Totally Useless Squirrel-proof
I bought the bird feeder shown below from a Wild Birds Unlimited store with the assurance that, while it would not keep out red squirrels or chipmunks, it worked very effectively to prevent marauding grey squirrels from getting to the peanuts. As you can see from the pictures below, grey squirrels can get past the supposed barrier with ease and sit and eat the peanuts with impunity. I sent a picture to the store where I purchased the feeder but did not even receive an acknowledgement and they continue to sell this feeder. Buyer beware! This feeder is totally useless as a defence against squirrels depleting your peanuts in short order.
