Resists Squirrels
Resists Squirrels To offer defense against squirrels, this feeder boasts multiple great features. First, this feeder’s weight-activated system is calibrated to support the weight of birds but not squirrels. When squirrels try to gain access to the perches, the cage is pulled down, causing the decorative leaves to cover the ports. In addition, the metal cage prevents squirrel chewing and damage.
Accommodates Multiple Birds With less competition from squirrels, birds won’t be able to resist the Perky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone® Feeder! It features six feeding ports evenly spaced around the reservoir so multiple birds can dine at the same time and you can enjoy a better view. Plus, birds will enjoy taking a break on its comfortable U-shaped perches.

Not Squirrel proof By Sandy

I hoped this Feeder would keep the squirrels from consuming all the seed but they chewed it up and completely ruined it!

Disappointed By Clasina

First I have purchased many of your products in the past and have been satisfied with them until I purchase the Squirrel-Be-Gone Feeder on 01-11-19. I did notice squirrels on the feeder, but noticed they were not getting any seed at first. Just filled my feeder this morning and noticed that the smart squirrels have chewed around the bottom of the u shape opening and now are happily feeding on this feeder. I have my receipt from my local hardware Ace store and will be calling you in the morning. Suggestion is to make the cylinder out of glass, or placing a wide metal rim around the opening. Not sure a replacement would be an option until the design has been corrected or I will need to continue to replace when this happens again.

No more pesky Squirrels and bully Cowbirds By Robert

This is a revision from my first review. I have two of these feeders, had problems at first, birds seemed to get confused and not use the feeder, but given some time right now every feeding station has a bird on it on both feeders. Saw the squirrel hanging off it once, seems the ground seed was better. Works great for small birds, this is also good for keeping Cowbirds away. Cowbirds are like locust wiping out seed and bulling the small birds, they're too large to fit on the perch and get their big heads in there.

Thoroughly Frustrated Squirrels By BirdFeeder2

On my second Perky-Pet feeder, same model. The first model lasted over 9 years, until the plastic on the bottom port started to crack. If you set the spring to the third hole from the top of leaves, you should have good success with keeping the squirrels out. The squirrels in my neighborhood have been thoroughly frustrated with this feeder. Of course, the hot pepper suet didn't help them either! All kinds of birds have been seen at this feeder; blue jays, finches, northern cardinals, nuthatches, carolina chickadee, titmice, house sparrows, red bellied and downy woodpeckers. Those pesky European starlings though are too big for the perch (another plus for this feeder).

Modification By Jim

Plastic top hanging pins (snap fit) separate too easily from plastic square feed tube. Had to modify with copper wire along pin, then thru tube hole and secure on cap top with twist. Have to untwist to refill.

Not squirrel proof By DJ

I've got mine adjusted for the lightest weight and when the squirrel jumps on it doesn't close or even move. A nice feeder but not squirrel proof.

not happy By Claudie

Hi, Just wanted to tell you that the smart squirrel in my back yard found a way to get at the seeds. He chewed the plastic around the holes so now he can get at the seeds anytime so it is no longer squirrel proof. Regards Claudette

Response From Woodstreambrands
Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Claudie,

We are sorry to hear that you have not experienced the high level of success we typically see with this feeder. To help deter squirrels, mix in a bit of cayenne pepper. They will not like the spicy taste, but it won't bother the birds. Or, try safflower seeds instead of sunflower seeds, squirrels find safflower seeds bitter. These feeders are covered by our 30-day guarantee and a 1-year replacement policy with a copy of the purchase receipt.

Huge Disappointment By Lmac

This feeder is a huge disappointment. Not only can the squirrels outsmart the metal cage mechanism, they have now chewed the plastic port opening and the feeder will no longer hold the seed. Only used for 5 weeks!

Design flaw, perches too short By Gracie

Very disappointing to see birds struggle to try to perch and feed. Design flawed-perches too short and bird try to flutter and feed to no avail. Any ideas on how to extend perch? Purchased a while back and no receipt.

disappointed By LK

Mine warded off the squirrels and birds due to it lets water in the bottom 2 wholes so food rots. Top holes a few birds still used but ruined the food. Only had the feeder a few weeks and couldn't figure out why I hadn't had to fill the feeder yet until further inspection so food was rotting.

Response From Woodstreambrands
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello,

Thank you for providing this feedback! We are very sorry for this experience. To help keep moisture from entering the seed chamber, we recommend sheltering the feeder from strong winds. Placing a baffler such as the Perky-Pet® Transparent Squirrel Baffler (Model 340) above the feeder will also help keep the rain and tree debris out of the seed. We recommend cleaning the feeder at least once every two weeks to keep the seed fresh and the feeder inviting.
