Summertime is a Great Time to Feed the Birds
Summer is the most heavily bird-populated season in most of North America. Access to bird feeders allows nesting females to spend less time foraging, which can lead to better protection of eggs from predators, earlier fledging of the nestlings and higher survival rates of the broods.
Once fledglings leave the nest, watch as their parents teach them to eat from your feeders. It's a fascinating interaction!

How to Defeat Squirrels
Some see squirrels visiting feeders as an issue. We see a solution. With the proper food, feeders and accessories, you can enjoy your birds and limit squirrel incursions.
Hot Pepper: Our exclusive WBU hot pepper foods help deter critters, saving the food for the birds. Birds love our hot pepper foods, whether they are the seed or no-melt cylinders, stackables, no-melt suet cake or Bark Butter Bits. For best results, use feeders that have a roof to prevent wet weather from diluting or washing away the hot pepper oils.
Safflower: Offer safflower; a small, white seed that is high in protein and fat. Most song birds eat safflower, while squirrels (and blackbirds) typically do not.
Guard Against Them: Take delight not only in seeing the finches, chickadees and other colorful birds you enjoy, but also in frustrating the squirrels, blackbirds and pigeons. With our On Guard™ cages, you control the size of bird that dines at your feeder. Cages allow small birds to go in and out to get their food but stop larger birds and animals from entering. Our cages will fit a variety of feeder styles and sizes.
Top-of-the-Line Option: The Eliminator™ allows you to stop squirrels from eating your seed. Featuring a unique, weight-sensitive technology, the feeder's seed ports are closed when a squirrel touches the perch ring. You can set the sensitivity level to also exclude large birds. It's easy to hang and holds lots of seed. It works best when used with our APS Short Extended Deck Arm.
Baffle Them: Our Advanced Pole System® (APS) Squirrel Baffle is designed to help make your bird feeding station squirrel-resistant. Made of durable, powder-coated steel, these baffles are very effective in stopping squirrels before they reach your feeders. Place the baffle on your setup so the top of the baffle is 4½' - 5' from the ground. Place your setup 10-12 ‘ away from other horizontal jumping points like a tree, deck or house.
