Squirrel Baffles by Erva Tool Co.

Foil those pesky squirrels from ravishing your feeder, and pilfering seed meant for your feathered friends. Folks, these really work when used correctly – following proper setbacks and clearances from trees, fences, etc. They are made of steel which offers far more protection than aluminum or plastic baffles! No contest. Erva baffles are available in several styles & sizes  to meet your needs. They are also made by some talented folks right here in the USA!
