The very best way
to keep the squirrels, raccoons, rats, and other wildlife,
out of your bird feeder, is to use safflower seed, do not
mix, use straight safflower, it works 95 % of the time. After
a few days, you will see only birds. Continue using only
safflower seed, you will love the results.
For squirrels it tastes extremely bitter_
The wild birds love it,ie
Cardinals,chickadees,rhens,etc. Did you know that the wild
birds that we feed do not have taste buds?
(I personally like squirrels).
they Sturdy ?
Oh yes, very sturdy. Again I live in
after 8 years I have never had my bird
to the ground due to storms or winds
up to 40 – 50
miles an hour. Not to say that a
hurricane would’t sweep them down the street.
Needless to say, at that point I would’t be
worrying about the bird feeders falling down.
& Care of your Bird Feeder & Bird Baths
As with any bird feeder that is exposed to
the elements, over time they can get a bit messy.
clean your bird feeder just take a sponge and wipe it clean
with mild liquid soap.
Some people even take a paper
towel and Windex and wipe it clean.
There is no need
to take your bird feeder from it’s resting place.
