Alongside the importance of regularly feeding the birds that use your bird table, maintaining its appearance and cleanliness is also vital. As winter ends and spring arrives you will soon notice an influx of wildlife coming back into your garden and those birds that you have fed previously will expect the same again.
Here at Birdfeeders 4 Less we have a number of high quality bird tables for you to install in your garden along with all the advice you may need to ensure regular maintenance is undertaken.
The wooden, hanging and budget range of bird tables we have in stock should always be kept clean after installation to avoid any potential harm to the birds that use them. Any food that is left over should be removed swiftly before it begins to accumulate, as dirty tables may become dangerous as they can harbour bacteria left by sick birds.
To combat the threat of spreading disease, each time you go out to put more food on the table for the birds, simply brush off any leftovers. To reduce the risk even further, scrub the top of the table with a mild disinfectant solution every few weeks and increase the regularity if you have noticed any sick birds using your table.
The weather conditions that your bird table can be faced with during winter can often leave it looking a little worse for wear. Maintenance tasks should include checking all screws, tightening loose ones and generally making sure that your table is a safe place for birds to come and feed.
