Collection: Squirrel Proof Bird Feeders Collection

Discover the incredible advantages of incorporating a squirrel-proof bird feeder into your garden. If you're an avid bird feeder, you've likely encountered the presence of squirrels, who often snatch away food and even wreak havoc on plastic feeders. While some may attempt to appease them with dedicated squirrel feeders filled with peanuts, it often falls short. So, what's the solution? Embrace a squirrel-resistant bird feeder as your next line of defence!

Anti-Squirrel bird feeders

Choose a squirrel-resistant bird feeder from a diverse range of options available. Our feeders vary in shapes and sizes, with some featuring protective cages that prevent squirrels from accessing the seed reserves. The most a squirrel can do is nibble at the feeder cage itself, discouraging them from obtaining the food. Over time, the squirrel will likely search for alternative sources of nourishment. 

Squirrel Resistant Bird Feeders

Alternatively, squirrel-resistant feeders without cages may not prevent squirrels from nibbling on the food, but they are typically constructed using materials like stainless steel or powder-coated steel, effectively eliminating any damage caused.

  • Where should I place my squirrel proof feeder?

    Position your squirrel proof bird feeders at least 10 feet away from trees, fences, or any structures that squirrels can use as launching pads. Ideally, bird feeders should be placed on a smooth, tall pole with a squirrel baffle, making it more challenging for squirrels to climb.

    Squirrel Deterrent Spray

    Our Hot Nuts Squirrel Deterrent Spray is a ready-to-use, natural, and humane repellent that can be applied to bird tables, nut feeders, and suet balls. The spray's spicy scent and taste will deter squirrels without harming them or your garden birds.

  • Spicy Seed Mixes:

    Some bird food blends are treated with hot pepper extract, like our hot pepper suet cake, which is unpalatable to squirrels but doesn't affect birds. Experimenting with spicy seed mixes can be another way to deter squirrels.

  • Feeding domes:

    Feeding domes like our Squirrel Proof Ground Feeding Dome provide a protective barrier for ground-feeding birds. These domes are designed to prevent squirrels and larger birds from accessing the feed while allowing smaller garden birds to feed in peace.
