Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder
How do you keep squirrels out of the bird feeder? We purchased an attachment for the post to prevent them from going up the pole and they kept knocking it down. Then we purchased a squirrel proof feeder and within one week every squirrel in the neighborhood was having a party at our feeder. They figured out how to put their paws behind the metal leaves that covered the ports. My husband used pliers to curve the leaves so they couldn't get behind them and then the squirrels bent them back out and they nearly destroyed the springs! Needless to say that "squirrel proof" feeder went back to the store!!!!
