    What are Monkey Nuts?

    Monkey nuts for squirrels typically refer to peanuts in shells. Squirrels are fond of peanuts due to their high fat and protein content, which provides them with essential nutrients and energy.

    They can be offered to squirrels in backyard feeding stations, parks, or other areas where squirrels are commonly found. Providing monkey nuts for squirrels can be a way for people to interact with and observe these animals while also supporting their dietary needs.

    Nutritional benefits of Monkey Nuts

    A vital component of the Squirrels diet is protein, as this helps muscle development and overall bodily maintenance, Monkey Nuts are rich in protein so they are a great addition to their diet.

    The healthy fat found in Monkey Nuts provides energy that is invaluable for sustaining bodily functions, regulating body temperature, and fuelling physical activities for both squirrels and humans.

    How to feed Squirrels Monkey Nuts

    Select a suitable location in your yard or garden where squirrels are known to frequent. This could be near a tree, fence, or a squirrel feeder if you have one.

    Provide whole monkey nuts in their shells rather than shelled peanuts. This allows squirrels to exhibit their natural foraging behaviour and helps keep the nuts fresher for longer.

    You can offer monkey nuts in a dedicated squirrel feeder or scatter them on the ground. If using a feeder, choose one with openings large enough for squirrels to access the nuts but small enough to prevent larger birds or pests from getting in.

    Be mindful not to overfeed squirrels. While monkey nuts are nutritious, they should be offered as part of a balanced diet. Providing too many nuts can lead to dependency on human-provided food and may disrupt squirrels' natural foraging behaviours.

    Alongside monkey nuts, consider offering a variety of other squirrel-friendly foods such as seeds, fruits, Kibbled peanuts and vegetables. This helps provide a diverse and nutritious diet for the squirrels.

    Regularly clean the feeding area to prevent the buildup of mold, bacteria, or pests. Discard any leftover monkey nuts that appear spoiled or have been in contact with contaminants.

    Can Wild birds eat Monkey Nuts?

    Yes, wild birds can eat monkey nuts (peanuts in shell), but it's essential to offer them in moderation with a range of other bird seeds. Plain, unsalted monkey nuts are the safest option for wild birds. Salted or flavoured nuts may contain additives that are harmful to garden birds.

    If you leave the Monkey Nuts in the shell for birds, they are able to naturally forage for the food. Birds such as blue tits, magpies and crows will snack and chip away at the shell of a Monkey Nut.

    How to feed birds Monkey Nuts?

    Opt for a peanut bird feeder. These types of feeders are considerably bigger to fit in this food.

    If you're feeling creative, you can hang the nuts on a string and and watch birds hang whilst trying to chip away at the nuts.
