Three weeks ago, I had to replace my hanging tube feeder, the Squirrel Buster. My old one succumbed to the skills of the squirrels. The squirrels can not eat the seeds with the feeder hanging from a post, so they teamed up to knock it down.

The squirrels destroyed it by knocking the stand down, which cracked the plastic tube which holds the seeds. I just saw the stand crashing to the ground as two squirrels high-tailed in out of my garden.
I was so ticked off, I wouldn’t write about it until I cooled off. Which is now. It took me three weeks to get over the annoyance, forget the money I had to spend and like the squirrels again.
This is one of my new feeders. It is a Squirrel Buster Classic. I stuck with the Squirrel Buster because they do work and last awhile. I bought two this time, a small and a larger one. I like the wire cage on the outside, which will protect the plastic tube from cracking during squirrel attacks.
