Feeding the wild birds is a popular American hobby, second only to gardening. That means there's a lot of bird seed lying around our homes and garages. Often that birdseed is contaminated with moths which then infest other nearby grain products--cereal, flour, cookies, pasta.
A Birdseed Moth Trap captures the moths in your home that contaminate birdseed, with a lure that attracts flour moths, meal moths, seed moths, and most other food moths. Each disposable trap will work up to three months.

We often wonder what is the best and most compassionate manner in which to communicate with our pets. And how do they communicate with each other?
Biology professor and Animal Language Institute director Con Slobodchikoff has been studying the social behavior and language of animals for 40 years, with a focus on the prairie dog. Those of us who love dogs and cats should find his discoveries enlightening.
He shares his observations on animal communication and language in his recent book Chasing Doctor Dolittle: Learning the Language of Animals, covering a wide range of mammals, including dogs, bats, apes, monkeys, hippos, hyenas, foxes, deer, lizards, bees and the prairie dogs.

When it rains outside, our birds instinctively lift their wings for a rinse, even though it is still dry inside where they are. They need the gentle rain shower and humidity for healthy feather preening and respiration.
Say goodbye to those awkward spray bottles. The Misting Bird Shower is designed to make misting your bird in the sink, tub, or shower easier. It has gentle settings along with variable flow control that you can manage with one finger.
