We all have enough trouble keeping up with cleaning our own homes, but we shouldn't forget about the birds, either! According to the National Audubon Society, you should empty your birdseed feeders of old seed and hulls about once or twice a month, and then clean them by immersing them in a nine-to-one water-bleach solution. Rinse them thoroughly and then fill them with new seed before you replace them. Disinfecting them regularly will keep the feeders free of pathogens, bacteria that can cause disease in our beloved birdies!
