Perky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone® III Wild Bird Feeder

Perky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone® III Wild Bird Feeder

Turn your yard into a bird feeding oasis with this Perky-Pet Squirrel-Be-Gone III Wild Bird Feeder. It attracts everything from cardinals, finches, flickers, and grackles to grosbeaks, jays, juncos, and kinglets--even sparrows, wrens, and woodpeckers. Best of all, this wild bird feeder provides an optimal feeding station for birds--without catering to those sneaky squirrels.

Sorry, Squirrels!

A charming addition to any outdoor space, this beautiful feeder features three durable plastic seed chambers, attractive metal caging with a powder-coated rustic brown finish, and ornamental leaves that are more than just decorative.

This feeder's weight-activated cage wraps around the seed compartments. When a squirrel climbs onto the cage, the spring-loaded exterior cage drops down, throwing the squirrel off balance and lowering the ornamental leaves on the cage down into position where they effectively act as a barrier, covering the seed ports and preventing squirrels from taking the seed supply. Easy-to-access settings allow for adjusting the cage's spring tension as necessary.

This feeder's nine seed ports nicely dispense bird seed, while its bird-preferred, U-shaped metal perches allow birds to comfortably perch and feed. The bird's weight won't lower the cage, but when a squirrel climbs on, down it goes.

Easy to Fill and Use

This innovative Squirrel-Be-Gone III wild bird feeder comes fully assembled and makes a lovely addition to any personal collection or a thoughtful gift idea. This feeder holds up to 8 pounds of black oil sunflower seed, peanuts, or mixed seed. Use the same seed in all three chambers or add a different kind to each chamber to attract an even greater variety of birds. After filling the bird feeder, simply hang it in the yard, and watch as your feathered friends swoop in to celebrate.

Suggested Placement

This wild bird feeder comes with a wire loop for hanging near a back deck, porch, patio, or a window overlooking a garden or landscaped area in your yard. Choose a location that not only provides a great view, but that is also bird friendly. Birds prefer an open space, so they can easily move from one feeding port to the next. They also like to be in a location that gets both sun and partial shade during the day. An ideal location will be between 5 and 8 feet off the ground and within 15 feet of nearby coverage, like bushes and shrubs, so birds feel safe and protected from predators.

Cleaning the Feeder

The clear, plastic seed compartments make it easy to monitor seed levels at a glance. Be sure to keep this bird feeder clean and filled with fresh seed to ensure happy birds and return visits. Perky-Pet recommends checking this bird feeder once a week for insects or mold and cleaning it every few weeks with a mild soap and water solution.

Wild Birds love:

  • 9 seed-dispensing ports
  • Comfortable U-shaped perches
  • Fresh seed continuously

You'll love:

  • Weight-activated squirrel technology
  • Powder-coated rustic brown finish
  • No assembly required
  • Pure enjoyment and relaxation watching wild birds feeding

Positive experience with the Squirrel-Be-Gone wild bird feeder By Pete

I’ve tried many “squirrel resistant” bird feeders over the years. But my experience has not all been positive - squirrels are smart, crafty and persistent and are often able to get what they want. The best feeder I’ve found is the Squirrel-Be-Gone. It’s easy to change the spring action in order to prevent the feeder from staying open when a squirrel jumps up for a visit. There is some seed fallout from the feeding wells which happens when the birds are feeding (they can be kind of sloppy eaters), but the problem is reduced greatly compared with other feeders I’ve had.

Change the plastic back By Bird watcher

My first one I bought lasted 3 seasons. The last one I bought both the squirrels and I noticed that they changed the quality of the plastic, much thinner. Squirrels won.

This feeder should have metal Baffles to hold in feed... By Steve

Squirrel - Be-Gone lll is not squirrel proof or resistant the squirrels chew out the baffles that hold back the seed from falling out. Had this feeder for a month and two baffles are chewed out so seed falls out , non useable without taping over the holes. Baffles should be made of metal or give a lot of extra baffles along with the feeder.

Very disappointed. By boo

Just one day and the squirrels had bitten through the plastic, wrecked the springs, and were right in the feeders. My squirrels must be university educated and weigh far more than your test subjects! Hanging upside down worked.

My squirrel just at through thr plastic feeder sites. The springs did not deter the squirrel from destroying the feeder. I only had it two months

Bad feeding ports By Roosy

This is the second pair of the 'Perky-Pet Squirrel be Gone 111 I've had. The first were great but you apparently changed the design of the feeding ports. The ones I have now the feed ports lets the seed pour out onto the ground. As you are still selling this unit I hope you have corrected the port design. I'd appreciate it if you would send me 18 good ports. Thank you, Paul Roosenberg

Beautiful, but Some Issues By Marcia

This was a great squirrel-resistant feeder, but a little difficult to fill. Also, a wind-storm knocked it off its post, and it broke into three pieces, so.... Finally, 8 lbs is a lot of feed. You don't want to fill this and then have to carry it to your location.

Q&A
Q.Can this be pole mounted
A.

This feeder is designed to be hung only.

Q.Hi, I installed one of these feeder last week and noticed that the birds (sparrows and black cap chickadees) do not seem to like it. I have a basic round tube type feeder around 10 feet away, filled with the same bird feed, and that one is empty while the squirrel proof one is full. From watching the birds,m it looks like they have trouble landing on a perch and when they do, it seems like they are too close to the feeder. Perch is too short. Any ideas if anything can be done to entice the birds to go the feeder? Might have to return it if thing don't improve soon.
A.

Birds are creatures of habit and can take time to try a new food source. To help entice them to the new feeder, we recommend placing a shiny pie plate filled with bird seed under the feeder. Placing a fresh water source nearby also works well.

Q.Can you buy new springs and connectors for this feeder?
A.

We apologize as replacement parts are no longer offered due to low demand. This feeder is covered by a one year warranty with a copy of the purchase receipt. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for additional assistance.
