Squirrel Deterrent from your Bird Feeder

Vicki H


We have a couple of bird feeders and always a couple of squirrels come around and eat most of the seed.

I found a simple solution so the squirrel gets a big surprise next time he wants to eat bird seed!!

How to Make Squirrel Deterrent from your Bird Feeder


  1. Dump some cayenne pepper in your bird seed and shake it up before you fill your feeders - if you don't want the squirrels to eat it.

    The birds won't be able to taste the spice -and won't bother them. But the Squirrel will take one bite and not want it anymore!

    We did this, and watched when the squirrel came around, and it worked.
  2. We put other things out for the squirrel in the winter months. but the seed is for the birds.
