My squirrels LOVE spicy food!
So I read an article which stated that one sure fire way to stop squirrels from eating all my bird food was to mix it with cayenne pepper and chilli powder. I did so only to find a family of squirrels munching away at it the very next day. They seem to like the birdseed Bombay mix more than the plain stuff. Another rubbish gardening myth - like copper wire for slugs. I put copper tape round my hostas and it had zero impact. Who comes up with this stuff?
