Perky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone® III Wild Bird Feeder

Perky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone® III Wild Bird Feeder

Turn your yard into a bird feeding oasis with this Perky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone III Wild Bird Feeder. It attracts 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.

Sorry, Squirrels!

A charming addition to any outdoor space, this beautiful feeder features three durable plastic seed chambers, attractive metal caging with a powder-coated rustic brown finish, and ornamental leaves that are more than just decorative.

This feeder's innovative weight-activated exterior cage wraps protectively around the seed compartments. When a squirrel climbs onto the cage, the spring-loaded exterior cage drops down, throwing the squirrel off balance and lowering the ornamental leaves on the cage down into position where they effectively act as a barrier, covering the seed ports and preventing squirrels from pillaging the seed supply. Easy-to-access settings allow for adjusting the cage's spring tension as necessary.

This feeder's nine seed ports nicely dispense bird seed, while its bird-preferred, U-shaped metal perches allow birds to comfortably perch and feed. The bird's weight won't lower the cage, but when a squirrel climbs on, down it goes.

Easy to Fill and Use

This innovative Squirrel-Be-Gone III 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 black oil sunflower seed, peanuts, or mixed seed. Use the same seed in all three chambers or add a different kind to each chamber to attract an even greater variety of birds. After filling the bird feeder, simply hang it in the yard, and watch as your feathered friends swoop in to celebrate.

Suggested Placement

This wild bird feeder comes with a wire loop 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

The clear, plastic seed compartments make it easy to monitor seed levels at a glance. 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.

Wild Birds love:

  • 9 seed-dispensing ports
  • Comfortable U-shaped perches
  • Fresh seed continuously

You'll love:

  • Weight-activated squirrel technology
  • Powder-coated rustic brown finish
  • No assembly required
  • Pure enjoyment and relaxation watching wild birds feeding

Birds and squirrels like it. I can't say the same. By Brooke

Birds like it very much. Squirrels love it! I don't like it for the following reasons. The divided cylinder is difficult to fill and the compartments are emptied at different rates. Also the tube seems difficult to clean. The lid is almost impossible to screw on, and the hook at the top flops over,making the feeder very difficult to hang. Even if it were indeed squirrel -proof, I would not recommend this feeder.

Beautiful to look at, terribly flawed design By Betsy

Love the look of this bird feeder, but the plastic portals are a terrible design. They become brittle and break after about a year (in NC sun) and are chewed easily by the squirrels. Portals should be metal, as suggested by others, and at least available for customers to order replacement parts so we don't have to discard the entire feeder. Plastic seed tubes should also be available for replacement. Emailed Woodstream Corporation and called Perky-Pet consumer line to no avail -- they will pass comments along to "Product Manager." I see negative reviews everywhere, but no indication that the Product Manager is doing anything to address the issues. We have replaced this bird feeder three times because of the plastic parts. How difficult is it to reinstate access to order these parts? Address design flaws while keeping customers!

Look for your receipt now! By Bunny

I think this feeder actually encourages the squirrels! I had the same experience as everyone else. The squirrel proof feature did NOT WORK! The squirrels quickly figured out how to balance their weight on the tree so that they could access seeds. I’m going for the 30 day refund! The bigger birds weren’t too fond of it either, the grosbeaks didn’t seem to be able to use it, maybe the perch was too short.

Waste of MONEY!!!!!!! NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!!!! By Dick

I had the feeder two days and the squirrels figured out how to take the bird seeds out of the feeder. I can send you the video of the squirrels eating the seeds.

Response From Perky-Pet®
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Dick,

We are very sorry for this experience! Squirrels are very persistent and will go to great lengths for a taste of that tantalizing bird seed. To force them to interact with the squirrel resistant features of this feeder, we recommend keeping the feeder at least 12 feet away from any launching point (such as a deck, tree, large bush..etc).

Your satisfaction with your purchase is important to us! We hope this information was helpful. This feeder is covered by a 30 day return policy and a one year warranty with a copy of the purchase receipt. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for further assistance. We are happy to help!

Too heavy. Broke in wind. By Unhappy in SF

It fell down in the wind and broke. There was no instruction on what kind of hanger was needed to handle the weight. Can I get any refund or credit?

Not very squirrel proof, but good customer service By Larry

Holds a lot of seed, however, it's not very squirrel proof. At the end of one week, a squirrel already chewed a large hole in one of the openings. Customer service is excellent since they offered a replacement without me asking. The feeder is less than 6 months old and was only in use for one week before the incident occured. If they reinforced the holes with metal, instead of a thicker plastic, the feeder would be flawless.

Response From Perky-Pet®
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Larry,

Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback! The suggestions are appreciated and have been shared with our Product Managers.

We are glad we were able to rectify this experience! To help force the squirrels to come in contact with the squirrel resistant features of the feeder, we recommend hanging the feeder at least 12 feet away from any launching spots (such as a tree or deck) and four feet off the ground. This will prevent them from jumping right onto the feeder itself.

Squirrel-Be-Gone "NOT" By Golfbuddy45

Squirrel-Be-Gone III feeder is pretty but not squirrel resistant at all... Maybe we have big squirrels here in North Carolina but they get on the feeder and the UP-DOWN cage failed to stop at the bracket (that is way too short in my opinion) so that the cage went down too far and got stuck way down the feed tubes. The squirrels then ate the plastic around the feed ports so now the feed just pours out freely on to the ground. The birds and squirrels have been feasting for sure. . . . Some very minor tweaks in the design could fix these issues . . (I am a retired engineer!)

No oarts By Gene Parker

Squirrel resistant feeders are great, they work. But, before you buy keep this in mind, the springs rust and quit functioning or just break after about 2 years and the plastic tubes as in the model 337 get brittle and can easily break after two years. They used to sell parts but they decided they didn't sell enough to warrant doing that so they made a business decision to stop. They only warranty them for one year. So spend your $40 or more for a feeder byt ve ready to trash them when any part fails, and they will!! Repeat business and customer satisfaction are not a priority!!

Q&A
Q.I have two of these feeders and enjoy them very much, as do the many birds that feed daily. I am in southern Florida and so the feeders endure the hot sun daily. A few of the plastic inserts inside the feeding ports have broken down due to the heat, can I order replacements?
A.

We apologize as replacement parts are not available. However, this feeder is covered by a one year warranty with a copy of the purchase receipt. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for further assistance. We are happy to help!

Q.I have a Squirrel Be Gone 3 that I haven't used in a while. I took it out but now cannot figure out how to get the lid off and fill it. I also need to clean it first, can you provide detailed instructions on how to open it for filling and cleaning? Thank you
A.

To fill, simply twist the top cap off of the feeder and lift the lid to open. When cleaning the feeder, we recommend removing the lid and soaking the feeder with a mild soap and water solution.

Q.We have two Perky Pet Squirrel-B-Gone III Bird Feeder, 8 lb. Capacity. I thought I had seen metal replacement cups for this feeder, but I do not see them listed on the site. Our squirrels like the plastic cups, it appears, as they bite and chew them. GaryO

We apologize as we do not have interchangeable ports for this feeder. However, we appreciate the feedback and have shared the information with our Product Managers.
