Tired of pesky squirrels spoiling the peace around your bird feeder? Instead of being mesmerised by the concept of delicious treats, the birds are only concerned with the looming bushy-tailed peril that could be right around the corner when considering your feeder. Well we have the solution to combat this, and the answer comes in the form of our new squirrel proof bird feeders.
Whilst squirrels are often regarded as soft, cute creatures, and indeed sometimes offer a welcome addition to the charming picture a busy bird feeder can help paint; but they can also cause birders a considerable amount of stress.
Common Squirrel Traits
● Voracious in nature, they will consume large amounts of newly purchased seed.
● Defend feeders like territory, scaring away birds and other wildlife.
● Damage feeders, as they attempt to get at the food , slashing with claws and teeth.
● Ability to leap and climb allows squirrels easy access to feeders placed in trees.
So, with your bird-feeding environment in the hands of these little fellows, how do our squirrel proof bird feeders put you back in control?
The real key to keeping squirrels at bay is in the design of the feeder or bird table. Our squirrel-proof feeders are available in a range of styles and are all complete with working anti-squirrel measures.
With our stainless steel and aluminium options, there’s no chance of a squirrel breaking through and damaging the feeder. Similarly, we have a range of spherical and cube shaped cages that are specifically designed to allow room for birds to snap up seeds, but with bars angled so that squirrels cannot penetrate them.
Lastly, we have flockers, which use a mechanism that cleverly hides the seed under metal sliders the moment a squirrel’s weight is applied to the feeder.
Our feeders will not only provide a practical addition to your scene, but will also blend seamlessly with your garden furniture and the stylistic nuances already helping to make your garden environment a better place.
With all these options available from Bird Feeders 4 Less, there’s no need to let squirrels in on the harmonious seed empire your garden or birding location could be.
