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 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 RateNOT 100% SQUIRREL PROOF
I bought this feeder last summer. I have observed the squirrel's climbing the pole, take their front paws, hang from the edge, and get to the feed. This is not 100% squirrel proof. No matter where you adjust the spring tension, the squirrels manage to get into the feed.Response From Perky-Pet®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate the time taken to provide this feedback and apologize for the experience. The weight-activated bar will prevent squirrels that sit on it from getting to the seed. We recommend the following steps for additional squirrel-deterrent measures.
Adding cayenne pepper to the seed will not affect birds since they have no sense of taste or smell, but squirrels will be repelled. These critters can jump quite a distance, so place feeders at least 5 feet above the ground, 10 feet away from any jumping off point, and add a baffle above or below the feeder. Safflower seed is attractive to a wide variety of birds, but squirrels generally don't care for it. Adding this to the seed mix can often help.
Please give our Consumer Relations Team a call at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) with additional questions.
Review RateAwesome FeederI had had it with wooden feeders. The squirrels demolished them. I ordered this feeder and I love it. Yes the squirrels tried to get in it. But no success! No more old black birds and few blue jays, they run off the other birds. I am now getting more smaller birds. And what else I love the feeder holds 8lbs. I think by this winter I will order another one.
Review RateGorgeous!I got this for my father as a gift and he said it was too pretty to put outside!
Review RateGreat featuresLove it. Birds like the perch and big capacity. It is squirrel proof. Tight roof and closes upon heavy weight. And so pretty. Looks like a real house.
Review RateGreat birdfeederHad a squirrel problem, not anymore. The squirrels gave up trying to get the food. Also purchased pole and baffle, all work great.
Review RateBigger birds with the spring all the way upspring is to strong, big birds still can eat seed
Otherwise very strong feeder, just wanted to feed the smaller birds
The spring is just like the picture on the left, all the way upResponse From Perky-Pet®Lauren : Consumer Relations RepresentativeThank you for taking the time to share this feedback. The higher the spring lever is placed, the more sensitive the weight activated perch will be.
We appreciate these comments and apologize for this recent experience. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) with any questions.
Review RateGreat quality for the priceHad one like it, that one lasted for years. Hope this one is the same!
Review RateVery nice! Well built! Works great!I bought this to replace a very very old perky pet feeder. It's such a pretty little feeding house! You refill with seed from the top of the roof and it's so easy to take on and off! I almost thought it couldn't be that easy! Birds are happy, squirrels are not! What else is there to say! :)
