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.

The Peanut Feeder is unique

This gives the bigger birds something to keep them busy while my other feeders supply the smaller ones. It attracts Woodpeckers, Jays and more. Some hang on the side, some use it vertically ( the shape supports the tails of larger birds) I may buy an second and put it further out in the yard, but this one is fun watching the squirrels do the best and fail. I have given this a gift to compliment other feeders.

Great but tube assembly weak point

Very nice for thwarting squirrels. But eventually, their persistence will cause the tube assembly to fail, and dropped the ground. the tube assembly is held in place by three thin plastic posts under the shroud-No reinforcement Rods, like rebar in concrete. The squirrels’ constant banging on the feeder will eventually cause those posts to weaken and snap. I had two of the three give out on one day, And the third post finally conceded the peanuts to the squirrels few days later. Only problem I have is that Brome can’t get me the replacement part for six weeks. So I’m out of commission, meantime. My woodpeckers and nuthatches will have to go elsewhere

Awesome customer service!

I purchased a peanut feeder earlier this spring and love it, however I realized I was missing the screw on the bottom of the stand assembly. I emailed customer service and promptly received a replacement screw. A few weeks ago I had placed the feeder on my deck off the pole while the lawn was mowed. The next day I saw the feeder tipped over, emptied of peanuts and the shroud was off the feeder and no where to be found ! My daughter said she heard some strange noises at 4 am that night outside her open window but never looked. Something took the shroud! I emailed Maureen and explained the missing shroud. In less than a week , a new shroud was received!! I am so grateful for your awesome customer service and will continue to purchase Brome feeders! I have two other squirrel busters and they have lasted many years and bring much enjoyment from watching all the birds that come each day!

GREAT product & customer service

I have been using my 4 Squirrel Buster feeders for about 5 years & love them. Many friends & co-workers have purchased them on my recommendation & love them as well. It was so easy to get replacement parts from your friendly & helpful staff. Thank you so much for a great product & customer care.

Works pretty well with small adjustment

The Peanut+ works very well, although I figured out a couple of adjustments due to some pretty persistent squirrels. First, they were actually lifting the whole feeder off of the hook when about half-full, so I attached it to a clip instead. Then they really got clever and lifted the little metal sleeve and somehow nibbled at where the hook goes through the hole until the feeder dropped. I manage to thwart this by occasionally tightening the hook part in a vice for a more snug fit. That kept it squirrel proof and we've had this feeder for a very long time.

Beats the squirrels every time.

Love my Plus feeder so bought this one for variety. Unfortunately I have just thrown the food away as one section was moldy. Not had any issues with the Plus so unsure what's gone wrong. Holding off on the Finch one until this is solved but still love my feeders.
