If you feed the birds, squirrels are probably (although not always) the bane of your life. They not only steal the food, they will probably destroy feeders also if they are made of plastic. Some people try to satiate them by giving them their own peanuts in a squirrel feeder, but it’s never enough. So what’s the next step? Battle tactics! Bird feeders squirrel proof.
Select a squirrel resistant bird feeder. They come in all shapes and sizes. Some have protective cages and the best a squirrel can do is nibble away at the cage itself as they are unable to gain access to the seed reserves. After a while, the squirrel will look elsewhere for its daily nourishment. Squirrel resistant feeders without cages won’t stop them from nibbling away at food, but they will eliminate damage as, they’re often made from stainless steel or powder-coated steel.
