Birdquest.com, an online, Ohio-based bird feeder store is selling a speedy little gadget called the Twirl-A- Squirrel, which is a disc that attaches to bird feeder designed to chase off squirrels that are trying to pick at your backyard bird food.
The invention spins as soon as it senses a squirrels weight is on the feeder, and has up to three different speeds used to spin off squirrels.
But company representative Mel Toellner says the manic, mini merry-go-round has never been cranked up to full twirl speed.
Says Toellner: Only one squirrel has gotten past 10 seconds into the second speed before it fell off.
But the lightning squirrel speed seems to be working, since once the squirrels realize the bird feeder spins, they dont want to get on anymore.
Toellner adds, The squirrels get irritated and probably think, I wont eat here, Ill go to your neighbors!
