I found this picture from last year... thats what happens when you have a good baffle.
"FEED MEEEEE"


This terrible picture of the baffle working from my old setup.

He DOES look baffled.

Most poles ship in sections that screw into each other.

Sure will.
Great. Thanks!

Anyone try this?

Never tried that, but in doubt I'll tolerate the smell.

I have used cayenne pepper, but with mixed results.

Because your feeders are right near your house. It may be an option for the middle of a yard.

That works, but it's officially not healthy for squirrels and it needs to be sprayed every couple of days.

I don't really care about this :P

It needs to be sprayed every couple of days.

But this is why I don't do it.

Also, it doesn't prevent them from jumping.

As long as it's not fish oil, otherwise it's personal
