A squirrel's diet consists of fruits, plants, seeds, nuts and flowers. Squirrels are attracted to bird feeders for the tasty, convenient food supply. While there are many inhumane methods to prevent squirrels from getting into a bird feeder, using a natural strategy helps respect and preserve both native squirrel and bird populations. Outsmarting a cunning squirrel is not always an easy task, but bird aficionado's will find it worth the effort.
Tips & Warnings
Many natural products---such as squirrel-proof feeders and seed---are available at your local Home Depot, Lowe's or bird-feed supply store.
Squirrels are persistent creatures, and they will continuously attempt to outwit any obstacle for a tasty meal.
