Nuts About Squirrels

The place to find nesting boxes, feeders, gifts and more!

Nuts About Squirrels is the place to find rehabber approved nesting boxes, feeders for squirrels, birds and other wildlife as well as lots of gift items for squirrel lovers.

There's less than a month left to get guaranteed holiday delivery for a squirrel house or feeder for Christmas. Don't wait until the last minute because items sell out quickly and once we hit December they might not go back in stock until January. December 10th is the last day we take orders for houses and feeders.

I love my new squirrel house and I love NutsAboutSkwerls! It is constructed with detail and quality and arrived within a week! I just got it up and don't have a resident just yet but I know they are out there as they love the water bucket as seen on camera and are at a higher elevation in the tree. Thank you so much!

These Squirrel nesting boxes are absolutely beautiful! They look like squirrel condos! They appear to be very safe, they have a guarded door, a porch and are very sturdy. You will not find a better quality nesting box/condo anywhere. The craftsmanship alone is enough to tell you the builder cares about what he is doing.

I ordered 4 boxes and they are really sturdy and great quality! They are bigger than I thought (which is awesome)! I will definitely be ordering more of these in the near future.

Zoomie, our rescued squirrel loves is box. After a slow release he is outside on our maple tree. It took him four days to accept the box in his pre-release cage. Very well made sturdy nestbox. Thanks!

After rescuing a baby squirrel and seeking help from a rehabber I decided to use my degree in Industrial Design to create products for these wonderful little critters.
