This is the BEST. I finally won the battle with the help of Coles Super hot seed. I bought several squirrel proof (supposedly) bird feeders. The squirrels would constantly dump all the seed or destroy the feeder. I found this at my local garden center. WOW. The squirrels hate it. They wont touch it. The first squirrel turn and ran. The birds love the seed. Finally, peace and quiet have come again to my backyard. LOVE YOU COLES
