    My lover has a cottage on an island.
    Minks have manged to swim over to it in the recent years
    they dig holes into the underboards of the little cottage and bring their fish there.
    In the summer when we go there to chill, it stinks of fish.
    Her father has hired some pros to pullup all the floorboards & close all the holes.(rhis costs alot of money)
    They desire to exterminate all the minks on the island.

    I agree the smell is terrible.
    The damage they do to the cottage is bad.
    but they are not pests, and im certain if you exterminate them , they are sure to come back at some point.

    Making fur coats is not cool nowadays but maybe one of you have experience in these matters and have a solution which does not require extermination?
    are they now not part of the ecosystem?

    please advize

    Keep plugging the holes that they make and use plenty of air freshener.

    People will say 'If it was a rat problem, you'd exterminate them without a second thought'. I disagree.

    But then, I'm a bleeding heart liberal
    I plan on beating him to death with his kids. I'll use them as a bludgeon on his face. -

    Kill them.

    Eat the meat.

    Sell the pelts.

    Killing animals is cool, so long as it's for food and clothing and not just for fun.

    remember i could easily spend an hour on google actually finding info on Mink behaviour, but instead i put my trust in you to find a realistic solution.

    @manks - this has been the unfruitfull mthod of the last few years.

    I have considered making cage traps to catch them and them bring them to the mainland (or sell for prostitution)
    also considered making a divert cottage so they put all their catches there instead

    please advize l33t hunters and zoolologists

    Please, but I'd need a few to make a decent meal out of it.

    That's a bit of a harsh photo for the hard of keeping crisps down.
