The giant raccoon apparently did too..."
Love the feeders. They work perfectly. The squirrels gave up on them long ago. The giant raccoon apparently did too, since he's never been back once I changed the position of that rope so
he could no longer use his foot to hold on. Your feeders are truly squirrel proof, raccoon proof but perhaps, not bear proof...but haven't tested that one yet. They are holding up wonderfully, look brand new and am very happy.

...and our feed consumption has been cut in half."
To finally solve the problem, we purchased a RollerFeeder. It was
entertaining at the beginning to watch the squirrels fall off. In fact, one of our children suggested to locate a barrel with piranhas
underneath the feeder to solve the problem once and for all. But that was not necessary, since the squirrels are smart: They learned quickly
that the RollerFeeder was beyond their reach. The RollerFeeders eliminated squirrel problems and our feed consumption has been cut in

Greetings! Our birds are quite happy with the RollerFeeder. We get lots of
chickadees, titmice, white-breasted nuthatches, wrens, sparrows and some cardinals and a rare crossbill and grosbeak. We also have lots of
finches. They go primarily to the niger seed feeder. Bigger birds like the mourning doves and blue jays have to pick up the seeds dropped on

"...very little spillage"
This will be my second roller feeder.
It took a little while for the birds to start using it but there is very little spillage so I spend a lot less money on seed.
It is well worth the price, Thank you.

"I watch as the squirrels merely look at your feeder (with what I can only assume is with disdain)...."
After years of
squirrels defeating all of my previously purchased bird feeders, I recently bought your product.
I sit and watch as squirrels go sliding off of your product. In fact, recently I watch as the squirrels merely look at your feeder (with what I can only assume is with disdain) and don’t even attempt to steal the food inside. I would recommend your product to anyone. Congratulations on a great product. FYI,
the last “squirrel proof” feeder I bought lasted for about a month.
Thanks, Kevin - Little Rock Arkansas
"...So the entertainments isn't over yet"
I've just received your suet feeder - most of my birds discovered and accepted it in less than an hour, so I'm delighted. One of the squirrels I battle daily was totally perplexed after falling, and it was great entertainment watching him try to figure out what to do next. He hasn't been back, but there are at least two more in the neighborhood that come to my deck to
try and pig out, so the entertainments isn't over yet.
I'm also terribly impressed with the quality of construction of the feeder and wanted to ask if you'd consider creating a Bluebird feeder that would allow me to feed suet and mealworms within a similar type of protected environment. There are plenty of feeders on the market, but yours is truly a work of art and engineering
Thanks, Anne - Marietta Georgia
...we can really say it is "squirrel
Having recently purchased one of your "Squirrel Proof"
feeders, we are thrilled that we can really say it is "squirrel proof". Thanks a million for your ingenious design. Now that problem is solved do you make a feeder that will
accommodate small seeds for the birds. If you do we will definitely be interested in purchasing another one of your excellent feeders. Be sure and tell your workers "A job well done".

of 1, recently purchased 2nd rollerfeeder)
Hi, the RF2 Suet Feeder arrived about an hour ago, and already the hairy and downy and titmice are enjoying the suet inside. I make my own cakes, a combination of peanut butter, oats, cornmeal, crisco, ( a recipe I found in Birds and Blooms), and the squirrels were devouring it, so the roller feeder should save me a lot of money!
Thanks for sending promptly, now I have two regular roller feeders and the suet feeder, a nice set!
pesky squirrel has been trying his best..."
Shortly after I sent you that message about the birds not using the feeder I noticed some purple finches on the feeder and that's all it took for the other song birds to join
in. Now I have Tufted Titmouse, Gold finch, Red Breasted Nuthatch, Black Capped Chickadee coming to the feeder
regularly. That pesky squirrel has been trying his best to get at the sunflower seeds and I get a good laugh every time he gets thrown to the ground
. I plan on putting the second roller feeder on my back deck and eliminate the wasteful tube style thistle and sunflower seed
feeder. The bird feeding tips were very helpful and I learned some new things about attracting song birds.

Rollerfeeder: I am very happy with my Rollerfeeder. The cardinals and smaller birds
use it, and the Raccoons and Squirrels can't. It is the only feeder (I have tried so many) that really works.

- Mechanicsville, MD
a reader made notice of my reference to "greedy squirrels" in
last week’s column and said she had found a 100 percent squirrel-proof
feeder that she gave to her son for his birthday.
She said the feeder has been in place since September and not one squirrel
has mastered it. It’s the RollerFeeder Bird Feeder patented
squirrel-proof bird feeder. Information is available on line at
rollerfeeder.com. I checked it out and it looks effective, but the price
is a lot higher than your normal everyday bird feeder. If it really works
– and my reader swears it does – it might be worth it.
"I did a lot of
research before I ordered. Your feeder made the most sense. It’s a genius design."
bought your red squirrel proof feeder - and I'm delighted. Finally a feeder that really works on all squirrels. It's fantastic. I cannot find anywhere on the web a red squirrel proof SUET feeder.......how 'bout coming up with one? If anyone can, you can! And let me know when you do - I'll be your first customer.

"I am enjoying the birds
without having the anxiety of worrying about the squirrels"
my patience has been rewarded. The birds have discovered the RollerFeeder
and the news spread quickly. I have feathered friends visiting the feeder
all throughout the day. The squirrels have given up, and I am enjoying the
birds without having the anxiety of worrying about the squirrels getting
into the feeder. I could not be happier with the product and the service
you have provided, thank you so very much.

"...Cardinal feeder and it works just like you
Just wanted to drop a little note to let you how much I love my new
rollerfeeder. It’s perfect. I ordered the RF2 Cardinal feeder and it works just like you advertised. I have mine mounted in the center of an old wooden A frame that once held a swing. The squirrels tried for the first couple of days to access the feeder but quickly gave up. It didn’t take the cardinals long to figure out how to land on the feeder. I have referred your website to a couple of my friends. Thanks again for such a great product.

been 100% effective..."
I ordered your feeder back in April. I was really excited about the concept but was skeptical given the fact that all other feeders I have tried were defeated by squirrels and raccoons we have. Well now in September here I have to say your feeder is incredible it has been 100% effective in keeping the squirrels off. Numerous squirrels have
tried it and failed and after a while our “local” bunch got the picture to just stay away but every now and then new ones come and try to get on the feeder only to find themselves on the ground. Your feeder is so well built too it’s a total quality piece of equipment from the construction of the housing to the
copper tips on the sides a really nice job. I also love the fact it is a safe way to deter squirrels and we had our chickadees on the feeder within several hours of putting it up. Within several days nearly all our regular birds were using the feeder and accustomed to it.
I wanted to thank you on a great product it is so rare today to come across something like this that is a quality well-built product.

"I am not wasting bird food falling to the ground"
Our little birds are really getting the "hang" of the new
Roller feeders, and the squirrels lost interest after one day. A significant benefit of your design is that I am not wasting bird food falling to the ground.
Shelled sunflower seed is about $28.00 per 20 lbs.; so your design would seem to pay for itself over the next six months.

guess that our feed costs have dropped by more than 90%. The squirrels
had been literally "eating us out of house and home."
Considering the cost of feed and the RollerFeeder, this feeder paid for
itself in the first summer. Moreover, because the seed spillage has been
reduced enormously, we don't have a weed patch below it. Tom

"Now, no problem
whatsoever with the squirrels
...same with the grackles."
RF, We received our RollerFeeder II almost two weeks ago.
It's a winner! We couldn't keep the squirrels and grackles out of
our first feeder. Now, no problem whatsoever with the squirrels,
they have had no luck in getting on the feeder. Also, same with
the grackles. The Cassin's Finch really took to the feeder, it's
our prevalent bird at this time. They really go for the Black Oil
Sunflower Seed. The RollerFeeder is well designed and crafted with
quality materials. We were impressed with the way it was packed
for shipping, it arrived in perfect shape with the unexpected bonus of a
filling of the sunflower seed. We look forward to the continuing
pleasure of seeing the birds enjoy this excellent feeder.

I am amazed that the squirrels apparently just gave up. They quickly stopped trying. I would have expected them to bring in cutting torches or explosives.
To date, I have seen the following birds feeding on the rollerfeeder.
cardinal, chickadee, house finch, goldfinch, slate-colored junco
white-breasted nuthatch, house sparrow, white-throated sparrow
tufted titmouse, downy woodpecker, red-bellied woodpecker
The red-bellied woodpecker is rather large for the feeder, but seems to have no trouble with it. He usually shows up on the feeder several times a day.

a heads up... ours with accessory is totally effective against the
most incredibly persistent red squirrel I've ever seen. He'll hang
for minutes trying to get in after figuring out how to not get
thrown off. The gray squirrels had given up LONG ago. And the fun
of watching the little guys getting thrown off is just too much--
especially when you can see how mad they get and jump right back
up the tree to try again.

"so far...tufted titmice,
chickadees & cardinals!"
Hello, I wanted to write and tell you how much my
family is enjoying your wonderful bird feeder. I searched and
searched online for a truly squirrel proof feeder and then I found your
site. Reading all of the testimonials was what made me order, so I
would like to add mine to the list!
We were so excited about its
arrival that we actually sat and stared at it hanging in our tree for
over 30 minutes, even though were supposed to be somewhere. We
didn't want to miss the highly anticipated squirrel antics! Well,
nothing happened and it continued that way for almost 4-5 days - then
the birds found it. (So, be patient) We live in the panhandle of
Florida and so far we have had tufted titmice, chickadees and cardinals!
As for squirrels.....like your
other customers, we are sort of disappointed because they gave up!! And
they gave up very quickly! We laughed and called to each other to
watch when they did attempt anything but they stopped in 2 days.
Now they don't even go near it.
Your feeder is so well designed, so
attractive and works so well that I recommend it 110%. Thank you
for giving us bird lovers such a gift :)

small birds, titmice, chickadees, nuthatches..."
husband and I are really enjoying both our handsome rollerfeeders, which
we just installed. One feeder is on the crab apple tree, which is the tree
most frequented by our friendly, but determined, grey squirrels. I
have seen as many as eight in the yard.
we have our small birds (titmice, chickadees, nuthatches) flitting from
feeder to feeder. I have hung one rollerfeeder off the crab apple
tree, and the other is hung from one our huge pines. I will be
ordering more, once I discuss your product with my siblings, who also
might be interested. So, thank you once again. It is so nice
to have the little birds back. The squirrels scour the ground for a
morsel, and sometimes climb the limbs to attack the feeders, to no
avail. The squirrels do not seem to be hurt, especially since
they used to fall off the other feeders, once they had had their fill.
This time, the birds win. What a great invention.

does beat the squirrels. I have a hunch this will pay for itself

"Those rude big birds, well they're just perching nearby"
for creating such a great bird feeding product. I received my
roller feeder in just two days, just as you promised.
roller feeder is now installed with the following results.
The finches are happy eating from their new table. Mr. &
Mrs. Cardinal have stopped by and I'm sure they will be back to enjoy
the sunflower seeds. The sparrows don't seem to have a taste for
the sunflower hearts and thistle seed. Those rude big birds, well they're just perching nearby, trying to figure out why they
can't enjoy the song bird feast of seeds. Squirrels...I only have
one in the neighborhood, but he hasn't come by to visit yet.
The roller feeder is a thing of bird feeding
beauty. Design features and product construction is more than
worth, what at first seemed to be an overpriced bird feeder, but now I'm
looking forward to many years of enjoyment, without all those unwanted seed wasting non-singing birds.
Thanks Gene from Macomb, Michigan
"...the feeder looks like
an airport most of the time...with the squirrels and grackles out of the
way we figure the feeder will have paid for itself in a short time"
been back now about five days. During
that time, there've been a couple of squirrels around on the ground, but
we haven't seen a one on the feeder.
We think that while were away, they learned that they couldn't
beat it, so they pick up whatever winds up on the ground.
And, the feeder looks like an airport most of the time -- all
kinds of birds using it, including a couple of cardinals.
We have a few grackles. I've
seen them trying to use the feeder, but they have to keep their wings
going to stay on it, and they simply loose interest.
That's fine with us, because we wanted to get rid of them as well
as the squirrels. We have
all six weights in the bottom. That
seems to work well for us. I think it was as you said, that the birds
have to learn a new feeder, but once learned, they flock to it.
the squirrels and grackles out of the way, we figure the feeder will
have paid for itself in a short time.
wife and I are very impressed with the feeder -- so ingenious.
We were wondering if you had any problem getting a patent on it.
We know that some squirrel-deterrent feeders have spring-loaded
perches that keep squirrels off -- somewhat of a similar idea to yours,
but certainly not exactly.
We're glad we ran into your design!!

"...laughing out loud
watching the squirrels & their acrobats!"
squirrels are a riot to watch. We had 8 of them the other
day, one of which was a black one. The gray squirrels try
jumping on the feeder along with other methods but so far they haven't
figured out how to feed from them. The black squirrel won't take
the leap. My husband and I were literally laughing out loud
watching the squirrels and their acrobats!

The Rollerfeeder II is wonderful.
Everything you say on your web site is true: squirrels cannot feed from
it or damage it, but the squirrels are not hurt in any way. It is so
sturdy and well-made, has no upkeep other than washing (as do all
feeders) and it is environmentally friendly and low cost (no batteries).
We used to have platform feeders of varying
kinds, but first the squirrels became a problem, then the raccoons, and
finally the deer. So I am anxious to see if the cardinals like the
see-through feeder. If they don't, it's back to square one, unless you come up with

must admit I am disappointed in my five squirrels."
have owned your Roller Feeder for two weeks now and I must admit I am
disappointed in my five squirrels. I have the Roller Feeder
hanging from a rope that goes from my deck to a tree. It
is at least 10 feet off the ground.
The very first morning I was lucky enough to see
a squirrel take a flying leap onto the feeder. Just as you
described, the squirrel spun around and fell to the ground. Then
he walked across the rope and climbed down the long hanger.
Well, he just slid down the hanger to the side of the feeder and just
kept going right to the ground.
The squirrels have spent hours sitting on the
rope above the feeder, and on the ground, trying to figure out how to
get to the bird seed. They have given up. The
squirrels are really smart. It is amazing to watch them try to outwit
the feeder and then spend hours and hours thinking of different ways
to get to the seed.
My wife just loves the feeder and having the
small birds around. Your Roller Feeder really is squirrel
proof. Thanks for a great product. Pete

appears the RollerFeeder is bear proof as well"
a RollerFeeder for my father in law last June. He was delighted
that no squirrels were able to figure out a way around it.
Thought you might like to know that it appears
the RollerFeeder is "bear proof" as well. Dad wrote
that he looked out his window the other day only to find a bear trying
to get into the feeder. I guess quite a struggle ensued. The
bear was unsuccessful at stealing any seed but managed to bend the
feeder hanger as a final "I'll show you"!

feeder won- - great invention"
: Happy New Year!! Well, let me tell you. The new rf
is great. We both loved it. She does not have a tree to
hang it from, so she is planning on making a tee to hang it from.
As for me, I love it, and I wished I had waited for it. What a
wonderful job you did. It's such a wonderful creation. I
just kept admiring it. I could have it in my tree by now.
Let me tell you a little story. Today I had the opportunity to
witness with my own eyes a squirrel flip off my (original) roller
feeder a good number of times. He was pretty determined and so
was the feeder. The feeder won--great invention, M!! This
is the first time since I hung it that I witnessed this. I had
such a good laugh--better than TV. You do wonderful work. I
have finches, titmice, chickadees as visitors on my rf.

have spent countless dollars on feeders that could
achieve what this feeder does"
took my Chickadee's only three days to find the new feeder. The
squirrels found it first and got dumped every time! They gave up faster
than I wanted them to because it made my day to see a squirrel proof bird feeder that actually
worked! The House Finch have also found it but there is not the
usual flocking because more than three on the perch weight in down
and nearly closes off the feeding ports. I have spent countless dollars on
feeders that could not achieve what this feeder does plus it's so pretty. It's
an absolute ingenious invention and wish every serious bird watcher had
one. Many thanks!!!

It took only one day for the birds to find it and they seem to love

I got the feeder
on Tues. and we put it up that night. On wed. morning our first guest
was of course the squirrel. He tried 7 times and couldn't do it.
He hasn't been

out haven't been able to eat off the ground either.
I'm so glad.
I haven't seen the birds find it yet, but I wasn't home a lot

day I noticed the titmouse back and eating from the feeder! I was very

is truly squirrel proof!"
meant to get back to you a few weeks ago with a report from here in West
Virginia on the RollerFeeder. It really does the job on the squirrels,
dumps them out into space immediately. We have at least three of the
little buggers (we call them fairy diddles) (red
squirrels) trying to figure out a way
to get at the seeds in the feeder, but to no avail. I think they have
just about given up, but once in a while one of them will take a shot at
it. This is the first feeder that I have ever seen that actually works.
It is truly squirrel proof! The Fox squirrels don't try to get on it. I
believe that they don't care for the way that it's mounted; they don't
seem to want to try to climb down that thin wire. Oh yes, the big Jays
have tried the RollerFeeder but they get dumped too.
Right now we are
getting lots of Finches, mostly Purple but occasionally the Golden Finch
will show up. The gold seem to prefer the thistle feeder which is near
the RollerFeeder (except for two Hummingbird feeder, these are the only
feeders I am using) but they have always gone for thistle as opposed to
black oil seed We have many titmice (titmouses?) at the feeder.
I wish you well
with your great invention. If you have a potential customer who wants a
reference from an owner, have them email me.

would love for you to use my comment... As I was watching the finches on
the roller feeder I was thinking of all the times I had birds empty my
platform feeder in just a couple of hours by knocking all of the seed to
the ground. That problem has been solved through the use of your feeder.
Pretty soon I'll have one hanging from every tree.
Thanks again and I hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday.

just plain gave up"
I live on the ground floor of an apartment house, my "yard" is an eight-foot-wide
concrete patio surrounded with a four-foot fence crowded by evergreens
that are at least six feet high. Consequently, squirrels can side-jump
onto a bird feeder no matter where I put it, and access by side-jumping is
where almost all "squirrel-proof" feeders fail. Consequently, I
had two choices: either watch all my birdfeed be almost instantly devoured
by squirrels or give up feeding the birds altogether. Then I discovered
the RollerFeeder. Despite the small space in which I had to place it (I
built a simple frame of copper tubing to support it), it quickly became
clear to the squirrels and to myself that it was going to single-handedly
turn the situation around. In fact, the squirrels found it so baffling
that they did something I've never seen them do before -- they just plain
gave up. I can't think of a tougher test for a squirrel-proof feeder than
the confines of this patio, and as far as I'm concerned, the RollerFeeder

feeder", both of which hold more than the RF and need to be filled
at least every other day, usually every day. The Roller Feeder,
on the other hand, needs a refill about once a week!
The ONLY seed going out of it is going into the beaks of chickadees,
house finches, gold finches, white- AND rose-breasted nuthatches.
Now I don't mind a few sparrows surviving the winter at my feeding
station, but they were draining the hopper feeder in a matter of hours!
Unacceptable! Guess what? They don't touch the Roller Feeder! I
don't know why - they are small enough to perch on it and I know
they like the seed I put in it. But they stay away! Maybe they don't
like the birch log design!
BTW, the squirrels don't even come to the feeding station anymore
"It has performed
I have one of the original
Roller Feeders. It has performed flawlessly. I have several other feeders in
a wooded area suspended by wire. The squirrels have figured out to
"walk the tightrope" and get to my feeders. The Roller Feeder is in a
tree where the wire originates. Squirrels do not even bother with it anymore. The best part about the
Roller Feeder is the types of birds it attracts.The nut hatches, small
finches, chickadees are the most popular.
I recently had a
raccoon in my backyard. Three times a night my motiondetector is activated by the
raccoon. It is more acrobatic than thesquirrels. It has tried
several times, from various hanging positions, to get at the Roller Feeder but
it is too large to get at the holes. The roller action keeps the food
safe and uneaten!!!

"The squirrels have given up"
I am writing to say how well
your rollerfeeder is working for us. We are very pleased with the
performance and how it has kept the squirrels from getting into our bird
seed. In fact, the squirrels have given up and don't even try
climbing up to the feeder anymore. We have many small birds in our back
yard, especially chickadees who are eating a lot of seed, however,
this winter we will not be feeding the squirrels.

"I love our Rollerfeeder"
My name is Brenda and I live in St. Louis,
Missouri where both squirrels and birds are easily found in the yard
every day. Our yard faces the woods and so we hung several bird
feeders off the edge of the roof overlapping the deck right outside our
living room window so we could watch birds eat. Well, it didn't
take long for the squirrels to take over and gobble up all the bird food
every day. Not to mention that the squirrels made a terrible mess
spilling seeds onto the deck, climbed the screen on the window and drove
our dog nuts trying to get the squirrels through the window. We
tried everything to keep the squirrels out of the bird feeders. I
fed the squirrels in the yard hoping to keep them off the deck...but no
luck. Until we got the Rollerfeeder! We have had it since
December 1998 and have never seen a squirrel be able to get in it or get
food out of it. No crows or larger birds either. Many times
we have seen squirrels trying to get in the Rollerfeeder, but every time
they even get close...whoosh... they fall right off. The feeder
just spins around making the squirrel fall off. They learn quick
too and give up and don't bother with it any more. The chickadees
love it and so do many other birds. I don't know the names of all the birds that visit the Rollerfeeder, but it is the smaller
birds that get "bullied" by the larger birds on regular
feeders. The larger birds can't get food out of the Rollerfeeder
because they are too heavy and it rolls them off just at the squirrels.
I love our Rollerfeeder and would definitely recommend it to anyone.
