Concord, NH (PRWEB) December 15, 2005
Birdfeeders of all types decorate back yards across the country and nature lovers stock up on birdseed to help wild birds through challenging winters. However, birds can become ill if birdfeeders aren’t cleaned properly. In fact, organizations such as the National Audubon Society and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology stress the importance of cleaning feeders often to prevent bird illness. To help achieve this objective, Duncraft, a leader manufacturer and retailer of birdfeeders, has launched a new product, Feeder Fresh, that helps keep tube birdfeeders clean in true outdoor conditions.
“Tube feeders are especially difficult to clean,” says Sharon Dunn, president of Duncraft. She explained that the problem results from seed dampened by snow and rain that then forms into moldy clumps. Exposure to these clumps can cause birds to become ill. This clumping also makes cleaning the feeders more difficult.
To combat this problem, the Feeder Fresh birdfeeder cleaning solution is comprised of fine, sand-like, non-toxic granules, which are poured into the bottom of the tube feeder to absorb excess moisture. "Just as beachfront restaurants adds rice to salt shakers to keep the salt flowing, our product helps in the consistent delivery of dry, usable birdseed, " said Dunn. “Feeder Fresh makes it so much easier for the bird lover.” She noted that Feeder Fresh is not only a practical solution, but an economical one as well. The bottles cost just under $8 and each lasts for 50 tube refills.
Duncraft is a 54-year-old manufacturer of birdfeeders and related products. Feeders, gifts for bird lovers, free advice on bird feeding and an online bird guide are offered on its website at http://www.duncraft.com, and its store in Concord.
