GARDEN GATE: Episode 238-Avian Flu and cleaning feeders (Apr 8, 2022)

Cleaning your feeders is very important. Dirty feeders can spread disease and also don’t operate properly when they’re gummed up with old seed. With the prevalence of the avian flu and conjunctivitis in Ontario, it’s especially important to clean feeders regularly. Cleaning feeders with hot water and a small amount of bleach twice a month or when you refill is recommended. We have variety of brushes to help you get in to the nooks and crannies and we can also make recommendations on types of feeders that are easy to clean.
