Home and Garden
A lot of people consider squirrels as pests which are to be driven away or eradicated from your home or your backyard garden. If given a chance, squirrels can wreak havoc on your home and garden. They will dig up the bulbs in your garden, steal from your bird feeders seeds and chew your electrical wiring in your house.
With just a little amount of creativity, you can distract squirrels from your bird feeders, keep them away from eating the bulbs from your garden while enjoying watching them playing around your home and garden. Read through to see how well you create an environment in your home and garden whereby you will live harmoniously with squirrels.
Squirrels love eating therefore if you reside in an area where there are plenty of squirrels, attracting them to your garden or home will not be much of a big deal, all you need is to put the right food in your garden, and they will knock right at your doorstep. To achieve this, all you will need will be to construct wooden squirrel feeders, depending on your taste or preferences you may choose to create either a picnic table squirrel feeder or a Heather squirrel feeder. Once you buy or construct these squirrel feeders, you should separate your bird feeders from your squirrel feeder so that both the birds and the squirrels feed both in peace.
Squirrels love corn and sunflower seeds, and this is the reason why they will always scatter your bird feed everywhere. You should, therefore, put out trays of corn and sunflower seeds in their squirrel feeder for them to eat. If you wish to see a little bit of some acrobatics from your window pane or while sitting on a bench in your garden? Then you should invest in buying unique squirrel feeder that will make squirrels swing and jump from one funny squirrel feeder to another so as to get food. If you just want your squirrels not to keep on moving from one tree to another or from one place to another, all you have to do is to hang your corn or sunflower seeds on a tree branch.
Finally, by leaving hollow trees, you can easily attract squirrels into your garden since these hollow trees do provide nesting sites for squirrels. In case you do not have these hollow trees in your garden, you can hang nest boxes around your garden or home yard.
