How to handle a peeping tom?

This neighborhood kid is sniffing around one of my girls. Every time I catch wind of him outside a certain window, he's gone by the time I can get there.

Other than the requisite Claymore under the window, what are some options y'all can come up with?

Agreed. Don't wait till they get into teenagehood to fix it.

Calling the cops is already an option. In fact, the boy's mother told us to do it.

But this is Foo. I want Fooish ideas... like electrifying the window or perhaps a tiger trap (punji sticks and all).

I need the humor or I'll simply bury the punk- and his mom would be grateful.

Accurately shot up targets taped to the window.

I did that and it worked for me.

Leave a copy of Playboy on the ground near the window.

On top of a bear trap.

With a tripwire that sets off a shotgun loaded with salt.

leave a bunch of birdlime near the windows.

alternatively, setup a good old net trap.

Walk around in your bare chest and tighty whities with the curtains a tad open. When he comes around wave at him, wink and dance like a smooooooth operator while licking your top lip and tweaking your own nips all seductively.

A video camera inside and then threaten to send it to his parents or post it on facebook.
Humiliation can be one hell of a motivator.

I had a kid that insisted on driving his car through my front garden. He only did it at about 3:00 am after a night of partying. I had only heard who it from other schoolmates of his but never actually caught him. I called the police to report it but they did nothing. I finally placed a 3300 lb stone in the garden and surrounded with new shrubs. We caught him!

I don't recommend taking the law into your own hands but creative landscaping worked for me. Maybe plant holly or some prickly bush under the window.

Poison ivy, Pyracantha, and stinging nettles.

Stake out his house, snatch him when he comes outside, duct tape his mouth shut and toss him in the trunk. Drive him to a secluded place, strip him naked, write "sexual predator" on his forehead with a Sharpie and let him walk home.

Dig a 2 foot deep hole outside her window, line it with plastic and fill it with water (or urine) cover with leaves.

When he comes around, release the pitbulls. I used to have a very friendly pitbull but he would scare the be-jebus out of most people.

Pour a bunch of green permanent dye on the lawn in front of the windows. It'll make it easier for the cops to identify him later.

These are the types of answers I was looking for!

On a more serious note, this is gonna be a tricky one. The kid in question is 16, and my 13 yr old is his current obsession. She's been told not to associate with him and he's been told not to come around. She may or may not be aware of the fact that this punk has sexually assaulted his own younger sister in the past. His mother is the one who told his to call the cops if he came around and warned us that he will more than likely stalk the girl.

I would just send her back to her father, but he sent her out here as a last ditch effort to keep her out of juvenile hall...

I like it! But the house is a rental, so I don't want to any "structural modifications".
