Squirrel proof

It's a love/hate relationship we have with those furry teapots whose ingenuity is exceeded only by their Chutzpah. Thankfully, a number of feeders have been developed recently that are designed to keep the little devils in their place. (Also, please see Accessories page for information on squirrel baffles.)
