This sounds fine, but if it is hung within easy reach of the squirrels in my garden,thenthe birds have no chance, they have taken so many fat ball holders away and we never find them again, iI'm beginning to think they have there own stash somewhere. frustrated from Pratt's bottom

Hi Dave,

I used to have the problem with fat ball feeders.

Then i hung them on a branch attached to a length of strong wire.

the squirrel could not reach from the trunk, or climb down the wire!

when i hung them on the trunk of tree the were eaten by snails too!!

Oh! if only they were red squirrels instead of these destructive grey rats with fluffy tails they killed most of our indigenous species off with the disease that they carry, they destroy trees and eat through every type of bird feeder ripping wire mesh apart with their vicious little teeth, bring back our charming little reds.
This looks so pretty!

What's a fat ball? Suet?

Our feeders are attached to a metal pole, it is greased with axle grease it has stopped the squirrel in its tracks haven't seen it for months.

Thats  great but I have a wood bird house and feeding area and my feeder are hung up  so I try to make it hard for the squittels.. Still no birds..
