Made from capsaicin (the substance that gives hot peppers their heat), Squirrel Away effectively discourages squirrels from raiding your bird feeders. Simply mix the powder with the seed before filling feeders. When squirrels get a taste of the hot pepper, they'll look elsewhere for their next meal. Birds, on the other hand, aren't able to taste the capsaicin so they feed normally.

About Me Budget Shopper
I used the product as directed. The squirrels are still raiding the bird feeder. I'll continue to see if they quit. It's obvious the pepper bothers them.

Hazardous to use
from Franconia, NH
This sounded easy and useful in the description. When I got it and saw the number of precautions to be taken by the user, I decided against it. Don't get it in your eyes, don't touch it, don't let your pets come in contact with it, don't use on a windy day etc., etc.. I thought about sending it back but decided to take it to the local transfer station. They told me it would have to be disposed of with other hazardous waste. Anything that qualifies for that treatment isn't anything I want to even feed to the squirrels.Why is Gardeners Supply even selling this stuff?
Merchant response: We're so sorry that you were alarmed by our Squirrel Away. We do want to assure you that this product is 100% ground chili peppers, similar to what you would buy in a grocery store to flavor food. You didn't provide your e-mail address, so we can't contact you, but we hope you'll call our friendly customer service staff at 1-800-876-5520 so we can make this right for you.

This stuff works
from Chesapeake Va
I have a severe squirel issue in my yard. This seems to keep them off of my feeder. I do not have to use anything else to keep them out.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Just mix with seed and never worry about the Squirrels eating all the seed. Once those pesky pests handle or try eating the seed, they are quick to leave. Live in wooded rural area, the squirrels use to hang on the feeders, chew'em up and and pour the seed out. Not anymore...Love this stuff!
