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
I actually ordered the Yankee Flipper squirrel proof feeder but received the Yankee Tipper squirrel proof feeder. I didn’t realize I got the wrong feeder and used it. It works great! I was looking forward to seeing the squirrels spinning, but the tipper works and also keeps the large birds away too.

It was expensive but is well made and really works. Is worth it if it lasts. I have bought cheaper feeders in the past, that didn’t last long. I would rather spend the money on a well constructed feeder than continually replacing broken ones. It keeps out large birds in addition to the squirrels.

Please be aware, a company called vastarrysk.com is advertising this feeder at a much cheaper price. DO NOT PURCHASE FROM VASTARRYSK.COM.
