Set and keep setting mouse traps. Wire them to a fence or they walk off. I like Jaws, as they can be left out year round. Mark the locations with bright tape on the fence. Inverted plastic pots over them protect the birds and your toes. In windy areas you might want wires on the pots, too. Hang or clip them higher on fence in growing season for ease in mowing. You mostly can catch mice and voles outside only in the fall.
Drain hoses. They can be left in place, but walk any water out of them. Unscrew from faucet.
Paint or wrap tree trunks to prevent “southwest injury.”
Spray deer and rabbit spray for a foot or two above where spiral guards or hardware cloth ends, in case of deep drifts over winter.
Run gas out of tillers, mowers. Mothballs also help repel mice, we were told.
Put enclosure of 6’ tall woven wire fence around each tree, if not already in place or orchard fenced.
Gather any fallen fruit that was missed.
Use lots of chicken wire on bushes and baby trees.
Don’t get carried away ordering stuff.
Clean bird houses, scrub and pack away hummingbird feeders, yellow jacket traps.
Don’t pick your apples too early.
Take down and store woven electric fence in mouse-proof location. Put away solar chargers, batteries.
Poke currant and gooseberry cuttings into the ground.
Be sure any grafts are securely labeled. Back it up with a chart.
Eat lots of apple crisp and cherry pie.
