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.

Love this feeder

★★★★★
I had this feeder for years! We travelled all over North America and Mexico in our RV and I packed it along! Sadly I forgot it at a National Park-I called later and asked they use it at their bird watching area and they were happy to do so! Must get another one!

Darn Squirrels

★★★☆☆
This was a good feeder for a period of time. The birds loved it, but, so did the squirrels. I found this thing on the ground and upon investigation, found the yellow plastic arm that the cable connects to, chewed away by squirrels. How do I know it was a squirrel and not a racoon? Because I took pictures of a squirrel, head first inside the feeder, with nothing but his hind legs sticking out. anyway, for a few months it worked great.

Mark, Thank you for your review! Please don’t forget to follow our recommendation of an 18-inch clearance on all sides when hanging your feeder. You can find more information in the brochure that came with your feeder or you can always give us a call at 1-800-856-5685.

Squirrel Solution 200 works

★★★★★
This feeder seems to be squirrel proof--at least my flock of squirrels has given up on it. Also relatively easy to clean when seed gets wet and gummed up. Kind of funny watching the squirrels slide down the shepherds' hook like little firemen! I've recommended this feeder to others.

Top Quality

★★★★★
I can't remember exactly when I bought my Squirrel Solution 200 feeder, but I was happy when the squirrels quickly learned that they could not get to the food. The feeder has been outside now for years in hot and freezing weather with no issue whatsoever. I can now say that the feeder is also bear proof. Last night a full grown bear came for the bird seed and ripped the screwed-in cast iron hanger right off of my house with the feeder attached. I waited until morning to check out the damage. The hanger was nowhere to be found, but the now empty feeder was in my back yard in perfect condition! I will not need to order a new one. As soon as I replace the hanger, I can fill it and replace it. I know my birds will be happy again. I may also need to bring it in at night to avoid any more visitations. Thank you for making a bird feeder that exceeded all expectations!

Classic Bird Feeder

★★★★★
Love this product. Squirrels do not get to the feeder as we followed the instructions "18 inches away from the tree branch". The only negative is the food that squirrels hate with cayenne pepper - well they nibble on the droppings from the feeder. All in all I am very happy with this feeder.

Not sure yet

★★☆☆☆
I've had the solution 200 feeder for a week now. Nothing has touched it... and I mean birds. The birds want nothing to do with it. Now I'll give it another week but it looks like I have an expensive feeder that'll never be used.
- Brandy

Brandy, Please don’t give up just yet. Cornell Lab of Ornithology says that it can take birds up to 2 months to discover and then get used to a new feeder. Also please make sure that the feeder is located close to cover and there are no cats or other predators roaming about. Please don't be shy to call us at 1-800-856-5685.
