It is true that it keeps squirrels away, I haven't see one in my feeders after started using this. Do you know what else I haven't see? Birds! I have 16 feeders and early in the morning when I fill them up, there are close to 100 birds on them. After I mixed this sauce on the seeds I see 1 or 2 birds on the feeders, its unreal, the feeders are untouched for 3 days when they are usually empty by noon.
We are sorry to hear your experience with Flaming Squirrel did not meet your expectations. What you describe though is not that uncommon when introducing a new food to your feathered friends. Here's a great Link to explain the phenomena in a little more detail:https://youtu.be/JydeQYI1mssIn short, when you add bright orange-red Flaming Squirrel Seed Sauce to a bag of seed, it changes the color of the seed - and that color change can temporarily confuse the birds. As a result, sometimes it can take a few days to a couple 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 or contents can cause a temporary decrease in bird activity. 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! As always, if you are not completely satisfied with any Cole's product, we will be happy to facilitate a refund for you with the store where you purchased our product. Hopefully though, you'll give it a second chance.
I’ve been using the seed sauce for years now, and interestingly enough, I don’t think it keeps the local squirrel away, BUT, better yet, it keeps RATS away! I came across a bottle of the stuff at Wild Birds Unlimited in Yorba Linda, CA (shouts to Valerie, Leesa, Nick, and the crew!), and I was given an explanation as to what it was supposed to do. I bought a bottle on a whim, mostly to see if it had any effect. Now, we had a ground feeder that was for the ground feeding birds, like the Mourning Doves. I went to fill the feeder when I noticed tiny round droppings that I knew weren’t bird droppings. Thinking we were attracting rats, as well as birds, I thought, “Well, if it works on squirrels, it SHOULD work on rats.” I mixed some into our seed mix, and filled all of our feeders. I checked after a day or so, lo and behold, no more tiny round droppings! Oh, as for the squirrel? I saw it munching away on the seed. Conclusion: Does the stuff work? Yes! Keep in mind, I’m one person out of many. I don’t know what other people's experiences are. For all I know, our local squirrel must’ve been a fan of hot & spicy foods in a past life...
I ordered this originally from Amazon and they shipped it in a flimsy plastic envelope. I feel sorry for the Prime driver who handled it, because the bottle obviously broke and there was sauce everywhere. I returned it. I ordered my next bottle direct from Cole's, added it carefully to my seed about 3 weeks ago and...no more squirrels! The birds LOVE IT!
I fought with the squirrels around my feeders for years! One of them must have had a love affair with me! I fought with him at least two or three years!I tried everything! I hung my feeder about 15 ft in the air and at least 10 feet from the trunk of the trees. I added a baffle over the squirrel proof feeder that I paid at least 50.00 for, he actually ate the plastic so he could get food from around the metal that came down over the feeding hole! It had four chambers and he ate so much of the plastic that only two of the chambers were even able to be used! I swear that little devil Was super squirrel! I greased the poles, I bought two squirrel proof feeders, I put them on poles as high as I could. Hung them on trees, you name it every time someone gave me an idea I tried it! Then after searching and searching, I ran across Coles! That was the best thing since sliced bread! I was really skeptical at first, but I doused that seed good! He came up to the feeder all cocky and took about two big bites! He ran off that thing like he had been shot! Laughed at him but still wasn’t convinced that it would work. I thought oh boy when he didn’t come back that day! The next day he was there all bright and early, he went up and took a tentative bite, then low and behold he ran off without filling up his jaws! He never went back to the feeder, but I did put some fresh corn on his feeder! Everything went great until this years new crop of little babies came along so I had to double my dose of Coles for them. They seem content to nibble their corn! If I thought you would take my first born son, I would gladly wrap him up and send him to you!😃. But I’m afraid you would have to give him a dose of Coles! Thank you so much for carrying Coles and I will happily buy it from you from now on!
I’ve tried everything and was just about to give up until I found this at a local store. I mixed it with the seed and haven’t seen the squirrels in two weeks...amazing! They were eating everything in site and the birds were left with nothing. It took a week for some birds to come back, not all just yet, but I’m sure they’ll find their way because now the feeder isn’t emptied within an hour by the squirrels. TY TY TY!
Squirrels were eating seed like crazy. Tried this & day one...no squirrels but plenty of birds...hope continues to work!
I have 10 bird feeders and not a lot of squirrels but raccoons and they were destroying even medal feeders wired to hooks and even stealing feeders. This sauce leaves the feeders free of the raccoons and the birds love it.
Love this stuff! I have used it for years to keep the squirrels and raccoons out of the peanuts and seed I feed the birds. It works great! Just make sure to either use gloves or not touch your face after mixing with food, even after washing your hands. It won't bother your hands, but might make your face uncomfortable for about 15 minutes (I speak from experience...more than once).
So I ordered some of this stuff online from True Value Hardware. I always have birds on my property and I have lots of feeders. So I put this stuff into the bird feed. When I first put it out birds came by tasted it and left which I thought was odd. So a few days go by and NO birds eating but they are flying right by the feeders and you can see and hear them in the trees. So I decided to empty and washout a few feeders to see if its this hot stuff or a predator nearby as I have seen the manufacturer say when others complain about no birds. And guess what I only got 15 feet away and robins were already eating but no birds touched the feeders with this stuff in it so I emptied and washed all the other feeders and fill with bird feed and all the birds were back. Birds hate this stuff!

I am just using this now and heard this works great! Can i use it in my chicken feed to deter the squirrels as well?
A resounding Yes! Fun fact, the chili pepper technology was originally designed for use in chicken feed. It was so successful that the wonderful scientists who developed the patent (and were also avid birdwatchers) had the great idea to cross-purpose their patent and apply it to wild bird seed.
