Something is eating fruit
Little navel orange tree planted one year. It has a lot of blooms and little oranges, but something keeps eating every orange leaving just a stem. What can I do?

I'm not certain, but from your description it sounds as though your fruit is being eaten either by rats or some other rodent. Make sure your tree is well pruned and has a few feet of distance from other trees and buildings. You may need to set a trap around the tree. Your best bet is to contact your local extension service to learn about rodent control in your area. Here's a link: https://sfyl.ifas.ufl.edu/bay/
