Product Description

Product Description

Stop squirrels stealing your precious birdfood. Squirrel Buster Mini is the compact, high quality birdfeeder that’s guaranteed 100% squirrel proof. Safe and humane, it’s fantastically effective at denying squirrels a free meal. When a squirrel climbs onto the feeder, its weight automatically shuts off the feeder ports, preventing access to seed. The patented Seed Tube Ventilation System lets fresh air enter seed ports and opening at the base of the feeder. Hot, humid air escapes at the top, keeping seed cool, fresh and appealing to birds. There’s a generous choice of perching and clinging options, making Squirrel Buster Mini popular with a wide range of different garden bird species. Perfectly sized for smaller gardens, Squirrel Buster Mini is ideal for use with seeds and blends. For extra peace of mind the feeder is backed by a 2-year guarantee. With over 1.5 million Squirrel Busters sold worldwide, there’s no better way to keep squirrels locked out of a free meal.

This is an excellent product - it really works. If your looking at this item you've probably got a shed full of old, damaged or destroyed bird feeders all thanks to the squirrels that attack them and like me you've probably spent loads of money trying to find a truely squirrel proof feeder. All I can say is this (for me / my garden) works!! - I've spent many years watching squirrels plunder "Squirrel proof" feeders so imagine how good it feels watching their frustration with this product. Some years ago I purchased the larger feeder in this range (of 4 feeders) - That works also, but I've always thought it to be a little to large for my space so I was reluctant to purchase another of that size, I was therefore pleased to see the manufacturer has now extended this range to 4 feeders and this smallest looked just right for me, large enough to not want re-filling that often whilst not being to large to frighten the birds.
As for the squirrels - They've tried, but the action when the feeder case drops with their weight seems to make them a little weary, I've seen a few drop off to the ground and now apart from the occassional brave attempt, they tend to leave it alone and look to clean up any seeds below the feeder. Really pleased with this purchase, would recommend.

This certainly works. Squirrels totally ignore it, and the bullfinches love it. Having four perch rings is an advantage too. I had the large, original model that held 1.5 kg of seed, and it was difficult to dismantle and clean when the seed got mouldy. This one has great ventilation, and is almost maintenance free. The larger model was evetually stolen lock, stock and barrel one winter night by foxes/badgers. I have hung this one in a high place to prevent theft. I have been using the mini for about six months, and am delighted with it.

I have laughed so many times since I bought this feeder, it's been worth the cost for entertainment value alone. It didn't take long for the local squirrel hooligans to see that a new source of goodies had arrived; they practically queued up to give it a go. They sussed out that hanging upside down and carefully lowering their furry little bodies down the feeder they would reach the food, but all too soon the feeder snapped shut, triggered by themselves..it was such fun to watch! They're wise to it now and actually give it a wide berth, running along the top of the fence to within twelve inches or so of the feeder, they then run down the fence, along the bottom for a couple of feet before running back up to the top. They obviously now view it with a great deal of suspicion.

It's taken the local bird population a little longer to realise that food is there, but gradualy they're alighting on the perches and taking food.

An all round success. So why four stars and not five? Because at can be a little fiddly to remove and rehang; obviously it needs to be hung fairly high up and as I am a smallish person I have to take a stool outside to reach it. Other than that it does what it says....it keeps the bird food safe for the intended diners.

I purchased this because i was having a problem with squirrels eating the bird seed in ordinary feeders. I must say it really works when i have seen the squirrel get on it the shroud cover comes down so cutting of the seed. They get quite annoyed cause they can't get to the food. Well worth the money.

I watched with perverse glee as my grey squirrels tried tag teams, sideways leaps, spinning, and even gnawing at the metal top. It's been up for over a year now, and all they've managed to do is damage the paintwork. As other reviewers have noted, though, location is crucial. I initially had it just within reach of a brick wall and my squirrels managed to cling by their toes to a strand of ivy to snack.

Although it's called a "mini bird feeder", it's the same size as a standard UK feeder. I found it easier to refill than my previous feeder, since the hook remains in place on the tree. Seeds do occasionally jam in the internal channels, but that's easy to spot, and fixed by a tap on the side.

Love it. So do my birds. Worth every penny.

Best thing ever. Only took a few days and when the squirrels realised they couldn't get to the food they quickly gave up. Going to buy another one. Would definitely recommend.

NOT Squirrel proof!! they hang from high up and have learnt not to touch the bit which activates the spring, they are so clever. If politicians were half as clever this country would not be in the mess it is!!!!
