Many of Indiana's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Indiana's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Porter county animal services for assistance.

Valparaiso Wildlife Removal Tip: How To Keep Squirrels Out Of My Bird Feeder

Around 52 million people around the world enjoy bird feeding in their gardens and yards. But the terrible fact is that when they install birdfeeders in premises, squirrels also start visiting the area like uninvited guests. For some time, you may find squirrel activities good in your area, but once they start hurting birds on feeders, you will definitely hate them.

Most of the squirrels love to enjoy dining on the bird feeder hanged in your garden, and with time they will teach their babies too to do so. Note that squirrels can easily learn new tricks from the behavior of one squirrel so if you find even a single squirrel doing some crazy activities to reach up to bird feeder, it means the seeds are in danger. Squirrels are smart creatures, and they are good learners as well. They can easily jump between tree branches and if the bird feeder is located close to the trees; they will also attack the seeds inside. Squirrels make it difficult for birds to get their diet from feeders. That is why most homeowners want to get rid of these rodents from their garden or yard area.

If you are also suffering from same trouble; we advise you to take some immediate steps to get rid of these destructive rodents. Below are few trusted solutions to keep squirrels away from bird feeders:

Get a pet dog:

Most homeowners in the United States have tried this trick, and it appears 100% valuable to them. You can easily find a lovely pet dog for your home, and it will soon protect your premises from squirrel attacks. These furry friends are good guards, and they will never allow squirrels to get inside to play with feeders.

Make it spicy:

You might be aware of the fact that birds cannot sense spicy things as they don't have capsaicin. So, even if you mix some hot pepper powder into your bird seeds; they will never have any problem eating it. But on the other side, squirrels cannot tolerate the terrible taste of hot pepper. The best idea is to add around one-quarter cup of pepper in almost 10 pounds of seed. But be careful while adding it as it can also blow into your eyes with little flow of wind.

Install squirrel resistant feeder:

If you live in a prone squirrel area, it is important to install a squirrel resistant feeder in your garden. These well-protected feeders do not cause any difficulty for birds to eat seeds, but they do not allow squirrels to climb up.

Choose right location:

Squirrels are great climbers and jumpers so in order to feed birds; you need to choose feeder location carefully. It must be far away from tree branches and must have a structure that is difficult to climb for squirrels. Place it at a great height from the ground as well so that squirrels can stay away from seeds. Four feet distance from the ground is sufficient.
