As the battle against the squirrels goes on, besides making your feeders squirrel resistant, a little bribery can also help. Setting up an easy to use squirrel feeder that is away from your bird feeders can help to distract them from causing trouble at your bird feeders.
The Squirrels Only Feeder is a small wooden box in which you place a squirrel’s favorite goodies, such as peanuts or pumpkin seeds. The squirrel must lift the lid and hold it open while it takes out a treat. the Squirrel Spinner, Spin-A-Cob and Squirrel-A-Whirl also provide challenges for your squirrels. These products have several long arms to attach a dried ear of corn. When the squirrel climbs after the corn, the arms twirl from its weight. Another fun way to feed is in our Squirrel Jar feeder. It’s designed to keep seed dry and squirrels go inside the glass jar to dine in comfort and in complete view! We also have a table and chair feeder for polite squirrels, and a See-Saw and Trapeze feeder for the kids. Hang a corncob from the elastic Squngee feeder and when the squirrel jumps on , it bounces up and down like a bungee cord.
Do you want more squirrels in your backyard? If so up one or two Squirrel Condos from Chuck-A-Nut. Mounted high in the trees they make great homes for squirrels (as well as owls and woodpeckers) especially where dead timber is in short supply.
