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.

The enjoyed feeder for several years before the pigeons came. Now the pigeons sit in the feeder and clean it out. Any suggestions?
Hello Cynthia, Thank you for your review on Droll Yankees® Jagunda® Squirrel-Proof Bird Feeder with Auger, 6 lb. capacity, 19 in. diameter. Unfortunately, with the size of this feeder it will attract larger birds. 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 email@example.com. Thank you for flying with our flock!
This is a well made feeder that the squirrels and chipmunks haven't been able to access, one of the primary reasons for purchasing it. The other reason was to encourage the cardinals to our yard. We currently have a Squirrel Buster, a great feeder, but the cardinals don't like to sit on the perch ring, and only eat what can be found on the ground under it. The new feeder has been up for about a month now, and the finches love it, but the cardinals don't even seem to notice that it's there. I'm hoping that will change! Also, the cap to cover the pole was not included in the package, and I noticed from another review that there should be one. Could I get one, please?
Hi Susan, Thank you for your review of the Droll Yankees Jagunda Squirrel-Proof Bird Feeder with Auger. Birds can be picky so we hope the cardinals start to use it soon for you! We are sorry that the Collet Knob was not included in the packaging. We can definitely send you one, free of charge. We will have someone from our Customer Service Team reach out to you via email, to get this order placed for you. 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. Thank you for flying with our flock!
This is a large capacity feeder which has the ability to restrict the seed flow into the tray. This is very effective in reducing seed waste. The feeder also protects seed from moisture in the feeder so no more seed clogs and nasty mold. Very happy with this feeder.
Jagunda Bird Feeder - something to think about in future construction
I was looking forward to getting my feeder. Have had several Droll Yankees products and have always been pleased. Set up this feeder in between existing feeders. Couldn't get birds to use it. I know it takes time to acclimate birds to a new feeder. What i found was that the landing surface was just too slick for them. I finally put duct tape all over the top and it seemed to help. Now the birds will come in and feed. I saw another review that mentioned this issue (but not before I purchased). Other than that, I am still pleased with the feeder. But makes you wonder if it was 'field tested' ? Definitely should have a different edge... the little guys would try to land and just kind of slide off.
Hi Debra, Thank you for your review of the Droll Yankees Jagunda Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder. We are sorry to hear that the surface the birds land on proved to be too slick for your birds. We are happy to see, however, that you were able to come up with a DIY solution! We do field test our products and this particular feeder has been part of our product line for some time now. We will make sure our product development and design team is made aware, so they can take it into consideration when planning possible future improvements. 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. Thank you for flying with our flock!
