Keep squirrels away from bird feeder

Coat the pole of a bird feeder with petroleum jelly and the squirrel won't be able to get to the food

Or if it is hanging all you have to do is coat the chain or rope.

I have a so-called "squirrel proof" feeder but the squirrel gets on there, hangs upside down and eats.

I am just grateful that he does not chew through the feeder itself--he destroyed the first 2 feeders I had!
