For one woman, living in a wooded area is bliss, you get to be at one with nature, hear the birds chirping away and see the bees pollinating flowers. However, despite their adorable visual, squirrels can be a bit of a nightmare – especially to homeowners.

One thing squirrels are notorious for is stealing birdseed from feeders. Now, you can’t really blame them, but it can get a little frustrating. But what can you do to deter them? You’ve got to get a little crafty.

They created a squirrel pole slide to stop them reaching the feed

One lady decided that she was tired of squirrels helping themselves to the bird feeder she’d set up. But instead of chasing them away and getting made, she decided to take a more practical approach.

After watching the squirrels climb up the pole to the snacks, she knew she’d found a way to stop the theft. She greased up the pole with oil to stop them from gripping and climbing.

What makes the whole occasion better is that it’s a non-harmful way of stopping them and it makes for a pretty funny video. The squirrel looks like it’s going down a fireman’s pole as it slowly loses grip and slides back down.

You can hear the person holding the camera laughing as they film the event. We don’t blame them, it certainly gave us a good giggle as we watched it.
