I found if you grease the metal poles with lithium or even axle grease, it'll keep the squirrels from climbing them. My squirrels will chew through hardware cloth in a day or two. I moved my pole out into the middle of the yard > 10ft from any tree to keep the leapy-things away from playing "flying squirrel" too. That seems to have resolved the problem for 6+ months now.

At my house, if the squirrels are getting to the birdfeeders, we just let the dog outside.
