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.

How to protect paper birch tree seedlings from deer

We have a 40 acre parcel located @ 25 minutes north of Grand Rapids. The property has a diverse mixture of red/white pines, balsam, aspen, silver maple, and birch. There is a stand of birch that has several very large mature trees, but, we are concerned that due to deer consuming all the seedlings that we will ultimately lose them all. Is there anything that we can do to protect the birch seedlings? Thank you, Desiree

I cannot find an effective way to exterminate voles

The foundation around my house is full of vole holes and voles. I see them scurrying around and have tried everything from environmentally friendly to products with brodifacoum. Currently I have 3 plastic power drill cases with 3 inch holes drilled in each end. I have Tom Cat all season bait chunks with brodifacoum . The chunks I secure with a screw. I fill them every week with three chunks each. I have been doing this for 6 weeks and every week the containers are empty. I bought the 4 lb. pail and have gone though half of it. The product is either ineffective or I have a record population of voles. Any suggestions welcome! Thanks

Scat identification

I was hoping to get this scar on our property identified. It is a wooded property out in the country in Howell and my boots are size 12 for reference. I assume coyote, but was hoping for some confirmation. Thank you in advance!
