Where do you store seed?

Filed under: Bird Care,Seasonal,Store News,Uncategorized,Wild birds — admin @ 10:00 am

The new seed harvest of the year is on our shelves now. All this wonderful, nutritious fresh food that has been growing outdoors without pesticides comes with occasional extras that you may not appreciate. So what to do to avoid seed moths and weevils in your house? FREEZE. I routinely freeze what I take home, at least overnight. I never store it in the refrigerator where the moisture will permit bacteria or fungus to contaminate this excellent bird food. My mother always said the bugs chose the best corn in the field and she had no problem when there was an occasional worm.
