fantastic product and customer service

SquirrelBuster® Standard
★★★★★
I've had many feeders over the years, but when I stumbled on the SquirrelBuster I knew I had the best. Contrary to some of the reviews, this feeder is absolutely squirrel proof. And, the ability to regulate the weight gives you control over the birds you want to attract. Pros: Without a doubt squirrel proof Easy to fill Easy to clean (I use a bottle brush) Weight adjustable closing mechanism Solid construction Hasn't rusted and has been outside for over a year in Cape Cod's humid, salty air Fantastic customer service (Maureen is the best!) Cons: Sometimes the feed gets stuck in the tube. I use the Wild Delight Zero-Waste Fruit Blend, which contains raisins and peanuts. They occasionally get stuck at the bottom of the tube requiring me to use a poker to dislodge them. A minor nuisance and not a show stopper. Sunflower seeds and other traditional mixes are not a problem at all. Wish List: Wish they made a racoon proof feeder

Best products and service ever!!

SquirrelBuster® Standard
★★★★★
I've had, and loved, my mini Squirrel Buster for years. A friend recently found me a used standard Squirrel Buster, but it was missing the hanger rod. Brome Bird Care sent me the hanger, absolutely free, by Express mail no less!! In addition, the seed holders on both Squirrel Busters were discolored by exposure to the elements, and Brome included two brand new seed holders as well!! I've truly never seen a company that stands by their products this way, and provides this level of Customer Service. These are the best squirrel-proof feeders I've ever found. I use safflower seed/finch seed blend in them, and they are visited by Painted Buntings, House Finches, Indigo Buntings, sparrows and more! NO squirrels! Thank you, Brome Bird Care!!!

squirrel buster classic

SquirrelBuster® Standard
★★★☆☆
When I took this apart to clean it, I was surprised to find that inside the cap, the squirrels had eaten into the plastic tube and had eaten into the vertical plastic mechanism. In addition the green metal cap is rusting, as are the perches. As to how the squirrels got into it, I can only surmise that either they figured out how to undo the cap or if it fell to the ground, the cap was loosened. This has been stored intact under my second story deck with the cap on, so I dont think it took place in the summer. As far as I know, only squirrels are the problem. It is still usable, but I am going to thread a narrow wire from the cap to the metal grids to make sure they cant get it off. I wonder if anyone else has ever experienced this?

By far the best bird feeder on the market. The squirrels have given up even trying although it was entertaining to watch them try. One question. Is it possible to add a Cardinal ring to a Standard feeder? My Cardinals come to the feeder but seem to have a difficult time perching on the rings.
- Teresa Mathias

Hi Teresa, thank you for the review. Unfotunately, the Cardinal Ring only works for the Plus model.

Dislike this feeder

SquirrelBuster® Standard
★☆☆☆☆
I cannot tell you how much I dislike this feeder, certainly compared to the larger ones. First of all, it is incredibly awkward to fill. I've finally learned how to do it without spilling all of the contents out - now maybe just 1/3 - do it's never really filled. The annoying dividers prevent larger - sunflower - seeds from getting down where birds can get at them so they sit there out of reach, and finally the hole where the hook fits into the holder has begun to rust. And this is all in good weather! The winter will be much worse. I would never buy this feeder again. Just a really poor product compared to the 2 larger ones I have.
- Pam

Hi Pam, thank you so much for your review! It saddens us to hear that the Mini has disappointed you. It is easier to fill this feeder if you place it on a table. If the hanger rod gets too rusty, please call us on 1-800-856-5685, and we'll replce it for free as your Mini came with Lifetime Care.
