Matt, there was another thread with someone who attached firecrackers to someones legs. Perhaps that's something you could apply here... the squirrel has a long inviting tail. blink.gif


LOL! I couldnt do that to a helpless animal......... or could I unsure.gif

Those grey murderers scaring off all our beautiful red squirrels sad.gif

You know; those grey things are living in the insulation of my friend's house- they're huuuuge. We're having a big problem trying to get them out sad.gif

Well maybe you could feed them too with more "inviting" food in a different place smile.gif But in a long run that can worsen the problem laugh.gif

What am I going to do about him unsure.gif unsure.gif unsure.gif


Adding an alternative feeding area for the squirrels is one way to handle it. If they find something that's easier, they'll go there instead of working so hard for the bird seed. Most of the things you can do to keep the away from that feeder is going to need redoing the feeder. One thing I've seen that works well is to hang the feeder from a straight arm, poke a hole in the bottom of a plastic water bottle and put the arm through it before you put the feeder on. They step on the bottle, the bottle turns out from under them. Everntually they figure out that it's not worth the fall.

We tend to feed them where I live and sometimes they just come to hang out. I have a lot of nut trees in my yard though so they're out there whether I feed them or not.

You could get another hobby: Squirrel Stuffing. All you need is a boxing glove and a bag. (A cookie if you get the reference ^^)

Squirrels creep me out. I hate the feeling of being watched by something in a tree while walking through a park. They are evil i tell you.

ROBINS ARE THE TRUE EVIL!.. which is why i encourage the develupment of squirl feeders rather than bird feeders... smile.gif

I had squirrels getting in my tomato plants. I read somewhere that cayene pepper would keep them away so I thew it around the plant.
No more squirrels smile.gif

Prior to the pepper I had purchased some pellets for my airrifle as the last resort.

Squirrels.... I read in a book that they're planning world dominance... Screw "War of the Worlds" and "Day After Tomorrow"... The next big movie concept will be: "When Squirrels Attack!"
