Perky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone® II Home-Style Bird Feeder
Perky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone II Home-Style Bird Feeder. Attract everything from cardinals, finches, flickers, and grackles to grosbeaks, jays, juncos, and kinglets--even sparrows, wrens, and woodpeckers. Best of all, this wild bird feeder provides an optimal feeding station for birds--without catering to those sneaky squirrels.
A charming addition to any outdoor space, this beautiful feeder features a weight-activated perch bar that closes to prevent squirrels from accessing the seed. Adjustable springs can be calibrated to accommodate different bird sizes and keep away nuisance birds and squirrels.
Easy to Fill and Use
This innovative Squirrel-Be-Gone II wild bird feeder comes fully assembled and makes a lovely addition to any personal collection or a thoughtful gift idea. This feeder holds up to 8 pounds of mixed, black oil sunflower, hulled sunflower, or safflower seed. After filling the bird feeder, simply hang it in the yard or mount it to a post, and watch as your feathered friends fly in to feast.
This wild bird feeder comes with a metal hanger for hanging near a back deck, porch, patio, or a window overlooking a garden or landscaped area in your yard. Choose a location that not only provides a great view, but that is also bird friendly. Birds prefer an open space, so they can easily move from one feeding port to the next. They also like to be in a location that gets both sun and partial shade during the day. An ideal location will be between 5 and 8 feet off the ground and within 15 feet of nearby coverage, like bushes and shrubs, so birds feel safe and protected from predators.
Cleaning the Feeder
Be sure to keep this bird feeder clean and filled with fresh seed to ensure happy birds and return visits. Perky-Pet recommends checking this bird feeder once a week for insects or mold and cleaning it every few weeks with a mild soap and water solution.

Review RateI will chalk this up as a loss of $50.
It did not deter my little friends because they are so determined. It did, however, keep them from spilling massive amounts of feed. My other creature, a nightly visiting raccoon, managed to dislodge the holder causing it to dangle and my birds stayed away. Also, my larger birds, the cardinals, struggled or felt unsure when attempting to perch. When the feed gets wet it is just one more setback too many.Response From Perky-Pet®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to share this experience. This feeder is designed to prevent squirrels and larger birds from feeding when adjusting the sensitivity of the weight activation. If larger animals are raiding the feeder at night, additional methods of deterring them may be necessary.
We appreciate this feedback and have shared these concerns with our Product Manager. Our feeders are backed by a 30 day return policy and covered under a one year warranty. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) with any questions.
Review RateNot squirrel determent
Did NOT deter squirrels. They hang from the roof with back feet and push down on the bar with front feet and eat away!!Response From Perky-Pet®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate the time taken to provide this feedback and apologize for the experience.
When pesky squirrels find a way around a deterrent feature, additional measures can be taken. We recommend adding cayenne pepper to the seed. This will not affect birds, but will repel squirrels. Safflower seed is a nutritious meal that attracts a wide variety of birds, but squirrels do not like this seed.

I just purchased your feeder. The red pole mount and screws that were inside the feeder I have no idea what to do with them. I see no holes on the feeder where the mount can be attached. Please advise.Response From Perky-Pet®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateGreat bird feeder
This is my second one. It keeps the squirrels out, yet the birds drop enough seeds so that the little buggers get something to eat after all. I don't begrudge the squirrels eating, but but I don't want them emptying the feeder, either. This feeder has a large capacity and is fairly good at keeping the rain out, although strong winds will force rain into the feeding tray. All in all I love it.
Review RatePut a feeder on each side of the little "house".
I have the Perky-Pet Squirrel-Be-Gone II Home Style Wild Bird Feeder. I like the way it keeps the squirrels out of the food. I actually have not seen a squirrel get on the tension bar because they come over the top and usually slide off the feeder roof and hit the ground. The only improvement I can suggest is that there is a feeder tray on both sides of the feeder so that more birds can feed at the same time. When I look out and see birds eating at the feeder, I see other sitting on the ground, (it looks like they are waiting in line to get to the feeder.) I enjoy watching birds at the feeder and don't like the squirrels invading their space. Thank you for making these feeders. I am looking at others to purchase.
Review RateFrustrated Rodents
I ordered the two-pack that I received promptly. However, they were not packaged to withstand the abuse of UPS. The first one had a cracked window and the replacement that was sent had a damaged corner. I did setup the undamaged feeder and the birds and I love. However, not everybody is happy with the feeder.
Review RateThe real deal !
Received my Squirrel proof feeders. Filled with sunflower seeds . Birds came after 4 hours and the feeder was full of activity. Mr squirrel spotted the activity and decided to investigate, note this was the same squirrel that chewed my Redwood feeder to splinters. The squirrel attempted to get at feed. The attempt was a direct attack on the front, the hinge closed, no luck, the squirrel tried to reach into the feeder, however it's Weight closed the hinge on its leg,, OUCH.. no luck..and no more squirrel . This feeder is what it is advertised .
Review RateHappy with them
I love my new bird feeders. The first week the squirrels did try to get to the seeds but not too successful. Then the birds started to feed from them. Every once in awhile a squirrel will attempt to get to the seeds but they give up. So I am glad that I bought these feeders.
Review RateNo birds yet
My birds haven't come to this feeder yet, and I've had it hanging for a week. I bought it to replace a cylindrical feeder, so I'm wondering if they're being overly suspicious of it. I put some peanut butter on the perch and sprinkled bird seed over it yesterday, hoping they would smell and taste the food and be attracted to it, but I don't believe any birds have come to it yet. Any suggestions?Response From Perky-Pet®Anthony : Consumer Relations Representative
Birds are creatures of habit that may take time to warm up to new feeders that are placed in the yard. If other feeders are hanging nearby, try removing them temporarily so that the birds will be encouraged to approach this new one. Placing a shiny pie pan with some seed in it beneath the feeder may also help attract birds' attention to it.

Review RateGlad I Purchased
Been very happy with the red Perky-Pet Squirrel-Be-Gone feeder purchased over a year ago. For a late Christmas presents, my girlfriend and I purchased the Perky-Pet Squirrel-Be-Gone 2-Pack. So now I have the green feeder and she the new red one. Aside from being attractive and very well made, they do keep the larger birds from getting and hogging the seed. Can't say a bad thing about them.
