Raccoons are smart… But are we smarter? Only time will tell if our new “Raccoon Resistant” bird feeder stand will actually keep the raccoons out!
I’m willing to bet that almost every homeowner at one point or another has had to deal with raccoons. They can be sneaky little suckers… With those little fingers, they can get into just about anything!
We have all sorts of wildlife around our house: deer, raccoons, foxes and even hogs. Yuck!
There are so many birds around, we like to keep our bird feeder full of seed. This summer those rascally raccoons figured out how to get to the seed hanging form the pole!
We brainstormed and tried a couple of different things. Finally my hubby put together this new stand using a few things from the hardware store. We thought, maybe a wider pole would make it more difficult for the raccoons to climb since they would not be able to wrap their fingers around the pole.
Now, what about you? Do you have any wild life deterrent tips to share? Leave a comment below!
