Additional Information

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.

    Parts not available but..

    Great!! Love to see the Jay's and blackbirds get stymied.! I'm on my 3rd one of these.a bear destroyed one and we have one at our home and one at our camp. I put a small 11mm socket on one of the perches and now 4 chickadees can still eat at once but one blue Jay will shut er down ! My only complaint is hanging cable rusted through on the first one. veg. oil on the cables stopped it on next two.but as someone said parts arent offered..likely cause they are assembled in China and resold here..other then that .5 ***** from me!! Bought ours up here in canada at crappytire.

    TK is right-RECONSIDER your purchase

    What good is a feeder if the wire that holds it is ****? I found my feeder on the ground and I have had it less than 6 months. When I called customer service, Jennifer was quick to say, "Yeah, we don't don't have replacement parts." I saw TK's review and had a little hope when I read the response from the company, thinking that they really do believe in their product. But Jennifer was very clear with me--repeating--we do not have replacement parts, there is nothing we can do. So if you decide to buy this product, the squirrels will be waiting for this one to fall.

    Finally!!! A feeder that works that I will call squirrel proof.

    I have an "impossible" spot, with a great view from the window, that is 8 feet from a large evergreen and 8 feet from a large maple and 4 feet from a smaller evergreen where I have a double hook pole about 6 feet tall. I used to get robbed by squirrels with every other feeder including other squirrel resistant feeders. I have tried many and went through bird seed in no time, or they destroyed the feeder to get the food. I put up Squirrel-X 1 about 6 months ago. When it first went up the squirrels were all over it from every angle they could reach it but because of the unique design the squirrelx they were denied. They tried, and tried, and tried - it was very entertaining watching them stretching from the pole, cone, and feeder; hang upside down by one foot, pushing, pulling, you name it! It's been 6 months and they still jump to it everyday, spend a few seconds to see if anything has changed, and scramble down and head elsewhere. I also like that I can put up to three different seed varieties in the sections and attract a wide variety of birds. Love it!
