Squirrels can benefit from a little extra food now and then to keep them strong, happy and healthy in their local habitats and environments. Little Peckers has some supplementary squirrel food options so that you can show your appreciation to our little furry friends with a helping hand.
Everyone knows of the scarcity of UK’s native red squirrels; though it is also true to say that, especially up to the early spring, it can be hard for all species of squirrel, red, black and grey, to get by. At this time, much of the buried food can have been lost, and if not lost then it may have begun to sprout and now be growing.
To avoid squirrels then resorting to taking buds off plants and trees, which oftentimes can be a destructive process, it is consequently a great time for the squirrels, plants, trees and therefore the environment on the whole for you to feed the squirrels in your garden.
