Danger of Feeding Raw Peanuts to Squirrels - Northwest Seed & Pet
Thank you for your quick delivery of bulk peanuts. We live in the arid part of Washington State and until recently had no squirrels. One day showed up and started giving us a lot of joy. They need help in the winter so we feed them peanuts. Your company has been great to work with. We buy 200 lbs a year. I cannot believe how quickly your order gets to us out west. We thank you and our squirrels thank you.
Squirrels have a very keen sense of smell and the bulk of their time during summer and fall is spent looking for food and keeping their Drays and dens fixed up for the coming winter. You can smear a little peanut butter on the nut meat to make it a little more fragrant, but it is not really necessary.
