*A Note On Juvenile Squirrels and Juvenile large birds
The feeders can only protect against adult grey squirrels and large adult birds such as magpies, crows rooks etc, which ultimately do the most damage. Some birds, such as a woodpecker, wont fit through the bars but could manage to get their beaks inside and access the food.
There is always a chance than an adolescent young squirrel could squeeze into the bars and access the feeder. The young squirrels look very similar to adults but are actually far fluffier making them much more flexible! Squirrels are normally born in March, April, July and August so there may well be a risk around these months. This is short term issue and will be the problem of any feeder that has researched the necessary bar spacing required. You may also find that adolescent jackdaws, crows and pigeons may find their way in. The bars on these feeders cannot be made smaller to protect from adolescent or red squirrels as this would pose a risk to the birds.
If squirrels do manage to get into the feeders to prevent damage to the plastic tubes a dash of chilli flakes mixed in with the nuts or seeds will have no effect on the birds at all but will deter the squirrels.

Price Quality Valuegood product Having received the squirrel proof nut feeder I was pleased at its Finnish however once I had filled with nuts, I waited and watched to see if our squirrel could gain access, and to my surprise he did. Very easy for him he just lifted the lid with his teeth holding on to the outer cage and when open he went head first and was away with his reward. To stop him I developed a clip which fits over the lid securing on both sides, he retuned some time later and tried to open, this time he was not able to lift the lid. So the squirrel no longer gets his free nuts, all fo the lovely birds. Mt H Manley Henry 20-11/14
