Robert and Nancy Krampf discovered the perfect way to stop a squirrel raiding their bird-feeder: put Vaseline on the pole.
Yes, if you're looking for a video of a rodent doing an impersonation of a firefighter, you've come to the right place.
"For anyone who is concerned about the squirrel, he still raids our other two feeders and the vegetable garden," writes Robert on YouTube. "The tiny amount of Vaseline used is non-toxic, the kind used for lip balm. He quickly learned that this feeder was not worth the trouble, so we have not put more on the pole, and the birds are delighted to actually get some of the bird seed."
One word: Bless.
