Cleaning your Feeder
The Nature's Way patented seed tray is easily removed for quick and thorough cleanings. Feeders can be sanitized with a mild solution of unscented dish detergent and warm water. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and let dry completely before refilling. Washings can be less frequent if you give your feeder a quick cleaning every time you refill it.
Why clean feeders?
Cleaning bird feeders is an easy way to keep your backyard flock healthy and avoid spreading disease among birds. Dirty feeders allow the seed to spoil and harbor mold and bacteria. Rancid seed can attract unwanted wildlife such as mice, rats, raccoons, and insects. Spoiled seed can cause wood decay and difficulty in cleaning feeders, which may cause additional damage. Caked seed can clog feeding ports, hinges, and other parts causing it to crack, warp, or break. Feeders should be cleaned 1-2 times per month.
