Everything about this feeder is designed to deter squirrels, from the tough steel outer mesh shroud to the spring-activated port access. The Peanut Squirrel Buster is ideal for feeding shelled peanuts to nuthatches, woodpeckers, and other nut-loving birds, but NOT squirrels. The mesh port is sized perfectly to let birds peck small bits but not fly away with large pieces. The mesh port also works for seed nuggets. When a squirrel jumps onto the feeder, his weight activates the inner spring mechanism, forcing the outer mesh shroud to close off the feeding tube.
A spring tension knob on the feeder bottom lets you decide which birds visit, too. Squirrels will always be locked out, but you can also set the tension to keep out larger, greedier birds, as well. Feeder features a hard-to-grip plastic tube attached to the mesh port, as well as a hard-to-grip top and bottom to keep squirrels at bay. Hanger is encased in slippery, powder-coated steel to dissuade squirrels from climbing. 4.5" dia x 18" long, hold 3/4 qt.
