Bear Proof Pole Setup

Do you enjoy feeding the birds?  Have the bears in your area ruined that experience by destroying your feeders and poles?  Unfortunately we have built our homes in the bear’s backyard and now they want to enjoy what we have to offer. The bears have to eat, but they don’t have to eat the birdseed that we intend for the birds.

Our bear proof bird feeder pole (pictured above),  has worked well to ward off those pesky bears.  With a tall heavy grade steel pole the bear can’t bend the pole or reach the feeders. The result is no broken feeders, bent poles or unhappy people.  The pole comes equipped with 4 hooks and the feeders can be easily reached with included extension pole with handy hook.

Does it really work?  Take a look at our video to see for yourself.   The pole as shown in the photo works perfectly to keep your feeders out of the bears reach.  Take a look at the specifications and give us a call to discuss the best option for your yard.

We have partnered up with The Bird Store & More from up in Sturbridge, MA to offer this bear proof pole setup for our customers here in Southern Connecticut. He's been perfecting the design and selling them for 5 years now with great results!
