Attracting squirrels with squirrel feeders can be a fun and rewarding activity. Here are some tips to help you attract these cute critters:

Choose the Right Feeder:

Squirrel feeders come in various designs, including simple platforms, corn cob holders, and more elaborate designs like spinning feeders. Choose one that suits your preferences and the types of squirrels in your area.


Place the feeder in an area where squirrels are likely to frequent, such as near trees or bushes. Make sure it's easily accessible for them.

Use the Right Food:

Squirrels enjoy a variety of foods, including nuts, seeds, corn, and fruits. You can buy squirrel feed mixes from pet stores or make your own mix. Popular choices include peanuts, sunflower seeds, and corn kernels.

Protect the Feeder:

Squirrels can be persistent and may try to raid bird feeders or damage squirrel feeders. Consider placing baffles or guards on the feeder pole to deter squirrels or invest in feeders specifically designed to be squirrel-proof.

Keep it Stocked:

Make sure to regularly refill the feeder with fresh food to keep the squirrels coming back.

Provide Water:

Squirrels need water just like any other animal. Consider placing a shallow dish of water near the feeder to provide them with a refreshing drink.

Be Patient:

It may take some time for squirrels to discover your feeder, so be patient and give them time to find it.

By following these tips, you should be able to attract squirrels to your feeder and enjoy watching them frolic and feed in your backyard.
