    Some like music videos, but I need Squirrel answers here.....We have squirrels all over the place in our neighborhood including nests in our trees - I was walking down the driveway to get the paper one day, and one of our little squirrels stopped right in front of me about 4 feet way and just stared at me. I said to self, so I am being held hostage by a squirrel ? Anyway - I also love my birds, especially the Cardinals that I love to feed. I have tried everything to keep the squirrels out of my bird feeders but it just is not possible. I tried Crisco on the pole for awhile - Squirrel jumps up the pole and slides on down - after they go rub their bellies in the dirt - the are persistent and finally make it to the feeder and tip it upside down and gobble up all the sunflower and safflower seed just when the Cardinals are getting used to their new feeding place. (I don't use Vaseline on the pole because that is harmful to the squirrel). What's the answer?

    I don't know if it will work with squirrels but cats and dogs are repelled from things by the smell of Vicks Vaporub.

    It's been interesting listening to the jurors and alternates after the non-verdict verdict. Even though they didn't know everything we knew, most of them seem to be on the same page as most of us here. CMA is pure evil. Then, there were evidently some that believed the verbal abuse and mental abuse claims but they didn't fall for the physical abuse - goodbye broken finger in the popsicle sticks...

    LOL - Oh, you do not know squirrels, do you? I lived in Texas for many years and Armadillos would dig up my flower beds - I tried Tabasco sauce sprinkled around my beds but that didn't work either.....

    Try ground pepper.

    Isn't it great NOT seeing or hearing from JA! YAY! Locked and quiet. For a while...

    CALM.

    Kind of like a "spa" atmosphere.

    Like STFU.

    Depending on your pole you can put a baffle on it... I get my bird supplies from wild birds unlimited... There is a different chain I went to in mn that sold bulk food by the weight, which would be awesome for finches because they are so finicky about stale food. I'm sure you can find more info online somewhere. My store here just told me to keep a 10ft diameter free of trees and jumping points and to use the baffle to keep the squirrels at bay. The pic I posted earlier was pre baffle....

    Very relaxing indeed - I do feel a calmness knowing she is locked in that cell 23 hours a day...OK, should I mix ground pepper with the bird seed and the squirrels won't like it? Let's get down to business here - Sleuthing Squirrels

    Oh no, don't tell me this. I just spent a fortune today on Shepherd hooks and bird houses and seed. I was told that the squirrel could not climb the pole on the shepherd's hook.

    Also there is a seed that squirrel do not like but I can't remember what it is. Maybe thistle, but not sure. Google it, I am sure it will be on there.
    My prayers are for the innocent.

    Haha! I just had to read up on squirrels in AZ Sunday. We have some funky goings on. We feed the cardinals, woodpeckers & thrashers unsalted peanuts in a suspended basket. Late last winter I started seeing a squirrel. I was excited for a day or two. He was trying to live in a shed on our property. Then we have a guest house and found peanut shells at the doorway. A few holes here and there so read up on how to stop animals that burrow or dig holes. I found out if you want to do it easily and less harmful was to put pepper or chili powder where they might try to enter or in their holes. Apparently they don't like pepper. There's scent stuff to keep out almost any animal away that you can buy also. Natural scent of their predetor. fyi ha ha

    javalina doesn't like fox scent...and so on. Try pepper and chili pepper first.

    Oh, and peppermint oil too.

    I'm very familiar with Wild Birds Unlimited - I "raised" Purple Martins when I lived in Louisiana - I guess I will have to go hi-tech and get an "official" pole with the baffle but thought there might be a less expensive trick to keep them out of my feeders. I greatly appreciate your help!
