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!

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+.

Have used the same ones every year for years By Herb

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.

Q&A
Q.How long should the ant guard last
A.

We recommend replacing the repellent each season.

Q.Will the ant guards retain its effectiveness and safe containment in rain? Thank you!
A.

Yes, this product can be used in all weather conditions.

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.
