Feed birds (not squirrels!) with the revolutionary Squirrel-X7 Squirrel-Resistant Bird Feeder! If a squirrel tries to feed on any of the 2 collapsible perches, the perches will bend under the weight of a squirrel, dropping the squirrel and saving seed for the birds. The extra tall tube design hinders squirrels from reaching the seed ports from the roof, while its large, 4.4 lb. seed capacity lasts longer between fillings. The washers on the top of the cap prevent squirrels from opening the feeder. Simply slide the cap up for easy, thorough cleaning! The wide opening makes for effortless refilling. With a PVC tube and powder-coated forest green finish, the Squirrel-X7 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.
