Grey Squirrels

 

Love ‘em or hate ‘em these animals are very common all over the UK. They were first introduced from North America during the late 19th century. These crazy characters spend most of their time in the trees and are one of the few mammals able to climb down head first!

Grey Squirrels are very intelligent and have an excellent memory along with a good sense of smell. This aids them in finding their hidden stash of food, weeks or even months after they have buried them. They are very playful and can give a lot of pleasure to observers of their often hilarious antics and being so common are very easy to spot. Whether you’re for or against this fun-loving creature it looks like the Grey Squirrel is here to stay.

Grey Squirrels eat a variety of food including peanuts, peanuts in shell, acorns, hazelnuts, berries, fungi, buds and shoots. They have a habit of digging holes in gardens and flower beds in which to bury their food. This can make them unpopular with some people. Along with the theft or damage of seed feeders put out for the garden birds. One of the ways you may be able to tackle this problem is to set up a squirrel feeding station. Place it in an area away from the bird feeders. By giving a squirrel their own source of food they may be less likely to do damage to your bird feeders. 

Our top quality premium peanuts are loved by a wide variety of wild birds and wildlife including hedgehogs, squirrels and badgers.

The heavy duty Squirrel Feeder is designed to stand up to the demands of squirrel feeding. The strong peanut hopper with lifting lid is a fun way to feed wild squirrels in your garden or woodland area. The squirrels will quickly learn to lift the lid to access the peanuts visible behind the perspex screen. By providing squirrels with their own easily accessed source of food you can discourage them from helping themselves to the food you put out in your bird feeders.

Peanuts in shell or monkey nuts are a firm favourite for squirrels. They are an oil rich high energy wildlife food that provide a good source of protein.
