WBU Seed Blends

Some Food for Thought

Let’s face it; there are a lot of ways your bird feeding dollars can be wasted.

Squirrels are sure to put a dent in your budget as they devour everything in sight, not to mention the mourning doves and pigeons that can dominate your feeders to the exclusion of the birds you really want to attract.

Feeding a poor quality blend of bird seed from the grocery, hardware or big box store store can also be a waste of money as most of the undesirable filler seeds just end up rotting on the ground under the bird feeder. If the ingredient list shows milo, sorghum, wheat, canary seed, corn, or mysterious unspecified "grain products," it its likely NOT a good blend. Most of those ingredients are really just “fillers” and are not foods that attract the kinds of birds you will enjoy. 

Instead, look for LOTS of sunflower (which may come in the familiar black shell or in a hulled form) and peanuts (either halved, chopped or peanut hearts). White millet or safflower are typical secondary ingredients.

We deal with these scenarios all the time and we have the right bird foods, feeders and expert advice that will help you get the biggest bang for your bird feeding buck!

Our quality bird foods target the specific birds you want to attract and discourage the birds you don’t. We have exclusionary feeders and accessories that can prevent those domineering squirrels, rodents, doves, pigeons and other nuisance critters from eating you out of house and home.

You will not find a better value in bird seed than our quality WBU Seed Blends. With our regionally selected formulas, fresh quality ingredients and no filler seeds, you can rest assured that you will not be wasting any of your money on worthless, uneaten seed.

We will also share lots of expert advice about setting up and operating your bird feeding area in the most efficient and economical ways possible.

Give it some thought… if you are ready to take action, we are here to help you get more birds for your bird feeding buck!
