Are squirrels eating all of your bird seed? Try our Spicy Squirrel mix! A highly nutritious peanut, sunflower, and mealworm blend, mixed with Flaming Hot Squirrel Sauce. Squirrels, rodents, and other mammals are not a fan of spicy foods, but birds don't have pain receptors for spicy things, so it doesn't bother them like it does with mammals.
Capsaicin is the compound in hot chili peppers that makes them spicy. Squirrels, mice, deer, and other mammals dislike spicy foods, and therefore, do not like the hot pepper products. On the other hand, capsaicin does not irritate or damage the tissues or digestive tract of birds, so they are able to eat hot pepper seed and suet foods without issue.
Ingredients: Shelled Peanuts, Dried Mealworms, Sunflower Kernels, Dried Cranberries, Flaming Hot Squirrel Sauce.
