A TIP TO KEEP SQUIRRELS FROM FEEDERS

Hi All This is the first time I have seen this site,

It is less formal than the other sites I have been to.

Anyway, a tip to keep squirrels from the feeders I used to have several squirrels visit the bird feeders and with the resultant damage increasing, I decided to put a stop to this.

The squirrel proof feeders are fine, but it you have 10 or 20 they can be not very cost effective. So putting my thinking cap on, I tried a number of things, but the best I have found is using twine to hang the feeders from.

The squirrels rely on something solid to support themselves on, so using twine to hang the feeders on takes away the support and no more damage (or visitations now) Hope this helps

Thank You for a lovely site Regards Hayden

    My squirrels just bite through the twine and run off with the feeder! I find empty feeders all round the garden weeks after they first vanish!

    Are your bird feeders squirrel proof. I had to buy a hanging caged feeder and it really worked.

    Why not try hanging the feeder from a wire or hook if the string isn’t working.

    If you go into my Amazon shop you will be able to search for caged hanging bird feeders

    Give it a try. It will be worth it. I think we all know it helps the garden birds when we put bird food out – that is unless the squirrels, rooks, pigeons and even partridges don’t get the food.

    The amazon shop is in the right side bar

    I’ve had a lot of trouble with squirrels in the past. The grey squirrel is a pest.
