Squirrel Buster Suet Feeder

by Brome

A truly innovative squirrel-proof suet bird feeder. No more greasy fingers with mess-free suet loading. Two 5 x 5 suet cakes allow a number of woodpeckers, nuthatches, titmice and chickadees to feed at the same time. No suet goes wasted: two crumb ports will catch the suet that birds drop. This suet feeder is weight-adjustable so that you can control which size birds will feed there.

Comes with Lifetime Care.

Here are some things to check/implement with your Squirrel Buster Suet 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) 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.

Squirrel Buster Suet Feeder

The squirrel buster suet feeder works perfectly! Easy to use for humans and birds. Frustrating for squirrels.

It works great for squirrel busting, unfortunately birds stay clear of this suet feeder, I occasionally get a woodpecker or a nuthatch went before I had what a huge amount of birds coming to my feeders.

Thanks for your feedback. Looks like you've had the feeder for about 10 days. It can sometimes take the birds several weeks to adjust to a new type of feeder. I suggest checking the weight control spring's tension to make sure that's set in a good place. It may take a little more time before you see the volume of use you had before, but I am hopeful you will. Here's a link to adjusting the suet spring tension under instructional videos: Hope this helps!

Item as good as described - Suirrel Buster Suet Feeder

The design of the spring is clever and instruction is good.

Cant imagine our yard without it anymore - birds love it, squirrels despise it.

This feeder has already paid for itself in suet savings. Suet was a treat that never lasted more than a day or two for us, with starlings and squirrels quickly consuming it. This has completely solved those problems. We can keep suet out every day, and the woodpeckers have never been happier. The feeder closes under the weight of non-birds, or under the quick probing motions of the starlings.

I originally hung this from a simple hook, and we had a small problem where some animal was able to twist the feeder until it broke the rod with the hole for the hanging wire. Brome was amazingly helpful and send a replacement part quickly.

We then hung it on a spinning carabiner, but the raccoons figured out how to open it (that's right, we saw them do it - the clever little things). So a locking spinning carabiner finally did the tick (picture of the type we used attached).

So glad you and the birds are enjoying this feeder! Thank you very much for sharing your lessons learned, too!

The birds are slowly getting used to this feeder. I haven’t seen them on it but they have been because there is less suet.NOT ONE RASCALLY SQUIRRELL!!!! Thank you, Brome Squirrel Busters!!!
