First, is the feeder’s weight-activated Seed Shield™, which is calibrated to support the weight of birds but not squirrels. When squirrels try to gain access to the perches, the ornamental leaves close off the ports under their weight. Birds can sit on every perch without activating it. In addition, the twist-lock cap prevents squirrels from lifting the lid, while the metal frame discourages chewing around the ports.
To ensure a 100% squirrel proof feeder, placement is key! Hang the feeder with at least 18 inches of clearance on all sides so squirrels can’t easily reach the ports without activating the perch.Attract More Birds With less competition from squirrels, birds won’t be able to resist the Perky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone® III Bird Feeder!

Review RateNice bird feeder
I like this because you can put 3 kinds of bird seed in the 3 channels. Only been up for a few days but so far no problem from squirrels. We'll see.
Review RateToo Bad Replacement Parts Aren't Available
The feeder is great & deserving of 4+ stars. However, the fact that replacement parts are not available dropped my rating to 3 stars. The metal part of my Perky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone® III Wild Bird Feeder is in great shape (it started to rust, but I cleaned & painted it with Rustoleum), but I need to replace the plastic parts. Looking at questions about the feeder, it appears that replacement parts aren't available.Response From WoodstreambrandsLauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing this feedback. We appreciat these comments and have shared these concerns with our Product Managers for review. While replacement parts are not available, the feeder as a whole is covered under a one year replacement policy.
Review RateNice product but missing a part
The feeder is very nice, we have the Red barn style. Perhaps you could let us know where to find the inside roof bracket, ours is missing upon opening it to install it on the post. The feeder works, but it would be nice to secure the roof a bit better. Thank You for taking a look. S
Review RateDon't last
Bought in March 2020. We live in the city. By Sept 2020 . Squirrel have chewed on metal springs ,that lower to close of hole. Now at end of October 2020. It's shut, bird feed just fells out the holes. This weekend just throwing out. Had 8 months. Didn't last.Response From WoodstreambrandsKathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
We're sorry to hear about this! To help discourage squirrels, we recommend placing feeders at least 4 ft off the ground and 8 ft away from launching points like trees, buildings, and fences. For assistance with our 1-year replacement policy, please contact us at 855-737-5973, we're happy to help!
Review RatePoor design
Poor quality. It will perhaps last 30 days, but mine did not last 60 days. Squirrels destroyed it. 5 ports destroyed in 45 days. If you have to rely on perfect placement of the feeder, then it is a design flaw and should not be advertised as squirrel resistant. I have lots of feeders. Any feeder can work if squirrels can’t get to it so Perky Pet should not just suggest improving placement. Fix the product. Metal should be around the ports. Warranty is very poor. My other feeders are squirrel buster feeders with lifetime free parts - no receipt required. I paid more for them, but 5 years later they still work great.Response From WoodstreambrandsRachel : Consumer Relations Representative
Oh no, we are sorry to hear about this experience! We appreciate you taking the time to share this feedback with us and will be sure to pass along these comments to the Product Manager for further review. We are only ever looking to improve upon our feeders, which is why your feedback is so critical. It is good to know that this feeder is backed by a 30 day return policy and 1 year replacement policy.

Review RateSquirrel feeder
Worked great for a couple weeks before the squirrels destroyed it. Not even close to squirrel resistant. The squirrels ate around the ports and then just emptied the feeder. Just like other buyers. The squirrels line up like a buffet. The springs also detach and allow the squirrels to keep working away. My other squirrel resistant feeders from other companies are five years old and still going strong. For those, if I need parts, I just call and they send parts for free for the lifetime of the device. No receipt needed.Response From WoodstreambrandsKathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
We're sorry to hear the furry thieves damaged your feeder. To help keep squirrels away, we recommend hanging feeders at least 4 ft off the ground and 8 ft away from launching points like trees. These feeders are covered by a 1-year replacement policy. Please contact us directly at 855-737-5973 with any questions!
Review RateDefinitely recommend
I’ve had this for about 5 weeks now and love it. The squirrels have attempted to dine but were unsuccessful and finally gave up. But they now have a peanut bar that I installed just for them (and the scrub jays!). I love how many birds can feed at the same time. I only wish it came in green, which would contrast the birds a little more.
Review RateEasy feeder for squirrels.
I liked this feeder and got it. for my birds last year. It took two months for the squirrels to eat away the plastic inside each feeding port. Thus due to ease of reach for squirrels, bird food lasts less than a day.Response From WoodstreambrandsRachel : Consumer Relations Representative
Oh no! We are sorry to hear about this. To ensure that squirrels keep their claws off and their mouths far away from stealing that precious bird seed, placement is key! We strongly suggest hanging the feeder with at least 18 inches of clearance on all sides so squirrels can’t easily reach the ports without activating the perch. Additionally, if you are anything less than completely satisfied with your bird feeder, you may return it within 30 days of receipt for a product replacement or refund of your purchase price.

Review RateI'm glad I didn't pay for this!
I received my first Squirrel Be Gone feeder as a Christmas present. Within a month, the squirrels had gnawed around many of the lower plastic openings where the birds feed. This caused the feeder to just dump seed out, as the shielded part of the opening had been destroyed. Perky Pet sent me a replacement. I epoxied thin copper washers to the outside of the feeder openings. The squirrels then began to gnaw at the bottom plastic of the feeder, so I cut some sheet metal to cover that area. After reading other poor reviews, I wish Perky Pet would reinforce their product. It sounds like they have reduced the quality of it over time.Response From WoodstreambrandsKathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your experience! We appreciate all feedback, as it helps us continue to improve our feeders.

Review RateSquirrels have demolished 4 of these!
So far the squirrels have demolished 4 of these. I have one left and just waiting for them to chew through the plastic and all the food falls out.Response From WoodstreambrandsKathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
We're sorry to hear the furry thieves have been damaging your feeders! Placement is key in deterring squirrels, and feeders located at least 4 ft off the ground and 8 ft away from launching points are unlikely to become targets for a meal.

Bird Houses - These are a good way to attract those species of birds that nest in holes. These structures should be made of an untreated wood (pine, cedar, etc.) and should have ventilation and drainage holes. It should be durable, and easy to check and clean.
Keeping your feeder clean and full of fresh bird seed is very important to the health of visiting birds. It is recommended that you clean your wild bird feeder every two weeks.
