Protective Squirrel Houses from Recycled Tires
Squirrels do a pretty good job of building a nest without the use of any tools, they cut branches with their teeth and weave them together, using the leaves as shingles to help keep out the rain.
But there are fewer and fewer hollow trees, the result of clearing land for urban communities. Loss of habitat for nesting forces squirrels to build a leaf nest.
Leaf NestsLeaf nests do not provide squirrels the protection from their enemies, Raccoons, Hawks, Owls that a man-made squirrel house can.
First there were bird houses...now SQUIRREL HousesSquirrel houses made from recycled rubber tires can help provide them with the protection they need, a Hawk or Owl can't get inside and a Raccoon will find it a lot harder to raid a house with a small opening not to mention the fact it is hanging under a branch with a flap above the entrance.
The young baby squirrels will stay protected and dry because the design of our squirrel house repels the rain, but just in case some moisture would get inside, there is a drain provided at the bottom. Since the baby squirrels will have to crawl up to get out of the house, there will be far fewer baby squirrels falling from this squirrel house than a leaf nest. This explains why a mother squirrel will often move her young into our squirrel house not long after it is hung.
