Is there a diy that will keep rodents out of your fruit trees?

We have two small apple trees and a peach but every year the rats come and eat them 😢

    Wrap the bottom of your tree with aluminum foil to keep them from climbing them.

    Our friend collects the clear plastic clamshell containers that some produce and bakery items come in and as soon as fruit appears she protects each fruit in a clamshell. She also uses foil or something around the base.

    Spread Moth balls around trees. Don't put them to close to the trunk. I've done this and it works like a charm. Just remember to replace Moth balls after rain storms
