The Squirrel Buster Bird Feeder

The Squirrel Buster Bird Feeder is a squirrel proof bird feeder that stops squirrels from feasting on your bird food before the birds get a chance. The durable Squirrel Buster is weight-activated meaning small birds will be able to feed easily, and larger birds and squirrels will cause the feeding ports to close, denying access to the food. 



The Squirrel Buster Bird Feeder

When you put out your bird feeder, you imagined a garden filled with blue tits, robins, goldfinches and great spotted woodpeckers, but all you see are squirrels, crows and pigeons. The Brome Squirrel Buster bird feeder is the best bird feeder for small birds and the perfect way to stop squirrels and piegons from eating all the bird seed.


Stop greedy squirrels from eating more than their share. The weight activated feeding mechanism closes when a squirrel lands to stop squirrels eating you bird feed.


You spend money on bird food, but squirrels empty the bird feeder before the small birds get to eat. Save wild bird food for the garden birds with your Squirrel Buster.


The Squirrel Buster's adjustable weight activated mechanism will stop bigger birds like pigeons, crows and starlings from scaring small birds from the bird feeders.

"We've seen lots of birds we have not seen before"

"I bought this lovely feeder as a present for my husband who was getting very frustrated with the squirrels and green parrots demolising the bird feeders. It's working very well and we've seen lots of birds we've not seen before."

The Anti Squirrel Bird Feeder





negative grip tube

Prevents squirrels from holding on with their hind legs and defeating the closing mechanism.

hanging hook

Enclosed by the negative grip tube, the hook makes it impossible for squirrels to remove the feeder.

Weight adjusted

No tools required. The spring mechanism controls how much weight the feeder will support, meaning you can control which birds use the bird feeder.

metal shroud

The chew-proof metal shroud covers the food when the squirrel or pigeon lands.


Humidity and hot air escape through the vents in the top of the feeder, keeping bird food fresh.

chew-proof seed tray

100% chew-proof, waterproof and UV stabilised, the seed tray stands up to gnawing squirrels.


No tools required to dismantle the Squirrel Buster bird feeder for thorough cleaning.

Clearance Guidelines

Anyone who has sat and watched squirrels try to get into a bird feeder knows how clever and persistent they can be. 

Hang your Brome Squirrel Buster from a branch, feeding, pole or bracket. Ensure there is at least 18" (47cm) of clearance on all sides. The squirrel (or large bird)'s weigh activates the bird feeder, so you need to ensure he can't stand on a fence or branch and reach over to feast on your bird food.

Do It Yourself Squirrel Proof Feeder

There are so many squirrel proof bird feeders on the market, and you might even be tempted to create your own do it yourself squirrel proof feeder. Squirrels are ingenious, persistent and opportunistic and can work out how to get to the bird feed in most feeders (or will cheerfully gnaw them to bits or pull them down and take them to pieces). 

The Brome Squirrel Buster Bird Feeder is chew proof, impossible to take apart and the mechanism is activated wherever the squirrel lands, making it the best way to stop squirrels eating all your bird food.


Lifetime Warranty

Brome Squirrel Buster feeders are covered by a lifetime manufacturer's guarantee against manufacturing and material faults. Call the Lifetime Careline or request replacement parts online.

The Squirrel Proof Feeder That Saves You Money!


We all know that we can encourage more birds to our gardens with a premium bird food blend. But it feels frustrating when we invest in wheat free bird food, only for the squirrels to eat it all! When you save a bird feeder for small birds to use and deter squirrels and bigger birds, you spend less on food and need to fill the feeder less regularly.


It is so disheartening when squirrels take down, chew through or dismantle your bird feeder. The Squirrel Buster is a chew-proof bird feeder that has been built to last. Squirrels can't dismantle the feeder because the hook is protected by the negative grip tube, and they can't chew through the base or sides of the feeder either.

Buy once and buy well with the Squirrel Buster.

 Create a Wildlife Friendly Garden

What could be better than sharing your garden with wildlife? There has been a countrywide decline in the population of our most loved garden birds. The decline has been caused both by urbanisation and changes in agricultural practices. 80% of the UK is farmland, so these changes have led to a critical loss of habitats and natural sources of food.

Our two biggest wildlife charities (the BTO and the RSPB) both recommend feeding the birds all year round in order to give them the best chance of survival, but winter and spring are key times to ensure your feeders are topped up.

When you offer birds a safe place to feed, you increase their chances of survival. Dedicated squirrel feeders offer a great way to cater to squirrels without allowing them to monopolise all the feeding stations in your garden. Squirrels and larger birds are opportunistic feeders and often take more than their share. 

A Squirrel Buster gives little birds a dedicated supply of food and gives them a better chance of survival.

British Wildlife to Care for in Your Garden


You'll spot a dunnock hopping on the ground near a hedge, hoovering up seeds. Dunnocks are in decline because their woodland habitats are being destroyed. They will visit your bird feeder for suet, mealworms and chopped peanuts.


A disease called trichomoniasis has led to a decline in greenfinch numbers in the UK. Greenfinches are very social. They form in flocks and will happily use a bird feeder and enjoy eating sunflower hearts, hemp seeds and safflower.


House sparrows are in decline because the insects they eat are also in decline. We can encourage house sparrows to our bird feeders with protein rich foods, such as mealworms, peanuts and suet. Wildflowers will provide house sparrows with insects to eat and ivy and hawthorn are the ideal habitats.


We don't see as many song thrushes these days because their nesting spaces and natural food sources have reduced. To encourage them into your garden, don't use slug pellets (snails and slugs make up a big part of their diet). A song thrush will take suet and sunflower hearts from the ground.
