Area squirrel-feeder should consider shelled peanuts

To the friendly person in our neighbourhood who is feeding unshelled peanuts to the our local squirrels:

To the friendly person in our neighbourhood who is feeding unshelled peanuts to the our local squirrels: we appreciate the pleasure that you receive from feeding our friends in the summer and winter, however the little devils seem to delight in coming over and digging holes in our front and back lawns to hide their treasures, and then re-dig the lawn at their next scheduled meal time.

In future, could you please consider buying shelled peanuts? They have two advantages: the squirrels are much more likely to eat the nuts on your property in full view and enjoyment. In fact, they will actually knock on your door if the shelled nuts are a bit slow coming.

In addition, your neighbours will get a respite from the little guys messing up our lawns all year round.

And for your information, the furry critters also enjoy shelled almonds and other nuts.

Thanks in advance, from all of us (and our lawns) to you.

Dave and Shari Poje
