The feeder’s patented seed ventilation system circulates air throughout the seed. Dismantling it is a simple process. The feeder holds up to 3 quarts of seed.

You can dismantle the Squirrel Buster feeder in three steps. First, you must lift the lid. To do this, twist the top counterclockwise until it stops.

Squirrel Buster Standard
If you have a Squirrel Buster bird feeder, you are probably wondering how to dismantle it. This feeder has an innovative design that helps keep squirrels and other pests away from the seeds. The feeder is made of chew proof RoxResin material and comes with a patented seed ventilation system that keeps seeds fresher and attracts more wild birds. You can easily clean the feeder by hand, using extension hooks.
Squirrels and other large birds can’t get into the seeds, but this feeder has a negative grip tube that prevents them from grabbing onto the wire hanger and hanging down alongside it. It also has an opening for fresh air, which attracts more birds to feed on it. The feeder is made from rust-proof and waterproof Remarkable RoxResin material, and the color is UV stabilized and blended into the material.
Squirrel Buster Classic
To disassemble the Squirrel Buster Classic feeder, you will first have to unscrew the lid. Gently twist the top part of the lid off. You must be gentle and not twist the lid too far because it is permanently secured to the steel wire. Next, pull the lid off the feeder, making sure that the feeder is level. Then, you can reattach the lid.
Before you attempt to remove the cover, you need to ensure that the silver nut on the underside of the feeder is still in place. If this is not the case, you can unlatch the lid. You can also unfasten the bottom of the feeder by unscrewing the two screws located at the top of the cover. To remove the top, lift the lid and lift the feeder tube out of the shroud.
Cleaning a squirrel buster bird feeder
If you want to make sure your Squirrel Buster bird feeder remains in good condition, you should thoroughly clean it on a regular basis. Depending on which model you have, cleaning the feeder can be as simple as using a bleach and water solution. The best way to disinfect the feeder is to leave it out in direct sunlight for at least 15 minutes. Leaving it out in direct sunlight will break down any lingering chemicals, allowing it to attract healthier birds.
The Squirrel Buster bird feeder is easy to clean thanks to the divided tray and padded perches. A bonus feature is the Cardinal Ring, which prevents the squirrel from grasping the wire hanger and hanging themselves from it. The perch position is also adjustable. You can also remove the perch completely if you want to discourage large birds from using the feeder. Then, rinse the feeder thoroughly and allow it to dry before filling it with seed.
