April shower means it's time for Feeder Fresh

April showers brings May flowers and soggy seed unless you pull out your bottle of Feeder Fresh. It is a descant that you add to the seed when you fill the feeder. It absorbs excess water, is safe for birds, and made from non-toxic absorbent sand. Feeder Fresh keeps the seed in the feeder dry, keeps molds from forming.
.
Once the Feeder Fresh absorbs its own weight in water it will discontinue absorbing, and be identical to the silica grit that birds normally ingest. It's also made in the USA.

I use Feeder Fresh a lot in wet weather. It keeps my feeders free of mold which makes it easier for me to maintain clean healthy feeders.
