Have you ever seen the movie" Caddy Shack"?
Bill Murray plays a golf course grounds keeper who is in a battle with
a destructive groundhog.
He spends every waking moment thinking
about how to get rid of this annoying varmint.
I am Bill Murray.
Same fight...different animal.
I'm in a battle of battles with Mr. squirrel.
I spend way too much time roaming the isles of Lowes
looking for an answer.
Here's my problem.
It seems the furry four legged creatures
are not satisfied with just eating the bird feed we put out.
If the opening in the thistle feeder isn't big enough,
they'll just make it bigger.
Below is a photo
of a solar bird feeder that we used to enjoy
Obviously the squirrel population these days
list "electrician" as one of their skill sets.
They disconnected the wiring
with the ease of a member of the local electrical union.
Game on Mr. squirrel.
Go ahead little squirrel
I dare you.
No more rope for you to chew threw
with your pointy little teeth.
And how about this my furry friend!
A new thistle feeder.....
.....that closes automatically
when you put your gnarly little feet on it.
Go ahead, give it a try.
The openings close as soon as you get on it.
you do this.
