Lately, many customers have sought help in keeping squirrels (and sometimes other animals) from emptying their feeders at great speed. There are a number of ways to keep squirrels from devouring all of your bird food.
Even if you enjoy squirrels' antics, they are persistent and creative food seekers.
Squirrel-averse foods - Hot Peppers and Safflower
On-Guard Wire Cages
Try an On-Guard™ wire mesh cage around your existing feeders. Our On-Guard solutions are designed to allow smaller birds access to your food, but they prevent squirrels (and larger birds) from reaching food in a feeder. We have cages that fit our Dinner Bell feeders and tube feeders and we have several specialty feeders with built-in cages.
Place your bird feeding setup at least 10' away from any tree or building by using a pole system if needed. This keeps squirrels from jumping on top of, or onto, your feeders. Come see some options that are possible using our APS pole system.
Baffles and Domes
Protect your seed bounty from squirrels with our Eliminator. When a squirrel touches the perch ring, its weight closes the seed ports, foiling its seed-stealing plot. The Eliminator's unique technology allows you to set the sensitivity level, so you can also exclude large birds such as pigeons or doves.
It's easy to hang, holds three and a half quarts of seed and is backed with a limited lifetime guarantee. This feeder also features a special seed ventilation system that helps keep seed fresher.
The Eliminator can be disassembled and assembled with no tools, and all of its parts are top shelf dishwasher safe.
