Perky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone® II Home Style Bird Feeder

Make sure that the seed stays for the birds with this Perky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone® II Home Style Bird Feeder. This unique feeder is equipped with weight-activated perches, which means when an animal that's heavier than the bird the seed is intended for comes to visit, the perch goes down and closes the feeding ports, blocking off the seed. It has an adorable house design, complete with a roof, faux chimney, and front porch perch, and there are strategically placed cutouts that look like windows and a front door — all finished in a bold green color that adds to the country charm.

Squirrel-Proof Design

Squirrel-Proof Design

To offer defense against squirrels, this feeder boasts multiple great features. First, is the feeder’s weight-activated perch, which is calibrated to support the weight of birds but not squirrels. When squirrels try to gain access to the seed, the ports close off under their weight. Birds can sit on the perch without activating it. The sensitivity can also be adjusted to keep out larger nuisance birds. In addition, the weathervane lid lock prevents squirrels from lifting the lid, while the metal frame discourages chewing.

To ensure a 100% squirrel proof feeder, placement is key! Hang the feeder with at least 18 inches of clearance on all sides so squirrels can’t easily reach the ports without activating the perch.

Durable and Versatile

This Perky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone® II Home Style Bird Feeder has an all-metal construction designed to stand up to the weather and squirrel invaders. The metal is powder-coated in an charming green color and provides enhanced rust resistance and durability. This feeder can be hung or pole mounted for versatile placement anywhere around your yard.

Attractive, Rustic Style

Birds and bird lovers alike can’t deny the charm of this delightful feeder. This unique feeder is styled after a country home, complete with a bold green finish, metal roof, and windows and door. The large perch even resembles a front porch. The roof-style lid is even topped with a chimney, which conveniently locks the lid in place.

Easy to Clean

Cleaning and filling is an effortless process thanks to the feeder’s convenient design. The removable roof and large opening make this feeder easy to fill with up to 8 lb capacity of black-oil sunflower seed, mixed seed, hulled sunflower seed, or safflower seed. Cleaning the feeder is also easy! We recommend cleaning the feeder at least every two weeks and regularly checking the seed to ensure it is free of insects and mold.

I love this feeder.

Aug 20, 2023
I love this feeder. I have had it up for months, refill it twice a week. I have it hanging from a shepherd's hook. Just went out to refill it and . . . a MOUSE was inside! I'd say been in there some time, as it was sluggish. Plenty of food but no water. Had to set the feeder on the ground, tip it, and bang the bottom to get the mouse to run out. Now I wonder how to keep the mouse out in future. This feeder is great at keeping the squirrels out, now I have to cope with a mouse?! Always something.

Great feeder, especially if you want a feeder that holds a lot of seed. I know most people are looking at this feeder because they want to keep squirrels off their seed. In my case I bought this feeder because I liked how it looked in my yard, and I like that birds can only eat from one side of it (which makes it easier for me to see the birds). Quality is very good, feeder is easy to use and clean and the birds like it. To see birds using this feeder check out youtube.com/@BirdJumble

Disappointed

Purchased this feeder last summer and had no luck attracting any birds to it and I had to throw away the bird seed. This summer I put black sunflower seeds in it and have only attracted squirrels. They have figured out how to get the roof off it. Thought maybe it was my error they got it off the first time, nope they had it off again within an hour. I’d return it if I could.

Keep in mind squirrels can JUMP! Ideal placement would be at least 12 feet away from any type of launch pad (tree, fence…) and at least 4 feet off the ground. Another easy tip is to add some cayenne pepper to the seed – squirrels hate it, but it doesn’t bother the birds at all.

Great for feeding squirrels not so great for birds.

Only took 5 days for my squirrels to rip.through the plastic front of this feeder and literally go inside to eat sunflower seeds all day! Horrible design flaw to have flimsy plastic covering openings. So now, the feeder is basically useless for feeding birds! Only feeding squirrels.

Oh no, we are so sorry to hear about this! Try and hang your feeder at least twelve feet from any tree trunk or limb and at least four feet up from the ground. This will prevent squirrels from either jumping from the tree or up from the ground onto the feeder. The feeder is covered under a 30-day return policy and a 1-year replacement policy. To proceed, please give us a call at 1-855-737-5973. We're happy to help!   Sincerely, Rachel

I bought this feed a year ago and mounted it on a tall pole. The squirrels went up the pole and pulled the lever down when they reached the feeder, foiling their attempt to feed every time. The eventually gave up and leave it alone now. It works! Has held up well to the weather, too.

Cute but need different pole

Cute feeder (this is my second) however I found that the supporting pole was flimsy and rusted within a few weeks. I replaced it with another pole and it worked much better.

Worthwhile Investment that lasted 10+ years.

My second one arrived today via USPS. My initial one had seen better days. The squirrels had eaten the plastic, so I replaced with a thin piece of concrete board and painted black. Several squirrels continued to eat through the closure hidden by the bar, so I reinforced that area. Well, finally they began eating through the rusted bottom. We've been relatively pleased with this feeder. When the squirrel population gets ridiculous, I simply thin the heard.

Not squirrel resistant bird feeder
1
Mar 8, 2021
I recently purchased this squirrel resistant bird feeder at Runnings. The bird feeder is supposed to be squirrel resistant however on multiple occasions we have watched squirrels turn the top latch and then knock the cover off. The squirrels then enter the feeder and eat the bird seed with no problem. In addition, the squirrels have chewed and damaged the plexiglass window on the feeder. We are very disappointed in the feeder

Hello, this is certainly an attractive feeder and was well received as a gift. But I have not seen a recommended pole for this feeder. Also is there a pole available for a circular base designed for patios?

Q&A

What is the spec on the setting on the left hand side - what setting is for what type of bird? In your pictures - most of them your not using the setting?
Question by: Jerry Clare on May 3, 2023, 12:20 PM
To increase tension, lower the adjustment pin. To decrease tension, raise the pin to a higher slot position.
