To many, the Grey Squirrel is only seen as a "pest" and certainly not something to be encouraged into the garden environment. Some people go to extraordinary lengths to stop this loveable rogue from swiping all the bird food - rightly so, in some cases, as their capacity for consuming (or caching) good bird food is second to none! If you've tried all the deterrents, here's something different for you to try: Buy a wooden squirrel feeder and fill it with less expensive seeds or our squirrel mix, fix it to a tree/wall/post and sit back and let him reward you with some early morning swashbuckling gymnastics. After all, they do say laughter is the best medicine.
Key Ingredients: Sunflower, Peanuts, Nuts in shells
Please note: Bird seed recipes may change without notice in line with crop availability, but we'll always select a suitable seed replacement.
I cant believe the different nuts that the squirrel has for choice. We are finding instead of 1 or 2 squirerels coming daily we now have a little familly coming and the food does not last at all long, so the squirrels must be very happy with the food.We have to fill it every day, plus the birds that can, will eat it also.
Thank you for the review, Joan. We always say the faster the food disappears the more it is appreciated. It's great to hear that your visiting squirrels are growing in number and that they are happy to share the nuts with the birds.
"The squirrels have planted parts of this in all of the plant pots and the lawn, and enjoyed eating it. Many birds have enjoyed it to"
"I bought this a few weeks ago and put it in a place where the squirrels would find it. I pad it out with extra peanuts and sunflower hearts. Looks like the magpies have also helped themselves to it. It goes very quickly. It hasn't stopped the squirrels digging up my crocus corms."
"My goodness, the squirrels love this! There’s even been some little youngsters eating it from the bird table, which must be helpful for them whilst they are learning to forage. there’s literally nothing left of it at the end of the day and the birds also enjoy it."
