It took a year for the squirrels to discover our bird feeder. They would climb on the roof lean over and completely dominate the feeder. About a month later, we stumbled across a Cole’s flier. After we placed the “hot meats” in place…here came the squirrels. The first one scared off the birds on the feeder, climbed on to the roof, leaned over and mouthed the seeds, and promptly fell to the ground. Ta-dum… more squirrels for the past 3 years! Hoorah for “hot meats.”
