Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Scott Squirrels won't touch it, but neither will the cardinals or the blue jays
My biggest concern was the squirrels eating this since I have a bunch of them in my yard. The good news is that the squirrels don't want anything to do with it. The bad news is that neither do the cardinals or blue jays. There was a black (grackle or something like that) bird that picked at it once, but that was about it. I live in South Florida and I don't see many small songbirds around, so maybe they would like it more. The price was low so no big deal.

Only birds eat this suet. Squirrels and other mammals are repelled by it. If you want to feed just birds, I recommend the hot pepper suet.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AllyBird This is the best suet.
Squirells don't like it. attracts many birds, they seem to love it. However it does go quickly especially when the bigger birds find.

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 Handywoman Finally, a squirrel free bird food!
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 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.

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.
