Squirrel food: how to help the small animals find food
Squirrels lost their fear of people a long time ago and these days they are happy to romp around in gardens. Therefore it’s a good idea to give these cute small animals a hand in their search for food. Because, especially in winter, food searches are often problematic for squirrels, even though the animals require significantly less food during the cold season. This is because the food supply is relatively limited in the winter months. In addition, with a blanket of snow and ground frost, the little squirrels often have difficulty reaching their laboriously assembled winter supplies. And: irrespective of the season, the search for food in urban spaces for squirrels is increasingly becoming a challenge.
Buy squirrel food online: with Maxi Zoo you are making the right choice
Do you want to support the cute small animals in your area in their search for food? At Maxi Zoo you can buy healthy and high-quality squirrel food. The significance of these features should not be underestimated, since this is additional feed. However, especially in winter, it is really important that squirrels are supplied with plenty of energy and nutrients. The species-appropriate feed mixtures that you can buy at Maxi Zoo are tailored to these needs. In addition to crispy acorns, peanuts, walnuts and hazelnuts, the mixtures also include grains such as corn, oats or barley as well as sunflower seeds, raisins or mealworms. With these ingredients, the squirrels in your area will be perfectly prepared for the stress of winter.
How the small animals get to the squirrel feed
It is recommended depositing the feed in a squirrel house or filling it into a special dispenser for squirrel feed. Both can be ordered from Maxi Zoo in addition to the squirrel feed. Alternatively, you can simply hang the feed bag on a branch or on the railing of your balcony. It is important that the feed is as high as possible so that other animals that are less fond of climbing, such as cats and foxes, do not help themselves to the feed. Also, make sure to keep the squirrel feed dry. After you have attached the feed bag to the respective area, it will not be long before the little acrobats make an appearance and show their delight with the unexpected food. A container with drinking water is also appreciated by the squirrels. If there is a chestnut tree in your garden or in your yard, you can collect the fallen chestnuts and also deposit them in a dry place to make them available for squirrels to eat as they scurry by.
Wild birds are also attracted by the robust feed mixtures. So don’t be surprised, if blue tits, robins and other small birds come to nibble at the squirrel food.
