I am not sure if this is already a topic I did look some but there are so many..Anyway, my problem is that I have a severe PA almost 2 year old who is always into mischief and loves the outdoors..We go out everyday if there is no snow!Several times I have found peanut shells in my yard..I have let my immediate neighbor know of my sons allergy but we have a huge neighborhood...What can i do....I watch him like a hawk ,but, there is always that chance you know....

...there was a Yes Dear show about this about 2 years ago... it played in reruns last week matter of fact! Their 2 yr old is severly PA as is the main character (father). The whole episode was centered around a squirrel that kept bringing them in the yard. It was a funny episode! (and they handled the PA part very well)

We have a pair of birds who have decided our front porch is the place to dine. Their favorite meal - why shelled peanuts of course! No idea where they fly in from and they like to leave me one or two - a tip for cleaning up after them? Things should change when Spring returns - I hope - or, it might be time to get a cat!

Several years ago, I had a neighbor that put them out for the squirrels, the squirrels then bring them everywhere and bury them. Next thing you know there were peanut PLANTS growing in my yard. I forget where I posted but got a response from one group that there had never been a report of allergy from the plant itself (not meaning that it hasn't/couldn't happen I guess) I was watching and peanut plants were growing at the end our street, so I would guess the range of the squirrels was at least 3 foot ball fields, this is a lot of ground to cover when you are looking for the neighbor that is putting out the nuts.
I requested that neighbors not do it anymore and they said "okay, we will finish off the barrel we have and then not buy anymore" LOL so at least they stopped but they really didn't get it.

I tried to reply earlier but can't find where it went!! WE had neighbors using peanuts as feed for the squirrels, they would bring it to our yard and all the way to the end of the street. Not sure what the range is on squirrels, this was probably 3 football field lengths at least. The family said they would stop putting them out when the "barrel" they had was gone, so you can imagine how many there were, the squirrels would bury them in the yard and the plants were growing!!
