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.

    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!

    Nothing is squirrel proof

    We've got one of these, and it took.. maybe 4 days for the squirrels to figure it out. Now they suck that thing dry. Design flaw, the bottom holes don't completely close. And they like to bend metal around the openings, so it jams open. Other problem is that red squirrels don't weigh as much as grays, so it's even easier for them.

    Hi Jean, Thank you for your review on Squirrel-X™ X1 Squirrel-Resistant Bird Feeder with Spring-Loaded Perches, 4.2 lb. capacity. We are sorry to hear you are having issues with the squirrels. The key to successfully keeping a feeder squirrel-proof is its placement. Squirrels are agile and are able to jump up to 8ft horizontally and 4ft vertically. For this reason, we recommend that feeders be placed 8ft away from any structures that they can climb on so that they do not reach across to access the feeding holes. It can be helpful to trim back and prune any nearby bushes or branches within 12ft of a feeder. We also recommend that feeders be placed higher than 4ft off the ground, preventing the squirrels from jumping and grabbing onto the bottom. If you are using a hook or pole, we recommend that the hook have at least a 16in distance from the pole. Placing a baffle on the pole or having a caged feeder will also help to ensure squirrel-proofing success. The best squirrel deterrent is feeding them. Also, our products are made for the grey squirrels not red. If you have any other questions, comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to our Customer Service Team at 1-800-352-9164 or consumerservices@classicbrands.net. Thank you for flying with our flock!

    The 'Tree Rats' (I love 'em) are finally defeated!

    The feeder drives the squirrels crazy as they can't raid the birdy goodies anymore. I now provide the little thieves peanuts in the morning. Peanuts ARE more expensive than sunflower seeds but defeating the thievery is priceless. The feeder landing posts are large enough for most birds,

    Loved lots about this feeder, but can't clean it

    This is a great feeder in so many ways, but the bird seed in the middle/bottom compartment turned moldy and there's no way to clean it out. The directions say to remove the bottom, but the compartment inside isn't accessible. Also, the wire hanger frayed and cut my hand. Customer service was very nice, but couldn't help with this design flaw. I hope they figure out a solution, as it would be a great feeder!

    Hi Janet, Thank you for your review of the Squirrel-X X1 Squirrel-Proof Bird Feeder with Spring Loaded Perches. The bottom does come off to clean. You can find the cleaning instructions on the product page listed under Instruction Manual. Those instructions are here: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0263/1198/3157/files/11_X1_Print_Ready-UPDATED.pdf?v=1604329998. There are two screws on the bottom that you can remove to be able to remove the metal base. The feeder isn't meant to be taken completely apart for cleaning. We do, however, recommend soaking the feeder. If you have any other questions, comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to our Customer Service Team at 1-800-352-9164.
