Utterly baffling! What is a squirrel baffle?
Good question! Well, to put it simply, a squirrel baffle is a plastic dome shapped device added to hanging bird feeders to deter squirrels. You can buy baffles separately or some feeders come with one already integrated into the design. It's not that people dislike squirrels, but more the fact that they can prevent smaller garden birds from getting much needed bird food. Plus, squirels often damage feeders and cause seed to spill onto the floor, causing a mess.
How do baffles work?
Squirrels usually access a bird feeder buy jumping onto it from tree branches, roofs or drainpipes. Because squirrel baffles are made from smooth plastic and because they move and wibble when a squirrel lands on it, it makes them very unstable and causes the squirrel to topple off.
