(Some Guy)   Dear Dan: Squirrels climb onto my bird feeder, eating like limber little pigs. How might I make peace with them? Dear guy: why don't you start calling the contraption a "squirrel and bird feeder"? With this new framing, your problems should go away   (danariely.com ) divider line

SoupJohnB: My bro-in-law had a bird feeder hanging outside the window of his den, where he watches TV.  He saw that a squirrel had learned to climb a nearby tree, leap to the feeder, then leap back. So he rigged a cord on a pulley to the feeder, in order to yank the feeder back toward the house, from inside.

Then he waited for the squirrel to jump over, and pulled the cord while it was in mid-air. And the squirrel ate bricks, instead of birdseed.  Not the ideal solution, but the funniest one I've heard.

One of my aunts just feeds the squirrels too.

What happens is the squirrels eat the seeds in the feeder and the birds eat the seeds and nuts on the ground.   She's okay with that.

What she is NOT okay with are the hawks that started coming around a few years ago.  She didn't like it when she brought it up and I pointed out that, by concentrating a lot of birds and squirrels in her backyard, she set up a convenient hawk feeder.

uncoveror: Put hot peppers, or at least their seeds, in the bird feeder. They don't affect birds, but will teach rodents who's boss.


That only attracts record numbers of invading Mexican squirrels.

Squirrels make a mighty fine gumbo. Think of it as farming.

/all animals were welcome to the food in my garden until we got Demon Murder Cat.

You have a problem with too many squirrels on your property?  That's like having too much bacon in your refrigerator, but you didn't have to pay for it.  My advice, oven roasted.
