Local Squirrels Are Getting Hammered On Nuts At These Squirrel Saloons

It’s no secret that many people perceive squirrels as backyard pests. However, there are also a few homeowners who consider them as pets. Although these furry rodents generally belong to the wild, there’s still a way for you to feed them and care for them even without letting them into your home. For starters, you can get one of these picnic tables where you can place some treats for these critters to feast on. But if you’re looking for something more fun and accommodating, then these squirrel saloons are exactly what you need!

As the name suggests, these unique feeders look just like mini pubs built especially for backyard critters. They’re typically made of durable wood like pine, oak and cedar and coated with a weatherproof sealant to make them suitable for outdoor use. There are actually quite a number of sellers on Etsy that offer these saloon-inspired feeders, so you have plenty of designs to choose from.

These squirrel saloon feeders are a great way to feed backyard critters from afar

These feeders usually feature a compartment that you can fill with corn, nuts, seeds and other treats to serve your furry patrons. The compartment features a hinged lid which allows for easy filling and protects the treats from dust or rain. It also comes with a plexiglass panel, so you can easily monitor the content inside and know when it’s time for a refill.

A slight opening lies between the panel and the table, so the treats are dispensed in a regulated manner. There are also seats that your backyard friends can perch on as they munch on some tasty treats. On top of that, some designs even feature miniature wooden beer mugs, beer bottles, kegs and rifles to complete the look.

As with any dining establishment, these mini saloons also come with eye-catching signs

And the best part? Most, if not all, these sellers offer customization. So, you can have the signs display your own name or any quirky “business name” you can think of. The feeders typically measure 10 to 17″ tall, 6 to 11″ wide and 4.75 to 10″ deep—depending on the design and the seller. Most also come with holes, so you can easily mount them onto trees, fences or walls.
