If you want to attract more birds to your yard, there’s no need to have bird feeders full of seed everywhere. Instead, eliminate all chemical insecticides from your backyard. According to the National Wildlife Federation, our feathered friends love to hunt and eat insects because it’s their primary source of protein. When a yard is treated to eliminate insects, it’s a less attractive environment for birds to visit. Turn your yard into a wildlife habitat and you’ll not only go green, but you’ll save the money you would have spent on costly (and unnecessary) spray treatments.
