Bird feeder deterrent

After so long doing battle with squirrels attacking my bird feeder and trying everything possible, I resorted to doing something less expensive. I simply took packing tape, {sticky side outside} and so far they have not been able to get past it .I have watched it for 2 days and so far the birds are able to eat in peace the squirrels just pick up the seed that falls

    Its funny to see them when they first touch the tape they get all panicky as if they are not able to free themselves from it.

    Good effort but mine jump from tree to tree at the top of the the tree. I would have to tape the whole tree up. :-)
