Got birdfeeders? Then I bet you have squirrels!
I have birdfeeders – lots and lots of birdfeeders. I go through about 25 pounds of birdseed a month. And, as much as I love feeding the birds, feeding the squirrels is not my goal. We have lots of trees with nuts and acorns so our squirrels are not going hungry. I really fight to keep them out of the feeders.
My first attempt at controlling them was to invest in “squirrel proof birdfeeders” and that works fine. However, I have many truly lovely birdfeeders that are not at all squirrel proof and I really want to be able to use them!
Finally, I made the most amazing discovery – Safflower Seed!
So now I have seed mixes in my “squirrel proof” feeders and Safflower seed in my pretty feeders and my squirrel feeding problem is solved.
Have you found any tricks to share?
