          Bird seed is "cheap" and effective too. Ask anyone who try's to feed "song-birds" !

              I usually feed them corn in my yard during cold weather. Lately, I can't keep the little thieves out of my dog pans, I think they're eating more dog food than my hounds.

                Sunflower seeds and bird feed are cheap sources of squirrel fodder.

                  Just basically act like you are trying to attract songbirds aka seeds and feeders.

                        I put out pecans and bird seed to attract birds and squirels.

                          If you can get a bushel of ear corn... that is great and will last a while. Bee and Clay are right on with sunflower seeds too. The sunflower seeds are more expensive but also bring in the cardinals and blue jays. You can put big finishing nails in a tree and just slide an ear of corn on the nail... they will come!

                            Create the habitat and the squirrels will come. Nest boxes and food (birdseed works fine) are a good way to start. More long-term solutions involve protecting mast producing trees from being eaten by deer when they are small (put up a deer exclosure), girdling low timber value trees to kill them (dead trees attract insects, insects attract wood peckers, wood peckers make holes in trees for squirrels to live) and providing cover from predators (stone piles/walls, and brush piles do this quite nicely).

                              Put up a bird feeder with some sunflower seed in it and on the ground below. They will come in for it.
