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.

    Lasted just hours

    Didn’t take long for squirrels to hop on this upside down. Since they are small ones their weight did not pull the openings closed so the squirrels are having a grand time.

    Hi Liz, Thank you for your review of the Squirrel-X™ X4 Squirrel-Proof Bird Feeder with Push-Button Top, 1.5 lb. capacity. We are sorry to hear you are dealing with squirrels. Unfortunately, they are pests and if they live in your yard, then they will always be a threat to your feeder. Our squirrel x feeders are rated to be squirrel proof based on the design features, materials used and proper placement. They are also designed for the common grey squirrel, and not the smaller red squirrel species. We think if you properly place the feeder you will have better success! We suggest placing 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. We hope this information helps get you back to feeding the birds and not the squirrels. 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!

    Squirrel X X4 Bird Feeder

    Although I agree from reading the other reviews, I have hug it the wrong way, the squirrels love this feeder! They love it so much they figured out how to pull the “seed guard” plastic piece right off one of the feeder holes. They really didn’t like me putting it back on so the smart little buggers threw/carried it off to the neighbours yard. This has rendered the feeded useless unless I want to use duct tape. Hopefully I can buy the little piece but I can’t see it on line. Unless used exactly as directed you will have Squirrels which I really don’t mind. Squirrels are hungry too!

    Not even Squirrell-resistant

    Squirrels were feeding happily from this within minutes of putting it up. The outer “cage” that’s supposed to come down and cover the feeding holes simply doesn’t. It barely budges from the weight of the squirrell. At first I thought maybe the spring was jammed somehow but it’s not. It simply requires more force to pull the “cage” down than is generated by the weight of an average American red Squirrell (which is even smaller than the better-known grey squirrell). I think it might be at least somewhat squirrell-resistant feeder if the spring resistance were adjusted or adjustable. However there are additional reasons why I wouldn’t buy this feeder again: it doesn’t hold nearly as much seed as it looks like it would, and the perches are too short for my larger bird friends (eg cardinals) to perch on and eat. Reading through Squirrell X’s response to all the other negative comments is an exercise in frustration as well. Rather than respond to the legitimate complaints about the feeders performance, they just blame the consumer. If you have to locate a feeder is such a hard to reach spot that a squirrel can’t possibly reach it (which means the consumer also can’t reach it to refill), then you could just use a regular feeder...there’d be no need to pay extra for a squirrel “proof” feeder!

    Hi MM i., Thank you for your review of the Squirrel-X X4 Squirrel-Proof Bird Feeder with Push Button Top. We are sorry to hear that you were dealing with squirrels accessing your feeder within minutes of hanging it up. From seeing the picture you attached, this is because you hung the feeder from your house. This is not what we consider to be proper placement of your feeder. What makes a squirrel-proof feeder squirrel proof are three things: Proper Placement, Design and Materials Used. Since the squirrels have extremely easy access to this feeder, due to improper placement, then yes the squirrels will find a way to access the seed, as they are extremely intelligent and very persistent. The cage will descend as designed to, when the weight of an average grey squirrel is applied to it. So, if your squirrels are red squirrels, which are much smaller and lighter, they will be too lightweight to trigger the weight-activation on this product and others like it. Proper placement is even more important, for your situation. We do provide the capacity of the feeder on our website, so we are sorry you thought it would hold more. If you purchased this feeder on a different website and the capacity was listed incorrectly, please let us know and we will work on correcting that. You should be able to properly place your feeder, and still have access to it. 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. We hope this information helps you! We will be sharing this information with our Product Development and Design Team as well as our Engineering Team, to see if we can make changes to the tension of the spring to help with smaller squirrel species. 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.

    Expensive, and squirrels love it!

    Same experience as the other reviews -- squirrels broke it open within hours. I hung it 8 feet in the air; the squirrels crawled out on the wire and quickly emptied it out. Hoped for a refund from the store where I bought it, but no. Maybe from the manufacturer? It's certainly not "squirrel-proof." It's not even squirrel resistant.

    Hi Bob, Thank you for your review of the Squirrel-X X4 Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder with Push-Button Top. We are sorry to hear that squirrels accessed your feeder. When you hung the feeder 8 ft in the air, did you hang it from a tree or from your house? 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 will also help to ensure squirrel-proofing success. Our squirrel proof feeders have specific design features and use higher quality materials. Those two aspects in conjunction with proper placement will provide great squirrel-proof protection. We unfortunately cannot offer you a refund, since you purchased the feeder from a retailer, and they handled your transaction. If your feeder was damaged, we would be happy to send you a new one, one time, free of charge. Please give our Customer Service Team a call at 1-800-352-9164 and they would be happy to assist you!

    Squirrel x feeder

    First day the squirrel hung from the wire and quickly he pulled the metal off that surrounds the seed hole. Not squirrel resistant. I removed the feeder and hung it in a new spot and he did it again! Thinking maybe the metal hole guards need to be attached to each other across the feeder so they can’t be pulled off.

    Hi S.D., Thank you for your review of the Squirrel-X X4 Squirrel-Proof Bird Feeder with Push-Button Top. We are sorry that you’re having no success at all deterring squirrels from your feeder. Squirrels are so clever and relentless and it seems sometimes that they’re smarter than most other animals. One of the biggest challenges to feeding wild birds—our own challenge too—is deterring squirrels. We work on a daily basis to create quality products and cultivate good advice that will help us all win this fight. We can completely sympathize with your squirrel frustration. Our goal is to help restore your faith in our products by offering you some squirrel-proof advice. 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.

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 will also help to ensure squirrel-proofing success. If you make sure to properly place any of our squirrel-proof feeders, I am confident that you will start having success in deterring the squirrels. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please call our Customer Service Department at 1-800-352-9164 and any one of our Customer Service Reps will be happy to assist you. We hope this helps you get back to feeding birds and thwarting squirrels!
