Birdscapes® Squirrel-Be-Gone I® Feeder and Repellent
The anti-squirrel technology of this squirrel proof birdfeeder and our repellent spray makes this combination one of the best ways to keep squirrels away from your feeders.
Birdscapes® Squirrel-Be-Gone I® Feeder
The eight perch/feeding station set-up, coupled with the anti-squirrel technology makes this squirrel proof birdfeeder one of the most economical and convenient on the market!
The Birdscapes® Squirrel-Be-Gone I® Wild Bird Feeder features 8 U-shaped perches, 8 feeding ports and a 6 lb. seed capacity. The interior seed tower is surrounded by metalwork. The clear, shatter-proof plastic reservoir makes it easy to monitor seed levels.;
How does this squirrel proof birdfeeder work? Its feeding ports have sturdy metal perches that allow birds to feed comfortably, but when the squirrels perch on them, their weight causes the entire metal casing to slip down, completely blocking the feeding ports and their access to the seed.
Remember to clean your squirrel proof birdfeeder once every two weeks with a mild soap and water solution.

We bought this feeder for our lakehouse. We have had hours of enjoyment watching a variety of birds come to feed. We have also had fun watching our many squirrels come and hang off the tree and eat our bird seed. We have our feeder hanging from a plant hanger hook mounted to a tree trunk. The squirrels hang out from the side of the tree trunk and eat the seed without any problem. We enjoy watching all of our critters eat.

Okay, so I am a reformed skeptic! This feeder has provided me with more entertainment value than any backyard addition! Squirrels cannot get seed! And they fall like leaves after trying! My birds are eating - the fat squirrels are loosing weight! I t's been a week - and I really need to set up a web cam to watch the invasion attempts from the little rodents!

I received this feeder as a gift and love it. However the squirrels have no problem getting into it. They come from the top and as they step on it the top lid slides open so the squirrel can go inside the feeder.

Thank you for reviewing the Birdscapes® Squirrel-Be-Gone I™ Feeder (model #350). Keeping squirrels from stealing bird seed is a constant battle for many backyard bird feeders. There are few additional things you can to keep the squirrels at bay. Providing squirrels with their own food source away from your feeders is one way. Feeder placement is another option. Place your feeder on a pole that is 10 feet away from the nearest tree, fence or launching place and 5 feet above the ground. For more details on protecting your feeder and the birds that enjoy them please feel free to visit our Learning Center.
We hope you have found this information to be helpful. If you have questions or need assistance do not hesitate to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973).
poor performance on repelling squirrels September 12, 2011
I LOVE this bird feeder because its large and holds quite a bit of seed. The major reason I bought this feeder was to baffle the squirrels, but this feeder has NOT done the trick. The "spring", although adjusted to the lightest configuration, doesn't allow the feeder to close when a squirrel climbs up on it. I am so frustrated with this thing because it isn't working properly!! Other bafflers that I've used have worked fine and shut automatically when a squirrel climbs on them, but this one does not!!

Thank you for sharing your feedback! We are sorry to hear you had a difficult time with the spring mechanism on your Birdscapes® Squirrel-Be-Gone Feeder (model 350). The springs should have defiantly closed the feeding ports completely with the weight of a squirrel. From your description it sounds like there was a problem with your particular feeder. We apologize for the inconvenience you experienced and want to make this right. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-800-800-1819, opt 1 so we can assist you.
This unit performed OK as a feeder. Squirrels when approaching it from top couldn't get any seeds (as advertised). However when they jump from the side on the feeder they often open the top lid with lateral force of the jump - regardless how tight we tried to secure the lid.
The most sad thing occurred when a squirrel has got inside and while crawling backwards, her finger/claw got stuck in the gap between clear plastic side walls. The clear seed compartment consists of 4 separate plastic walls connected with each other only at top and bottom having gaps along corners. When we tried to free the squirrel, the poor animal was so scared of us that she ran leaving her torn off finger stuck in the feeder...
I strongly believe that this feeder should not be sold until its design is improved.
The feeder was purchased in Home Depot store in Ontario, Canada.
