Review RateYou need one of these
Love this feeder... and have all three in my backyard. I live in DT Toronto where squirrels are as bad as raccoons...sometimes worse. Never had an issue with the feeders being ravaged by the urban wildlife here. Thank you to Perky-pet for a stylish, fun and all-around excellent feeder!
Review RatePart of the process...
I bought one of these a couple weeks ago and just read the reviews. Is everyone lazy? Half the fun of having one of these is the “Action and Re-Action Process” I don’t have squirrels but mice and rats picking up the feed landing on the ground now. I have Hawks and Owls now 24/7, It’s a party back there. I drilled a small hole and I placed a straight rod that rides down with the feed that tells me when it’s close to empty. I purchased a smart Rat Trap that alerts me on my phone when I have a dead intruder. Good Times, Everyone needs a hobby.
Review Rate4 stars
This made the most sense at Home Depot as far as selection goes. Metal design is what convinced me. I had to make a gauge to let me know when it got empty. Straight wire rod that would float down with the seeds. Took about 4 days before the birds told their buddies and “Game On” . Backyard Party! I have to fill it up every other day now. If you miss a day you get the stink eye from the birds...REALLY!
Review RateBlue metal 1lb metal tube feeder
I hung mine higher wher the Squirrels can't reach. Should have some slide that holds the roof in position though. The birds empty it every day so don't need a bigger visibility slot. Squirrels are smart and will always find a way. I noticed same store had some with metal perches and some all metal in plastic.... stick with the metal in plastic ones. I'm expecting it to hold up. Bbears are tough on my feeders too.
Review RateSquirrels tear up
I too had squirrels totally dismantle this feeder and it was off the ground and away from any trees. Wish it had metal parts that the squirrels couldn’t chew off or perky pet sold replacement parts. Have only had a couple of months. A waste of money. Sad cause I live the color and design.Response From Perky-Pet®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateNeeds a clear view of food
Solid feeder, but NO WAY to tell what the level of bird seed is in the tube. Should have developed this with a narrow viewing window or something to let us know when we need to reloadResponse From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateReally poor design!!
Did anyone try this in a real backyard before marketing it? Every morning the squirrels pull the ports out and I have to locate the ports and end caps on the ground, and re-assemble the whole thing. I am going to super glue it all together, which defeats the "easy to clean" feature. Sorry I not only bought one, but two of these.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for providing this feedback! We are sorry for this experience and have shared these comments with our Product Managers. To help prevent squirrel access, we recommend hanging the feeder at least 12 feet away from any launching point (tree, fence, deck..etc) and four feet off the ground. Installing a baffler above or below the feeder will also help to throw the squirrels off course.
