Hyde Squirrel Dilemma Vinyl-Coated Wire Bird Feeder
The Squirrel Dilemma from Hyde is the ultimate squirrel-proof feeder for yards where airborne squirrels are attacking from the trees above. No more squirrel mess with this high-impact poly resin seed reservoir! The Squirrel Dilemma is surrounded by vinyl-coated wire and features a heavy duty zinc die-cast top to discourage squirrel tampering, This feeder is like three feeders in one, and with its utilization of Evenseed technology, you'll never have to worry about all the seed being stuck in one tube or only being able to use one kind of seed at a time. This is the solution for you if you need a compact bird feeder that selectively allows birds to feed but keeps squirrels from being able to get to the source. Holds up to 4 lbs. of seed at a time!
• Dimensions: 18 1/2 for the square inserts; with cage, 20"
• 3 1/2 each x 3 1/2 x 6 1/2 insert
Very clear inserts to view how much seed is still in there...plenty of ports for several birds at a time, and easy to clean..also does not take up much space to hang.
I have no doubt that this is a great feeder although we haven't used it yet. We have one that the new one will replace that we bought 35 years ago and until it completely gives up the ghost my husband will not change. It is all ready to go when the time comes.
We've used a squirrel's dilemma feeder for nearly 20 years! With a little mending, they have even survived bears. We are on #3 now! Love them!
I have had one for 10+ years and recently purchased one for my grandson. Very durable, no moving parts and replacement parts are available from the company!
Best--most durable, practical, and effective bird feeder ever-- BAR NONE ! This is our second one. The first continues to serve us after 15 + years. The second will occupy another space. Amazing, truly amazing in this day and age of early obsolescence and temporal design.
Great 'anti-squirrel' bird feeder. Only drawback might be the cylindrical tubes that the feed has to pass through to fill the bottom 2 seed holders....works great so far but as it gets older it might become hard to fill
This is a Great feeder, lasts quite a while, until I forget to bring it in and the bears get at it.
I love this feeder! I had a previous version which had lasted for 15 years and finally fell victim to a bear! It is an excellent product and the birds love it! The squirrels hate it which works great for everyone!
It is squirrel proof, easy to replace the feed and lots of portals. There are no moving parts. What's not to love?
It is exactly as advertised, good price, and speedy shipping!
This is a wonderful item and it was packed well. The service was great too. Thanks so much!
Unfortunately, I have been unable to keep the squirrels from using it. The birds seem to like it.
A good feeder. Only 2 criticisms: The top does not fit smoothly and the dividers make it a bit hard to fill.
It is difficult to get the seed to the middle and bottom compartments because the center tube does not release it into them. So it needs refilling more often because they only get half-full. Have 3 other Hyde feeders but they don't have a center tube. Excellent squirrel deterrent design and most birds seem to prefer this design over others I've tried.
This is a great feeder. All the song birds love it and it will hold large numbers of them. I had one before and it lasted many years.
The feeder is wonderful...sturdy...and holds enough seed (and perches) for a great variety of my birds, from woodpeckers, to finches, rose-breasted grosbeaks, wrens and chickadees. Keeping the squirrels off of it has been a real challenge...but I believe, the large round piece of tin, I covered the pole with, has kept their little paws from getting a purchase on it, to climb up. I saw the feeder at a client's house and finally found you, on line. Thanks so much, it's the best feeder I've ever used!
This is a great feeder! I had one for about 5 years and now the plastic tubes are all cracked. I am looking for replacement tubes.
I had the same model for a few years before it fell in a storm and shattered the feed chamber. It is very easy to fill and the triple chamber allows birds to feed at three levels even as the seed is consumed. Even with a dome over the feeder, the squirrels still find a way to make a leap three feet from a limb and grab on to the protective grid and somehow empty the seed quickly. But other than not being able to totally solve the squirrel problem, I am very pleased with item.
