Brome Squirrel Buster Nut Feeder


Entice a wide variety of birds that love shelled peanuts and thwart squirrels with the Brome Squirrel Buster Nut Feeder. We hang this on an arm right in front of a window in the shop, and watch birds come to it all day long. Say NO to squirrels! A No Mess No Waste option for clinging birds, with a tail prop for woodpeckers.


The Brome Squirrel Buster Nut Feeder is currently hanging outside our windows at the shop, where it completely stops squirrels. This is a new design rolled in 2021. From the minute we hung the feeder outside, it has enjoyed non-stop squirrel-free action! A favorite of Downy, Hairy and Red-bellied Woodpeckers, it also attracts other nut loving birds such as Carolina Wrens, Titmice, Red-breasted Bluejays, White-breasted Nuthatches, and Chickadees.

A No Mess No Waste™ option for clinging birds, with a tail prop for woodpeckers.

Built to hold a generous 3/4 quarts of shelled peanuts, suet nuggets, assorted nuts and fruits. We replenish ours about every 5 days.

What makes this feeder squirrel proof? An ingenious weight sensitive metal perforated sleeve or shroud that surrounds the seed reservoir slides down over the ports when a red or gray squirrel jumps onto the feeder, making the seed inaccessible. In addition to thwarting squirrels, you can adjust the feeder to help control heavier birds (think Blue Jay or Grackle).

There are two sizes of mesh that one may use inside the box, according to the size of the nut, seed, nugget or fruit you may want to use.  The unique exterior metal shroud below the mesh serves as a tail prop and enables woodpeckers to easily access your seed. Woodpeckers use their tails as a “third leg” or prop! This feeder allows for great viewing of the entire bird.

Placement of your feeder

Hang the Brome Squirrel Buster Nut Feeder at least 18″ away from a tree trunk or window. Remember it’s the squirrel’s weight that triggers the closing mechanism. If a squirrel can reach over from a nearby foothold and avoid placing weight on the feeder, he will have access to the seed ports. Allow for at least 18″ inches of clearance around the feeder. Squirrels would then have to access the feeder from above or by jumping, and this would cause the shroud to slide down, making the seed unavailable. Perfect!
