Even though squirrels make the most of the winter months in the autumn, bottlenecks can occur in cold days. If you want to support them with food or a sheltered shelter, here are a few ideas.
1. Squirrel food for cold winter days
Squirrels devote themselves to winter dormancy in the cold season. In between, they come out of their nest and look for the nuts they have buried him autumn. Especially with ground frost, this is very difficult - they support the red rodent at this time best with special squirrel food, which is available in the animal trade and it should best be available around the clock.
2. Strengthened by nutritious peanut kernels
Peanuts are perfect for wild birds and squirrels in winter. Due to their high oil and fat content, they are wonderful energy sources and of course unseasoned. Stored in a practical five-liter bucket they are an ideal supplement for the winter months.
3. Eat undisturbed at the cozy bird feeders
A bird feeder is a hygienic and practical way to feed wildlife with nuts and mixed feed. It stays fresh for a long time, does not get wet, and gives squirrels a great way to eat undisturbed in elevated places. In between, you should thoroughly clean the feeding station.
