Scat pic

Hi, just wondering if you think this is bear scat... (I did a little googling and that’s my guess) Also, wish I had laid down a quarter or something for size reference — the scat was human shaped and large.

Elusive Moles

This is my first flower garden. The soil is fantastic, at least the moles think so. The flowers like the soil, as well, until the mole tunnels under them. Then they up and die. We had 2 mole companies out here and they cannot catch any. What am I to do?? Thank you so much.

Why are so many skunks running around my neighborhood? Is there anything I can do to get rid of them? One sprayed my dog in broad daylight in my yard!

Dead wood rats

Hello, We're in South Benton County and have a wood rat population on our property. In the last 2 weeks, we've found 4 dead wood rats. There are no apparent signs of physical damage or evidence of any struggle. We do have a neighbor that shares a fence with us about 200 ft from our house who also had some wood rat issues. Both of us have dogs, so we don't use poison as rodent control. What signs could we look for to get an idea of the cause of death? We're concerned for the safety of our pets if they eat a poisoned rat carcass.

Keeping Deer off Young Fruit Trees

Hi I live in a rural area and I'm looking for any natural way to repel deer or conceal the tree from their noses until it has a chance to root. They've destroyed or rendered ineffective every type of non-permanent barrier we've ever erected. Short of a 6' chain link fence is there any way to fool those crafty creatures?

Racoon problem

I have a racoon that has decided to make a nest in my attic that is inaccessible so the racoon can not be removed. An animal control company has suggested to let the animal leave on its own and then fix the roof. I forgot to mention that the racoon dug and or chewed through my roof. But will not the animal return the following year to raise another litter so I will have the same problem again. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
