In the meantime, try out these tips to ensure your cob squirrels stay happy and healthy.
Installing a cob squirrel feeder
If you want to attract more squirrels to your yard, you should install a cob squirrel feeder. These feeders are a fun way to feed your local critters. You can make these feeders in a variety of hilarious shapes, including hearts, skulls, and bananas. You can even feed more than one squirrel, or a small group, by adding a second cob feeder. Depending on your needs, you can choose from several different types of feeders, each designed to attract a particular species of wildlife to your yard.
To install a squirrel feeder, you will need to cut holes in the side and bottom pieces. You can use fishing wire hangers. Be sure to fasten the wire loops securely. Next, you will need to drill a pilot hole in the bottom piece of the feeder so you can screw in the screws. Once you have drilled holes in the sides and back pieces, you can hang the feeder from the branches.
If you don’t want to spend too much money on a squirrel feeder, you can get a steel squirrel feeder that you can mount to a post or tree. The feeder is stable and won’t fall from the tree if squirrels chew it up. A cob feeder is also an ideal solution if your tree is prone to shaking. It will remain firmly in place despite squirrels chewing on it and scurrying from one branch to the next.
Providing water to a cob squirrel feeder
If you’d like to attract a healthy cob squirrel to your yard, you can provide a squirrel feeder. This will help the animal to regulate its portion size as it works to extract the corn kernels from the cob. You can also add water and fill the feeder with other food such as nuts and fruits. Make sure to avoid using fishing line because the paws of the squirrels can get injured.
It’s better to provide supplemental food than to permanently provide it. This is especially important during the summer, when natural food sources are scarce. By providing a supplementary source of food, you’ll encourage the squirrels to forage naturally. This will prevent them from developing unhealthy habits, such as nibbling on seeds and nutshells. Also, squirrels prefer natural food sources over artificial foods, so it’s a good idea to provide water to the feeder.
For a more traditional squirrel feeder, you can build one that holds the entire ear of dried corn. Woodworking tools are required for this project, as well as a cordless drill. Once you’ve created your own squirrel hangout, you can hang the feeder on a tree or on an outer wall of your home. Once it’s hanging, your cob squirrel feeder will be a magnet for squirrels.
Providing service to your pet squirrel
If you have a corncob in your yard, you’re probably providing a valuable service for your pet squirrel. Not only will the squirrel be happy to get some free food, but you’ll also get to see some entertaining behavior. You can even get in on the action by opening your cob squirrel feeder and handing the critter a piece of dried corn! However, be sure to keep your cob squirrel feeder well-hidden from birds and other wildlife!
If your yard has a tree in it, you can install a wooden cob squirrel feeder. Place it on the tree branch that the squirrel prefers or hang it on a fence. You can mount your feeder on a tree, fence, deck, or fence. Squirrels love open feeders and can eat acorns and other nuts right out of the cob.
If you enjoy watching your pet squirrels, you’ll definitely want to provide one of them with food. A squirrel feeder is an excellent way to attract these friendly visitors. Not only will it attract these adorable animals to your yard, but it will also be entertaining to watch them scurry from tree to tree. These little animals are great fun to watch as they scamper and scurry. And once you’ve got a squirrel feeder, you’ll get to enjoy the scurrying and scampering that comes with the activity.
