Trouble maker.


Trouble maker.

Came to see what is available. They can chew through plastic box to get what they want and OH is trying to discourage them from the feeders but they are too smart. They always figure out the way around. This is going on for 18 years.

You’re right Klahanie, they are smart. They used to try to get into our feeders with their acrobatic ploys but seem to have given up now.

They should be healthy Ange, they are stealing food from birds. We live in a forest with lots of cones for them.

You are lucky Sheila to have squirrel proof feeders.
I think Andy enjoys the challenge but I feel that they are winning.

A cute troublemaker indeed! We had a horrid rat on our peanut feeder the other day, OH had to ‘get rid of it’. Yuck!

Klahanie I recently read they don't like any kind of muscle rub i.e. Deep Heat or Voltarol etc. I suppose it's the heat or smell you could try rubbing some round the feeding box it would be an interesting experiment ...

Kate, these are rats in a cute coat. they also have many lives. They jump from the second floor on the concrete pad and run away. No problem. They also multiply like rats.
I let our owl to take care of that.

They look cute and there are a few around here, but I prefer the red squirrels.

I wish we would have some red squirrels Linda. Unfortunately, we have only tons of greys and a few black.

When we lived on the I.O.Wight they only had red squirrels there. Only seen greys around here.
