A great distraction for keeping the squirrels and other types of wildlife away from your bird feeders is to place some wildlife seed to your yard.Â By feeding the wildlife in your yard, you can deter the squirrels and wildlife from eating up your bird seed. Keeping the squirrels and other types of wildlife away from your bird feeders not only saves you money on bird seed, but also helps the birds to thrive in addition to the squirrels and other types of wildlife throughout the entire year.
One way to keep the squirrels away from your bird feeders is to place wildlife food near the squirrels.Â The Wild Life Block for Squirrels and Other Wildlife by Pine Tree Farms is perfect for getting the squirrel’s attention and keeping their interest.Â This block of feed contains a variety of nuts, seed, oats, millet, and more and is ideal for attracting squirrels, raccoons, and other types of big, wild birds.Â It is fun to watch the animals pick away at the block.
You may also want to try a loose feed, such as the Chuckanut Backyard Wildlife Diet, in a wildlife feeder to attract the squirrels away from the bird feeders.Â This seed works great in a ground feeder or in a feeder with open sides for easy access to the seed.Â The seed mix includes a variety of healthy nuts and seeds that are irresistible to squirrels and other types of wildlife.
When feeding the squirrels or other types of wildlife in your yard, place the seed near your home for easy viewing of your visitors.Â You might be surprised at the number of visitors that you have or the type of wildlife that are attracted to your yard.
