Review Rateleaky ant attractant
a terrible item. I bought one a few years ago and it dripped puddles of sugar water attracting ants. this year I still needed to replace my old feeder so I bought another one and it did the same thing attracting ants.Response From Zareba®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience and would like the opportunity to learn more.
To prevent leaking, we recommend turning the feeder upright quickly to create a vacuum. Placing the feeder in an area with little to no wind and out of direct sunlight will help prevent leaking as well.

Review Rateawful feeder
leaks leaks leaks attracts more ants than birdsResponse From Zareba®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience and would like the opportunity to learn more.
The feeder should not leak after being turned upright quickly to create a vacuum. Hummingbirds often prefer to feed in shaded, sheltered environments. Placing the feeders in a shaded area with little to no wind will make the hummingbirds happy, as well as help prevent leaking.

Review RateLeaky mess
I have been using your products for most of my life. These are horrible, I bought a second one, thinking maybe I had a bad one. I so wish I had my old feeders. Hard to clean and all! I have one left, I will do my best to find another brand that doesn't leak. Waste of my time and money, as I am far from any stores to replace them! Oh, the birds attack the one old feeder I have. They won't go to these except when there's too many birds on the old one!Response From Zareba®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateHummingbirds not feeding with new style feeder
We've used your product for years but in 2015 we bought a new one. For some reason, the hummingbirds would drink from it. We replaced in 2016 & had some activity but we just put it back out & once again a problem. We initially saw 2 hummers try to drink but they didn't & flew off & since, no birds at all. There must be a design problem the last 2 years?Response From Zareba®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateNew designs have multiple problems
I have used Perky Pet feeders for at least 27 years, and finally broke down and ordered the newer design feeders to replace all of my old, many-times -rebuilt and part-replaced originals. I liked some of the new design features, but it's apparent the designers did not account for why the old designs attracted birds better than any other designs. For instance: small 4 flower feeder leaks like a sieve, as it lacks the internal bulkhead/air lock that the first design had. Flower (bee) guards are too tall for the birds to easily access the tubes. The low angle/position of the perches and the taller (raised center) bee guard flowers on the larger feeders preclude the bird's ability to perch and feed; they have to hover to access the food. I do like the concept of cleaning the feeders by disassembly, but the apparent difficulty of the birds reaching the water is driving my usual local birds away. Years past, I make as much as a half-gallon of food daily: so far this year I am dumping most of the water due to spoiling - the birds just can't seem to get to the food. Very disappointing - and thinking of resurrecting my old feeders until I can no longer use them.Response From Zareba®Susan : Consumer Relations Representative

Review Ratevery, very poorly designed.
This is worst hummingbird feeder that Perky-Pet has ever put on the market, along with the plastic version! An outright rip-off! When the wind blows even a little, the feeder sways and spills out it's contents to the ground. If you can't design something better than that, get out of the business! Just threw out my plastic version from last year. Taking the glass version back to Canadian Tire this weekend, after just purchasing it a week ago. Note: Even your expensive glass/brass/bronze ones do not hold their fluid! Hire an engineer or even a talented high school student!Response From Zareba®Susan : Consumer Relations Representative

When the bottle is tightly secured to the base, this feeder should not leak. However, if placed in a windy location, some nectar may leak out when tilted. For best results, we recommend placing feeders in sheltered locations. Hummingbirds prefer feeding in calm environments and this will also help prevent leaking.

Review RateThis model feeds Orioles - be sure to weigh it down prevent spills
I was going to buy this one again but it's out of stock - hope it isn't discontinued! I like the 'feeding pipes' design because i can take the beeguard off (I just spray bees with a quirt of water and they're gone) so the Orioles can drink. The designs with built-in hole covers are too small, the orioles gave up. PS a solution for wind and Orioles who hang on the sides and tip - just hang a flowerpot/basket underneath - use 3 or 4 nylon strings to attach from the hook to equidistant spots on the basket and I even have a plastic container of water with a half lid of jelly. Everybody's happy. When I got a good birdbath, I replaced the water with some rocks to weigh the basket down.
Review RateTerrible Leak
I have bought Perky-Pet brand before with no problems. However, the Pinch Waist with the easy to clean base LEAKS. As many others have stated on this site. Previous models have had an inner gasket (if you will), this one with the wide mouth does not. Don't tell me to fill, tighten and not hang in a breeze (I'm over 50 and have been feeding the hummingbirds for years without any issues)! Never had this problem before. Very disappointed.Response From Zareba®Susan : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RatePinch waist bottle feeder
I like this style of feeder because it does not require so much nector for each one therefore I keep several around the house and the new bottles have a wider mouth and are easier to fill. Also the hanger cap with the reservoir top help to keep the ants out and I do not have to use a separate ant trap. I replaced several of my od feeders due to sun deterioration this year. FYI - Orioles would nt come to the oriole feeder but they do come to the hummingbird feeder so I have done away with thatoe.
