Rabbits, Rabbits

I have been plagued by rabbits, last year (2019). I had them removed by a certified wildlife person and we used a have-a hart. But, because we had no hard freeze this winter, they are back. I cannot plant anything because they mow everything down. They even ate every giant African marigold (all 48 of them). What can I plant that they won't eat? I have fencing around everything. It is so ugly.

The garden faces south.

increased vole and gopher populations

Can you address this from a SW Oregon stand point? https://ask.extension.org/questions/606969 We're fairly certain we have both voles and gophers, and in recent years way way more than ever before. We don't have a lawn - we are in forested rural, but their numbers have increased a lot; fearing not much we can do, but thought I'd ask. Thank you

Gopher Control

We live by the South Umpqua River and our garden and lawns are well-irrigated. Consequently, we are forever fighting Townsend's pocket gopher. We have tried trapping them and poisoning them but never seem to make much headway. As the proverbial saying goes, you beat them down in one place and their mound pops right back up in another area. Can you please recommend a particular poison that has been tested to be most effective. Thanks, Sherrie Wieland
