No problem with feeder

I have had this feeder for 3 years and have several red squirrels in the garden
The feeders ar suspended on tree branches by bungee cords and the squirrels weight makes them bounce. I love watching their antics as the birds are unfazed by ir and keep on feeding By Jad, on 15 Jun 2017

Good but advice needed

I do not have a squirrel problem and am very happy with this product. I found a greenfinch on the feeder yesterday that wasn't feeding just sitting there feathers puffed out and it looked unwell I was able to approach it within a couple of feet before it flew away which is very unusual. I suspect Trichomonosis. Every time the feeder is empty (am feeding sunflower hearts) I dismantle it and spray to the point of run off the inside and outside together with base and perches etc with Dettol solution and leave it for 10 minutes or so for the disinfectant to do its work. I then thoroughly wash it in very hot soapy water and then rinse thoroughly in cold water. The parts are then dried reassembled and it is refilled. Is there something in my hygiene regime that needs to change or am I doing the right thing in order to help prevent the spread of this wicked and cruel disease. There are others with bird feeders in my locality but I don't know their hygiene regime in relation to the feeders. Be grateful for your advice

RSPB response: Thank you for your question regarding cleaning. You are using exactly the right technique in cleaning your feeders this way. By keeping your feeders clean it will help prevent the spread of diseases such as Trichomonosis. The key factor to remember is that if you find sick or dead birds, to take down your feeders, give them a good clean and then hold fire on feeding for a few weeks (so do not refill and re-site them straightaway), at least until you can no longer see any sick birds.

look positive

I have read reviews on this and other feeders; let's think, and look, positively about "the squirrel problem"; for instance, someone who experiences this problem, and yet writes a 'down' review about it (using a feeder which RSPB specifically say is not suitable for gardens which have squirrels), is misleading and unfair; also squirrels and birds in general cannot and should NOT be blamed for diseases in anyone's garden, which they may well bring in from other gardens....feeders, if kept clean should be sufficient.
