Best squirrel proof feeder

Rate this topic

33 posts in this topic

I know more that a few guys here enjoy feeding birds, but wage a never ending battle matching wits with squirrels.

I've tried all the supposed squirrel proof feeders out there, and all failed. Some miserably.

But this one is the best. Made by Brome. The squirrels try it once, maybe twice and never return.  We like it so much, we bought two.

How does this one work ?

If you were looking to get rid of the electric one I would be interested....

You'd want to buy that piece of junk? :eek:

This is the super squirrel proof feeder I spent $140 on. Made by Wild Bill. Please note the squirrel is actually inside the feeder.

lol I remember you were having issues with it

when you had a fresh battery in it and you touched it , did it ever give you a decent "wap" ?   Mine will make my eyes blink and the sting you would remember.....

I'll tell you what.  I'm battling it out with Wild Bill trying to get my money back. I doubt they'll acquiesce.  Should that be the case, it's yours.

I just use a regular feeder with a very simple but effective pole guard.

Wouldn't work for me. They launch themselves off the roof of the house, off tree limbs and anything they can find.

I switched to safflower seed and thistle 25 years ago and haven’t had a squirrel problem since. Squirrels don’t like safflower even though most songbirds do. They don’t bother with my thistle feeders. Could even put out a suet cage for even greater coverage of bird species. This system really works.
