DID YOU KNOW

Researchers have found a sure fire way to get rid of those pesky squirrels that will be frequenting your birdfeeders soon.....habanero chili peppers.

It has been proven that the birds love it and the squirrels hate it. You can buy hot meat suet cakes at your local garden stores which contain habanero chili peppers or you can mix a small amount of the dried variety into your birdseed.

Let us know if it works.

Really, the birds love it? How cool is that. It makes me so crazy when the squirrels open up the feeders to eat out of them. Thanks so much for sharing that information. Great Blog!

What a brilliant idea! I'll have to pass this on to my mom. She loves to feed the birds out at her place.

Found you on Etsy! I love your blog! I have been wanting to do a bat house project with my kids for years...I think this is the year to do it. We love bats and birds!
