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.
4 whole squirrels
2 Tablespoons flour
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
3/4 cup finely ground almonds
3/4 cup corn flake crumbs, crushed
1 Tablespoon Vegetable oil
1/2 cup apple juice
juice of 1 lime
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/4 cup of pure american honey none of that grocery store china stuff
Dip squirrels in flour and shake off excess. Set aside. Combine the egg, soy sauce and pepper in a shallow dish; set aside. In another shallow dish combine ground almonds and corn flake crumbs. Dip squirrels in egg mixture to coat and in almond mixture, pressing so the coating adheres to both sides. Brown squirrels in oil in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, until squirrel is no longer pink and juices run clear when cut with a knife. Remove squirrels, set aside. Combine apple juice, lime juice and cornstarch. Add mixture to skillet. Add honey. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Serve squirrels with sauce
