If a squirrel tries to feed on any of the 4 spring-loaded perches, the X1’s integrated design shuts every port simultaneously, stopping racketeering rodents right in their tracks. From cardinals and grosbeaks to finches and more, songbirds love the X1’s long, broad perches. The wide top opening makes refilling a breeze. The X1’s reinforced metal tabs and metal-covered hanging wire are built to resist squirrel chewing. Its large, 4.2 lb seed capacity lasts longer between refillings, and the built-in seed diverter keeps seeds flowing to hungry birds. With a satin nickel finish and a rugged metal frame, the Squirrel-X1 combines strength & style to bring you the ultimate in squirrel-resistant bird feeding and your best defense against squirrels!
Placement to deter squirrels: The key to keeping a bird feeder successfully squirrel-proofed is the placement. Place your bird feeder 4 feet from the ground and 8 feet from anything a squirrel can jump from. When hanging from a pole by a hook, it is recommended that the hook have at least a 16” distance from the pole. Placing a baffle on the pole or having a caged feeder will also help to ensure squirrel-proof success.
Cleaning: Dirty bird feeders spread disease. We recommend cleaning your feeders weekly, or monthly at a minimum. Do not put your feeder in the dishwasher as the high temperatures can permanently damage the feeder parts. Clean your feeders outdoors with a large bucket, and always wear gloves when cleaning. Soak your feeder in a 9:1 solution of water and bleach for 15 minutes. Then use a bird feeder brush to scrub the feeder with dish soap and water. Refill when completely dry.
