Peanuts: Substandard Squirrel Food?
Peanuts, which are not native to North America, are not natural squirrel food. Peanuts aren't even nuts--they're beans! They are lacking in certain nutrients, and their flimsy shells don't make them good for hoarding. As an alternative, give out hazelnuts, also known as filberts, still in the shell. They are acorn-sized, have a sturdy shell that holds up well with hoarding (and in your pocket), and squirrels love them! Commercial hazelnuts are closely related to the ones that grow wild in the woods of the eastern U.S., so it's a type of food that squirrels have evolved with.
There are squirrel feeders and other devices designed to keep squirrels occupied on the market these days. I've noticed that most of them give out peanuts, or have an ear of dried corn available. Dried corn or peanuts are not "bad" per se. But if you are going to make a squirrel perform for you, it seems only fair that you give them something decent to eat in return!
Note: This is not to suggest that other types of food won't work. Filberts can sometimes be expensive, and roasted, unsalted peanuts are usually more affordable.
While ordinary roasted peanuts aren't the greatest squirrel food, raw peanuts may be downright harmful! The following is reprinted with permission from IN A NUTSHELL, the official newletter of the Squirrel Lovers' Club:
Note: This is still much disagreement about the following information.
In the last issue of this newsletter, I printed a letter that appeared in the FORUM section of National Geographic Magazine, March 1996 claiming that raw peanuts are dangerous and possibly fatal if fed to squirrels.Read more ›

I will never buy this again. It came infested with the larvae of food moths which eventually hatched. Read morePublished 23 days ago by Wyf of Bath
The peanuts are a little smaller than I'm used to seeing and the husks on the nuts do not shed easily making them a little less appetizing for the birds and squirrels.Published 17 months ago by W. Derr
We now have 3 squirrels who wait on our deck for their breakfast. They practically knock on the window to get our attention. These are very good quality peanuts!Published on January 14, 2014 by Stacy Lancaster
