Perky-Pet® AntGuard®

Keep pesky ants away from your hanging bird feeders! This AntGuard® helps ensure the hummingbirds (and not the ants) will enjoy the nectar.

The Perky-Pet® AntGuard® effectively repels ants from feeders and easily mounts in-line with hanging bird feeders.

AntGuard® was accepted for use on hummingbird feeders by the US EPA. Permethrin is used in many household products, including dog flea collars and children’s shampoo, and impregnated fabric is now used in US Military combat uniforms to repel mosquitoes. Like the naturally derived pyrethrin, which originates from chrysanthemums and was the inspiration for this substance, it should be kept away from ponds, streams or other bodies of water due to aquatic organism risk. is the top destination to find quality Wild Bird Feeders and Accessories. Perky-Pet®, K-Feeders and NO/NO® wild bird products are trusted brands to bird lovers everywhere. Interact with nature, relax and build memories that last a lifetime by conveniently ordering from Happy Bird Feeding!

Love AntGuard By Mia

A friend told me about this AntGuard. I wasn't sure what to think but I wanted my humming birds back. So I ordered some and it is the best thing I ever bought! My birds are back and I am ant free. I will always use this product and I recommend it to all my friends and family. Thank you

3 stars By ladybird

I prefer the ant guards which do not have chemicals in them. They do need to be filled with water every 3-4 days, but do not contain a toxic chemical.

Excellent By Lynn

I have been buying the perky pet ant guards for my hummer feeders for close to 10 years- I have anywhere from 4 to 12 hummer feeders plus 3 oriole feeders up every summer. Use lots of sugar and nothing spoils a feeder faster than ants! These work perfect, rain or shine and last more than one season.

Q.Does this product also good on earwigs. They are what I have a problem with in the northwest.

This product is designed to repel ants, it is not recommended for earwigs.

Q.I have basically the same question as above. Does the permethrin ever lose its effectiveness? If so, do you sell replacement inserts for it?

Replacement parts are not available for the Ant Guard. We recommend replacing the product each season.

Q.I cannot determine how long the antguard is expected to last. I assumed one season as it would be stored for perhaps six months. In the reviews I read, others are still working longer. Just wing it as long as it is effective, or replace it annually?

We recommend replacing the ant guard each season.
