Squirrel Resistant Bird Seed
Although squirrels love common bird seeds, such as black oil sunflower seed or corn, there are a few types of bird seed that squirrels don’t like to eat:
Safflower Seeds: Attract birds such as cardinals, chickadees and titmice, but have a bitterness that squirrels usually don't like.
Niger (Thistle) Seed: This seed attracts a variety of finches, but squirrels appear to leave this seed alone, most of the time.
Hot Pepper in Bird Food: Adding some hot pepper is another great way to keep squirrels away. Birds are not affected by the spicy flavor, but squirrels detest it and will usually avoid the peppered seeds.
By offering these seeds in your bird feeders, you can effectively feed the birds you love while limiting the food availability to squirrels.
