Please follow all label instructions for your specific use.Perky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone® III Feeder is rated out of 5 by 175.Rated 5 out of 5 by The Bakers from Solid and so far, good deterrent against squirrels Have only had my feeder up one week - so far so good on squirrel deterrent. Strongly advise hanging on a strong metal shepherd's hook type pole, away from things that squirrels can jump from. Also, use coconut oil or similar substance on the pole to keep the squirrels off. However, the lubricant will weaken and the critters will get on the feeder. Given the capacity, the feeder doesn't require frequent refilling - the avian critters love it.Date published: 2016-09-13Rated 5 out of 5 by Nancyhas12cats from My birds love it !! I really like this bird feeder but the squirrels have found a way to hang upside down on it and still eat the bird seed. But my birds love it !!Date published: 2016-08-27Rated 5 out of 5 by Dennis from Best bird feeder ever. Only issue with this feeder is the springs that hold the items that block the feeder holes when a squirrel gets on the feeder wear out over time. Takes a few years so it is expected. Excellent bird feederDate published: 2016-08-23Rated 1 out of 5 by Skipp from Nice concept, doesn't work It worked for about five minutes. I bought this yesterday and after the third attempt, the squirrels were on the feeder below. I tried every conceivable height, but nothing deterred the squirrels.Date published: 2016-08-19Rated 1 out of 5 by SquirrelsareNutsinMN from Squirrels broke in within a week! I tried everything prior to this Baffler. These squirrels almost gave up on my feeder, but not quite. It seems as though they called in a professional to do the job. He actually broke the heavy plastic hook in half (like you see in the photo). Not sure if it ate threw it or clawed it, but it was broken in half. I can't tell you the $$ I went through to keep squirrels out of my bird feeder. I give up and throw in the towel! I thought after seeing so many fail to get at this, I'd actually found the perfect product. Nothing, nowhere is squirrel proof apparantly. And people say animals are stupid? I wish I had had a camera on this to see how it actually broke. The only evidence was the fat and happy squirrel laying next to it on the ground so full he couldn't move.Date published: 2016-08-17Rated 4 out of 5 by outaboutred from mixed bag I bought two of these feeders, you have to stay on top of the springs as they get stuck on the metal (due to persistent squirrel attacks) The system does a great job shutting out the squirrels from the opening where the seed is available, but with the weight of the squirrels hanging on the system they were still able to eat through the plastic at the very base and create their own permanent openings. Not a bad system but needs some work. I still have one hanging out back after one full year and it is holding up wellDate published: 2016-08-09Rated 5 out of 5 by Hootie from Goodbye to squirrels We have an abundance of squirrels, when we first hung this feeder a couple tried to get to the food, but did not succeed. Now they don't even tryDate published: 2016-08-01Rated 3 out of 5 by The Mathemagician from A Similar Issue Like other reviews, I have had a problem with squirrels hanging upside down on the feeder and chewing the seed ports until they fall out (along with all the seed). Metal replacement seed tubes are not available, but Customer Service graciously offered to send a new feeder (arrived in 2 days). I will attempt to modify the seed ports by securing metal washers.
