Add a Squirrel Baffle to Save Seed and Money!

If you’re tired of pesky squirrels raiding bird feeders, stealing seed, and making messes, it might be a good time to invest a few bucks in a squirrel baffle.

When used properly, baffles really work in deterring squirrels and keeping them out of feeders.  They’re available in hanging styles, pole-mount, or even post-mounted styles too.  So, no matter what type of feeder you may be using, there is a baffle to accommodate it.

The one thing to remember is feeder placement, as squirrels can jump like crazy! If your feeder is pole, or post mounted, the bottom of the baffle should be at least 4 feet from the ground.  If you have a hanging bird feeder, squirrel’s horizontal jumping can thwart your efforts if the feeder is not placed at lesquirrel baffleast 8 feet away from any possible “launch spot”.

This goes for pole mounted feeders too.  Remember, squirrels can jump high and sideways! Place all feeders with baffles far enough away from any possible “launch site” and you’ll achieve success at deterring squirrels from feeders.
