s, an Egyptian shrimp farmer imported what he thought were the larvae of US freshwater shrimp. After growing the new species in his fish farm, however, he discovered that instead of shrimp, the larvae had developed into sharp-clawed crayfish called Procambarus clarkii that systematically destroyed his nets.

Disappointed and angry at the nuisance caused by the crayfish, he got rid of them by throwing them in the Nile. Not only did the crayfish manage to survive in this new environment, they literally thrived, multiplying to the extent that they are now found in abundance all along the Nile, in its networks of canals and even in rice plantations". etc..... :cg


Doctor, you may want to read this section... :tk

"The fishermen were mostly complaining that the crayfish had a penchant for clawing into their nets and that they destroyed the irrigation systems with their burrowing behavior during the hatching season.

It is a problem, because they dig up to one-meter deep burrows all along the irrigation channels that weaken the soil, which eventually breaks," Khalil explains".

Thanks BM. I have the links on Who2's post but they don't work for me. Everything else is working OK. I'll be glad when my new comp. comes over from the UK in two weeks. Then this one will join his crayfish in the Nile!

Today I went down to the canal to empty my crayfish trap and the forth has been stolen plus a 2" padlock & 4ft of S Steel chain plus the trap.
Iv'e set up a miniature radio camera but it's only daylight so I'm set but, 'doubtful ready to catch my crayfish trap thief.
Iv'e set up a false looking 'trap to trap the thief but feel I need more craft, actually I'm quite enjoying it, the idea of cracking somebody four times over their head with my nunchaku's for four traps, the thief has no idea how much I'm enjoying this, it's a perversion I suppose, to much time on my hands....:cool:

I'm curious :tk :tk :tk Scorpio is a water sign so they say, so can Scorpions hold their breath ?

Fill the crayfish trap with Scorpions. . . :cg


Won't a Passive Infra Red activated Security light do the trick Doctor, or is there too much interference with other passing wildlife ?
