Perky-Pet® AntGuard® Keep those pesky ants away from your hummingbird feeders! This ant guard helps ensure the birds (and not the ants) will enjoy the fresh nectar. The Perky-Pet® AntGuard® effectively repels ants from feeders and easily mounts in-line with hanging bird feeders. AntGuard® begins working immediately and should stop all sweet-eating ant activity within 24 hours under optimal conditions.
Perky-Pet® Ant Guard
 
How it Works
How it Works Ants are attracted to the sweet-tasting nectar inside your feeders. As ants forage for nectar and make their way down the hanging hook to the feeder, they enter the AntGuard®. Inside is a disc containing a powerful ant repellent, permethrin, which drives them away. The active ingredient has been proven safe around birds, pets, and people when used as directed. 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.
 
Fast Acting and Long Lasting AntGuard® begins working immediately to drive away sweet-eating ants. In optimal conditions, all ant activity should stop within 24 hours. The permethrin disc is encased in a durable plastic dome, keeping it inaccessible to feeding birds, while also protecting it from rain so it lasts longer. Under normal conditions, AntGuard will provide a full season of ant control.
Fast Acting and Long Lasting
 
Easy To Mount
Easy to Mount For your convenience, the Perky-Pet® AntGuard® easily mounts in-line with hanging hummingbird feeders and oriole feeder. To install AntGuard, extend the lower baffle of the dome. Then attach AntGuard below your hanging hook and above your hummingbird feeder. Note, you should not hang it on feeders weighing more than 10 lb.

So far so good. By Dale
I've only had the feeder out a few days. I did have trouble getting the guard to open, but it finally came. I use zip ties to attach the guard to my shepherd's hook pole.

Really good product. By Sandy

Bought my first one of these last summer. It worked so well I just ordered one for each of my additional feeders for this year. As for the problem with the size of the hook, go to your local hardware store and purchase small zip ties. Strong and adjustable, I have used them for years in various sizes for many, many applications.

Works great By GRSR

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.

Didn't deter ants By Emily

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=sharing

Still going strong after By Raymondo

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.

It just doesn’t work, I don’t know what else to say By Roy

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.

Poor design By Kelly

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.

great idea and effective but needs improvement By pat

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+.

The bottom of this ant guard should easily slide open. It it doesn't, we recommend exchanging it at the retailer, or contacting us directly at 855-737-5973 for additional assistance.

A.

Thsi product will work one full hummingbird season and should be replaced each year.
