The Perky-Pet Squirrel-Be-Gone Wild Bird Feeder features six feeding ports, U-shaped perches and holds 2 lb. of seed. The interior seed tower is surrounded by rustic metalwork. The feeding ports have sturdy metal perches that allow birds to feed comfortably but, when the squirrels perch on them, their weight causes the entire metal casing to slip down, completely blocking the feeding ports and their access to the seed. The six perch/feeding station set-up, coupled with the anti-squirrel technology makes this feeder one of the most economical and convenient on the market. The clear, shatter-proof plastic reservoir makes it easy to monitor seed levels. Remember to clean your feeder once every two weeks with mild soap and water solution. Comes fully assembled with seed tray. Perky-Pet is the leading supplier of Wild Bird Feeders and Accessories. Perky-Pet Wild Bird Feeder models lure the bird in pursuit of seed providing you with hours of joy as random wild birds flock to feed at your house.

Questions & Answers

Asked by Joe August 7, 2020

We have cardinals and mourning doves at our home. We bought our bird seed at PetSmart specifically for those birds. We also placed the feeders somewhat close to our fence. It's funny to watch them take turns eating. Hope this helps.

Squirrels 1, Feeder 0
Squirrels bent open the metal leaves meant to cover the openings when weighted by the squirrel. They got smarter and figured out how to hang on without activating the squirrel defense. Now I have fat squirrels and distraught birds. My last line of defense: bank on the window. When the squirrels aren't around, the birds love the feeder. Buy this and pay the squirrel tax.

Needs some small modifications to work. 1 zip-tie, 2 screws
Assembly from factory seems to be snap together, needs a few modifications if you have fat squirrels like we do. Fail 1; They managed to pop the small post holding the lid/hanging wire to the rest of the feeder, dropping the feeder to the ground. A zip-tie through the pre-drilled holes and around the lid have secured that part. Though you need to cur/replace the zip-tie for refill it now. Fail 2; Our chunky squirrels managed enough downward force on the cage to pop the bottom cap out (it is held with 4 small tabs through the plastic). Adding 2 small self tapping screws through the plastic&metal cap on opposite sides have secured this piece. When they aren't breaking the entire feeder the sliding cage does great a keeping their grubby little mitts off the seed.

Thank you for this feedback.
Not Squirrel Proof At All
The squirrels within a few days were able to climb on the feeder and cause the springs to release and crash it to the ground. After redoing the springs and hanging it back up the squirrels realized that the base of the feeder is a perch for them to stand on and will not cause the feeder to close the holes. They ate the plastic around the feeding holes and wrecked it. See photos of holes below.

Not Squirrel Proof
The birds love this feeder but so do the squirrels. Easy to fill and the birds like the perches. But advertised as squirrel proof. It is not! See my Photo Below

Squirrels are much smarter than this Be Gone Feeder
Within a day a very persistent squirrel was able to feed on here. I have adjusted the springs to no avail and will try the "slinky" method. It is a very durable feeder but somewhat of a pain to clean.

Nice but not completely squirrel proof
Easy to fill. Nice looking, but not quite squirrel proof. But it took them weeks to figure how to spread themselves out so their weight didnt close it, the rascals

Good for small birds
We’ve had this feeder for about three weeks now. We were having a lot of trouble with squirrels on our old feeder especially from their jumping off and damaging a flowering bush below. This feeder definitely deters squirrels - they’ve given up coming!!However the perches are small so the Cardinals and Blue Jays we used to get have stopped coming. However we do get tons of small beautiful birds.

Not Squirrel Proof
I’ve had one of these exact feeders in the past with no issues. However, these squirrels at my new apartment are next level. The plastic is not squirrel proof. They ate through the bottom so all the birdseed fell out! Sneaky!
