Review RateDidn't hold up to those clever squirrels.
It seemed like a great idea, and worked for awhile. But then those squirrels started gnawing away at the plastic by the openings, and voila! No longer squirrel-proof. I think if the tube were made out of glass, it would be a good design.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateDon't waste your money
Bought two of this model. First day, a squirrel eating from one feeder even though springs on second from top holes. Adjusted springs till only hooked on the guide above adjustment holes. Second day found the other feeder laying on ground with just the lid hanging from the hook, lid spring missing and one side springs unhooked at top. Also bought the Perky-Pet Squirrel-Be-Gone 3-tube feeder, which is still in the box, and will be returned.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateDisappointed in this feeder.
I am very disappointed with this feeder. When I wrote before I was told to put red pepper in with the seeds but it doesn't make a bit of difference. The squirrels don't even notice the difference with pepper or without. I have given up.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback! We are sorry to hear the desired results were not seen. Where is the feeder located? Placement is very important when deterring squirrels. We recommend keeping it at least 12 feet away from launching points (trees, deck, fence..etc) and four feet off the ground. This placement will prevent the squirrels from climbing/jumping directly on to the feeder and force them to interact with the weight activated perches.

Review RateWant my money back
I bought this feeder to get rid of the squirrels bogarting food. No birds have shown since installed. It’s been a month. Adjusted springs and it still doesnt matter.

Review RateBird Be Gone
Birds hate this feeder. Purchased two from Home Depot and birds go to my other Perky Pet feeders but not these. Perch may be too small, not sure. Waste of money, can't return them, threw out the packaging and their used. You make such good feeders, why do you still sell these, not a good product.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We are very sorry to hear of this experience! Birds are creatures of habit and will take time to adjust to a new feeder in their environment. We recommend removing established feeders to help aid the transition. Placing a shiny pie plate filled with bird seed under the feeder will also encourage the birds to utilize the new food source.

Review RateGood feeder and great customer service
I have two Squirrel-be-gone feeders that have worked well for two years for one and the most of a year for the other. One squirrel though figured out that he could gnaw a corner at the bottom and get in. Perky Pet was very helpful and promptly replaced the unit under their warranty policy. Their customer service was very friendly and responded promptly.
Review RateSquirrel B Gone Feeder doesn't work.
I have two of your model Model #: 336 Squirrel B-Gone feeders. If a manufacturer is going to market a bird feeder SKU w/marketing that says it's specifically to thwart Squirrels - one would think the item would be manufactured out of a material that squirrels can not chew through. Both of my bird feeders Model # 336 have huge holes in them from squirrels eating away the plastic PLUS - the metal on the top of both feeders has corroded off and one feeder is little over a year old and the other is approx a year old. I have pictures if you would like to see them. I believe that perky pet is marketing a bat & switch operation - given you're marketing belies the actual product. A customer will buy the item assuming if it's marketed as a "squirrel proof" bird feeder - only to get it home and find out several months later that the item not only doesn't deter squirrels it doesn't handle even the mild weather we have here in Northern California. I live in an area that is temperate all the time with no strong sun nor strong rain EVER. I would like perky pet to replace these items with true SQUIRREL PROOF bird feeders - given as of now I can no longer use either of the items I purchased and am out $56 for nothing.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for providing this feedback! We are very sorry to hear of this experience. In some instances, additional measures may be needed to ensure the squirrels come in contact with the squirrel-resistant features of this feeder. We recommend keeping the feeders at least 12 feet away from squirrel launching points (such as a tree, fence, pole, deck..etc). and four feet off the ground. Mixing cayenne pepper with the seed also works well as squirrels do not like the spicy taste but it will not bother the birds.

Review RateModel 336 is Junk. Do not waste your money!
Squirrels totally destroyed it within 3 or 4 days. On the first day, they lifted the thin metal decorative guards covering the 6 feeding stations and then removed the small thin metal clips covering the lip of each opening. They proceeded to chew away the plastic, thus enlarging the openings.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback! We are very sorry for this experience.
When deterring squirrels, placement is key. Squirrels can jump, so the feeder should be kept at least 12 feet away from any launching point and four feet off the ground. We also recommend mixing a small amount of cayenne pepper in with the seed. Squirrels cannot stand it but it does not bother the birds at all.

Review RateDoesn't work
I purchased this feeder hoping to keep the little monsters away from the food, but they stretch out, hind legs on the top and front legs on the bottom and eat freely. Bird don't seem to like to feed on it. Will be returning it.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
