Helpful Hints from joeeze: Birdbath management


Nothing too big, nothing too small, that's our philosophy here.

For the two or three of you out there who have birdbaths, here's what you should know, courtesy of yesterday's Washington Post Home section "Tip of the Week": "Water in birdbaths should be changed at least twice a week to prevent mosquitos from breeding there. Patrol the yard for standing water that will promote mosquito infestations. Children's toys, wading pools, buckets, wheelbarrows, tires and undrained pots all offer a place for larvae to develop."

OK then, I'm outa here on yard patrol.

There goes the day.

I'd like to challenge the mosquitos try and infest my garden, which happens to be in the English countryside.

Thanks for the tips Joe- check the gutters too for low spots.

We attract a lot of birds to the birdbath especially on hot days and of course we pride ourselves on having the "cleanest" birds around. :-)))
