The Squirrel Buster Bird Feeder is a value-priced, high quality truly squirrel-proof bird feeder. It provides both a perching and clinging environment, disassembles easily for cleaning and features seed tube ventilation to keep seed fresher.
Here are some things to check/implement with your Squirrel Buster Bird Feeder to make it truly squirrel-proof for adult red and gray squirrels (please note that juvenile red squirrels and chipmunks can sometimes access seed due to their light weight)
1) Observe the manufacturer's stated installation clearances, e.g. install the feeder with 18" of clearance between top of feeder and the branch it is hanging on, 18" of clearance from launching points below the feeder, and 18" radius of clearance around the sides of the feeder;
2) Don't exceed the maximum level of seed as indicated by the bottom of the yellow center post cap, otherwise the shroud will not be able to close properly;
3) Make sure the negative grip tube is in place on the hanging wire right against the top of the feeder to prevent squirrels from hanging by their hind legs from the wire.
No Tools Required
Our feeders are designed to be dismantled by hand into individual components without the use of tools.
The weight of an adult squirrel automatically closes the seed ports, denying access to the seed but not harming the squirrels in any way.
All feeder parts exposed to squirrels are made of chew proof metals or RoxResinTM, a remarkable 100% chew proof, waterproof, rustproof and UV stabilized material.
Transparent seed tubes trap solar energy, and conventional seed tube designs block the escape of the heated air. Our patented Seed Ventilation System permits humidity and hot air to escape through the vents at the top of the feeder and replaces it with fresh air. Bird food remains fresher, attracting more wild birds.
Waterproof and Weather Resistant
- All components are UV resistant keeping your feeder looking new.
- Use robust metal material, The bird feeder is waterproof and weather resistant, sturdy and durable.
Need for Clearance
Remember it’s a squirrel’s weight that triggers the closing mechanism. If a squirrel can reach over from a nearby foothold and avoid placing his weight on the feeder, he can access the birdseed. To overcome this problem, allow for at least 18 in./47 cm of clearance around the feeder. This will force the squirrel to climb onto the feeder and trigger the closing mechanism.
