Squirrel Solutions:

General Comment: Squirrels scare off birds and eat bird food - but you can stop them either with a Baffle or a Cage.

BAFFLES:

  • Uninterrupted view of birds
  • No cage to undo before cleaning/refilling feeder
  • One baffle round a pole can protect several feeders
  • The baffle will not rust
  • A baffle will deter both adult and young squirrels (active May-September)

The relevant pole or post needs to be sufficiently away from a fence or tree
so that a squirrel cannot jump across to the bird feeder.

MERIPAC SQUIRREL BAFFLES - MADE IN BRITAIN SINCE 2000

  • Unique patented tilting action prevents squirrels getting a foothold.
  • Wide 51.5cm / 20¼" diameter deters squirrels from jumping over it.

Meripac Versatile Squirrel Baffle

Meripac Versatile Squirrel Baffle

General Comment:

With most squirrel baffles you must decide before you buy whether it is to go around a pole (usually below the bird feeder) or above the pole (usually hanging from a branch or arm).

The Meripac squirrel baffles can be used in both locations.

Most other Squirrel baffles are rigid allowing the possibility of squirrel foothold. Only the Meripac Squirrel Baffles have a tilting action whereby the squirrel's weight makes it slip off.

Approx Product Data:

  • Size: 51.5mm / 20¼" diameter. 6cm / 2¼" slope centre to edge

Patented. Product Ref: 121

What's special?

  • An effective squirrel deterrent since its tilting action prevents squirrel foothold
  • Multi-location uses - it fits around poles up to 1" / 25.4mm diameter or hangs above a bird feeder
  • Wide, squirrel-deterring 20¼" / 51.5cm diameter baffle
  • Flexible ring (supplied) to be located round pole above baffle to limit any wind-induced excessive up-and-down movement

Meripac Birdtable Squirrel Baffle

Meripac Birdtable Squirrel Baffle

General Comment:

A baffle cannot be lowered from the top or raised from the base to go round a bird table post.

The Meripac Bird table baffle can be split, placed round the post and then refastened in a once-only operation.

Approx Product Data:

  • Size: 51.5mm / 20¼" diameter. 6cm / 2¼" slope centre to edge

Patented. Product Ref: 125

What's special?

  • Will fit round the post of any size wooden bird table
  • For very small bird tables under 38x38mm, for extra large ones over 60x60mm and for round tables a small, invisible, once-only adjustment to the post is needed
  • It has the same wide squirrel-deterring diameter and unique tilting action as the Versatile baffle

Meripac Universal Squirrel Baffle

General Comment:

With other squirrel baffles you must decide in advance whether it is to go round a pole below a feeder, to hang from a branch or hook above a feeder, or to go round a bird table post with no top or bottom access.

The Meripac Universal Squirrel Baffle will fit all these locations with a maximum bird table post size of 50x50mm / 2"x2"

In all these locations they have the same squirrel-deterring tilting action as in the other two models.

Most other Squirrel baffles are rigid allowing the possibility of squirrel foothold. Only the Meripac Squirrel Baffles have a tilting action whereby the squirrel's weight makes it slip off.

Approx Product Data:

  • All location uses - it fits around poles up to 1" / 25.4mm diameter, around posts up to 2" x 2" / 50mmx50mm, or hangs above a bird feeder

CAGES:

  • Will keep squirrels out whatever the location
  • Will keep out large birds
  • But the only cages that are only totally squirrel-proof are ones where the mesh gap widths are very narrow or ones where the width can be varied
  • Adult squirrels need a minimum gap of 36mm but young, active squirrels can get through a gap as small as 27mm
