You Bet Your Garden

Selective feeding is better for the birds-and you!

Listen to the full show:

Could it possibly be bad to feed your birds? On this week’s You Bet Your Garden, host Mike McGrath reveals how to use well-timed feedings to get those birds to eat your bad bugs! Plus: how to get your landscape certified as a healthy habitat for wildlife, and your fabulous phone calls!

Question of the Week:

When should I stop putting suet in my feeders? I have filled them up all winter and have had lots of wanted visitors; and the squirrels have (mostly) been defeated by a greased pole! But should I still be filling the feeders now that it’s getting warmer? The birds are still stopping by. Should I gradually stop? Any advice?
