Wakefield Peanut Munch Box Feeder

Wakefield premium squirrel feeders are hand-crafted in the USA and made of only the finest, sustainably-grown Eastern White Pine Wood. Eastern White Pine is an ideal material for squirrel feeders because it is light in weight and easy to hang.

Many people enjoy feeding and observing the squirrels in their backyard, as they are well-known for providing hours of entertainment through their silly antics throughout the day. It is also a great way to help prevent the squirrels from eating out of your bird feeders. The Wakefield Peanut Box Feeder is a great way to train your squirrels to continually return to the same food source. We highly recommend filling your peanut feeder with Wakefield Virginia Peanuts, as they are a favorite amongst many different types of squirrels and birds, making them the perfect attractant for getting and keeping animals in your yard.

To best train the squirrels to use the squirrel feeder, prop the lid open with a peanut and squirrels will quickly learn to lift the lid, sit on the shelf and consume the peanuts. The lid also provides great protection from the wind and elements, keeping the peanuts fresh and dry. Squirrels have an amazing sense of hearing and are able to view the peanuts through the plexiglass front, so they always know when there's a meal to be had. Squirrels have two peak times of activity during the day: early morning and mid-afternoon. During the winter they are most active around noontime.

This squirrel munch box can easily be mounted to a tree, fence or post by nail. The dimensions of this feeder are 10"H x 5.5"W x 11"D.

Each Wakefield Squirrel Feeder is constructed to last and includes a brochure that describes the species, placement and maintenance of the squirrel feeder.

All About The Squirrels

Squirrels live in various forests, preferring hardwoods or mixed woods, especially those with nut trees.

This little fellow is a year-round resident seen mostly in the morning and evening in the yard. Most squirrels feed primarily on nuts, especially peanuts, hickory nuts, acorns, beech nuts and walnuts. They also like fruit, maple seeds, tulip tree seeds and corn as well.

Experience The Feeding Frenzy

Peanuts + Squirrels

Squirrels are one of the most popular backyard animals to feed and are well-known for providing hours of entertainment through their silly antics throughout the day. Put some Wakefield peanuts in your feeder and enjoy watching the feeding frenzy that ensues!

Peanuts are a high energy food source packed with protein and essential fatty acids. They are a great supplement to squirrel diets and are perfect post-rut when they are worn down and need to pack on some weight.

And did you know...

  • Squirrels have very acute senses. Their vision enables one squirrel to distinguish another from 50 feet away.
  • Squirrels have two peak times of activity during the day: early morning and mid-afternoon. In the winter they are active around noontime.
  • Squirrels can bury up to 25 nuts an hour. This is a communal activity with squirrels in the area benefiting from the buried food supply.
  • A squirrel will eat its entire body weight in food each week (1 to 1-1/2 lbs).

Keep Squirrels Out of Your Bird Feeder

No one likes it when those pesky squirrels steal all the food from the bird feeder and chase away the other animals. Giving squirrels their own dedicated feeder on the opposite side of the yard from the birdfeeders can help keep them away.

Placing a bird feeder in a tree is like inviting the squirrel to lunch. A squirrel can jump 6 feet vertically, can jump across 8 feet from one tree to another, and can climb up almost any surface except glass. So to keep them from the birdseed, place a birdfeeder away from trees and other surfaces the squirrel can climb. A pole in the middle of the yard, with a squirrel baffle on the pole and a bird feeder designed to discourage the squirrels, is about as squirrel-resistant as you can get. Then put a few Wakefield squirrel houses and squirrel feeders in the trees some distance from the bird feeding area, and you will enjoy all varieties of wildlife in your backyard. Feeding the squirrels year round helps to keep the out of the garden as well.
