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!

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.

Useless By Dan

Does nothing...more ants on that feeder than any of the other 8 that I have. Got it free with my last order and was excited about the prospect of it helping with the problem. Never in a million years would I pay $7.50 for this. DOES NOTHING!

Must have for hummingbirds and orioles!!!! By Nancy

The ant guards are fantastic! We have them on all of our hummingbird and oriole feeders and try to make sure we always have a spare or two in case one breaks. We have recommended the ant guard to many friends and they love them too. We like how long they last and withstand any weather.

Q.What retail outlets sell the ant guard?

Local retailers that carry our products can be found by inserting your zip code on our Where to Buy page. We are unable to see what specific products a retailer has on its shelves, so we recommend giving them a call before driving around.

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.
