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.

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, 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.

Wonderful feeder

★★★★★
This is awesome feeder. Squirrels hate it because they can’t fool it or chew into it. Had it four years a bear got it once and a raccoon twice. Just bought a new one and will order parts for old one.

Brome is an amazing Company

★★★★★
First of all I have owned two of their squirrel buster models for a couple of years now in South Florida (wet and warm) and they definitely stop the squirrels. I have had occasion to contact them about minor items which turned out I may have been the cause of a failure, but they bend over backwards to fix or replace anything on their products. I have never experienced a company who stands so completely behind their products. I saw a one star in the review section, something about it breaking or whatever. If you have any problems they will fix them...maybe the one star person had a faulty item, but Brome stands behind their products.
