There are many ways to keep squirrels from eating all of your bird food.
The Right Food - Safflower
Safflower is a small, white seed that is high in protein and fat. Many of your favorite birds, including jays, cardinals, chickadees, House Finches, doves, titmice and nuthatches, readily eat safflower, but squirrels typcially do not.
Try an On-Guard™ wire mesh cage around your existing feeders. Our On-Guard solutions are designed to allow smaller birds access but prevent squirrels (and larger birds) from reaching the food in a feeder. Openings are typically 1.5 or 2 inches wide. Orioles, House Finches, and Small Woodpeckers can gain access. Mockingbirds, Jays, Crows & Ravens, Doves & Pigeons are excluded
Seed tube Cages
Seed Cylinder Cage
Place your bird feeding setup at least 8 to 10' away from any tree or building. This keeps squirrels from jumping on top of, or onto, your feeders. Consider any fences, tree branches, or plants that can be used as a launching point.
Try a pole baffle on your bird feeding setup to prevent squirrels from reaching your feeders from below. Mount the baffle 5' from the ground. You can also use a hanging baffle with your feeder tucked below it to deter squirrels from reaching your feeders from above.
Baffle sits on a pole attachment that fits a 1 inch pole diameter
Wrap around Baffles
Baffle wraps around pole and sits on a pole attachment which can accomidate a pole diameter dwon to 0.375 inch. Baffle available in 14in and 18in diameter
