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.

Birds That Use This Feeder
Type Of Feed
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.
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!
I was excited to receive my Jagunda bird feeder. It is attractive and holds a lot of seeds. I am hoping to get a nice population of birds this winter. Those are the pleased comments. For the price of the item I think that you could afford to send a better printed copy of assembly instructions. The print on my instructions was faint to missing entirely. I had to figure out how to assemble pretty much by guess and by gosh. Also checked Google and :YouTube for instructions, but found none. Buy some ink or a new printer please. As to the item itself, once together it looked nice, but my concern is that the pole is open at the top and will allow rain and snow to get inside the pole. Because there is no drainage at the bottom of the pole I am concerned that over time it will be damaged from accumulation of ice, snow and rain. Am I missing a part that should close the top? I placed the bird feeder 8 feet from the nearest tree. It took a week for the squirrel to figure out it could jump that far and land on top and then shimmy over the edge. I have moved the bird feeder to a spot that is tree free and eight feet from any structure. We will see if the squirrel decides to jump off the roof of the house to get to the feeder.
Hi Kristin, Thank you for leaving a review of the Droll Yankees Jagunda Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder. We are sorry to hear that the instructions that came with your feeder were not legible. Here are the instructions, which can be found on the website here: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0263/1198/3157/files/JG-A_DrollYankees-Instructions2015.pdf?v=1587411296. We will email this to you as well, in case you are not able to access the website. Yes, your feeder should have come with a Black Collet Knob that closes the top of the pole, and an ADPT pole adapter to be able to attach a feeder to the top of the pole. If you are missing that part, please call our Customer Service Team and they would be happy to send you whatever parts you did not receive in the package. It sounds like you are doing all the right things to protect your feeder from squirrels, which are extremely intelligent and relentless. Feeder placement is your best defense and it sounds like you should be better off now that you moved the feeder to a better spot! 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, Monday – Friday, 7am – 4:30pm EST. Thank you and happy birding!
We used 2 of these for years. They worked very well to keep squirrels out, but a bear finally discovered them and demolished them!
