Perky-Pet® AntGuard®

Keep those pesky ants away from your hummingbird feeders! This ant guard helps ensure the birds (and not the ants) will enjoy the fresh nectar. The Perky-Pet® AntGuard® effectively repels ants from feeders and easily mounts in-line with hanging bird feeders. AntGuard® begins working immediately and should stop all sweet-eating ant activity within 24 hours under optimal conditions.

How It Works

Ants are attracted to the sweet-tasting nectar inside your feeders. As ants forage for nectar and make their way down the hanging hook to the feeder, they enter the AntGuard. Inside is a disc containing a powerful ant repellent, permethrin, which drives them away. The active ingredient has been proven safe around birds, pets, and people when used as directed. Like the naturally derived pyrethrin, which originates from chrysanthemums and was the inspiration for this substance, it should be kept away from ponds, streams or other bodies of water due to aquatic organism risk.

Fast Acting and Long Lasting

AntGuard® begins working immediately to drive away sweet-eating ants. In optimal conditions, all ant activity should stop within 24 hours. The permethrin disc is encased in a durable plastic dome, keeping it inaccessible to feeding birds, while also protecting it from rain so it lasts longer. Under normal conditions, AntGuard will provide a full season of ant control.

Easy to Mount

For your convenience, the Perky-Pet® AntGuard® easily mounts in-line with hanging hummingbird feeders and oriole feeder. To install AntGuard, extend the lower baffle of the dome. Then attach AntGuard below your hanging hook and above your hummingbird feeder. Note, you should not hang it on feeders weighing more than 10 lb.
