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.

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.

  • 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 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.

  • 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!

  • Excellent feeder, squirrels can't defeat it.

    Works just the like name implies. Typical Chewy transaction. Good price and selection, the only way shipment could be faster is if they opened a warehouse in my backyard.

  • Cheaply Made

    By on

    Approximately after 8 months of using this feeder the plastic insert by the bottom where the base holds in the birdseed developed a crack that finally gave out altogether and rendered this feeder useless. For the price I would think the company would have used a heavier gauge plastic that wouldn't dry brittle in the sun and/or develop cracks as this one has. Inner spring that holds outside cage also very rusted and if the plastic did not crack and render this feeder useless it would be a matter of time that this spring would fail making feeder also useless. Very disappointed and I do not recommend this feeder.

  • Squirrels feast on it

    By on

    Squirrels drained the bird seed out of it. The spring tension is way too high. A squirrel was clapped onto it and the feed covers never came down. The squirrel would have to be the size of a cat to get the covers to drop down. Good idea ... really BAD engineering.
