More Birds- Squirrel-X MX5
Feed birds (not squirrels!) and discourage bully birds with the revolutionary Squirrel-X MX5 Squirrel-Proof Bird Feeder! If a squirrel tries to feed on any of the 4 spring-loaded perches, the MX5’s integrated design shuts every port simultaneously, stopping racketeering rodents right in their tracks. The weather guard hinders squirrels from reaching the seed ports from the roof and blocks out larger bully birds. The durable, round design of the 4 comfort perches attracts a wide variety of bird species. The MX5 disassembles into 3 simple sections for thorough cleaning. Its generous 3.4 lb. seed capacity lasts longer between fillings. The push-and-twist metal locking lid quickly removes for effortless refilling. With a durable UV-stabilized polycarbonate tube, elegant dome design and oil-rubbed bronze finish, the MX5 combines strength & style to bring you the ultimate in squirrel-proof bird feeding and your best defense against squirrels!
Placement to deter squirrels: The key to keeping a feeder successfully squirrel-proofed is the placement. Place a bird feeder 4 feet from the ground and 8 feet from anything a squirrel can jump from. When hanging from a pole by a hook, it is recommended that the hook have at least a 16” distance from the pole. Placing a baffle on the pole or having a caged feeder will also help to ensure squirrel-proof success.
Cleaning: Please! For the sake of the birds, keep your feeder clean! Dirty feeders spread disease. We recommend disinfecting your bird feeders once a month in winter and more often in hot and humid weather. Soak all parts in a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and water. Use a bird feeder brush to brush away grime inside the tube. Then remove any hardware and clean with a solution of mild soap and water, rinsing thoroughly. Refill when completely dry
