Squirrels love pumpkins!

Were You Aware?

Squirrels love pumpkins, so don’t throw yours away too quickly after Halloween! Consider placing them at the bottom of your garden to attract the wildlife or taking your pumpkins to your local woods or park. Imagine just how many wild animals could be fed with the millions of pumpkins that are bought each year during Halloween and then discarded after the festivities are over! Not just squirrels but birds, hedgehogs, badgers and foxes will all benefit from placing your pumpkins in an accessible area – away from the hustle and bustle of roads. It also helps to keep them fed due to the lack of abundance available for the wildlife during the autumn and winter months.
