Review RateSuper great!I love this product. Bought a second one after getting the first. Thumbs up!
Review RateFantastic Customer ServiceI emailed PerkyPet with a problem I had with one of my feeders. Not only was my emailed received but was responded too extremely timely and effectively by Rachel. She understood my problem, addressed my problem and resolved my problem almost in real-time. What great customer service and a wonderful team staff member. This is the reason all of my feeders are PerkyPet. I have 5! Great company and great service. Thanks Jeff
Review RateSquirrel-B-Gone = Feed-B-Gone
I should have listened to the reviews. I have similar models, but none as cheap and useless as this one. Even on the lightest setting, freestanding, the local red squirrel didn't close the feeder ports. He/she ate as much as they wanted, whenever they wanted, until they smashed it to the ground. What a waste of money.
Review RateDon't buy this feeder to stop squirrels!Very disappointed in this product in spite the design looking as if it would work well. Squirrel can hang on the side and still manage to get seed out. I have it on a pole away from trees with a slinky on the pole. They still get on it. They have manages to pull the top off and break the spring that holds the top on. I wired that back together but then they were able to pull the whole top, wire, hanger and all out of the tube allowing them to knock the tube to the ground. I got it as a Christmas gift so no chance of returning!! Very disappointed!! Not sure I would trust other Perky Pet products now!
Review RateWorks wellWorks well to keep squirrel away when suspended
Review RateDoes the job for me!I have two of these and love them. I also feed the squirrels and have feeders for them right nearby. Everyone gets to eat now, without competition.
Review RateVery dissatisfied with Squirrel Stumper.I also bought 2 of the Squirrel Stumper. They are a joke. Does not stop the squirrels from feeding off it.
Review RatePretty, functional, but maybe my squirrels are too fat and smart?
Okay, so this feeder is very pretty, and the spring mechanism worked very well on my feeder for about a month or so. Unfortunately, however, the squirrels were able to defeat it by hanging on to it by the cage, and eventually, after doing this enough times, their weight pulled the top right off the feeder, and now it will not stay on at all. A more secure threaded top, or a removable filling cap that did not comprise the entire top of the feeder would have been a better choice for this feeder. Hopefully future models will implement a better design.
Review Ratesmart squirrel
Birds love it--but so do the squirrels. They hang upside down by their back paws which closes the feeding openings. Then, with their mouths close to one of the lowest openings, they push their body weight up with one paw against the bottom lip of the feeder so they can stick their mouths into the opening and feed. I wish I could send you a video. The only good thing: one of them has done it so much that when he jumped to the limb which is his normal exit route, his weight was too much and he fell off the limb.Response From WoodstreambrandsRachel : Consumer Relations Representative
Oh no! Those are some crafty squirrels indeed. We are sorry to hear about this. To further help prevent these pesky squirrels from gaining access to your feeder, we recommend adding a squirrel baffler. We also recommend hanging your feeder at least 12 feet from the tree trunk or limb and at least 4 feet up from the ground to help deter squirrels. Please feel free to give us a ring directly at 1-855-737-5973 for more tips and tricks on squirrel prevention!
Review RateAwesome bird feeder, definitely squirrel proof.
I don't understand all these negative reviews. I have owned this feeder for 8+ years and it works great. When a squirrel gets on it the "cage" slides down covering the holes. I have never had a squirrel "pop" the top off. This feeder is squirrel - proof and very durable. Don't pay attention to the "Negative - Nancy's". Buy it, you won't regret it.
