New Squirrel-Proof Bird Feeder
by Charlie Nardozzi
Come fall, many gardeners restock the bird feeders to attract a variety of feathered friends to their yards for winter. One of the worst problems with many bird feeders is squirrels stealing the feed. While there are many "squirrel-proof" bird feeders on the market, a new one claims a 100 percent success rate and comes with a guarantee.
The Squirrel Stopper bird feeder features a unique baffle system that won?t allow squirrels to climb the support pole to the feeder. The baffle moves side to side and up and down on three springs. The baffle surface is slippery and shaped like an inverted cone to make it hard for these critters to grab hold. If they do manage to get on the pole, the baffle drops down and shakes them off.
The Squirrel Stopper bird feeder is easy to install and doesn?t necessitate extra tools. Of course, this system requires that you place the bird feeder away from trees, buildings, and other structures that squirrels could use to jump onto the feeder from above.
