How Do You Get A Squirrel To Like You?
Squirrels can recognize loving gestures from people so it isn’t all that hard getting a squirrel to like you. What you should consider is what way you would like to choose to lure them to your yard or garden. Once you’ve successfully lured a squirrel to your yard or garden, the next step is to become a familiar presence. Squirrels can pick up on smells and gestures from people, so making them aware of your presence will increase their trust in you. Feeding them in the morning and evening will attract them to your area and you’ll be able to feed them for the rest of your life.
Steps To Getting A Squirrel To Like You
The first step to attracting a squirrel is to approach it. Place a peanut on a nearby table or in your hand and wait for it to come closer. Once it starts eating, it may take several days or even weeks to accept the food. To make the experience more bearable for the squirrel, toss the peanuts softly to attract them. Once they are familiar with your presence, they will begin to recognize you as a friend.
If the squirrel doesn’t approach you right away, hold still and ignore it while it feeds. This will give the squirrel a sense of security and trust. However, it may take a few days for the animal to accept you. When you are first trying to get a new friend, be patient. It may take several attempts before you’ll see any results.
If you’re not comfortable approaching the animal, don’t approach it. It may take months to build up the courage to approach you. Always remember to stay as calm as possible and wait for the squirrel to approach you. Once the squirrel gets used to the activity, it may approach you in the future. If you don’t have patience, you can try giving the animal a treat by hand – this will encourage them to trust you.
