I nailed a little plywood box to an oak tree years ago and throw a handful of raw peanuts in it. She figured out if she'd follow me around she'd get more without having to fight over them. Last year it was a fight sometimes to get to the house without a peanut. Climb your pants leg sometimes. This will be her third year, shame cause they usually only live 2 or 3 years in the wild. I've had others and 2 more now that you can hand feed. I don't really try, they either do or they don't.
By the way, never feed them salt. Poison to their system.

My mom passed away on the 25th. I got the house and there is a squirrel in it that has made a huge mess. Decon will kill it I hope and thanksfor the salt thing I'll try that next.
Squirrels belong in the woods not a house my way of thinking.

No snow Tec, just the evening light on a pear tree.
Let them try Mama Beek, no harm done. Just keep them outside.
Alley, you are right, just like rats, chew up insulation on wiring and everything else. That picture is from a bench in my barn. Never had a problem with one trying to move inside.
