    Monkeys are smart.. So most methods work for a while but eventually they figure a way around it.. What I have used that seems fool proof is dry ground up chilli.
    - for feed just mix in feed.. It's also good for poultry.
    - for eggs apply non toxic oil on eggs u don't mind losing and roll in dry chilli powder. Place near existing nest.
    This is a non violent.. But effective way of stopping them..

    Wow. Fortunately, there aren't a lot of monkeys in Kansas, but I will keep these tips in mind... just in case. ;)

    lol I appreciate the thought, but no thanks! Not unless you wanna swap--monkeys for raccoons? I'll even throw in a few opossums to sweeten the deal! lol
