Additional Information

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.

    IT WORKS

    For decades I have seen every claim that products are squirrel proof. None have been. Finally, one that lives up to the claim. It hangs on a garden pole, and squirrel can get up the pole or jump from a tree or deck. It's been a week and so far two very frustrated squirrels and many happy birds. A side benefit is that the birds love the perches and don't fight over space. And my sunflower seed supply lasts much longer

    It really works.

    Bought this feeder about 12 years ago at an estate sale. It was several years old by then. It really is squirrel proof. They have managed to chew up the bottom a bit and have left teeth marks on the top, but have never gotten into it. I just discovered it isn't chipmunk proof. Watched a chipmunk climb up the Shepard's hook jump onto the perch and fill up his cheeks with sunflower seeds. Then slide back down the pole. Wish I had gotten a picture, maybe next time because I'm sure there will be a next time.
