Apricots

Apricots

I have an apricot tree in the backyard of the house I rent. It always freezes late in the spring here, so it has never fruited in the years we've lived here. It looks like this year it's going to get fruit! I know nothing about fruit trees. Should I do anything to help these fruits along, or do I just let them do their thing and pick 'em? Also, I don't mind sharing with the birds and squirrels, but is there any way to keep this tree from becoming the neighborhood attraction? This tree is a popular path for raccoons in the summer too, so I don't know what to do about that.
