Hello from Arkansas. I am new to the forum and hoping someone can help me. Almost a week ago we discovered there was a Salmonella outbreak at our backyard feeders. Lost several pine siskins. After doing some reading we immediately took down all of our feeders. I have learned how to clean the feeders (but will probably just replace instead). I also read it’s important to clean the ground of fecal matter. But HOW do I effectively clean bird poop from the ground and grass below? I’ve read this bacteria can live as long as 9 months in soil. I desperately want to clean our yard as well as possible. Not only for my wild birds but also for my two small children who play in these areas of the yard. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
