Squirrels Shocked at this Bird Feeder
If you love birds, hate squirrels, and wish there was a sure-fire way to keep them off your feeder, then a bird feeder called Squirrel-Off is just the thing.
There are a lot of ways to keep the little rodents off a bird feeder, one of the more common being a conical piece of metal wrapped around the supporting pole. But squirrels are pretty smart and will sometimes try jumping over to the feeder. It’s also sometimes not practical to place a feeder sufficiently far from walls or trees. Squirrel-off solves this by jolting the animal with a mild shock – not enough to do harm, but enough to convince the squirrel that hanging on to the feeder is a bad idea.
Even better, the Squirrel-Off won’t draw from the house current; it is solar powered. As long as it gets at least a couple of hours of sun it will charge up and keep the squirrels away – and let you enjoy the birds you wanted to attract in the first place.
The Squirrel-Off is sold from the company’s web site (http://www.squirrel-off.com) for $139.95.
