What about bears? Does the red hot food keep bears away too? Racoons, or skunks or possums? We don't have trouble with squirrels
Answer by ChewyNov 09, 2019
This product is intended to prevent squirrels from eating the bird food. This product may not deter other forms of wildlife.

Does anyone know if moles/vols eat this?
Answer by ChewyApr 06, 2021
They can, but they probably won’t eat it. Moles and Voles are mammals. They will be able to taste the hot pepper powder that is on the seed. So more than likely they will not eat it unless there are no other food sources.

Do rats like “wild sizzle n hear bird food?” Rats are an issue. Thanks
Answer by ChewyDec 22, 2020
This food includes chili peppers to deter squirrels however, it may also deter other animals such as rats and mice.

No Squirrels . . but sparrows love it

This is great at keeping squirrels away. The chickadees, jays, cardinals, and, woodpeckers love it. The only issue is that the sparrows love this stuff also. Now, if you like sparrows this stuff is dynamite. However, unfortunately, once the sparrows start at the feeder they pretty much keep all the other birds away. The sparrows decimate the feeder in a single day. Before the sparrows found the feeder I could go a couple of days without having to refill. The sparrows pretty much took care of that. This bird food is to keep the squirrels away and for that it is definitely 5 stars on my list. I can't really fault the seed for attracting sparrows. I'm going to go with a small mesh tube bag without any way for the sparrows to perch and that should solve that problem.

Claims to deter squirrels. I have a photo of the squirrel feasting on the supposedly hot seed, but of course I get an error message so can't share that with you. Very disappointing and total waste of money.

Squirrels love it

Squirrels are not at all deterred by the heat! They just crack the sunflower seeds and go to town. I’ve given up trying to deter them, gave up & feed the little fat buggers (cheaper) wildlife food! Still have one who prefers food from the feeders oh well

Expensive and doesn’t work

Bought this with high hopes, that it may help, even a little! No way chased the squirrel off 3 times in 15 minutes ! He liked it ! Going to try to add the picture I took .

This is THE BEST

I have about 20 feeders around my house in Pittsburgh, PA, with cameras on most of them because I am obsessed with what happens around my feeders. Since I started using this feed, my yard is busier than it has ever been. The woodpeckers, cardinals, blue jays, et al - LOVE this stuff, and I've been using it for more than a year now. The raccoon are my enemy - and they hate this seed. Squirrels will eat bits and pieces mid-winter when they are starving, but it's so little that it doesn't make me upset. I use it in all of my feeders AND I put piles of it on a ledge on my back patio. (I'm not a review-person, but someone wrote that birds wouldn't eat this - and this is simply not true. I put about 8 cups out last night, and I saw on my cameras today about 75 of 10 different types of birds. At one point, 10-12 cardinals were together on just two of the feeders). I spend a small fortune on this seed because of the sheer quantity that I use.

worth a try

Have tried other brands of "spiced" seed to no avail but was still hopeful that this brand would work...alas my southern hot sauce loving squirrels are not deterred! Seed was good quality and price was fair just not hot enough.

Hungry squirrels

We tried this mix to try to eliminate squirrels from hanging around. Either they are starving or they just enjoy the pepper. Who knows. We use the pepper suet and they definitely dislike that. They are all over this seed mix.

The squirrels don't like it but the birds don't either

I bought 2 bags, I'll be returning one - the squirrels are able to pick through and eat the sunflower seeds but I have 2 squirrel-proof bird feeders with this mix in them and the birds aren't going for it. I poured some right on the ground, and it's squirrels, picking out the sunflower seeds and peanuts, and birds ignoring it.

It does what it says it will do.

It kept the squirrels out of the feeder. That’s what I needed and it delivered !
