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.

Review RateWorks great
This is a great product.... Can't understand why the negative comments. In our 3rd or 4th year of use with no problems. If the hook is too small simply add another from a piece of scrap wire, or an old hanger.....sadly some folks have no imagination.
Review RateDidn't deter ants
I purchased an Ant Guard last Thursday from Lowes and hung it up on Friday. By Sunday morning ants had moved into our hummingbird feeder and called it their own: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1DxyLj21KAsPJKgRUfGXkMvgZGOWCF0H-/view?usp=sharingResponse From Perky-Pet®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateStill going strong after
I've been using these things for years and years and absolutely love them. They work like magic to keep ants away from your hummingbird or oriole feeders. You don't have to make sure to keep water in them like moat types of deterrents -- they are set-and-forget. And they last for several years. I would think the active ingredient would peter out, but I have some that are still going strong after at least five years. I'm not crazy about the red color so I usually spray paint mine a nice copper or bronze, which adds a touch o' class to the garden. My only complaint is they are a bit on the pricey side, but otherwise, a welcome addition to our yard.
Review RateIt just doesn’t work, I don’t know what else to say
The small ants are still getting to feeder, it must stop the large ants, not the small ones. I’m taking it back, it just doesn’t work.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RatePoor design
I can't get the bottom platform to pull down on either of the 2 guards I bought. They're stuck no matter how hard I pull or how I try to unpry it from the main body. I'd not recommend this item as I now have 2 products I can't use.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review Rategreat idea and effective but needs improvement
This ant guard itself works very well. My big complaint: the plastic hooks on the top of the ant trap are not big enough to put on a shepherds hook! What I have to do is place it on a larger hook which makes the feeder very close to the ground for other critters ie chipmunks, etc. to party on. The top hook is also so cheaply made they brake very easily, therefore I've had to replace the traps several times a season because there is no way to hang it. If top hook was larger and metal I would rate this 5+.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateHave used the same ones every year for years
We have used the same (style) ant guard, stamped with the name "Line Guard," for probably 15 to 20 years; Not new ones every year; just the same ones year after year and we never have had an ant problem. My wife inadvertently hung one closed upside down this spring and the ants attacked! But when I set it up correctly, no more ants! Now if someone would come up with a yellow jacket guard, we'd be all set.
Review RateThis sucks...and i was hoping it would work
This product would be amazing, sadly because the holding parts are plastic they break at a wind noticeResponse From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
