Squirrels! Fun to Watch but Not When They Are Raiding Your Bird Feeders

Without a doubt, squirrels can be a major problem when it comes to wild bird feeding.

Any bird feeders placed on a squirrel proof bird feeder pole are squirrel proofed by the pole; a bird feeder hung on a tree or suspended wire can also be made squirrel proof with the right design and location; or, you can choose from a selection of uniquely patented feeders like the Squirrel Buster™ brand of squirrel proof bird feeders.

Backyard Birds offers solutions for helping you squirrel-proof your backyard wild bird feeders from mother-nature’s most tenacious little acrobats – from squirrel-proof bird feeders to adding baffles to your existing bird feeders to helping you with the right mounting and placement – the birding experts at Backyard Birds can help make your backyard a haven for wild birds all year long.

Baffles & Weather Guards

Bird feeder baffles are categorized by their size and function, and are large enough to block squirrels when hung above bird feeders. Large squirrel baffles with hanging feeder mounts help defend against both squirrels and weather at the same time. Dome hanging baffles serve as a smaller bird feeder weather guard that gives protection from rain and snow.

If bird seed gets wet, it can become fouled and birds instinctively will not eat it in this condition. Weather guards have an added benefit of not only allowing birds to feed in all types of weather, but all year round as well!

Bird Feeder Poles

Bird feeder poles are designed to automatically block squirrels from climbing up. There are different styles that have very effective solutions. The bird feeder pole systems are offered in many choices and variations to meet your birding needs. We can help you select which one is just right for your backyard birds and help you determine the right location for your new bird feeder pole.

Squirrel-Proof Bird Feeders

The best squirrel stopper defense is a good offense. Squirrel Buster™ brand of squirrel proof bird feeders have come to be recognized as the leaders in the squirrel proof category.  All Squirrel Buster feeders work the same way. When a squirrel lands on a Squirrel Buster, its weight automatically closes the seed ports, denying access to the seed but not harming the squirrels in any way.
