Here is the perfect answer for keeping deer, squirrels, raccoons, etc. out of your bird seed. There is also no mess left behind since there are no shells. The danger is forgetting to wash your hands if you come into contact with this spicy seed. It is hot, hot, hot! Fortunately, the birds don't taste the spice and will just go on their merry way, eating until satisfied. Mammals, on the other hand, DO NOT like it!
We have been patiently waiting for our seed vendor to get this on the market. They finally have and we are thrilled with the price. A 20lb bag will retail for $38.99 compared to other spicy seed on the market retailing for $55-$60.
