This baffle is very effective in keeping the tree rats (squirrels) off my suet feeder. Usually the tree rat descends the wire to the baffle and gives up. Once in a while a very persistent (or very hungry) one puts its weight on the baffle, which then tilts maybe 60 degrees and dumps the tree rat 7' to the ground. Those pesky little rodents can fall 10x that distance without getting hurt...so they're not injured...but it is quite comical to watch them trying to figure out how to get past this item...and for the few that actually give it a try...the big dump and tree rat becomes a "flying squirrel" for a second!
So far, the squirrels haven't figured out how to get around it, so I bought another one! And it keeps some of the rain off of the seeds.
