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

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.

Mystery scat

I found this in the woods in Nova Scotia, on a walking trail. It makes me worry that it is from a bear something dangerous. The straw beside it is the length of my iPhone 6s. It was August 10

Scat identification

I think this is racoons scat but could it be fox or skunk?

Skunks

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.
