Does anyone have any ideas on how to keep the bears from destroying feeders. We have 55gal drums with the timed spinners on the bottom hanging about 15 feet up by tree limbs and the bears are climbing the trees and reaching out and swatting the feeders destroying the motorized units and the solar chargers. Any ideas on how to keep the bears from getting up the trees?

Bears are excellent climbers, you are not going to stop them from getting up the trees. Try suspending the feeders between two trees that are far enough away from each other that the bears can't reach.

barbed wire on the trees...and a steel cable to hold the feeder up.
