I successfully kept squirrels out of a tube-style bird seed feeder by
mixing the seed with powdered cayenne.  If I did that every time I
filled the tube, the birds enjoyed it and the squirrels left it alone.
Watch out for the fine powdery cayenne dust though, it is very
irritating to eyes and nose.
