Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SoccerDad Squirrel-Proof, Birds Love It
After several weeks battling with squirrels, I discovered that birds are not affected by hot pepper while mammals will experience the full effects. This is the ONLY suet cake I will use!
The Home Depot price is also super competitive, maybe 1/3 of what you can find online.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SusanS Best suet we've ever had
My sister says her birds will eat no other suet. We love it because the squirrels leave it alone for the birds to eat. Lasts longer than non hot suet yet the birds are at the feeder everyday, all day.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ck40711 Good suet. . . . but there is a better cheaper one out there!
This is a very good suet, that the birds seem to like. If you have squirrels that can get to your suet cage, then this is the product you want because the squirrels will leave it alone. From that standpoint it earner 5 stars from me. However if you want a suet that attracts more birds, go buy the Royal Wings Orange No Melt Suet from Tractor Supply. It is cheaper and the birds like it better than this hot pepper one.

I have been using these hot pepper suet cakes in my three hanging basket containers, two per cage, for at least two years. The birds love them and the squirrels leave them alone. This is a great product, reasonably priced. Home Depot is the only local provider I have been able to find.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NatureLover HURRAH SQUIRRELS DON"T
After mixing dry hot pepper with the bird seed to deter squirrels from raiding and chewing thru my bird feeders I thought i would try this pepper suet! Birds fight over it,they LOVE it! !!ave never seen birds fight over any other suet I have put out for them and this is late Spring. So can imagine the fighting I will have this winter over it. And have not had one squirrel come around, not even to sample seeds that have fallen to ground. Bit pricey I feel as can get other suet at another store for much less. But in the long run well worth the price if it keeps squirrels away and the birds love it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Toni C & S Hot Pepper Suet
For years, I looked for ways to keep squirrels from the bird seeds, even the battery operated spinning bird feeder didn't work! Finally, a pet store told me to try Hot Pepper Suet stating squirrels won't go near it. Well my squirrels not only came near it, they actually took a bite...but it was their last bite. Their little tongues got so hot, they actually licked my glass outdoor table trying to cool if off and after 7 years, they have never touched it again. The birds love the suet and year round, I get to see a variety of birds and beautiful colors. My family loves to sit and watch nature at its finest. I wish I could find coupons cause after so many purchases, it gets expensive.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reese Keeps Squirrels Off!
I've used this product for years now and only once have seen ONE squirrel eat it for a few weeks. He/She must have had some special immune system or was totally starving. Home Depot is the ONLY place I have found with reasonable prices. Southern States charges around $2.50 a cake. Tractor Supply no longer carries it. Lowe's no longer carries it. It's expensive online or you have to pay shipping. I use year round with no problem. All birds, except finches, love this suet. Since there's no Home Depot in our town, I buy it when I travel near a Home Depot--buying the entire lot in a store. I don't know about other brands, but this definitely works!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by katwicki Best suet to keep away the squirrels.
The birds love this suet. Attracts all types and alot of woodpeckers too. The squirrels won't touch it because of the cayenne pepper.
