Bird Feeder Pole Placement is key!

Bird feeder pole placement is also critical in having a Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder Pole. The Squirrel Proof Bird Pole placement should be located a mimimum of 8 ft (10 ft if you have room) away from any object a squirrel can launch a "sideways" jump from. These jump points include a tree trunk, tree branch, wall, fence, stiff bush, rock, bird bath, etc. If the ground is very dry and hard, try watering the ground thoroughly the day before installling. When properly installed bird feeders should hang between 5 ft to 6 ft off the ground.
