Squirrel-Proof Bird Feeders
If you’re a birder who is sick of the nuisance of a squirrel scaring away birds from feeding in your backyard, eating all the birdseed in the feeder or even destroying your bird feeders, invest in a squirrel-proof bird feeder or baffle. Some of our squirrel-proof feeders have a wire cage around the feeder, preventing the larger squirrels from entering, but allowing small birds to access the bird seed. Wild Beaks also carries squirrel-proof feeders, which have a lifetime guarantee against squirrel damage.
Squirrel Baffles for Bird Feeders
Prevent squirrels from reaching your bird feeders with a movable squirrel baffle. The baffles move and tilts when a squirrel jumps or climbs on them, throwing off the squirrel’s balance and protecting the seed. You can attach squirrel baffles for bird feeders to the top or bottom of a feeder and to shepherd poles and 4x4 wood supports.
In addition to squirrel-proof feeders and baffles as a deterrent, you also want to discourage squirrels from reaching the bird feeders by placing your feeder an appropriate distance away from a launching pad. Keep the feeders more than 10 feet away from houses, fences, trees and other jumping points to prevent squirrels from leaping off onto the feeder.
