Feeding squirrels in the garden can be fun and highly entertaining and it may even convince them to leave your bird feeders alone! Providing squirrels with their own supply of food in a corner of the wildlife garden has been shown to discourage them from damaging bird feeders.
Our squirrel feeders are supplied fully assembled, simply remove from the packaging and hang in the garden. Both grey squirrel feeders have a 'flip top' and perching platform from which the squirrels quickly learn to lift the lid and remove food a piece at a time. In some gardens squirrels can be very destructive and will actually start chewing the wooden squirrel feeder. If in doubt, we'd always recommend the metal squirrel feeder to be sure. Both feeders can be hung using a single hook or nail.
Sometimes it may take a little while for squirrels to find the feeders and in these instances we recommend placing a few peanuts on the platform and even one to prop the lid open to encourage them to use the squirrel feeder. Once, discovered however there will be no looking back, squirrels love to use them.
