Animals: Deer, Rodents, and more

In 2015, we created a garden guide to Non-Insect Pests. This guide includes both methods and products to address animal pests in the garden.    Always choose the options in the green category!  Below this guide you will find a fact sheet on Rats, and one on Mice specifically.  

If squirrels are a problem, click here for a great fact sheet from the National Center for Appropriate Technology.
