Feed Suet All Year Long
Suet is a high-energy, pure-fat substance that supplements birds’ daily diet year-round and is particularly helpful when finding insects to eat is difficult. All of our regular suets and no-melt suets contain high-quality ingredients, providing critical fats, calories, and protein - making every trip to the feeder count. Also, Wild Birds Unlimited suet is rendered to help remove some of the impurities that can cause spoilage.
Suet allows you to feed the birds year round. Offer no-melt suet when seasonal temperatures are above 95º F and regular suet when temperatures are below 95ºF. No-melt suet is designed to withstand temperatures up to 130° F.
Offering suet at a backyard feeding station is one way to attract a greater diversity of insect-eating birds, including woodpeckers, nuthatches, chickadees, and wrens. Birds that eat suet will still find natural food sources, such as insects, insect eggs and larvae for a well-rounded diet.
