No-Mess Blend DP

No-Mess Blend Diced Peanuts is 100% edible with diced peanuts.

No shells. No mess. 100% edible. Our No-Mess Blends are great near flower beds, patios and decks.

Our unique No-Mess Blends feature seeds that have had their shells removed so only the meat of the seed is left. No hulls on the seeds makes for tidier feeding, since there’s no debris on the ground to clean up. Pound for pound, our No-Mess Blends offer the best value because you do not pay for uneaten seed waste. The birds eat everything.

Mealworms

Mealworms are the larvae of the beetle Tenebrio molitor. Birds such as chickadees, bluebirds, wrens and woodpeckers will eat mealworms, if they are placed in a feeder accessible to the birds. Because mealworms can crawl, it is best to place them in a feeder where they cannot crawl out.

Mealworms can be kept for weeks at 40 – 50° F. For longer storage they should be placed in bran flakes, wheat bran or corn meal in a container having air holes. A potato or apple slice should be kept in the container for the worms to use as a moisture source.

Nuts & Berries Suet

Dimensions: 4-7/8″ x 4-7/8″ x 1-1/3″

With our Nuts & Berries Suet, it’s easy to provide your birds an extra energy boost. Loaded with peanuts, almonds, pecans and cranberries, Nuts & Berries is designed to attract suet- and fruit-eating birds like woodpeckers, chickadees, titmice, nuthatches, wrens and more. All of our suets are rendered and refined to remove impurities that cause spoilage.

Avoid the mess of melted suet. Offer No-melt suet dough when seasonal temperatures are above 95º F and Suet when temperatures are below 95ºF. All of our Suet and No-melt dough is rendered and refined to remove impurities that cause spoilage. No-melt dough is designed to withstand temperatures up to 130° F.

Offering suet at a backyard feeding station is a great way to attract a wide variety of insect-eating birds. Birds that eat suet will still find natural food sources such as insects, insect eggs and grubs to get a well-rounded diet.

Since suet can be messy to put into the cages, try freezing the suet before putting it in the feeder. This will make the cake contract, allowing it to fit in the cage more easily and reduce waste.

EcoTough Classic Bird Feeder

Two perches
Capacity: 3 qts
Dimensions: 9½” x 11¾” x 13¼”

Imagine a wood-free bird feeder that actually looks like wood! Our EcoTough® Classic won’t crack, fade or rot and has a lifetime guarantee. The Classic has curved ends so you can see birds feeding on both sides at the same time. Perch drains allow seed to drop out of the feeder for ground-feeding birds to eat, and angled perches let empty seed hulls be blown away by the wind. The removable screen bottom is treated with EcoClean® Antimicrobial Product Protection, providing 24/7 product protection.

The EcoTough Classic Feeder can be hung, but it does not come with the hanging wire to do so. We recommend that this feeder be pole mounted due to its weight (7 lbs unfilled) and size. If a tree were to hold this feeder, it would have to be a very sturdy tree.

EcoTough feeders and houses are environmentally friendly, high quality products that are made from recycled plastic milk jugs. These feeders and houses prevent used milk jugs from making their way into our landfills.

(Bird food not included.)

EcoClean Dinner Bell Feeder

The dome also provides birds and food protection from the elements. Backed with a lifetime guarantee, the Dinner Bell is easy to fill and hang, and its tray is top rack, dishwasher safe.

Available exclusively at Wild Birds Unlimited, our EcoClean® feeders and accessories are the most advanced bird feeding products available on the market. EcoClean products feature a patented technology that inhibits the surface growth of damaging bacteria, mold and other microbes. This protection won’t wash or wear away, and it uses environmentally friendly technology.
