I have owned several Squirrel Be Gone Feeders for many years and purchased 2 more this season when I relocated some of my other feeders. When the squirrels gave up on the seed and started eating the feeder I went to the web site and did an online chat with Shawn. He was awesome and I now have new feeders for my yard. It is nice to see that CUSTOMER SERVICE is still alive and well at some companies. Thank you.
