Unfortunately, birds aren't going to be the only wildlife that spots and devours the bird food you put out! Squirrels are notorious for chewing and clawing through plastic bird feeders to get to the treats inside. Choose one of our squirrel-proof feeders if you want to prevent this, or if you have noticed squirrels stealing food from your existing bird feeder.
Squirrels may be becoming an issue in your garden, especially if your feeders hang from tree branches, or if you’re using a ground feeder. Squirrels can jump between 5-6ft high, so it is worth investing in a squirrel proof feeder, instead of alternating the position and height of your feeder. The feeders featured on this page are designed to prevent squirrels from being able to access the food in your feeders through protective guards. Alternatively, squirrel baffles are another great way to stop squirrels from reaching your bird feeders.

Although most bird varieties tend to share bird feeders happily, squirrels are known to scare off other animals and chase them away. Therefore, discouraging your garden birds from visiting to feed again. Not to mention the excess cost from greedy squirrels gobbling up all of your bird food!
