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 RateLove this feeder! Going to add more to my collection!Love, love, love everything about this feeder! Easy to clean, easy to fill, easy to tell when refill is needed. Enjoy watching the birds!
Review Ratesquirrel-proof roof?
My issue is with the rotating metal T piece that holds the roof to the base. Twice now I have found the roof on the ground and the seed ruined by rain. I am trying a bungee cord around the unit to secure the roof. Any retrofits to solve this problem!Response From Perky-Pet®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateGet the feeder with a baffle and have no problem with squirrels.
I have had this feeder four years, and I rate the feeder excellent. It is easy to fill and easy to clean. As far as squirrels are concerned, I ordered the feeder with the universal pole (#5107-4) and the pole baffle (#341), and I totally enjoy watching squirrels tackle the system, because they get totally baffled. Squirrels entertain a person without let-up. Squirrels try every possible way to get to the feeder, inevitably turn around, light on the ground and gaze up in a woebegone manner--and slink away, defeated. After four years, the plastic is becoming cloudy, and the paint on the four bottom corners is wearing off. Thus, I have ordered the same feeder again.
Review RateWill NOT keep squirrels away.
I purchased this feeder because I liked the looks and it was supposed to be "squirrel-be-gone". Well, it is absolutely NOT squirrel-be-gone and, in addition, it is metal and will rust. The only thing this feeder has going for it is the looks.Response From Perky-Pet®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateOverall, a super feeder for birds
The all metal construction provides for longevity for this feeder and keeps the seed dry no matter what the weather. The squirrel-proof feature makes it a highly desired feeder so that "birds" instead of "squirrels" are the ones who get the seed. The longer perch area allows the larger birds, along with the smaller birds, to also access food from this feeder. It does require a sturdy pole mount, though, for set up.
Review RateNot squirrel proof & no parts
First the roof lock is no match for a squirrel. Mine was off on the ground in 10 minutes. I finally tape the top on. Next, The squirrel-proof part is a laugh, They sit on the roof & hang down by their feet & empty the feeder of 2 pounds of food without ever touching the spring perch. All the baffles in the world are not going to deter a hungry rodent from sunflower seed candy. They can easily jump 20 feet tree to tree. I would need a 30 foot ladder to hang it higher than they can hop to it. I've watch them get on a upper branch & bend it down to the feeder. Finally the piece of plexiglass that is the front windows of the feeder is not squirrel chew proof. Mine has the windows chewed out & out falls all the seed. I called Customer Service to get a replacement part & was told that no replacement parts are available for this feeder, like the plastic flower feeder ports for their hummingbird feeder model 476-3. Built in obsolescence, Must be made in China.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for providing this feedback! We are very sorry for this experience. Mixing cayenne pepper with the seed often works well to deter the squirrels as they dislike the spicy taste; the birds will not be affected by the pepper.

Review RateSturdy and Does The Job!
Perky-Pet Squirrel Be Gone is doing the job. First day I put it out, my squirrel tried and tried but no luck. He even sat on the roof, trying to figure it out. I do have a another feeder near my fence which he feeds on. He no longer attempts the Perky Pet feeder. 3 birds at a time can feed on the perch. I had no trouble putting it together or removing the roof. If only these customers would read the instructions more carefully, they could easily do it. Feeder made to last!
Review RateProblem with roof
I bought the perky pet squirrel be gone green feeder with copper roof and for the life of me cannot get the chimney to line up to keep the roof on. I just spent 45 minutes working on this and I'm ready to explode! This should not be this difficult and a friend has one and says hers works. I wonder if there is some sort of alignment problem??Response From Perky-Pet®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We are sorry to hear about this experience and are happy to help.
With the roof off, look at the direction of the locking mechanism under the chimney. Make sure it is pointing at the same angle as the slot it will slide through. Place the roof down onto the feeder (the back of the roof is flush with the back of the feeder). While pushing the roof down firmly, turn the chimney a quarter turn and the lock should be in place.

Review RateIs NOT a squirrel-be-gone feeder
This is definitely not a Squirrel-Be-Gone feeder. Watched your video that shows how squirrels cannot get to the bird seed. At the beginning of the video, it shows a squirrel sitting on the top and hanging over and eating the seed without sitting on the perch. This is exactly what happens -- trust me, I see it every day. $57 is a lot for a feeder that does not keep squirrels away. It is nice looking, however, I didn't buy it for the looks alone.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience and appreciate the time taken to provide this feedback. To help deter squirrels, we recommend installing a squirrel baffler above or below the feeder.
