Darn Squirrels in suet

11 years ago

We have our suet feeders up & are already getting tons of woodpeckers & nuthatches, etc. But the squirrels are driving us crazy this year. They've repeatedly taken down 2 of the 3 we have up. They're little suet piggies! We do throw down handfuls of cracked corn for them but that's enough anymore.

I see online some cage-type suet feeders. Does anyone have experience with them? They look like they may scare off some birds too. Or does anyone have other tips to keep them off the suet? We just put up a baffle on the suet on a short (3") bishop's hook, hopefully it'll help. But we'd like to have a 2nd suet feeder, on a tall (5") bishop's hook.
