Suet Feeders and Hygiene
It is important to remove any uneaten suet from feeders before it turns rancid. Most of the suet that you provide for the birds will be eaten quickly, but if there’s any left over, particularly in warmer weather, remove it and throw it away. Clean your feeders before topping them up with more suet for the birds to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria and the spread of avian diseases.
