Cute squirrel pictures

We have a new friend hanging around the store. Dolly thinks we should let her in with open arms. She's just a little thing, new to the neighborhood and learning the ropes. She's already got her cute face down pat.

Not Feeding Squirrels 
People either seem to love squirrels or hate them. Many people complain that the squirrels are eating their birds’ food. The number one selling feeder at Wild Birds Unlimited - East Lansing is the squirrel proof feeders. We can also help you create a squirrel proof set up with baffles or choose a seed to deter squirrels.

Feeding Squirrels 
For some people, feeding squirrels is actually fun or provides a distraction to deter squirrels from bothering their bird feeders. Wild Birds Unlimited - East Lansing has several feeders and food for squirrels. It is recommended that people who feed the squirrels place food away from window sills or door steps so as to discourage squirrels coming through screens.

Relocating Squirrels 
If you or anyone you know is trapping and moving squirrels, please let them know that it is illegal to move wildlife in Michigan without a permit. And you may be doing more harm than good. Squirrels live in territories and every time one is removed, another will take its place. Moving squirrels that are pregnant or that have babies waiting for their mother could result in death. And in the fall squirrels hide food for later. If they are relocated it may be too late for them to start over. However, if you leave the squirrels that you have, alone they will keep other squirrels away. Wild Birds Unlimited - East Lansing can show you how to squirrel proof your bird feeding station so that you and the squirrels, can live in harmony.
