Good hygiene essential for wild bird feeders

February is the toughest month for our garden birds. The weakest have already perished and now, with food shortages, even strong and fit birds struggle to survive.

Poor garden feeder hygiene and accumulated droppings can also contribute to the spread of serious diseases among wild birds, causing previously rare illnesses to become epidemics in some populations.

An innovative new range of bird feeders is set to revolutionise hygiene in UK gardens and help prevent garden birds being affected by bacterial infections.

With backing from the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO), garden health specialists Westland has premium range of Gardman Wild Bird Care products containing antimicrobial technology.

Gardman’s Black Steel and Heavy Duty bird feeders contain inbuilt Biomaster surface protection. Biomaster inhibits the growth and build u-p of harmful microbes and helps prevent transmission of bacteria such as salmonella, trichomonosis, aspergillosis, escherichia coli and coliform, which have all been linked to poor hygiene at bird feeders.

Biomaster works 24/7 and is effective for the lifetime of the product.

Gardman Black Steel and Heavy Duty bird feeders are also easily disassembled for regular cleaning.
