Keep Your Bird Bath Clean

A bird bath can be just the decoration to turn your yard or garden from dull to delightful. If your bird bath is filled with scummy water and green algae, however, it is less than appealing for both you and your bird visitors. Keeping your bird bath clean is essential, but it doesn’t have to be expensive or time-consuming to maintain. You can keep your bird bath sparkling clean without the use of bleach solutions or other chemicals.

The best way to keep the green, organic scum from mucking up your bird bath is to prevent it from happening in the first place. Sometimes that’s easier said than done, but in this case it really is pretty simple. There are all-natural products available that won’t harm the birds or require constant maintenance.

Bioverse has created a special Birdbath Water Cleaner that utilizes enzymes and beneficial bacteria to prevent mineral deposits, stains and other types of organic build-up. The excess nutrients are reduced, and your bird bath problems will be a thing of the past.

For best results, you should typically start with a clean bird bath. First, empty the bird bath. Rather than use a bleach solution, which can be harmful if not thoroughly cleaned from the bird bath, try using a scrub brush (or sponge), water and some elbow grease. A couple tablespoons of vinegar with some water may also help. There are also soy-based cleaning products available that will remove stains, if desired. Mild detergent can be used, but even that can cause problems for sensitive birds, so it is best to avoid it if possible.

If you plan on keeping your sponge or scrub brush after cleaning the bird bath, be sure to soak it in lemon juice and hot water for at least 20 minutes. Then spray a disinfectant, such as Lysol onto the sponge or brush, and give it another good rinse.

Once you have thoroughly rinsed your bird bath, fill it back up and use the Bioverse Birdbath Water Cleaner. The product is a simple, small dispenser that you place in the middle of the of your bird bath. It releases its beneficial bacteria and enzymes over the course of 30 days. All you have to do is keep your bird bath filled with water and let the all-natural product do its thing. One dispenser will treat bird baths ranging from one to seven gallons of water.

In order to keep the water clean and clear, simply remove the old dispenser after 30 days and drop in a new one. It is just that simple to keep your bird bath pristine and sparkling fresh. Your feathered visitors will appreciate the clean bath, too.

Other Bioverse products include all-natural solutions to keep fountains, Koi ponds and larger water features clean and fresh. Bioverse products are eco-friendly and easy to use, and contain no chemical algaecides or other harmful chemicals. No matter what type of water feature you have from bird baths to ponds, Bioverse has an all-natural solution to keep it maintained and fresh.
