Perky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone® III Feeder - 2 Pack
The nine perch/feeding station set-up on each feeder, coupled with the anti-squirrel technology makes these squirrel proof feeders the most economical and convenient on the market!
The Perky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone® Wild Bird Feeder III 2 Pack features 9 feeding ports, an 8 lb. seed capacity for each feeder, U-shaped perches, and 3 separate seed tubes that allow for a variety of seed types. The interior seed tubes are surrounded by rustic metalwork. Feeder comes fully assembled.
The feeding ports of these squirrel proof feeders have sturdy metal perches that allow birds to feed comfortably, but when the squirrels perch on them, their weight causes the entire metal casing to slip down, completely blocking the feeding ports and their access to the seed.
Remember to clean your squirrel proof feeder once every two weeks with a mild soap and water solution.

Review RateSilly Squirrel!We are very pleased with our Squirrel be gone feeders. We have watched a squirrel fight and struggle to get the seed. He has be upside down, right side up and even stretched across from one feeder to the other to attempt to feed from the other feeder. He did finally figure a way in and we were very surprised. A latch on the top may keep the determined squirrel out of the feeder.
Review RateDoesn\'t work, Squirrels are Laughing at MeThe squirrels are eating so much of my bird seed I never see any birds. They have bent the decorative metal that covers the holes so they can get to the feed. I have had to adjust the springs multiple times to no avail. This feeder does not work at all, either that or the squirrels I have went to HarvardResponse From WoodstreambrandsKelly : Consumer Relations RepresentativeHello,
To keep squirrels from getting on to the feeder we recommend hanging it from a pole that is 10 feet from a tree. This will help to keep them from jumping onto the feeder.

Review RateVaselineRecently purchased and found it to be flimsy. I would not purchase again.
But to keep squirrels a little annoyed smear the pole to which it is hung with Vaseline.
Won't hurt them, but keep them entertained!
Review RateThis is not squirrel proofPurchased a Perky-Pet Squirrel Be Gone bird feeder from Canadian Tire and the squirrels did not take long to demolish it. I found it on the ground with the top broken off and all the springs have been stretched out of shape and the wire loop detached.
Review Ratesquirrels gnawed thru the plasticWhen the pesky squirrels know that there is food inside, they just gnawed thru the top plastic.Response From WoodstreambrandsKelly : Consumer Relations RepresentativeHello,

Review RatePoor DesignI received this feeder as a gift for my birthday a few days ago. I love that it holds three different types of seed and is squirrel proof. However, the portals are too large and as a result, most of the seed has ended up on the ground! Very disappointing! I have had numerous feeders in my life and for the price, this is the worst. Needs a redesign. I will take it back to the store for a refund.Response From WoodstreambrandsLauren : Consumer Relations RepresentativeThis squirrel resistant feeder is best used with black oil sunflower seed, peanuts and mixed seed. We apologize for this recent experience and would like to learn more about the seed that was used.
