Squirrels are notorious for getting at bird feed — so make sure your feed goes to the birds by using a squirrel-proof bird feeder. While no bird feeder is completely squirrel-proof, you can trust in quality when you buy with RSPB:
Feeder poles, squirrel buster feeders, and guardians, we have a fantastic range of squirrel deterrent feeders that provide ways to feed birds while baffling those pesky squirrels.
Finding the best bird feeder depends on your garden and the birds you’re looking to attract. Some popular squirrel-proofing methods include guardians, squirrel busters, or sanctuaries, so choose one that best fits your surroundings.
When you put out bird seed, unwanted pests are sure to follow. For help keeping squirrels away from your bird feeder, read our guide to creating a bird-friendly garden — this will show you all the tips and tricks.
Squirrels love to climb, which makes your bird feeder pole a popular target. You can humanely deter squirrels from climbing your bird feeder pole using a downwards opening cone. Alternatively, you could use grease such as Vaseline to make the surface slippery.
