Keeping Bird feeders clean

Keeping Bird feeders clean

Here are some vital steps for keeping a good cleaning routine:

  • Clean feeders fortnightly with a mild disinfectant. Always rinse and air-dry before use
  • Always wear rubber gloves when interacting with feeders, as some diseases can affect humans too
  • Don't use cleaning brushes for any other purpose
  • Move feeders to different areas of the garden to prevent a build up of droppings on the ground
  • Choose a feeder that's durable and easy to take apart and put back together, such as our Peckish 3 Port Feeder, which as a removable base for easy cleaning
  • Avoid putting feeders under garden features where birds might roost, as this will prevent contamination through droppings
