REMEMBER THE BIRDS NEED LOTS OF FRESH CLEAN WATER AND THE HUMMINGBIRDS NEED FRESH NECTAR IN THEIR FEEDERS.
Now that summer is here it is time to clean your feeders and birdbaths. Clean your feeders with a 10% solution of bleach or white vinegar and water. Let the soak for 10 minutes to loosen any stuck on seed. We have Feeder Brushes in stock to help clean the tubes of your tube feeders. Rinse under clear running water and let dry. Fill your feeders with new seed and the birds will flock to your feeders. Clean the bird bath the same way and use a stiff brush to get all that grime off the bath. We sell the brushes that are great for doing just that. Remember clean feeders with fresh seed and water will keep your birds happy and coming back to your yard all day long.
The Hummingbirds are here and visiting many of our feeders. It is important to keep the nectar fresh for those little guys. We have plenty of hummer sugar in stock and we also have the "Ready to Use" mixture which is ready to pour right into your feeder. Keep your feeders up until the end of October as they will still stop by on their way south.
