Squirrel Free products contain only natural, food
grade seeds and chili peppers. However, chili peppers taste hot to
mammals (squirrels, rabbits, mice, deer, people, etc.) and are also
a temporary irritant. This is the main reason why we recommend not
allowing children to handle this product. No permanent physical
damage will result even if you get pepper directly in your eyes, or
on your skin.
If one uses care when handling our products,
no discomfort should result. We do recommend rubber gloves be worn
and that you always position yourself upwind when filling your
feeder or mixing with our Seed Saver products. You should always
wash your hands and gloves after handling Squirrel Free products.
Always fill your feeder below eye level.
If you happen to
experience a burning sensation after coming in contact with chili
peppers, the effects are temporary. Even if you do nothing, the
sensations will go away, usually in 15 to 30 minutes. Washing
immediately with soap and water will speed up your recovery. Adding
no tears baby shampoo to water used to flush your eyes can also be
helpful. If problems persist, you should call your physician.
Pepper Treat chili pepper technology is designed to utilize
Mother Nature’s approach to discouraging small mammals from eating.
The main use for the ingredients of Pepper Treat is still as a
flavor enhancer used in everyday cooking. There are no synthetic or
toxic chemicals used. All ingredients are food
