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 innovative weight-activated exterior cage wraps protectively 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 pillaging 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.

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

Somewhat-pretty By Bird Lover

Very pretty which attracted me. Many squirrel resistant feeders are ugly (my opinion - but for me they may work but I want beauty). Would recommend for the price chew resistant components and more rust free metal (over time the coating fails). Lovely looking though in the beginning and the birds like it. Please improve upon it.

Squirrels tore it apart in no time at all. By woodbull

Squirrels tore it apart in no time at all. Pretty is as pretty does, and it didn't. All lower ports pulled apart so seeds from higher up simply poured out. Plastic materials destroyed.

Not Recommended, does not last and cheap materials used to make this product. By 1consumer

Had the Perky Pet Squirrel-Be-Gone feeder for about 8 months when I noticed the clear plastic insert was cracking around the bottom where the base piece holds in the bird seed. Sure enough it let go and is useless as the bottom has no other way of staying on. For the cost of this feeder I expected quality and years of use!

not satisfied By jim

Birds love it but the Squirels have eaten away the plastic opening on one of the feeding chanels and seed pours out of that one half way up. I think it should be sturdier for the money...

Hello Jim,

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

The weight-activated cage should block access to the ports, but squirrels can sometimes get creative. Our 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 further assistance.
For additional squirrel-deterrent measures, we recommend placing the feeder out of jumping reach, adding a baffle above the feeder, or adding cayenne pepper to the seed.

Not worth the money By Reesch
I bought this feeder about two months ago. In that period, I've had to replace the springs once, and of the replacements, one has rusted out and the other two are hyper-extended due to the squirrels hanging on the cage. In addition I had to replace a couple of the plastic inserts. The replacements were all warped which prevented them from fitting properly and also interfered with the cage dropping when squirrels got on the feeder.
For the money, I'd suggest three of the single feeders. I've had my single feeder for over 5 years and never had a problem. Three single feeders are about the same price as the larger three tube feeder.

Thank you for the time taken to provide this feedback, and apologize for this unusual experience. Our feeders are covered by a one year replacement warranty. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team directly at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) so we can make this right.

When squirrels continue to pester feeders, consider some of these tips for additional squirrel-deterrent measures:

1. Place feeders at least 5 feet above the ground and 10 feet away from the nearest jumping off point.
2. Add cayenne pepper to the seed. Since birds have no sense of taste or smell, it will not affect them, but it will repel squirrels.
3. Safflower seed is nutritious and attracts a wide variety of birds, but squirrels usually don't like it.
4. Installing a baffle above the feeder can prevent access from higher launching points.

Solid and so far, good deterrent against squirrels By The Bakers
Have only had my feeder up one week - so far so good on squirrel deterrent. Strongly advise hanging on a strong metal shepherd's hook type pole, away from things that squirrels can jump from. Also, use coconut oil or similar substance on the pole to keep the squirrels off. However, the lubricant will weaken and the critters will get on the feeder. Given the capacity, the feeder doesn't require frequent refilling - the avian critters love it.
