Just now I saw a chickadee in the Northern Spy apple tree.  I don't know if chickadees are insect-eating birds, but what means are available to attract insect-eating birds into a tree?

Such as:
1] Suet?  If so, how prevent squirrels from accessing suet?  Is a simple suet cage enough?
2] Growing intentionally some insects that would release from the apple tree to provide an attaction for insect-eating birds to visit the tree?
