Great product but very messy

This is a great product. Definitely keeps the squirrels away from seed as long as it’s well coated. The huge drawback is how messy it is to pour from the bottle. Drips down the side and hot oil gets everywhere. I wrote to the company months ago about changing the cap to one with a pour spout but I never heard back. I’m hoping they can make this simple change as it would improve the process of oiling seed significantly.

The feeders with wild bird seed are doing well - the birds love the new spicy seed (I added it to your classic blend); however, my mealworm feeder is a different story. It's been about three weeks - I have fewer bluebirds and MORE squirrels. They seem unphased by the spicy meal worms (and I followed directions).

Added Flaming Squirrel Seed Sauce = squirrels gone

 by Karen Darrow Hamstrom

Since adding this to my bird seed the birds have all but disappeared from my yard. I added it to a 15lb bag and now I'll have to buy a new bag. Finches, sparrows, and wrens are gone.

We're sorry that your Flaming Squirrel experience was not immediately positive. We highly recommend that you give it a little more time as sometimes it takes a few days to a couple of weeks for your backyard birds to recognize the new hot seed offerings as a viable food source. Most songbirds are very visual and any change to a feeder’s look, seed color, or contents can temporarily confuse them. Once they get past the change and try it out, you will see a significant increase in bird visits and maybe even a few species you’ve never seen before at your feeder!Here's a great video to explain the phenomena:https://youtu.be/JydeQYI1mss

Works on raccoons too!

My husband received a Bird Dock for Father’s Day. After about a week, the squirrels took over sitting on it eating all the seed. What they didn’t eat, the raccoons ate at night. Happened upon Cole’s when researching how to keep squirrels away from feeders! Bought a bottle from Amazon, mixed up a small batch and the squirrels don’t even attempt to eat the seed now and we watched a raccoon snort real loud when he got his first bite, and they have not been back! They are eating my tomatoes now so I poured some sauce on the ground under my tomatoes, we’ll see if that works too! Thank you so much for this product! I will never be without it from now on.

Awesome product

This stuff works! I bought it because the label on the bottle made be laugh-out-loud. It's been 3 weeks squirrel free where there used to be 2 to 5 all the time. Wear rubber gloves!

Sauce is Effective

Flaming Squirrel Sauce has definitely been helpful in dramatically reducing squirrel AND deer interest in our feeders over the last several years. I've had some squirrels go "rogue" and seem to develop a tolerance for it, but those have been rare and when I've had that situation I've upped the "dosage" to teach it a lesson. I agree with some reviewers that you have to be very careful how you handle it and what you touch after handling it - I've learned a couple hard lessons - it can even permeate some types of rubber gloves, so thick cloth gloves are preferable.

Squirrels love this stuff

The store clerk told me this would keep squirrels off my feeder - he said squirrels can't stand the capsaicin. Absolutely not true. I coated a tray of sunflower seed and put it out. The squirrel sat there eating it for at least 5 minutes - I have video showing it.

Thank you your feedback. The store clerk is correct in that most mammals - including squirrels and humans alike - find capsaicin to be too hot for comfort and choose to avoid it....the key being they have to know how hot it is first.Since all “Hot” products are based on taste preferences, they must be eaten for birds to learn it is a delicious new food source and for other animals to discover it is not their favorite flavor. It is important to know that chilies are not repellents. Within a short period of time most mammals simply decide they do not like the taste and move on to other more palatable food sources in your yard, thus freeing up the feeder for your favorite visitors to hang out even longer.So you will definitely see different critters giving it a try when you first put it out. Usually they begin eating then realize after the heat kicks in that it is not for them and they leave - and yes, if it is the first time they've tasted it, it could take a few minutes.Hopefully this helps, but if not we'd love for you to contact us directly so that we may assist you in improving your experience with Cole's Flaming Squirrel. We would be more than happy to go over your particular situation and hopefully provide some tips and advice to get the most out of your purchase.

🔥Hell’s Fire🔥

Eyeball evaporating
Mucus membrane melting
Sinus searing
But that’s just my reaction…Instructions said to mix 1.5 oz (3 tbsp) with 5 lb of seed. (I have storage for 2 lb of seed.) I put 1 tbsp in a spray bottle with 4oz water, and spritzed it on the seeds in the shepherd’s hooks and feeder trays....The squirrels on the fence LOOKED at the feeders, but hopped off the fence out of my yard. Chickadees, juncos, house finches, goldfinches SWARMED the trays. Overall, I’d recommend, but use a mask and eye protection!

We are happy to hear you had such a good result! Thank you for sharing your experience. As a "good news" side note, there is no need to dilute Flaming Squirrel with water - so go ahead and use it straight. The birds will thank you!

Hot Stuff

No Squirrels! I have no idea if birds prefer it or not because I've not done any side by side tests.

This stuff is really spicy. If you made a version that was human safe I'd probably be cooking with it daily.
