Apart from the rare but occasional small, juvenile squirrel the bird food inside this feeder will be reserved for your friendly wild birds including; robins, blue tits, finches, great tits and house sparrows, and to ensure it remains safe for these lovely birds to use you should clean out the feeder regularly (every 8-10 weeks) which can easily be done with the London feeders as they can be fully dismantled so that every area of this suet pellet feeder can be properly washed and cleansed.

A Note On Squirrel Protection
This feeder can only protect against adult grey squirrels and large adult birds. Some birds may not fit through the bars but could manage to get their head into the feeder. Adolescent young squirrels could squeeze into the feeder due to their flexibility. The young squirrels look very similar to adults. This is a temporary seasonal issue.
You may also find that adolescent jackdaws, crows and pigeons may find their way in. The bars on these feeders cannot be made smaller to protect from adolescent or red squirrels as this would pose a risk to the birds.
A deterrent of chilli flakes mixed in with the nuts or seeds will deter the squirrels whilst being completely harmless to the birds.
