Squirrels are notorious for stealing bird seed. Try this treat to lure them to their own table.
Depending on how many squirrels you have and how agressive they are with the bird seed, calculate how much to make. Recipe is given as "parts" rather than specific measurements.
1 part peanut butter (chunky suggested)
1 part dried fruit or raisins (cheap suggested)
1 part shortening (ditto)
4 parts cornmeal (coarse suggested)
Mix. Break off a chunk and rub on a pinecone or right on bark of a tree.
Refrigerate unused. Keeps a long time.
