By introducing bird feeders in your garden, you encourage different birds to converge on one spot. As a result, you’ll want to keep your garden clean and safe to prevent the build up of harmful bacteria.
Drinking Water - If you have any drinking water containers (such as bird dining stations that include a water tray) we suggest cleaning them out every day if you can, as that will help keep it clean for your birds.
Feeders - Ensure your feeders are cleaned regularly, the hot and humid temperatures make the risk of disease higher so using a suitable disinfectant and cleaning brush will help.
Feeding Stations – After a while, these can be prone to bacteria build up as a result of bird muck around the feeder. Consider using a No Mess seed mix to reduce the problem and keep the ground around your feeder clean. If you move your feeder, don’t move it too far, as it’ll take a few days for the birds to get used to the move.
