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

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

A classic among squirrel resistant feeders, this one has ports that close under a squirrel’s weight, preventing the squirrel from raiding the seed supply.

The Perky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone® Wild Bird Feeder features 6 feeding ports, U-shaped perches and a 2 lb seed capacity. Feeding ports have sturdy metal perches allowing birds to feed comfortably but, when the squirrels perch on them, their weight causes the metal casing to slip down, completely blocking the feeding ports and access to the seed. The interior seed tower is surrounded by rustic metalwork.

 

The six perch/feeding station set-up, coupled with the anti-squirrel technology makes this feeder one of the most economical and convenient squirrel resistant feeders on the market! Comes fully assembled.

Remember to clean your squirrel resistant feeders once every two weeks with mild soap and water solution.

Feeder Specifications:

  • Dimensions 6" long by 6" wide by 18.25" high
  • 2 lb seed capacity
  • Use with black oil sunflower seed, peanuts, or mixed seed

Worthless By Keb

Waste of my money. Squirrel pushed down like it is supposed to work. Then proceeded to gnaw through expised plastic, reach in and eat all the seed he could reach. Guess manufacturer must test feeder with stupid edentulous squirrels.

Squirrels eat through plastic tube By Judy

I bought one last year mid summer. Put it up again in the Spring and noticed the squirrels were emptying it. Seems they ate around the plastic openings until the metal piece fell out, then they gnawed the openings wide. I bought another one, put it on a 6 foot tall shepherd's hook. They climbed the skinny metal rod and jumped to the feeder to eat. Finally we put a baffle on the hook about 2 feet off the ground. Now that the squirrels cannot get to it, the feeder is filled with birds. They love it. Be warned, if the squirrels can get to the feeder, they will eat through the plastic to get to the food.

Filling feeder. By Sheryl

What is the trick to filling this feeder? Just bought it and had seed everywhere trying to fill it. Have tried funneling with different sizes and lengths. Seed still pours out of the feeding ports. I finally put paper towels in ports to stop seed from pouring out. This worked but what a hassle!!

Response From Perky-Pet®
Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Sheryl,

We apologize for this experience and are happy to provide assistance.

Some seed may fall out of the ports when filling a feeder.  Smaller seed will tend to do this more than larger seeds or mixtures.  Keeping the cage in the down position should limit the amount that comes out through those openings.

Feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) with any additional questions.

Love this feeder By Honey

So far, so good. Seems to frustrate the squirrels so they only stay on the feeder briefly u like my other feeders where they hang on eating for a long length of time. Hope their frustration continues as its their turn now. Will keep fingers crossed.

Squirrels found a way to get the round plastic ports off the feeders and now the seeds come out like a waterfall!! By Ashlyn's Mom

I purchased 2 of your feeders. They don't work as advertised. The seeds come out like a waterfall! Your claim that squirrels will not be able to get into your feeder may be correct but they don't really need to once they nibble their way through the round plastic rings that holds the seeds up. I found 6 ports - 3 off each of feeders - along with lbs of birdseed on the ground. And yes, the feeders are hung 8 feet high and 8 feet from any tree - so high I need to stand on an orange bucket to fill them. And also, as mentioned above, the squirrels have managed to spring the springs so some of the cylinders are closed while others are empty. I'm very frustrated. Please advise. Thank you.

Response From Perky-Pet®
Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

We appreciate the time taken to provide this feedback and apologize for the experience.  

Squirrels are indeed great jumpers, so we recommend placing feeders 5 feet above the ground and at least 10 feet from the nearest jumping off point. Adding cayenne pepper to seed will repel squirrels without affecting the birds.  Safflower seed is a food source that attracts a wide variety of birds, but squirrels tend to dislike it.

Hard to clean the bottom of feeder By Jacque

Squirrels not attempting to eat out of feeder yet. We love it! Very difficult however to clean the bottom of feeder. Does the bottom come off? I'm afraid to force the prongs.

Response From Perky-Pet®
Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

We appreciate the feedback, Jacque, and are happy to help.

The base can be removed for easy cleaning.  Press on the tube at the base on the two sides that to not have prongs.  This will allow the other two sides to pop out of the prongs.  After cleaning, the base can simply be popped back on.

Best feeder I've ever had! By Laraine

Not sure why people are having trouble, wish I could add a pic of all the birds that eat from this feeder....and NO SQUIRRELS! I have tried everything to discourage the squirrels and spent quite a bit of money on ineffective gadgets. Now I get countless House finches, Chickadees, Tufted Titmouse, Goldfinches, sparrows and occasionally (if other feeders are empty) Blue jays, Cardinals. I do live in a bi-level, so it hangs off my 2nd floor deck on a shepherds hook. I only use black oiled sunflower seeds.

Not squirrel proof. By Janet

Bought one to keep squirrels out and it's not squirrel proof. They figured out how to open the lid. Chewed the plastic. If you need a picture I will send one.

"Squuirrel's love it" By MK

I purchased this model from Home Depot...Total waste of money & time. My squirrels love it, it gives them all kinds of options to hold on. and feed...I've tried different spring configurations which don't work...If I had my receipt, I'd take it back to home depot. Back to the drawing board on this one..

Response From Perky-Pet®
Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

We apologize for this experience and appreciate the feedback.

The cage on this feeder should drop and close the feeding ports when a squirrel is hanging on it. We recommend placing feeders at least 5 feet above the ground and 10 feet from the nearest launching point to reduce access to the feeder.  Adding cayenne pepper to the seed can deter squirrels that find a way around the deterrent features.  

Please give our Consumer Relations Team a call at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) with any additional questions.
