The Squirrel Buster Mini is the most affordable Squirrel Buster Feeder ever offered. The unbeatable Squirrel Buster technology makes this 3/4 quart feeder truly squirrel proof.

The seed tube ventilation keeps seed fresher and dryer for our feathered friends.
The Mini comes with Lifetime Care and is the winner of the 2008 Best New Product award at Birdwatch America.
Here are some things to check/implement with your Squirrel Buster Mini Feeder to make it truly squirrel-proof for adult red and gray squirrels (please note that juvenile red squirrels and chipmunks can sometimes access seed due to their light weight):
1) Observe the manufacturer's stated installation clearances, e.g. install the feeder with 18" of clearance between top of feeder and the branch it is hanging on, 18" of clearance from launching points below the feeder, and 18" radius of clearance around the sides of the feeder;
2) Don't exceed the maximum level of seed otherwise the shroud will not be able to close properly; and
3) Make sure the negative grip tube is in place on the hanging wire right against the top of the feeder to prevent squirrels from hanging by their hind legs from the wire.
