Those that feed birds know that it's important to keep not only your feeders clean, but the ground area around the feeders as well. The ground beneath bird feeders can become contaminated with bird droppings and moldy birdseed over time, creating a habitat for unwanted parasites and harmful bacteria.
Seed & Hull Digester is a spray, made up of all natural enzymes. It works to remove harmful contaminates under bird feeders by quickly breaking down the hulls and other organic material, speeding up the decomposing process and digesting them down into basic components that can be absorbed into the environment.
The directions are simple: Hook the bottle up to a water hose, turn it on and spray for approximately 30 seconds under your feeders. The directions recommended using this spray about once every two weeks.
The company claims that this product will not harm the integrity of the birdseed itself, nor harm the birds or other animals.
Seed & Hull Digester comes in a 32 oz bottle. CareFree Enzymes Co. doesn't sell directly from their website so I ordered mine from Wild Class Nature Center for $12.99 plus shipping. I'm figuring one bottle will last me most of the summer. I'll probably continue to rake under the feeders when needed, but now that I have this, I'll feel a little more at ease about preventing bird diseases.
