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.

A marvel of modern engineering...

-It does exactly what it says. Set it up correctly and squirrels can’t access the food. -It’s durable. Mine was accidentally dropped from 9 feet. The ring came apart but no serious damage. -Birds love it. -While Brome doesn’t recommend blends with larger pieces of fruit and nuts, I’ve been able to run those types of seed mixes through it just fine. And I’ve saved a ton of money on seed already. That stuff ain’t cheap. Overall this is just a great product. Despite concerns about the price point, I think it’s worth every penny and then some. Already shopping my next feeder. Great product, well done.

The main thing is the squirrels are frustrated and the birds love it. Well made. Finches, Cardinals, Woodpeckers, and Doves. Thank you.

The birds love it! The squirrels hate it! They are really frustrated! Works great!

Excellent Feeder

This is an excellent feeder. Birds are at it all the time. It holds a lot of seed and I need to fill it every few days but not every day due to the capacity. I highly recommend its purchase for titmice, chickadees, woodpeckers, goldfinches and whoever else stops by...Great customer service too.

Squirrel Buster Plus is everything that it is advertised. I have saved many many $$ with this feeder and my squirrels have lost weight 🙂 It costs a little more, but is worth the money!

Hey, Cardinals, there's a perching ring.

I purchased the Squirrel Buster + & Peanut Feeder this year. Excellent products. I like the two-week refill interval of the 'Plus'! There is a pair of cardinals who show up occasionally for on-patio seed but never perch on the cardinal ring. Why not?
