Our chipmunks and squirrels have become happy (and complacent?) on our deck, eating gifts of peanuts (shelled and unshelled).
Despite my husband’s fears of our squirrel’s imminent starvation, they eat enough peanuts to empty both feeders every week or so.
Ha – that’s hilarious (about your trash can). See if you would just put the peanuts out in easy reach like we do, you wouldn’t have any issues with them trying to chew a hole through your trash can. =)
Starvation? Squirrels? I dare say not. They chewed a hole through my heavy duty trash can lid (and I mean, it was heavy duty!) to get to my grain for the sheep. Tell The Boy they are not starving…
