  Amazon Review, 
Reviewer:

I have a feeding station with this feeder, a finch sock, a mesh sunflower feeder, a waterer, and a top mounted squirrel proof feeder on top. Also 2 suet feeders attached to the pole. By far this little wire wrapped feeder is the most active feeder of them all. The sparrows love it and I will get more than 6 at a time fighting to get a perch, while the other feeders sit empty. The big one on top has the same feed in it and rarely has a bird at it unless this one is all full up and no place to land.

  Amazon Review, great bird feeder 
Reviewer:

This feeder is replacing an identical one I have used for 6 years with no problems. I love it, it stops the wasting of seed and takes a rough treatment with our area winds. I broke my previous one when I chipped away ice.

  Amazon Review, Really is Squirrel Proof! 
Reviewer:

I feel a little bad for the squirrels....so close are they to the bird food but they just can't get at it with this feeder. I had to refill my old feeder almost every day because the squirrels ate all the bird see, plus they destroyed the feeder. I've had this feeder for a few weeks now and have not had to refill it once. They birds love it, my cat loves watching them.

  Amazon Review, Not Stumped! 
Reviewer:

This is the most non-squirrel proof feeder EVER! LOL... We knew it would be when we saw it in the store but since pretty much every other "squirrel proof" feeder we've ever had has been chewed to bits by squirrels as they attempt to beat the spring mechanisms, etc, we figured this one would be easy for them to get into and they wouldn't be tempted to chew the plastic parts. As long as we keep it full, they don't seem to be destroying it. It is like a jungle gym for squirrels :) We still get birds and we enjoy watching the squirrels.

  NOT squirrel proof 
Reviewer:

I bought this feeder last week at Home Depot thinking it was true to it's name... Squirrel Stumper. It is not true to its name. It took them a few days but they figured out if they hang by their feet they can eat the seeds. This past weekend we changed the hanger to a very small wire and thought for sure they wouldn't figure it out. It took a couple days but again they did it. I have seen them fall off a bunch of times while trying but not after eating seeds for awhile. Today I was lucky enough to snap a picture of the squirrel hanging by his feet... if you want to see a picture you can go to the review that i wrote on my website. http://www.curiousdaisy.com/wordpress/2012/03/perky-pet-squirrel-stumper/

Thank you for your online review! As you have experienced protecting your birdfeeder from squirrels can be an endless battle for many backyard birdfeeders like yourself. Using a caged feeder like the Perky-Pet® Squirrel Stumper is one way to protect your feeder from damage. You can also try spring loaded feeders like the Perky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone™ Wild Bird Feeder (model 336). When squirrels attempt to feed from these feeders their weight will close the feeder ports.

 

To avoid these pests from accessing your feeder often times a more holistic approach is needed. Try hanging your feeder 10 feet from the nearest squirrel launching site and at least 5 feet off of the ground.

 

We hope you have found these tips helpful. If you have questions or need assistance please do not hesitate to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973).

  Review Posted on Amazon.com 
Reviewer:

I bought this product around a month ago at home depot in-store for about ten bucks. it's hanging in the backyard off of a metal shepherd's hook garden stake, perhaps 3-4' from the fence, and thus far I haven't seen any squirrels on it. I'd chalk some of that up to the deterrent powers of my lightning-fast whippets, but I still get plenty of bunnies and chipmunks enjoying the banquet under the feeder, so maybe not. I bought a squirrel baffle at the same time, and haven't bothered to use it (planning on returning it, as it cost $5 more than the feeder).

this thing holds tons of seed and has 4 ports midway down the tube and another 4 at the base, so plenty of birds can feed at one time. the bottom of the metal outer cage is capped with a narrow metal dish, forming a saucer that a lot of the seed pools in - most birds seem to prefer picking out their fave seed type from the dish rather than the ports. the clinging birds do great with the cage, and the perching birds grip the edge of the dish fine, so everyone is happy. it's lightweight and the central tube is made of clear hard plastic, so I'm sure it will cloud up or crack in years to come, but it was ten whole dollars, so it's ok to think of it as a one- or two-season item.

it took about a week for any birds to find the feeder (never had one before), but there's enough birds there now that i keep binoculars by the back porch door because i need them non-stop. I'm using an "eastern regional seed blend", and today I've seen cardinals, white breasted nuthatches, 3 different sparrow types, siskins, house finches, and a tufted titmouse eating at this feeder. the house sparrows are messy, flinging seed out of that narrow metal dish, so I've also seen a chubby-cheeked chipmunk, more cardinals, and mourning doves foraging underneath it.

Reviewer:

Quality product and price is just!
I tied to the bottom a small plastic flower saucer as a platform to prevent seeds from falling on the ground, and also - to provide better place for perching of bigger birds, such as cardinal. The feeder works perfectly, and birds love it. And squirrels couldn't get the seeds from the container - the metal frame is very strong and all outer parts are made from metal. A squirrel once managed to get on the saucer and had seeds from it. But I replaced the rope with a very thin wire, and now it looks completely squirrel proof and resistant. Good product and price is just - I bought it for $10 in Wal-Mart.

Reviewer:

Like the feeder but the squirrel just hangs on the side and eats from the openings. The design does keep the food from spilling out too easily when it jumps off and the feeder swings.

  Bird Stumper 
Reviewer:

I originally purchased this feeder to help deter larger undesirable birds such as starlings and black birds. It does a fairly good job at it, as it's uncomfortable for them to cling onto this feeder. They get discouraged and don't stay on it for long. I don't get squirrels so I can't really comment on that aspect.

When I first put this feeder out, the birds had a learning curve with it. They couldn't figure it out, but now that they have, it's constantly used. My red bellied woodpecker loves this feeder. For a clinging bird, it's easy for them to hold onto and feed from. I like the seed capacity of this feeder. It holds enough seed to let it go for a few days without having to refill. The design also discourages picky birds to sift and dump unwanted seed as seen in tray/troth feeders.

  Squirrels are not stumped 
Reviewer:

As another reviewer stated, the squirrels hang from their hind legs from the top of the feeder eating the seed from the bottom ports. They have no problem getting at the seed and when the seed on the bottom tray runs out they used their front paws to scoop out more seed. I'm hesitant to get any of the pressure closing feeders since they never apply any of their weight at the feeder ports since they hang from their hind legs on the top of the feeder and eat away.

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback regarding the Perky-Pet® Squirrel Stumper (model 114). We appreciate your comments and have shared them with our Product Development Team.

Squirrels can be very persistent and sometimes a more holistic approach is needed to deter them. You may want to try placing or hanging your feeder on a pole that is 10 feet away from the nearest tree, fence or launching place making sure it is at least 5 feet above the ground. Also adding a squirrel baffle above and or below your feeder is very effective in preventing squirrels from gaining access.

We hope this information helps. If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for additional assistance.

Not a squirrel proof feeder. They just hang on upside down from the wire cage and gorge themselves at the feeder openings!!!!

  This is not squirrel proof 
Reviewer:

This feeder does not keep squirrels out. The seed comes out on a tray at the bottom and the squirrels can feed freely. Also the holes in the mesh that ssurround the seed tube are too big and they can reach through and get the seeds.

Dear Cathy,

Thank you for sharing your feedback on the Perky-Pet® Squirrel Stumper (model 114).  We are sorry to hear you were not satisfied with this feeder.  Please keep in mind the wire cage on the feeder is meant to prevent squirrel damage to the feeder. 

To help prevent squirrels from raiding the seed in your feeder there are a few things we recommend.  You may want to add a squirrel baffler to the feeder.  A baffler can be placed above or below your feeder to prevent them from gaining access to your feeder.  Perky-Pet® offers the Perky Pet® Metal Pole Squirrel Baffler.

Placement of your feeder can also play a factor in keeping squirrels off of your feeder.  The feeder should be at least 4-5 feet above ground and 10 feet away from any thing that the squirrel can launch from.

We hope you find this information to be helpful.  If you have questions or need assistance please do not hesitate to contact our Consumer Relations Team at the following:
