Q:Feed the birds but not the squirrels!
For many years my husband and I have had great pleasure from all the birds we in the garden. It was great when we spotted a new species - out the book would come to identify what it was. But then the squirrels moved in so we stopped feeding the birds and needless to say I don't get them in the garden anymore. If you have any suggestions of getting the birds back whilst keeping the squirrels at bay I would be delighted to hear. Regards MargaretAsked on 3/11/2009 by Margaret Lewis
A:Our squirrels tend to try to climb the pole of the feeder so we do 2 things.
1. Put a squirrel feeder near to where the squirrels enter the garden and well away from the bird feeder.
2. Apparently birds cannot taste curry powder,but squirrels can. If you dust the bird seed/ peanuts with curry powder(during a dry spell of weather) it will put them off. Do that again when you notice they are getting cheeky to remind them. It worked for our garden.
If that doesn't work, just enjoy their acrobaticsAnswered on 27/3/2016 by Torchie from Wirral
A:Hello there, I think it would be lovely to encourage the birds back, but can understand your reluctance to have the squirrels. Therefore perhaps your best option would be a feeder that the birds can use, but the squirrels can't . We do have a couple, which are said to be almost 'squirrel proof' - just click on the following link to go straight to them. http://www.crocus.co.uk/search/_/search.squirrel-proof/ If this works out, then perhaps you can then put up some nesting boxes and even a bird bath. I hope this helps and I will keep my fingers crossed for you. Helen Plant DoctorAnswered on 4/11/2009 by Crocus Helpdesk
A:I notice that this has been up a long time, but we solved the problem with a squirrel bowl which fits under the feeders, and is on the website. We had a large garden, surrounded by trees, so birds were in abundance, but so were squirrels. Fit the bowl as in the picture, the only problem we had was they were so cross, they chewed the lower plastic green screw which fits into the top one to fix the bowl, but a square of wire netting pushed up against it stopped them.. It is important not to have any bushes which they can leap from, within about six feet. We had a stone seat about that far away, and they tried to jump from that, but could not get the height. Behind it was a six foot beech hedge but they could not get a firm enough launch pad. Good luck.Answered on 21/10/2013 by spek from chichester
Wildlife-friendly gardens are not only more interesting as you can watch all the comings and goings, but they are often more productive as many creatures will help increase pollination. Garden ponds act as a magnet to dragonflies and damsel flies, along wRead full article
