Try greasing the pole of the feeder or birdhouse with Vaseline.

It can be entertaining to watch the squirrels slide down the pole with frustration. I have also used a child's Slinky with pretty good results. One of the little devils made off with my slinky.

Love My Squirrels
by: Barbara

My husband and I both just love our squirrels. On one of our coldest winter mornings I peeked out and there were ten squirrels, both black and gray ones running around, and waiting on me. This morning, I peeked out and there were four. One was sitting on the fence looking at the door. They are very smart and cute. I love the birds, too!

It is quite amusing to watch them as they try to get into a $6.27 bird cage I purchased to protect suit cakes from jays and squirrels.
