How do all of you prevent squirrels from infiltrating bird feeders? I thought I had them good when I used some duct ends that had curves where they would fall off, which they did initially. Now they grew a brain and figured it out. Any pictures you can offer on your setups? I want to put some bird feeders out, but anything connected to the garage/house or any infrastructure is considered a failure.

Thank you!

I took a piece of six inch stove pipe and made a piece of wood that fit the diameter. Screwed that into the top of the piece and put it around the 3/4 inch pipe that I hold the bird feeder up with. Hung the stove pipe at the top just below the feeder. No squirrels have figured out how to get around it.

i use tall shepherds hooks then install those cones flanges, kinda like the ones you put on dogs necks to prevent them from licking or chewing areas. you can get them at fleet farm for about 17 bucks...

you install them as high up on the hook below the feeder you can. but the thing is you have to have that shepherds hook to where they can't jump from a limb or any object to get on top. so you have to place them in the open etc...

it works as i have multiple feeders with this set up and no tree rats...

then i also live trap the tree rats constantly & relocate them to the river/woods...
