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!

Excellent By Lynn

I have been buying the perky pet ant guards for my hummer feeders for close to 10 years- I have anywhere from 4 to 12 hummer feeders plus 3 oriole feeders up every summer. Use lots of sugar and nothing spoils a feeder faster than ants! These work perfect, rain or shine and last more than one season.

Perky-Pet AntGuards are the very best product!!!! By Birdie70lover

My husband and I have ordered the ant guards for all of our hummingbird feeders. We usually order 10-12 each spring. This year we ordered 12. We have NEVER had an ant on any of our feeders for the many years we have used them. Our order, which also included 3 cleaning mops, arrived very promptly after we placed the order online. We are highly pleased with the products from Perky-Pet that we have used over many years. We are so happy that you are selling them!!!!

Really works By Sioux
I have had these for years but since we moved to Arizona the heat has had affects on the plastic so I am making sure that if another one breaks, I'll have plenty to replace it with.

Amazed at how perfectly these ant guards work By Robert
I have used these ant guards through two seasons now ... not a single ant has been able to impenetrate them. I tried just about everything before ... even putting ant poison in the moat areas ... but during rains would wash out and then dry out and ants would invade. Then the flower and bee guards would turn black from the ants and washing them became tedious. Was skeptical as to if these would work ... bought one first and in using, it became the only ant free bird feeder of 8 I hung. Bought 7 more ... all feeders ant free from then on. ... Will be buying for my parents who also have many feeders as a gift in the near future.

Parts are always what I need!! By Gail in West Texas
I own two Oriole feeders (that the hummingbirds use also) that need to be re-vamped on a regular basis. It's wonderful that Perky Pet has the parts for these feeders that I can rely on. This time the bees were getting into the feeders and Perky Pet had the parts with bee guards that I needed. Thank YOU!!!

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.

Q.I cannot determine how long the antguard is expected to last. I assumed one season as it would be stored for perhaps six months. In the reviews I read, others are still working longer. Just wing it as long as it is effective, or replace it annually?

We recommend replacing the ant guard each season.
