The other day I saw on Facebook where someone had uploaded a video to You Tube of a 'sure fire' squirrel chaser. I liked the idea and really, what a cool idea. A SLINKY. Yes...a slinky. Just take your usual feeder on a pole and attach to underneath the feeder a SLINKY. As the squirrel tries to climb up the pole, it comes in contact with the SLINKY and slinks down..... I saw it on video, it works...!!
Yes, it worked only on 'You Tube'.... Need I say more? As evident by my image above, you can see my SLINKY attached to the base of the feeder, and you can see the SLINKY, while coming down, merely providing a ladder for the squirrel to climb UP. Great idea....yeah, great. I think the SLINKY cost me $4.98 at Toys R Us.
