Rodent Proof Seeds, My Foot!

Safflower seeds are specifically advertised to repel squirrels, blue jays and other nuisances. So we bought a brick of the stuff and a special feeder (with squirrel baffle).

We are the ones who are baffled. There is one squirrel who thinks we set them out just for him. Big, fat fellow, who is out there right now, even as I blog these photos we took the day before.

Put cayenne pepper in the bird seed. Wont repel the jays but the fuzzy rodents hate it.

Squirrels are funny creatures! Its hard to say what will work that doesn't discourage the birds too.

We knew one at my college that loved Skittles!
