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

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

A classic among squirrel proof feeders, this one has ports that close under a squirrel’s weight, preventing the squirrel from raiding the seed supply.

The Perky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone® Wild Bird Feeder features six feeding ports, U-shaped perches and a 2 lb seed capacity. The feeding ports 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. The interior seed tower is surrounded by rustic metalwork.

The six perch/feeding station set-up, coupled with the anti-squirrel technology makes this feeder one of the most economical and convenient squirrel proof feeders on the market! Comes fully assembled.

Remember to clean your squirrel proof feeders once every two weeks with mild soap and water solution.

Feeder Specifications:

  • Dimensions 6" long by 6" wide by 18.25" high
  • 2 lb seed capacity
  • Use with black oil sunflower seed, peanuts, or mixed seed

"Squuirrel's love it" By MK

I purchased this model from Home Depot...Total waste of money & time. My squirrels love it, it gives them all kinds of options to hold on. and feed...I've tried different spring configurations which don't work...If I had my receipt, I'd take it back to home depot. Back to the drawing board on this one..

We apologize for this experience and appreciate the feedback.

The cage on this feeder should drop and close the feeding ports when a squirrel is hanging on it. We recommend placing feeders at least 5 feet above the ground and 10 feet from the nearest launching point to reduce access to the feeder.  Adding cayenne pepper to the seed can deter squirrels that find a way around the deterrent features.  

Please give our Consumer Relations Team a call at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) with any additional questions.

Squirrels find a way By Dick

First one I bought lasted several years (though squirrels often disconnected the springs). A month ago I lost the entire feeder when a squirrel gnawed through the plastic all around the top and dropped the entire thing to the ground. I waited a month, replaced it, and, alas, four days later they have done the same thing again. Seems pointless to buy another. My birds need to find another place to eat.

Hello Dick,

Perky-Pet® has a long history of producing high-quality and reliable bird feeders and products. We apologize for this experience and would be happy to provide assistance.

When persistent squirrels are around, we recommend any of the following deterrent measures to keep them at bay.

- Add cayenne pepper to the seed. It will not affect the birds since they have no sense of smell or taste, but will repel squirrels.
- Use safflower seed (or add it into the mix). It is nutritious and attracts a large variety of birds, but squirrels dislike it.
- Install a baffler below or above a feeder.
- Place feeders at least ten feet away from launching spots, such as trees or decks, and at least five feet above the ground.

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.

Not satisfied!!!!! By Jim

The feeder is not keeping squirrels out. They bend the leaves out of the way. Any suggestions???? Not happy with ptoduct.

Susan : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Jim,

Thank you for taking the time to share this valuable feedback.  We apologize for this experience and are happy to provide additional assistance.

In areas with a high squirrel populations, sometimes a more holistic approach is needed.  We recommend placing the feeder away from any launching points.  Adding cayenne pepper in with the seed, or switching to safflower seed will also help to deter squirrels, as they do not care for the taste.

Please keep in mind that our feeders are covered by a 30 day return policy as well as a one year warranty.  Our Consumer Relations Team is available to offer further help and can be reached at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973).

Squirrels ain't gone, just working harder... By lmj

This product just makes the squirrels work harder. The ports do close as advertised however, the squirrels hang from the feeder, and manually open the ports accessing the birdseed. They are very determined critters. I've tried cayenne pepper and my squirrels seem to be immune to it.

Response From Woodstreambrands

We appreciate the time taken to provide this feedback and apologize for the experience. Squirrels are generally repelled when cayenne pepper is added to the seed. We recommend any of the following addition measures to keep determined squirrels away.


Place feeders at least 5 feet above the ground and 10 feet from any launching points, such as decks or trees. Install a baffler above or below feeders. Use safflower seed, or add it to the mix. It is nutritious and attracts a large variety of birds, but squirrels dislike it.

Squirrels are smarter than engineers By SpiderD

Our acrobatic squirrels easily found a way around your Squirrel-proofing. They simply mount their hind feet on the lower rim of the feeder, hold on to either side with their hands, gnaw away at the feeder ports and have a grand time. The feeder is well over a year old and will not qualify for a replacement, if it qualified it would be back at our retailer.

Response From Woodstreambrands
Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Thank you for sharing this experience. We are pleased to hear that the feeder was able to last over a year, however, we are sorry to learn that ultimately the squirrels damaged the ports.

If the squirrels are able to land on a feeder and bypass the weight activation, the springs may need to be adjusted to a lighter setting. We would also recommend using a baffler above the feeder to deter them from easily landing on top.

We appreciate this feedback and have shared these concerns with our Product Manager. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) with any additional questions.

Dissatisfied with my bird feeder. By Jo

I think this feeder is a piece of cheap junk. I set it out after Christmas and since then I returned it because a squirrel pulled it down and it stayed down as the cover got hung up on spring part and stayed down. So the replacement also got hung-up and got released but the plastic surround has been chewed up by squirrels and the lid has been pulled out of the frame several times and I keep putting it back but the hole the post goes in is very broken up. Very disappointed with the product.

Working thus far, By Sonny 345

Our feeder has been up several days and so far I have not seen a squirrel feeding on it. They are pesky and persistent animals. Other feeders that we have tried seem to be an invitation to dinner. This one seems to attract the birds that we wish to invite, but we have given up mixed feed and are purchasing black oil sunflower seeds, thistle, and safflower seeds. I am very happy with this feeder and am

Works but not squirrel proof By KF2TI
Bought several of these and forthe most parts. Seems the squirrels found that if you yank the metal leaves by the feed ports, they come off and then allow full access to the seeds. I realize the feeders have year warranty, but who keeps receipts. I'll try some HB weld and see it I can get them to stay on. Other than that, birds have accepted them completely. Easy to feed, and maintain
