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!!
Fat balls are balls of suet mixed with seed. We have special feeders to put them in, We also get square blocks of the same stuff that go in square feeders.
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..
