One of the best ways to discourage squirrels from eating Birdola® Plus™ is to give them their own feed cake, and their own place to dine. This 2-1/2lb cake of whole corn, black oil sunflower seeds and peanuts will do the trick. A Squirrola® cake is equivalent to 9 ears of corn! When placed in an accessible area - away from bird feeders - squirrels will eat Squirrola® and not dominate the bird feeders. In addition, some people just like to feed squirrels.
