Squirrel housing/Re-housing tips.

Alright, so you have visitors in your garden

and you'd like to do more for your local critters?

Not to worry, we got you covered.

There are many types of designs for pre-built

squirrel houses you can get but

here are the important notes:

The house needs at least 2 holes, one main door

and one escape door in case of predators.

The house needs to be facing north, to avoid direct sunlight,

you don't want to cook the babies in the summer.

It needs to be at least 3 meters above ground, or 10 feet.

Minimum hole size:

6cm/2,5in to a maximum of 10cm/4in wide.

If you are trying to rehome the squirrels from the attic or roof

of your house, here's what you do.

Place the new squirrel house in the tree closet to your house.

Fill it with hay and hazelnuts in shells.

By the time they're done with all the hazelnuts,

they should have realized that this new house,

is much better than living on top of noisy humans.

It might take them a couple of months to relocate completely.
