good idea but doesn't work By NT

Have had my 2 feeders up for a little over a week. It rained and I had to empty the feeders and dig out the wet seed. The sun came out and the squirrels arrived. The birds all left. I would rather have the squirrels and the birds than no birds at all.

Response From Perky-Pet®
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Birds are creatures of habit and may need time to adjust to a new feeder. We recommend placing a water source nearby to attract them. To deter squirrels, we recommend adding a small amount of cayenne pepper to the seed as they do not like spicy food. Also, keeping the feeder at least 12 feet away from any launching point and four feet off the ground will help force the squirrels to come in contact with the weight activated perch.

Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) with any questions or for additional assistance.

Didn't last 1 year! By Patricia

Squirrels chewed the lip of plastic that holds the window to the front of the feeder, then made their own front door to all the seeds they could eat! Too much money to last only one season!

Response From Perky-Pet®
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

To force the squirrels to interact with the weight-activated system, we recommend placing the feeder at least 12 feet away from any type of launch pad (tree, fence..etc) and at least four feet off the ground.

Squirrels also dislike cayenne pepper and safflower seed. The pepper does not bother the birds at all and the safflower seed is nutritious for birds! We recommend adding a little of each to the seed to deter squirrels.

This feeder is covered by a 30 day return policy and a one year warranty with a copy of the purchase receipt. For further assistance, please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973). We are happy to help!

Sturdy and Does The Job! By Coasternut

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!

Problem with roof By Patti

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

Hello Patti,

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.

Our feeders are covered by a 30-day satisfaction guarantee and a one-year replacement warranty. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for additional assistance.

Great product;s and better customer service By Chuck

Great product and even better customer service. I just got off the phone with a lovely customer service rep explaining the top of my feed has a weather vane that holds the roof of the feeder on. I told her it broke and she told me they don't have replacement parts. She asked me to hold for a minute. When she came back to the phone she said that they are going to replace the whole feeder. I was shocked, but it just goes to see that there are company's and their people that work for them that REALLY care about their customers.

Is NOT a squirrel-be-gone feeder By Alice

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.

spring adjustment By Phil

How do I know which adjustment to use on the spring setting. Nothing tells me which setting to use.

Response From Perky-Pet®
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Depending on the species and age of squirrels in your area, we recommend experimenting with different settings. To increase tension, lower the adjustment pin. To decrease tension, raise the pin to a higher slot position.

Bad product By Buck

I’ve had two of these feeders...the first one had a mfg defect in that the paint on one side of the feeder was bad and that side turned a lighter colour and rusted. I called in and they provided a replacement. I was pulling the feeder off the pipe to refill a month ago, and the pipe sleeve that is welded to the base of the interior of the feeder broke apart due to what can only be a poor weld....It should have been welded in at least 4-points circumferentially. The life’s are a bear to align and secure and my squirrels have figured out how to turn the cardinal that secures the roof to the house. There appears to be no quality control and don’t expect your feeder for you pretty sizeable investment to last more than 2 years without exhibiting some type of problem.....I called in to report this last issue and they only replace once within a year....The customer service people are very professional, but they have lost my business....I worked for a major Telecom mfg for years and understand how poor mfg process controls can ruin a product and a reputation....They’ve lost my business....Don’t buy the Squirrel Away feeder...very poorly made!!!!!

Cute but not squirrel proof By Candy

Super cute but absolutely not squirrel proof :-( The squirrels have figured out that they can grab onto the roof, and hang upside down, thereby avoiding touching the bar. I have more squirrels feasting out of this feeder than birds

Response From Perky-Pet®
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

We apologize for this experience. To help prevent this from occurring, we recommend hanging the feeder in a different location. The recommended placement is at least ten feet away from launching spots (such as trees or decks) and at least five feet above the ground.

Q&A
Q.We hung up the squirrel begone red barn feeder but within a week our smart squirrels figured out how to sit on edge and eat food and then later we found the lid/roof on the ground and the squirrels were having a party and ate all the food. Is there a way we can secure the "roof" to prevent them from turning the weathervane and knocking the roof off? we thought about wiring it but then it would be harder to remove to fill.
A.

We apologize as we do not recommend modifying the feeder. However, placement is very important when keeping squirrels away from the feeder. We recommend hanging it 12 feet away from any squirrel launching point (such as a tree, fence, deck..etc) and four feet off the ground.

Q.How do I open to add seed
A.

Depending on which feeder you are filling, either the chimney or the weather vane will turn allowing you to lift the lid off of the feeder.

Q.I have the perky let red squirrel resistant bird feeder. The plastic glass in the window got busted. Do you have the plastic to replace and how much
A.

We apologize as replacement parts are not available for this feeder. However, the feeder is covered by a 30 day return policy and a one year warranty with a copy of the purchase receipt.

FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: What are the most popular bird seeds to use?

A: Black Oil Sunflower Seed is the most popular bird seed. It is much smaller than the traditional sunflower seed and best for those birds with smaller bills, such as the sparrow, junco and goldfinch. This seed is accepted by the greatest variety of birds.

Mixed Seed is also popular. It is best to buy the mixes that contain white proso millet, a tiny cream colored seed with a shiny shell. Mixes containing finely cracked corn and black oil sunflower are also preferred by a large number of birds.

Thistle Seed is imported from Africa and Asia. Thistle won't germinate, however, it has a tendency to become moldy due to lack of air circulation. If you notice mold on the seed, it must be removed from the feeder and the feeder must be cleaned thoroughly.

Q: How do I clean my bird feeders?

A: Seed feeders can be dish washed or hand washed. Before filling your feeders with fresh seed, it is recommended that the following precautions are taken:

Dish washed

  1. Remove all old seed.
  2. Place the feeder on top rack of the dish washer.
  3. Allow the feeder to dry completely before refilling.

Hand washed

  1. Remove all old seed.
  2. Soak feeder in water.
  3. Gently cleanse feeder and allow to air dry.

After the feeder is clean and dry follow these steps

  1. Rake and remove accumulated hulls and droppings from underneath the feeders.
  2. Spread mulch (bark or wood) under the feeder, replace mulch when soiled.
  3. Thoroughly wash hands after handling and cleaning feeders.

Q: What is the importance of providing water for wild birds?

A: Wild birds need fresh, clean water just as much as they need seed. Birds stay healthy by using water not just for drinking, but also for bathing, cleaning their feathers and to remove parasites. Waterers are better options than bird baths because they provide birds with fresh, clean water that prevents dirt and debris from contaminating it. In hotter climates or seasons, providing water for birds makes it easy for them to have access to a water source and retain their energy. By adding a water source, you also can attract a larger variety of birds to your yard. You may even attract more colorful birds that don't eat seed, but are in need of water!
