*A note on Juvenile Squirrels and Juvenile Large Birds
This feeder can only deter against adult squirrels and adult large birds. Juvenile squirrels are extremely adgile with less fur than their adult counterparts, this means they are able to access small spaces, and could potentially get through the bars on this feeder. Squirrels are born in March and April, and again in June and July, so you may find this a problem during the spring and summer months.
Young large birds may also find their way to the food, particulary young magpies and crows. In addition to this some birds with longer beaks such as a woodpecker may be able to reach the food. We cannot guarantee that this feeder will resist access/damage from these young squirrels and birds but it will deter the majority of the larger fully grown species.
If these juvenile squirrels cause issue then we recommend trying a sprinkling of chilli flakes in the bird feed, squirrels really hate chilli. However birds are not at all bothered by chilli, so this is unlikely to deter the juvenile large birds.
- Lovely looking feeder
Price Quality ValueLovely looking feeder This is a very pretty feeder, a lovely green that blends very well with the foliage around it. The birds are not that interested in it, preferring the wild bird seed mix in the other feeder nearby, but there are a couple of sweet little mice who visit the peanut feeder, it's perfect for them, they stand on the platform and enjoy the nuts.

Very pleased with this item. (Posted on 16/05/2020)Excellent We have a lot of wildlife visiting our garden, including ‘demolishing‘ deer and ‘sneaky‘ squirrels. Definitely squirrel proof! Observed a squirrel giving up after a few seconds. Have yet to see what the deer make of it! Very pleased with this item. Jinty 20-05/16
