    What grass seeds is safe for birds?

    I bought my first bird feeding station in 2016. I decided to take it off now. I haven't used it for months now. During the fall and winter I used ground bird feeders instead.

    Why are they making ground feeders using this material?

    They are now making them using a recycled plastic that is called poly lumber or similar material that if you look closely has small pieces of this plastic that easily comes off and continues to come off and ends up on the bird food which birds can easily end up eating it..... I don't get it why...

    Is this safe?

    I have been using ground bird feeders since it's rainy season. I leave them under the porch so the food won't get wet. I want to know if it's safe to store these ground feeders in non-toxic plastic bags (with no smell inside) that are specifically for foods. But after a day or so the bags smell...

    How to get rid of ant mound? Help

    It's been raining a lot recently and under the bird feeder there is a small area that has an ant mound. I raked all of the wheat straw and put new one since it's time to replace it.

    What should I use?
