3. Protecting Bird Feeders
Bird feeders are beautiful additions to any outdoor garden or setting. But while it makes for a pretty outdoor space and can attract a number of beautiful bird species, pesky squirrels that steal food from the birds can also target bird feeders. A great way to avoid such pesky critters from stealing from your bird feeders is to spray the pole generously with a coating of the ever-handy WD-40. This coating will make the pole slippery for long periods, and make the squirrels unable to climb up to the bird feeders, leaving the seeds you put out for the bird available for them only.
