Squirrel Proof Bird Feeders
Oftentimes, even when you have the perfect birdhouse for your yard you can't prevent the squirrels from getting in and stealing all the food. The perfect solution is to either buy a squirrel-proof bird feeder or to add squirrel-proof features to your existing bird feeder. Squirrel proof bird feeders come with built-in features to ensure that birds are the only animals getting in. Squirrel proof bird feeders have pieces of metal over the holes to prevent squirrels from getting in - while still providing enough space for birds to access food. Another type of squirrel proof bird feeder comes with a cone design on the top. This cone shape causes squirrels to slide off, preventing them from entering the feeder. If you are looking for a more secure form of squirrel proof bird feeder, choose one with rotating pipes - which knocks squirrels off but allows birds to fly in freely.
