So, I am taking my suet cake in every night and refreezing it for the next morning. It is working well. However, it has become a nuisance. Well, today I ordered a suet cage that is squirrel proof, so I am excited about that, and even the raccoons are unable to each the cakes according to all of the reviews I have read.
But, here is my next question for everyone. Do the spicy mixes that are sold really keep the squirrels from eating the black oil sunflower seeds? I now have ten squirrels coming to my feeders. I have installed a baffle, but the little devils are still figuring a way to my feeders.
Thanks a lot,
This is the Predator Polymag .177 pellet. It is the only solution that really works for tree rats.
Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear to be bright until you hear them speak.
I pretty much agree with PacMan. LOL I've tried the cayenne pepper & that stuff. Didn't work for me. I now have a Squirrel Buster feeder made by Dunbar. That seems to work pretty good up until about a month ago. Now something is knocking it to the ground every night (Raccoon is the suspected critter) so I've been bringing it in every night.
Well, unfortunately where we live it is considered to be in the city limits and we are not permitted to fire a weapon of any kind. So, the last thing that I want to do is to get a fine for killing my pests.
Last night I made up a concoction of hot sauce and peppers just as I have read numerous people have done. I emptied out the old sunflower and replaced it with the new recipe mix. This morning I woke up to find no squirrels at all!!!! However, I watched for three hours and I had no birds either. I let it go another hour, cleaned out the feeders, placed new food in, and BANG!!!! Birds galore. I even had a blue bird.
I do not know what to do now.
Your choice then might be a live trap. Get the medium or small size.
Here is a picture of the large size.
Sounds like you will have to trap them and take them far out into the country.
Let every day be a good day!
I put up a cob of corn for the squirrels and a squirrel proof feeder. Had to tape the perches on the feeder cause the squirrels kept knocking them off. I gave up on shooting them with a bee bee gun. I have excellent aim but it didn't faze them at all.
Be the change you wish to see in the world.
