Squirrels emptied my hanging bird feeder quickly and regularly regardless of my efforts to physically deter them. After using Sizzle and Heat, squirrels are no longer a problem, seriously! Only bird seed that I will use. Birds love it, squirrels detest it!
I‘ve been using this brand of bird food for years now and it’s the best I think because I no longer have a problem with the squirrels eating it.
I bought this to keep the squirrels at bay but it actually keeps the birds away also. Won’t be buying this again.
Keeps the squirrels and everything else other than birds from your feeders, a must try!
The birds really do like this bird seed. Unfortunately, the squirrels love it and I can't keep them away from it! The product description on the Wild Delight website says the following: After much development and product testing, we created Sizzle N' Heat, a squirrel-deterrent product. While this is not a squirrel-proof product, our studies showed it to be a very effective squirrel deterrent. While squirrels may still visit and feed at feeders, once they get a taste of the hot seeds, most will look for other sources of food. I can't keep the squirrels away from the feeders and they return as often as possible. I purchased the product to deter them from eating the bird seed. The above description is very misleading.
First product I’ve used that really keeps squid’ chipmunks off the feeders. Birds love it. Best price around.
I love this seed and it does keep squirrels out of area for multiple feeders with different seed. If you have dogs with access to area around feeders that like to sniff or nibble on anything, use this with caution. My older small dog experienced bronchial issues after sniffing the ground near seed; coughing, sneezing and wheezing. Benadryl and a few days after watering down the area took care of it. No issues with other seed, like Bugs N Berries but I do try to keep dogs away from feeders altogether.
The Wild Delight Sizzle N' Heat Wild Bird Food is better than the Audubon Park Spicy Blend. It has more of the seeds birds like and there is less waste being tossed on the ground.
This is the best bird seed for discouraging squirrels and other mammals. Seed blend is totally cleaned up by the birds, unlike some other hot mixes that include corn and rapeseed, which the birds ignore.
Birds love it, squirrels hate it. As a matter of fact, we do not see the furry critters around as much anymore.
