Salmonella is for the Birds!
We love our feathered friends! They provide hours of enjoyment and brighten our windows and yards.
For some of us, they may even become like family. Unfortunately, salmonella is a serious bird-borne
illness, and when it hits it can spread quickly killing thousands of birds nationwide.
Many people are unaware that poorly maintained bird feeders and birdbaths are suspected as the primary culprits for the spread of disease, as birds congregate at high-traffic areas and infect others. Diseases such as Salmonella spread through contaminated fecal matter from infected birds, and sadly, many die within a day or two of being infected. Every time a bird steps into communal feed it’s a potential contamination occurrence, which can then become a catastrophic disease spreading event for other birds.
The best way to protect birds from bird-borne diseases is through regular, intensive cleaning and disinfecting of your feeder(s) via a bleach solution (9 parts water to 1 part bleach is the recommended formula). It’s a rather unpleasant process, but it is necessary to protect birds. In my experience, none of the feeders I have purchased in the past make for an easy cleaning and maintenance routine.
Finally a Better Bird Feeder Designed with Birds’ Health in Mind – ClearView Deluxe!
Because of these safety concerns, I decided to make a positive difference in our world and work to
protect birds from serious illness and disease. I pulled together a qualified team to design a better bird
feeder to provide the safest feeding environment possible.
We successfully designed a clear window-mounted bird feeder with a 100% unobstructed view and 4 layers of protection for the birds.
Easy to clean and maintain with a removable tray and an integrated perch.
Keep the birds on the perch instead of jumping in the seed to eat.
Include a clean water source physically separated from the seed so it stays free of debris longer.
Antimicrobial optional - Keeps it cleaner between cleanings
