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.

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

Squirrels 1, bird feeder zip By Joe

While it’s a pretty feeder it is a total waste. We filled it one time and the squirrels destroyed it. They pulled out the rubber inserts that hold the food in place. They also chewed up the base plastic. Squirrels won and we wasted our money. How can we send you a picture?

Response From Woodstreambrands
Susan : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Joe,

We are sorry to hear that this happened!  Some squirrels can be particularly persistent - some additional, more holistic tactics may help protect your seed.  Placing the feeder away from squirrel launching points, adding cayenne pepper to the seed, or switching to safflower seeds are all great ways to help deter the squirrels from stealing a snack.

Please keep in mind that our feeders are covered by a 30-day return policy as well as a one year warranty.  Photos of the damage would certainly be appreciated.  They can be sent to us at consumers@woodstream.com.  Our Consumer Relations Team can also be reached at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for additional assistance.

Excellent feeder for high traffic areas By jdgretz

This is my third one of these - the previous two having outlived their usefulness. I love the capacity of these units. During the heavy use season, I have to fill them at least every other day, and sometimes daily. The design keeps squirrels from climbing up and taking the food, but if yours are as inventive as mine, they hand over the top and nibble. That's what killed the last one - the tree rats ate the plastic feeder hole thing. That allowed the food to fall right out of the feeder. My only complaint (on the last two - this one is too new) is the threaded piece that mounts inside the lid and allows the hanger to rotate comes out after a while and needs to be taped back in with a hammer. My first one died when this fitting let go while the feeder was on the pole and the plastic split when it hit the ground. I repaired the second one a couple of times before it decided to quit fighting me and to stay in place.

not happy and lost use of Christmas present. By Eleanor

Got this feeder for Christmas. Put it out, saw that the squirrels could climb on it better then with any other feeder we had out there. The lid unscrewed from the wind and the whole feeder fell to the ground and the feed tubes were totally smashed and can no longer be used. The lid screw was put on properly when it was hung on the branch.

Destroyed by squirrels By Elsa

Even after adjusting the springs to thwart the most lightweight squirrels, they were still able to cling to the "cage" without it closing. I put up with it since the birds absolutely LOVED this feeder and it could host so many at once......until a squirrel chewed out one of the plastic "holes" that accesses the seed leaving that tube unusable. I'm sure it's only a matter of time before the other two tubes are similarly ruined on a feeder that I only had about 3 months.

Response From Woodstreambrands
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

We apologize for this experience. When trying to keep squirrels off the feeder, placement is key. Squirrels can jump several feet to reach a feeder. We recommend placing the feeder at least ten feet away from launching spots, such as trees or decks, and at least five feet above the ground. The combination of a squirrel-resistant feeder in a hard-to-reach spot can be enough to keep some squirrels away.

Poor quality By Mary

Perhaps your company should reconsider replacement parts. I have two of these feeders, both are unusable, one because the springs that hold up the leaves from blocking the feeder holes have rusted and broken, and the other because the nut at the bottom of the feeder falls off. Seems your only solution in reading these reviews is your one year warranty. My feeders are well past that, but in truth probably gave out in the first year or shortly after. For the price of these feeders your company should offer a better solution.

Not durable and overpriced! By John S

I used this feeder for about two months, had no problems at all with squirrels but one night some creature got at it, either a raccoon or possum and brought it down, it fell about four feet and broke the plastic base where the metal tie rod screws into it, the plastic is very thin and flimsy in the area where it broke and should be beefed up to make it more robust. I read on this site that replacement parts are not available for Perky Pets bird feeders, if that's the case then I am stuck with a pile of pieces of plastic that are only good for the recycling bin and they will never see anymore of my money.

Not as advertised By Matt

Same as plenty of other buyers. Squirrels chewed through the feeding ports and destroyed the tube. Contacted customer service a few days ago about ordering a replacement center tube and never heard back. Reading other reviews now and it appears they don’t sell replacement parts. I now have a very expensive bird feeder that won’t hold seeds.

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!

Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

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.

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.

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.
