a Metal Squirrel Feeder & Ark Squirrel Food, worth £42.75
Squirrels have proved themselves to be extremely intelligent creatures. Did you know that they can put on elaborate pretend food burying displays to deceive other squirrels or birds? Any potential thief planning on absconding with their stash will focus on the bogus burial site, allowing the squirrel to bury the real goodies safely elsewhere.
They spend a lot of time and energy eating. On average, they eat about a pound of food a day. Squirrels will often eat more than their body weight in food each week!
With that in mind, it is hardly surprising that if food is scarce, they will squirrel away any food that they find, whether it has been put out for them or not. If this this causing you problems why not try one of our squirrel resistant feeders.
Many people think that squirrels only eat nuts, but this isn't the case. Squirrels are omnivores, (eating both plants and meat). They will eat fungi, seeds, nuts and fruits, pine cones, leaves, twigs and flower bulbs, but will also munch on small insects and caterpillars.
You can feed visiting squirrels individual fruits and nuts (such as hazelnuts, pine-nuts or peanuts), in their own feeder or their own special place in the garden. Or you might like to try one of our specialised mixes, such as our best-selling Ark Squirrel Whole Nut Mix.
If you are lucky enough to have red squirrels in your garden why not try our Ark Red Squirrel Food. We have formulated if exclusively for their specific dietary requirements, and like our other squirrel foods, it is full of nutritious goodness.
