Anyone who has used feeders for a while is aware of the antics of squirrels. They are acrobatic, persistent and quite clever when they set their minds on getting your seeds. I am witness to the 100% effectiveness of the brome 1015 squirrel buster at keeping those pesky creatures out, and it achieves this while causing absolutely no harm to the squirrels.
The Brome Squirrel Buster classic 1015 uses a patented and ingenious defense mechanism technology to keep out squirrels.
What the squirrel buster classic does for you
It works quite simply. The seed is surrounded by a wire shroud. Openings in the wire shroud align with seed feeder ports and provide birds access to the seeds. When the squirrel climbs on, it’s weight (even that of a little squirrel) pulls the shrouder down, barricading the seeds. The squirrel has no way in and is not harmed in any way. Quite impressive!
Perching and clinging: The seed ports have perches for perching birds, and the wire shroud provides good surfaces for clinging birds as well, such as nuthatches and woodpeckers. You can also remove the perches to discourage large birds such as dives or grackles.
Ventilation: The transparent seed tubes trap solar energy. The seed tube ventilation system permits humidity and warm air to escape through water proof vents at the top, and this is replaced by fresh air from the bottom. This system, ensure that the seeds remain fresh.
Cleaning is easy: You can clean without using any tools. The squirrel buster classic can be dismantled and assembled within seconds. You must be gentle while cleaning, though; I have broken the spring twice in my feeder.
Dimensions: 20″H (not including hanger) x 4″ diameter. It has a good capacity of 1.7 quarts, 2.55 lbs; there are four ports.
Placement: Because it is squirrel proof, you can put it up almost anywhere that you and the birds find convenient. It can be hung from a hook.

The Brome classic 1015 Squirrel Buster is truly a classic and simple to use bird feeding product. The weight sensitive perch is fully equipped to detect heavier squirrel weights and effectively barricades squirrels from the feeding ports……..
A minor set back some of my friends have faced involves the long cable that holds the feeder. Depending on where the product is hung, the cable can be too long that it can cause the feeder to hang into bushes. However, this can be adjusted. Overall, the Brome 1015 Squirrel Buster Classic is an excellent product, and it’s much higher quality than many products out there. It’s also about half the price of the newest model from its upgrade the Buster 1024 (which I have covered in another article), and it performs just as well.
This is truly is an essential tool to add to your garden or backyard. You can relax knowing that your seeds and birds are safe.
