Until recently we had been using regular store bought bird seed in our feeder and very few birds were feeding there. A few days after we put Cole’s Blue Ribbon Blend in the feeder there were so many birds we needed an air traffic controller!

After losing an entire bird feeder full of seed to the squirrels, I bought a bag of the Blazing Hot Blend and accompanying suet. Within a few days, I saw every bird you said I would: bluebirds, titmice, cardinals, woodpeckers, chickadees and some others I cannot identify. The squirrels are

I am looking forward to using your products. My neighbor is getting all the attention from beautiful birds and I get none.

We have been purchasing Cole’s bird seed mixes for a goodly number of years. We started a few years ago using only the Special Feeder mix. We had been told that larger woodpeckers would not come to small feeders and that bluebirds would not come either. Wrong on both counts.

My wife and I recently got a bird feeder and a bag of your Blue Ribbon Blend seed. We soon enjoyed a large number and variety of birds in our backyard. When that bag ran out, I unfortunately tried to save some money and bought some seed from one of

My backyard bluebirds bring their babies to my Hot Meats feeders. The little, spotty, uncertain babies hold tight to the shepherd’s crook above the feeder, while the parent, generally Dad hops down, gathers seed, and feeds the young fledglings. The parents and babies will do this for 2-3 days, then

We just moved into our new house in January and put out our bird feeder and the squirrels were eating the seed, what was not being kicked out by the birds, what a waste. I bought some Cole’s Hot seed and now I have no squirrels eating the seed and

We bought two bags of Cole’s Hot Meats and we are quite pleased. Living in a wooded area, the squirrels have been “hogging” our bird feeders and keeping the birds away. Today, we filled the feeders with Hot Meats and watched the squirrels begin to shy away. Now we have

I love Cole’s Bird Seed! I decided that I would try the “Blue Ribbon Blend” to satisfy my titmice and chickadees. Come to find out, not only did my titmice and chickadees love it, but also my red-bellied woodpecker who only comes to my feeder when it is filled with

Many thanks Cole’s, I used to think that all Squirrels were just God’s creatures, but I have recently really developed a “hatred” for Squirrels (all kinds, colors, shapes and sizes)… my brother-in-law says that, “a squirrel is nothing but a rat with a bushy tail that can climb a tree”…

We had a few weeks of tranquil and very successful bird feeding. A pair of cardinals moved in. Then we were over run, inundated by squirrels! They literally demolished our feeders! We turned to the hot feeds and we are back to successful and tranquil bird feeding again! Not a

We have a horrible problem with squirrels. The Cajun Cardinal blend keeps them away, yet keeps a constant flow of Blue Jays, Cardinals, Red-breasted woodpeckers, titmice, wrens, and other interesting birds at our feeder. The extra cost is definitely worth it for the great show we get. Go Cole’s!

I wanted to tell you how pleased I am with your Flaming Squirrel Seed Sauce. It has saved me a ton of money on seed and made my 9 backyard feeders squirrel and raccoon free. I just pour a little on my Sunflower seed and mix it up. I have

I just bought my first bag of your seed at Whole Foods. I purchased the Hot Meats. I just put it in one of my feeders and it is now covered with birds. I have two other feeders and they obviously prefer the Hot Meats. I am enjoying watching them.

The chickadees, brown-headed & white-breasted nuthatches, red-bellied woodpeckers, cardinals, doves, carolina wrens all enjoy it immensely, and it is comforting to be able to stand at that back window and watch the show. Thanks for the great product!

The squirrels have had their way with me for 10 years of trying to outsmart them. If I put chili peppers on safflower seed they just learned to like it and shouted Ole! Cole’s Hot Meats was a last ditch effort and by gum, those squirrels have left it alone

I found your dried mealworms at Dewayne’s in Smithfield and they were the greatest things. The bluebirds love them and they are so much easier than live ones.

For the past 15  years I have been fighting an expensive and losing battle with squirrels.  They have outmaneuvered all my expensive bird feeders.  One of the salesmen at my hardware store recommended Cole’s Hot Meats.  Having tried pepper before, I was not hopeful but finally tried it a week

It is so true that the Bluebirds love the Hot Meats! We put it in our dome feeder right by our kitchen window. The squirrel’s hate it so all of the true sunflower feeding birds come! Thanks for such a great product! It is worth every penny!

Thanks for such a wonderful product that produces no waste. My yard is a symphony for the entire neighborhood as it attracts many birds we would not normally see or hear!

Traveled 36 miles one way to purchase Cole’s Blazing Hot birdseed…Using third bag now and unfortunately the squirrels still love it. I as well as grandchildren still have to chase them off of my birdfeeder as I did before with a much cheaper birdseed. The number of birds it attracts

I had a problem with squirrels eating from my bird feeders. I purchased a bottle of this (Flaming Squirrel Seed Sauce) and boy does it work! Warning: Wear gloves when using or your skin will feel like it is on fire.

I know what the ingredients are listed on the bag, what I want to know is; what is the secret stuff, you know the thing that makes them fight each other to get some. I have Mourning Doves that line up six deep to get their share, and the Woodpeckers

Half of the fun of selling your Hot Meats are the stories of the squirrels rolling in the sand and trying to spit the pepper out. We tell our customers that there is a lot of sweet revenge in feeding Cole’s Bird Feed.

I have multiple feeding stations and attract a variety of birds. On my deck I had a squirrel proof tube feeder that I filled with sunflower kernels to avoid the mess of shells. I was over run with gold finches. I know most people would be thrilled to attract so

I recently got into the joys of birdfeeding about 3 months ago. Since them I acquired some squirrel problems as well. I was told by my local bird store (Wild Birds Unlimited) that Coles Hot Meats bird seed would keep them out of my tube feeders! I have been using

I have never had much luck attracting birds to my yard until I started making my own blend with Cole’s. Now, I have no waste, a steady flow of beautiful regulars, plus some nifty visitors like a rose-breasted grosbeak today! Thanks Cole’s!

I tried Cole’s bird seed for the first time in my bird feeder last year. When I ran out, I bought another brand at a large retailer. Not only did the birds I had seen eating the Cole’s not eat the other brand, the other one actually molded in the

It took a year for the squirrels to discover our bird feeder. They would climb on the roof lean over and completely dominate the feeder. About a month later, we stumbled across a Cole’s flier. After we placed the “hot meats” in place…here came the squirrels. The first one scared

Thank You Cole’s! Over the past several years I’ve had many problems with squirrels and black birds that would come into my yard and just create havoc. Thanks to your Safflower seed my problem has gone away and I now have the type of birds I prefer to have in

I love Cole’s Hot Meats, Blazing Blend and White Millet. I get more of a variety of birds by using their brand, and I like it because it keeps the squirrels away. It is worth the money because you don’t have to use as much because the squirrels are not

After an infestation of flying squirrels in my attic I stopped bird feeding because I no longer wanted to attract them to my yard. Then I heard of your “hot” products. I just purchased several of these and look forward to feeding and enjoying the birds again!
