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.

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
