Bird Feeders: Clean Bi-Weekly to Prevent Transferring Diseases

Clean your bird feeders every two weeks.

Birds Canada has released an important announcement regarding bird safety.

Due to a shortage of conifer seeds this season, Pine Siskins have been seen at feeders in unusually high numbers, and unfortunately, an outbreak of salmonella has been reported.

You can help prevent the transfer of salmonella to sensitive bird species by ensuring your bird feeder is cleaned on a bi-weekly basis. Here are a list of best practices from Birds Canada:

  • Every two weeks, scrub and soak feeders with 10% chlorine bleach solution. Rinse feeders thoroughly and allow to completely dry before refilling. Only use feeders that are easy to clean.
  • Clean the ground under feeders. Regularly rake and discard bird food and droppings under feeders as they can become moldy or spoiled.
  • Move your feeders around. Regularly change your feeder placement to limit the concentration of droppings and seed wastes.
  • Temporarily remove feeders. Take down your feeders for two weeks if a sick bird appears at your feeder or if an outbreak has been reported close to you.
  • Consider using feeders that do not allow the birds to stand in their food. Droppings are more likely to come into contact with food on open trays and platform feeders.
  • Always discard any seed that has become wet. Harmful molds can grow on wet seeds.
