Additional Information

Placement to deter squirrels: The key to keeping a feeder successfully squirrel-proofed is the placement. Place a 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. 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.

    Cheaply made

    Feeder ports fall out causing all the seed to fall to the ground. Connection between the ports is too short and does not fully secure them. Make it a little better and charge an extra few dollars.

    Doesn’t work

    This didn’t work. The squirrels were able to empty it in one evening.

    2 weeks & no squirrels

    So far, the squirrels have been unable to access this feeder. I note some of these feeders have two wires that come to the top. Hopefully that’s an improved feature, as ours only has one, which makes it turn if there is any wind. Took awhile for the birds to like it, but they habituated to it. I would buy again, but if you’re buying one spend the extra money & go for more feeding ports.

    Nice, simple feeder

    This feeder has met my expectations. The birds like it. The squirrels like it too. Unfortunately, we are not able to hang it where they can’t get to it. However, the tube is long enough that they can’t reach the seed while hanging from the top. They are able to lunge out from the pole and hold on to the seed hole and get some seeds. Being fully stretched out this is a difficult maneuver and they cannot sustain it for very long. This is fine with me, since they are entertaining and only get a little seed at a time, most of which falls on the ground, so the birds get it there anyway. I am happy with this feeder so far.

    Hi David, Thank you for your review of the Squirrel-X X7 Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder with Collapsible Perches. We are happy to see your overall satisfaction with the feeder and we appreciate you taking the time to provide the positive feedback. If you are unable to properly place the feeder, you can always in stall a baffle to help defend the feeder as well. You place the baffle on the pole which prevents the squirrels from climbing up and launching from it. We hope that helps! If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to our Customer Service Team at 1-800-352-9164. Thank you for flying with our flock!
