Description

Perky-Pet Squirrel-Be-Gone Wild Bird Feeder features six feeding ports, with U-shaped perches for birds to flock to. 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 and boasts a two-pound seed capacity.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Birds at my feeder look sick, what should I do?

The best thing to do is to stop feeding the birds temporarily. Remove the feeders and throw out all of the seed. Thoroughly wash your feeders. Remove all debris from under your feeder. Do not touch the sick birds. Refill all of your feeders and resume feeding.

How do I prevent seeds from sprouting under my feeder?

You will need to sterilize your seed to prevent it from germinating. This will not alter the attractiveness or the nutritional value of the seed in any way.Here are two methods:Conventional Oven: Place the seed on a baking sheet and cook for 30 minutes at 300°F.Microwave Oven: Place seed in a paper bag. Cook on high power for 5 minutes.

Why does the seed in my feeder get moldy?

Mold is caused by a heavy rain, driving sleet or snow plugging the feeding ports and allowing water to dampen the seed. Always clean, dry and refill your feeders after heavy weather. You may also want to try placing 1/4" of cat litter in the bottom of the feeder to absorb excess moisture.

  • Birds Do Not Use It, Poor Design

    By on

    This bird feeder was going to replace my two aging tube feeder which are use 24-7 year around. I could not get the bird to use the new feeders even when I removed the old ones. The birds just went some were else. It appears the it does not feed the seeds downward too big in the middle and the perches were not better the posts. It is head to the garbage.

  • No more pigeons!

    By on

    We don't have a squirrel problem, but do have a problem with pigeons that bully the little birds. Originally I bought it because I liked the way it looked. Who knew pigeons would trip the spring!!? Pigeons gave up and are gone, gone, gone! The finches love it now that they can eat in peace.

  • Worked for awhile

    By on

    Bird feeder 0 Squirrels 1. As in won. For a while the squirrels were deterred but then they figured out how to open the lid and eventually started chewing through the plastic when it isfull. As the food dissipates they hang upside down from the top so their weight does not trigger it to close clever. Bought a baffle which fixed that for a moment now they know how to lift the mechanism to feast. They also spend time chewing the plastic at the openings. They won on this one will not be filling it anymore. Too bad birds love it. People say they do not get cardinals but I have a male and female that visit everyday.

  • Determined squirrel.

    By on

    Not squirrel proof enough. The squirrel managed to get the spring unhooked and get the top open. I put it back together and secured it with tape. Still usable.Chewy service is great.

  • Best feeders I own for stopping squirrels

    By on

    I love this feeder. BUT, you have to adjust down the tension of the two adjustable springs!!!! When you unpackage it, unhook the springs from their adjustment holes and let the hook just stay in the small hole it should be through. I say "should" because sometimes I unpack and the spring is not throught the hole in the tab. Do this and you will be very happy. Test the travel on the outer cage for smooth and light resistance. If 2 larger birds land on it (like grackles) the cage comes down. Larger birds can feed, but not swarm and raid them. Perfect for what I want.

  • Great Feeder

    By on

    Bought another one after watching the squirrels getting so mad that they couldn't get to the seeds. Plus the seed wells are deeper and the birds don't have seeds going all over the ground.

  • Have yet to see a squirrel

    By on

    The bird feeder is living up to it's name. The birds are using it but the squirrels don't seem to try. It's easy to use and I've seen a bunch of birds eating the seeds. Really pleased.

  • Great to keep squirrels out of bird feed

    By on

    After trying many different bird feeders, I would recommend it very highly . It lets the small birds feed and keeps the squirrels out. Big birds can also feed such as the blue jays.However, when the black birds come to feed, they are messy and spill the seed all over the ground. Then the squirrels pick up the spilled seed off the ground, but at least they can not get in to the feeder.

    Bird feeder was packed with a 20lb bag of Bird seed? Of course, the top of the feeder was bent!

  • Cheaply made and not chipmunk resistant!

    By on

    It has an attractive appearance and worked well for about a month-until the squirrels figured out how to take off the feeder lid and eat away at the plastic rim so as to have access to the seeds from the top of the feeder. I tried to tape on the lid but to do it securely enough means that refilling the feeder is a nightmare. Also, although a squirrel may be heavy enough to cause all the feeding portals to close, the chipmunks can easily climb around and eat from all the portals! Answer: I am now looking for a squirrel baffle for my "squirrel proof" feeder!
