Description

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.

Think the material needs to be upgraded By Cheryl

I purchashed two of these feeders at a pretty hefty price thinking it would deter some of my squirrels. In ONE week the squirrels ruined both of them and I can no longer use. I also watched over these feeders to see how they would work. I believe if you would upgrade at least the perches to metal it would be a better feeder. Spending this kind of money and them only lasting that long does not make me a happy camper!

We apologize for this experience and appreciate the time taken to share this feedback. The information has been passed along to our Product Managers.

To deter squirrels, we recommend adding cayenne pepper to the seed. It will not affect the birds (since they have no sense of smell or taste) but it will repel squirrels. We also recommend placing the feeder at least 10 feet away from launching spots, such as trees or decks, and at least five feet above the ground.

Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) with any questions or for additional assistance.

chew toy for squirrels By lad

squirrels chewed through the bottom portals within 48 hours of hanging. Even at the lightest setting, the squirrels could still access the portals.

Response From Woodstreambrands
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

We apologize for this experience. To deter squirrels, we recommend placing feeders at least ten feet away from launching spots, such as trees or decks, and at least five feet above the ground. This will prevent them from climbing right onto the feeder and force them to come in contact with the weight-activated cage, blocking access to the ports.

Our Consumer Relations Team is happy to provide additional assistance. Please feel free to contact us at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973).

Would not recommend purchase. By Louise

Had it for 2 weeks before squirrels chewed portals to get at seed. Ordered new portals which were out of stock 5 weeks ago and apparently are still unavailable. Too expensive a bird feeder for short amount of usage time.

Poor! By Rn

Horrible feeder! Sure isn't squirrel proof! Squirrel just hangs from the top and emptyed. The whole feeder!

Response From Woodstreambrands
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

We apologize for this experience. To force the squirrels onto the weight-activated perches, we recommend hanging the feeder at least 12 feet away from any launching point and 4 feet up from the ground. This will prevent squirrels from jumping onto the feeder or being able to walk right out to it.

If further assistance is needed, please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973).

feeder rating By none

i have purched five of the squirrel begone feeders. intially the all work well. the after a while they dont work as well and the plastic rim that go around the hole come loose then the feed pours out. when they begin to not work properly the squirrels move in and chew them up pretty good. i think they should be made just a little stronger with the same concept.

After 3 days the squirrels figured out to hang off the top of the feeder, get to the seed. Chewed up plastic ports so can't refill with seed, just runs right out.

not as advertised By Ken

the squirrel's destroyed the feeder in less than one week. plastic of any thickness will not stop the little rodents. I think you should look into what material will stop them or at lest slow them down.

Not worth the money By Kim

Within 3 days the squirrels learned to hang off the top of the feeder to get seed. Chewed up openings down to bottom to bottom of feeders so seed just fell out when filling . Not a good purchase.

You Can't Fool a Squirrel By Scottish Miss

I purchased mine at Home Depot about three weeks ago. It is lovely and was working well until I found it on the ground with both springs out of the holes and all the feed gone. The springs were actually hanging outside of the decorative leaves from the top hooks. Squirrels are very clever. I had one heck of a time threading the springs back into place and re-hooking them. It took me over 30 minutes to do this. So far, the squirrels haven't had a go at it again. I do have a mini Squirrel-Be-Gone feeder that I purchased at the same time I bought this one. It is excellent and is made of metal with metal lattice around the feed cylinder. It is a pain to put feed in and hook it back up. Squirrels have yet to figure out how to get into this one, but I won't be surprised if they carry it away to have their buddies help them take it apart.

Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

We appreciate the time taken to provide this feedback and apologize for the experience.  

Adding cayenne pepper to the seed will not affect birds, as they have no sense of smell or taste, but will repel squirrels.  Placing feeders at least 5 feet above the ground and 10 feet from the nearest launching off point, such as trees and decks, will deter these long-distance jumpers from reaching a feeder.

Keep in mind that out feeders are covered by a one year replacement warranty.  Please give our Consumer Relations Team a call at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for any assistance needed.

Squirrels like this design By Hobot

Squirrels are braking the ports without any problem

Response From Woodstreambrands
Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

We regret to hear about this experience and would like the opportunity to learn more.

The cage on this feeder should drop down over the feeding port when a squirrel jumps onto it.  Additional measures can be taken to repel determined squirrels.  We recommend placing feeders at least 10 feet from the nearest jumping off point and 5 feet above the ground.  Cayenne pepper can be added to seed. This will not affect birds, but squirrels will be repelled.  They also do not care for safflower seed, but birds do.

Our feeders are covered by a one year replacement warranty. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for additional assistance.

Q&A
Q.Is a Blue Jay too heavy for this feeder or do you have a squirrel proof feeder that would work for the blue Jays.
A.

A blue jay would be able to feed from this feeder. The springs on the feeder can be adjusted for heavier and lighter birds.

Tips

Wild Bird Feeders - Expert Tips

Hanging Your Feeder

Ideally a sheltered southeastern exposure location is best for hanging bird feeders since birds like to feed in the sun and out of the wind. Birds also prefer not to have any obstructions over their feeding area so they can see any predators.

Accessorize!

Bird Baths - A clean and reliable water source is an excellent way to attract birds to your yard, especially those birds that do not necessarily eat seed or nectar. All birds will seek out a water supply, not only for drinking but also for keep themselves clean and healthy.

Bird Houses - These are a good way to attract those species of birds that nest in holes. These structures should be made of an untreated wood (pine, cedar, etc.) and should have ventilation and drainage holes. It should be durable, and easy to check and clean.

Feeder Care

Keeping your feeder clean and full of fresh bird seed is very important to the health of visiting birds. It is recommended that you clean your wild bird feeder every two weeks.
