So, your neighbor says there's no way to keep squirrels out of your feeder, huh? Perhaps
they have not studied some of effective devices created by good old Yankee ingenuity. If
your feeder positioning is well planned you should thwart the squirrels from your feeders.
We've had quite a bit of success with several baffles from Erva Tool - the key to their
effectiveness in foiling squirrels from ravishing your feeder is: placement.
You need to allow the proper clearance from the ground, trees, fences, or decks to stop
For example, if a feeder is pole-mounted, a "can-baffle" located immediately
under the feeder is only effective if it's at least 4'-3" off the ground, and 10-12
feet away from other leaping points (trees, fences, decks, buildings). Large "disc
baffles" should have a minimum of 4 feet of clearance.
To help illustrate the point please review this dandy sketch:
See? It simply requires matching the right equipment to your habitat. For
