The need for clearance

Remember it’s the squirrel’s weight that triggers the closing mechanism. If a squirrel can reach over from a nearby foothold and avoid placing weight on the feeder, he will have access to the seed ports. Allow for at least 18 inches or 47 cm of clearance around the feeder. This will force the squirrel to climb onto the feeder, thus triggering the closing mechanism.

Locating your feeder

You can locate this bird feeder anywhere and be squirrel free. Position it to get great close-up views of your favorite birds. Hang your feeder over a window, in a tree, on a deck, a fence, in your garden, on the side of your house, from a rain trough or over sliding doors. Use brackets, extension hooks and tree hooks to hang your feeder at the recommended clearance. Hooks and brackets are available at birding stores, garden centers and hardware supply stores. Your feeder prevents squirrels from eating expensive seed, scaring the birds and damaging your feeder. Enjoy being free of squirrel problems, but please remember, squirrels also need to eat. For the price of a few peanuts, or inexpensive cracked corn, squirrels will be happy to entertain.

Talked with Amada regarding a racoon breaking my feeder. She knew exactly what piece I needed to get my feeder back in action. Great customer service!!! thank you

The Birds Love It

★★★★★
I have found that shelled peanuts are the favorite. It is not suited for all birds by the design. However, the larger birds (and squirrels) eat the peanuts from the ground when they are available (although a few really clever birds hover and grab a peanut or knock one loose). As I write, there are several birds are eating. This feeder, combined with the new suet feeder (which I use peanut suet) has attracted almost every kind of Woodpecker we have — even the rarely seen but often heard, Pileated Woodpecker. Their young also use the feeder.

Feeder pays for itself

★★★★★
Squirrel Buster stands up to its name. Squirrels hate this feeder because they can not get access to the nuts contained within the feeder, yet the nuthatches, titmice, and various woodpeckers have no issue at all. Although a bit pricey (but you get what you pay for), the cost of the feeder saves many times the cost of the nuts that would be lost to the squirrels compared to other feeders. Spend the money on the feeder and save lots of money on the nuts and seed.

Worked Great at First

★★★★☆
Worked great as the squirrels could not get in to it by hanging on it. HOWEVER, they have figured out how to remove it from the shepherd's crook, which seperates it into its components whej it falls on the ground, so the squirrels get ALL the peanuts in it. NOT truly squirrel proof!!

Cardinals cannot eat from this feeder.

★☆☆☆☆
Cardinals cannot eat from this feeder. It is also very difficult for other birds, such as Blue Jays, to get their beaks into the tiny holes. This feeder may be squirrel proof, but it is also bird proof! Half of the birds that cam could not get their beaks into the holes, and they left, discouraged. You are better off with a platform feeder.

Susan, Thank you for your review. The Squirrel Buster Nut Feeder is designed for clinging birds such as woodpeckers and nuthatches. Cardinals, as ground feeding/perching birds, will not be comfortable eating from this feeder. Also - did you know that this feeder came with 2 different size meshes? If you are not satisfied with the smaller mesh, please try switching to the larger one. If you have any questions, you can give us a call at 1-800-856-5685.

Excellent Customer Service

I purchased the Squirrel Buster Peanut feeder several years ago. Yesterday we had a strong wind. The feeder blew out of the tree and a small piece on the bottom broke off. There is a 1-800 service number stamped clearly on the unit. I called it, and 2 minutes later the problem was solved. The required piece will arrive in 4 to 5 days. There was no cost to myself. Not even shipping. EXEMPLARY CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! I will buy all my bird products from Brome, from now on!
