We love feeding the birds and have even managed to set up some nice bird feeders out back. However, we also have some squirrels who make it really difficult for the birds. Meet the most determined squirrel of them all: Nutty McNutface.
So, you may be wondering what we’ve done about the squirrel issue. Well, did you know that squirrels hate hot peppers, but birds don’t notice? Well, the squirrels are definitely not fans and they avoid the feeders now like the plague. 😀 We mixed in some red pepper flakes and paprika. Works like a charm! Want to keep squirrels out of your feeders? Give it a try. 🙂 Oh, and we also wrapped some slinkys around the bird feeder hangers. 🙂
