These simple feeders are constructed from two pieces of plastic pipe. The vertical pipe is filled with mixed corn. The horizontal pipe passes through the vertical pipe at ground level and has a hole drilled half way along its length to allow the corn to trickle in. The voles and mice reach the food by crawling along the horizontal pipe, This design ensures that larger species such as rats and birds cannot access the food.
