Feed birds (not squirrels!) with the revolutionary Squirrel-X8 Squirrel-Resistant Bird Feeder! If a squirrel or larger bird tries to feed on any of the 4 spring-loaded perches, the X8's integrated design shuts every port simultaneously. And if a squirrel tries to hang from the top, the X8's weight-sensitive lid shuts every port, while the elongated tube further deters racketeering rodents. The cap is nestled within the tube to keep squirrels from accessing the seed. The large viewing window lets you know when it's time to refill, and the wide top opening makes cleaning and refilling a breeze! With a 2.5 lb. seed capacity, the Squirrel-X8 keeps songbirds happy and coming back for more!

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.
