Perky-Pet® AntGuard®

Keep pesky ants away from your hanging bird feeders! This AntGuard® helps ensure the hummingbirds (and not the ants) will enjoy the nectar.

The Perky-Pet® AntGuard® effectively repels ants from feeders and easily mounts in-line with hanging bird feeders.

AntGuard® was reviewed & accepted for use on hummingbird feeders by the US EPA. Permethrin is used in many common household products, including dog flea collars and children’s shampoo, and impregnated fabric is now even used in US Military combat uniforms to repel mosquitos. Like the naturally derived pyrethrin, which originates from chrysanthemums and was the inspiration for this substance, it should be kept away from ponds, streams or other bodies of water due to risk to aquatic organisms. is the top destination to find quality Wild Bird Feeders and Accessories. Perky-Pet®, K-Feeders and NO/NO® wild bird products are trusted brands to bird lovers everywhere. Interact with nature, relax and build memories that last a lifetime by conveniently ordering from Happy Bird Feeding!

Really works By Sioux
I have had these for years but since we moved to Arizona the heat has had affects on the plastic so I am making sure that if another one breaks, I'll have plenty to replace it with.

Amazed at how perfectly these ant guards work By Robert
I have used these ant guards through two seasons now ... not a single ant has been able to impenetrate them. I tried just about everything before ... even putting ant poison in the moat areas ... but during rains would wash out and then dry out and ants would invade. Then the flower and bee guards would turn black from the ants and washing them became tedious. Was skeptical as to if these would work ... bought one first and in using, it became the only ant free bird feeder of 8 I hung. Bought 7 more ... all feeders ant free from then on. ... Will be buying for my parents who also have many feeders as a gift in the near future.

Parts are always what I need!! By Gail in West Texas
I own two Oriole feeders (that the hummingbirds use also) that need to be re-vamped on a regular basis. It's wonderful that Perky Pet has the parts for these feeders that I can rely on. This time the bees were getting into the feeders and Perky Pet had the parts with bee guards that I needed. Thank YOU!!!

Does exactly what it\'s supposed to. By Judy Poody
I bought an ant guard a few years ago. It lasted a couple of seasons. It worked great. Kept the ants away from the hummingbird feeders. No odors, no mess, no danger to the Humminbirds.

Great Item By kayltee57
My original order was months ago and they worked so well that when I wanted to hang more feeders I realized within hours I couldn't do it without more ant guards. So I ordered more and now can hang the additional feeders I want. Thank you!

Q.Does this product also good on earwigs. They are what I have a problem with in the northwest.

This product is designed to repel ants, it is not recommended for earwigs.

Q.I have basically the same question as above. Does the permethrin ever lose its effectiveness? If so, do you sell replacement inserts for it?

Replacement parts are not available for the Ant Guard. We recommend replacing the product each season.

Q.I cannot determine how long the antguard is expected to last. I assumed one season as it would be stored for perhaps six months. In the reviews I read, others are still working longer. Just wing it as long as it is effective, or replace it annually?

We recommend replacing the ant guard each season.
