Description

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.

Perkypet.com is the top destination to find quality Wild Bird Feeders and Accessories. Perky-Pet® and K-Feeders® 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 perkypet.com. Happy Bird Feeding!

Must have!! By grandma.sherrie

Ant guards are a must for feeders on Shepard hooks. Amazing how well they work and unlike the water moats they don’t need any attention: hang it and the ants are gone. Yay!!!

Not effective By Jo

Well the ants are smaller than the ones that were getting in but they are still floating thick. I agree with Dan.

Very Effective product By Slovakman

Unlike "Useless Dan", I found these to be very effective if used correctly. My feeders hang off shepherd's hooks. I had lots of ants, large and small, some of which found their way into the feeders and evidently 'drowned'. No more ants at all, in/on either of the two hummingbird feeders, though I am still not clear how they work to keep them away. Used to tie an ant insecticide soaked rag at the bottom of the shepherd's hook stand, which did work, depending on weather and sunshine. Now if you could only design one for squirrels.

Q&A
Q.I know permethrin is toxic to bees. I have bee hives and hummingbird feeders. Can I use this ant guard without hurting my bees? They sometimes hang out around the feeders- can the bees come into contact with the insecticide? I want to be sure the bees don’t bring the insecticide back to the hive and kill all my bees. Thank you.
A.

The permethrin is encased in a plastic dome for long lasting protection. It can be confidently used around hummingbirds and bees.

Q.How long will the Ant Guard be effective from the time it is hung?
A.

We recommend replacing the product each season.

Q.Bought your Ant Guard through Amazon. Ants are swarming all over it. And on to the hummingbird feeder. Have used these in the past bought locally and worked very well! These came in a retail box but weren’t in any kind of sealed wrapping. Should they have been?
A.

The packaging of this product does not include a wrapper. Once applied, the AntGuard® should repel the ants within 24 hours. We are very sorry to hear this was not your experience! Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for further assistance. This product is covered by a 30 day return policy and a one year warranty with a copy of the purchase receipt.
