      Slippery squirrel: bird feeder raider deterred by Vaseline

      Slippery squirrel: bird feeder raider deterred by Vaseline
      Robert Krampf and his wife, Nancy, have been having a bit of trouble with a hungry squirrel in their yard, so they turned to the medicine cabinet for a solution.They spotted the critter snagging all the food from the bird feeder and it would even store extra to take home. First, they found out he got to the bird feeder: by shimming up a thin metal post.Nancy figured out that some non-toxic Vaseline would do the trick. Now, when the squirrel tries to climb it, he just slips back down.Don't worry, Robert says the squirrel still raids their other two feeders and the vegetable garden.Still, the video is quite hysterical!
