Use Vaseline On Birdfeeder To Keep Ants Away

I recently read that applying anything greasy on the bird feeder pole to keep the squirrels is not a good idea. Apparently, if anything greasy gets on the feathers of birds, it can cause them a lot of problems. Clean bird feathers are essential for helping them stay warm and dry during the winter.
