I bought two baffles, attached them to my Gardman deluxe feeders and sat back to observe. Magic, glorious magic, inventor I could kiss you! As long as you position the feeder so that squirrels can't jump from something else onto the top of the feeder, it is impossible for them to climb up - IMPOSSIBLE! They are intelligent enough to know when they are beaten too - there is no more loitering, they have just moved on.
My joy then ran over as a rat shimmied up the pole (just like we used to attempt to do in PE classes up a rope), investigated the underside of the baffle, and them shimmied straight down again. I smiled one huge satisfied smug smile - I do like to feel we are a superior species (although his shimmying was impressive it has to be said .....).
So now I can buy cheap feeders with no cages, the birds are plentiful and plump breasted, and my feeders are completely mammal-free.
1.) You find yourself banging on the window, clapping your hands loudly, and running down the garden waving like a windmill,
2.) You become ever-so-slightly obsessed with googling "squirrels"
3.) You spend too much time on Amazon researching how to deter pesky squirrels
You know it is time to buy a baffle. Go on, you know you want to, just so you can say "what squirrel?".
In essence, this device whilsat clever was worked out by my squirrels within three days. The bottom has been removed, the mesh is broken and it is held together with wire.
Squirrels are not easily put off by clever ideas and this one, whilst sound in principal has proven easy to defeat. Avoid.
That said, my 2 local nemeses, namely the South London Parakeet Posse and the Sydenham Squirrel Massive, have both had a serious go today and have thus far failed to get their usual free (all you can eat) lunch, breakfast and dinner chez moi.
I'm not doing laps of the garden yet but hopefully this purchase has put an end to:
a) refilling my feeders every day.
b) me running into the garden, shouting and waving my arms about like a demented tic-tac man.
c) the neighbours thinking they live next door to Broadmoor
d) the wife telling me to get a life (debateable).
It's a good, well made and sturdy piece of kit, easy to use/fill/clean etc.
Smaller birds (various tits, robins) are already using it without any problems, although our resident woodpecker seems a bit flummoxed but may well be slightly too large to gain access.
Bottom line: I'd recommend this product and the supplier - Garden Selections Ltd.
I will update in a little while where I'll either continue as above (and add a star) or tell you which calibre rifle I will be ordering...
As promised here's an update:
So it's been approx 5 weeks and after the initial euphoria, it's a little different now.
Whilst the Parakeets have been kept at arms or should I say wings-length and have all but given up trying now, the Squirrel situation is not so good.
Several times the little blighters have managed to launch themselves onto the feeder and rattle / scratch at it hard enough to lever the lid upwards and eventually flip it off completely.Read more ›
