If you've ever owned a hummingbird or oriole feeder, then you're familiar with the swarms of bees that can surround unprotected feeders. With the Perky Pet Hex oriole feeder, you won't have that problem. The feeder features a perch-activated bee guard that opens when a hummingbird or oriole lands on it, revealing the nectar inside.

The stylish hexagonal 36-ounce bottle is made of durable plastic that will last years. Give your orioles the peace of mind they deserve with the Perky Pet Hex oriole feeder.


• Perch-activated bee guard feeding stations

• Bird's weight lowers perch to reveal oriole nectar for feeding

We have really enjoyed our oriole feeder. A pair started feeding when we first set up the feeder and now we have what we suspect are the juvenile offspring feeding from it as well.

This is a good product, had before, only had one other style oriole feeder, no longer mfg, that the orioles like better. Hard to get them to feed here.

Wonderful product! This was my first year for orioles, and they LOVED this feeder; the bee guards work very well at keeping insects out of the feeder.

This is my second time purchasing of this product for my father-in-law (in Southeastern Missouri). It is a great product that is utilized by both the Oriole and Hummingbirds at my in-laws lakeside home. The reason for the 2nd purchase is that pesky raccoons have figured out a way to break the feeder by hanging on it. Anyway, we believe we have come up with a solution for the raccoon problem, so hopefully this one will last longer. L8r,

The item is a typical oriole feeder. Plenty of capacity for nectar.

Quick to put together, does the job, but the bee guards don't seem to stay in place very consistently and some insects are getting inside the feeder. I can't say they are bees though.

The product is as advertised and works well.

I purchased this product because I assumed that I would no longer have the Bees all over the feeder, however this still happens so in fact its not as effective as I had hoped.

Very cheaply made, we have used these feeders for several years, they break easily when you are feeding very many birds. Will not use this item again!

I thought it was a great idea to have bee guards on the feeder. Unfortunately when the perches got any of the oriole syrup on them they stuck shut and the orioles couldn't get any food. I was going out to get them unstuck many times in a day and decided it just wasn't going to work for me. Too bad because as I said I thought it was a good idea.

Founded in the 1958, Perky-Pet started as a supplier of pet and a few bird feeder products. The original location was in downtown Denver (presently known as “LoDo”) and housed a small workforce of little more than a dozen employees. As an interesting bit of trivia, Coors Field Baseball Park is now located in part, over the original building location.

Today, after almost fifty years and more than 100 employees later, Perky-Pet has developed into the leading supplier of Wild Bird Feeders and Accessories. From these years of experience, Perky-Pet is regarded as the leader in many areas.

In addition, Perky-Pet is concerned with the ultimate consumer of its products: WILD BIRDS! With this aim in mind Perky-Pet prides itself on being a:

WILD BIRD CITIZEN-In 1998, hurricane Mitch smashed into the Caribbean effectively flattening all natural hummingbird food sources. Working with a Conservation Center, Perky-Pet donated and air-shipped in over 40 large capacity hummingbird feeders and instant nectar to the devastated area. This provided a food source to thousands of hummingbirds, until their natural food supply could recover.

LOOKING AHEAD-Perky-Pet is developing the latest trends in feeders and accessories. Namely, the combining of garden art with the functional aspect of bird feeding. Finishes, materials, colors and designs will continue to change and Perky-Pet will lead the way in providing these products which will embody these desired aesthetics and functionality. With such brands as Colibri® and BirdScapes™, birding enthusiasts can look forward to a long line of exciting and innovative birding products. In addition, Perky-Pet will provide any and all resources to its customers to insure joint success at the product level.
