I planted some pumkin seeds earlier in the year, they have flowered and a couple of them started to bear some fruit. A few days later when I checked on them the small pumpkin had gone! Are there any animals / rodents that eat them? And if so is there a way to repel them?

Rats and mice can find them tasty. A couple of years ago I picked up one of my pumpkins and the whole inside had been hollowed out from the bottom. Too much for it to be slugs and snails so I presumed it was a rodent. Not sure what can deter them without tainting the crop.
