Squirrel Proof Bird Feeders

4 products

    Squirrels are notorious when it comes to stealing bird food from bird feeders. Their antics and persistent determination often leave bird feeders depleted.

    Our Squirrel proof feeders are designed to deter Squirrels, and some larger birds, from stealing the food by making it harder for them to access. With caged feeders and a strong and durable design - these are the perfect way to make sure only smaller birds have access to the bird feeder so that they can feed freely.

    In addition to their squirrel proof design, our feeders are also easy to clean and maintain, ensuring a hygienic feeding environment to attract wild birds. Plus, they come in a variety of styles and sizes to suit your garden or backyard aesthetic.

    With our grey squirrels proof feeders, you can enjoy the sights and sounds of your favourite garden birds whilst keeping squirrels at bay.

    The Best Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder For Your Garden

    Picking the best feeder for your outside space depends on the size of the space and the wild birds you are looking to attract. Selecting the perfect feeder for your outdoor space involves considering various factors, including the size of your space and the specific wild birds you wish to attract. Our comprehensive range of squirrel proof bird feeders offers options tailored to meet your unique needs and preferences.

    When choosing the best feeder for your garden, it's essential to assess the dimensions of your outdoor space.

    For smaller gardens or balconies, compact feeders with innovative squirrel proof features are ideal, maximising feeding opportunities for birds while minimising the risk of squirrel interference.

    Installation and Placement Tips

    Select a location for your Squirrel proof bird feeder that is away from trees, fences, or structures that squirrels could use to jump onto the feeder. Ideally, place the feeder at least 10-12 feet away from any potential launching points.

    Mount the feeder on a smooth metal pole or attach a squirrel baffle below the feeder to prevent squirrels from climbing up and accessing the food. Make sure the pole or baffle is at least 5-6 feet high and offers no footholds for squirrels to grasp onto.

    If using a hanging squirrel proof feeder, choose a sturdy hanging system with a strong wire or chain that is squirrel-resistant. Hang the feeder from a height that makes it difficult for squirrels to jump onto it from nearby surfaces.

    Ensure that there are no overhanging branches or structures above the feeder that squirrels could use to drop down onto it. Trim back any branches that provide easy access to the feeder.

    Position the squirrel proof bird feeders in an open area with clear sight lines, allowing birds to spot potential predators and feel safer while feeding.

    Keep the feeder at least 3-4 feet away from windows to prevent bird collisions and reduce the risk of squirrels using nearby structures to access the feeder.

    Clean the feeder and surrounding area regularly to remove spilled seed and prevent buildup of debris that could attract squirrels. Check the feeder periodically for damage or signs of wear and tear, and make any necessary repairs promptly.
