What the...

My rating is tbd, here’s why.
I’m less than 6 hours in to this regimen. So far, no squirrels and no birds.
I’ve read other responses from the company about giving the birds a chance to adjust to the color change so I’m being patient.
But here’s my experience. I mixed the sauce wearing gardening gloves and literally had my hands on fire for at least 5 hours. Is the necessity to wear impermeable gloves on the instructions or website? Maybe, but it is NOT prominent on the bottle. I HAVE NEVER FELT SUCH INTENSE PAIN IN MY LIFE.
In retrospect, I noticed the company video shows the sauce being mixed by a person stirring the sauce with a wooden spoon wearing latex gloves. I did not see this advice on the bottle NOR WAS IT MENTIONED IN THE VIDEO. I only noticed the subtleties while soaking my hands in ice milk watching the video after more than 4 hours of INTENSE pain. I can not over emphasize the pain intensity.
I don’t know if this works. Apparently I need to wait a few weeks to determine.
But it will burn the bee jeezus out of you for 4-5 hours if not properly protected. And IMHO, that fact needs a GREATER EMPHASIS! As in the first line on the label. As in a big fat warning on the bottle. As in being packaged with a measuring cup, gloves, and warning label because NO ONE needs to feel this intensity of pain (not even squirrels).

We are sorry to hear that you had a less than perfect experience with our product. Everyone here at Cole's knows first hand how uncomfortable handling something hot & spicy can be if you're not wearing gloves, so we feel your pain. Because chilies are a known irritant and can sting a little when coming in contact with bare skin (like cooking with jalapenos at home) there is a very prominent warning block highlighted in yellow and outlined in red on every bottle. We also have a link on our website that details precautions for handling all of our 'hot' products: https://coleswildbird.com/hot-products-safety-information/. Fortunately, any irritation is only temporary and causes no permanent damage. To speed up your relief you can put sour cream, yogurt, milk, or a cool compress on the affected skin. If you accidentally rub your eyes before you wash your hands, flush your eyes with a little no-tears baby shampoo mixed with water and add a cold compress if needed.

I've got a Yankeeflipper bird feeder and I think the squirrels actually enjoy getting flipped off the feeder. They manage to get two sunflower seeds per flip. Guess its like Six Flags for squirrels! Saw the great reviews and thought I'd give it a try. No luck they are still getting at the feeder. I mixed up a super potent batch of Coles with the sunflower seeds and put it on the ground by the feeder. About 4 squirrels came out to feast and they were not fazed at all. They enjoyed their snack! Don't know if I'm doing something wrong but it did not work. The birds do like it however

Thank you your feedback. We'd love for you to contact us directly (Sindy@Coleswildbird.com) so that we may assist you in improving your experience with Flaming Squirrel Seed Sauce. It is important to know that Chilies are not repellents. All of our "hot" products are based on taste preferences, so 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. 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. As always though, if you are unhappy with the performance of any of our products we will be glad to facilitate a refund or exchange.

Definitely Works

I used to literally fight off "RAMBO" type squirrels on this here range on the regular. I even filmed these critters climbing strategically placed feeders hanging with one foot just to rob my feeders. It got to the point of chasing them with brooms and them chasing me back into the house. UNREAL IT WAS. UNTIL I FOUND THIS STUFF. When I say works like a charm... whoeeeee dogggy!!! Them there cow pokes hit the road and ain't been back since. They figured it out real quick... Ya see they smart but they ain't STUPID. THANK YA COLE's from the bottom of my saddle

No squirrels

No squirrels but lots of birds. Oddly the cottontail bunnies love it but marsh rabbits leave it alone. Unfortunately mice eat it.

I ruined 30 pounds of seed

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.

Love it!

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...

It Works!

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!

Thank You!

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!

Finally rid of the vermin lol

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!
