Actually, that's a great idea if you have the refridge or freezer space. Here in New England, I only have insect problems during the hot summer months. I keep the feed outside in a metal barrel, so during the winter months, it IS frozen a good deal of the time. I have done the same with seed, and it does keep the bugs away. Even if you were to put it in a plastic container with tight fitting lid, you can still get bugs, as sometimes the eggs are already in the seed when you buy it. In the plastic container, they will eventually hatch. In the fridge or freezer, they won't.I keep my feed in a Freezer in the garage--Keeps the weavels and other bugs out. Only
take 5 gal bucket to the loft as needed. At the cost of feed now-a-days an old refrigerator would keep it cool enough.
Ours have taken up living in our old rabbit hutch So with the birds in there, all their needs are taken care of. Finally replaced the wooden door stops in the cage with nails, so now they have nowhere to live (they were staying in a hole in the doorstop). Now that they're out of the cage, lets hope they don't go trying to get in the feed barrels Although I don't think they can. Absolutely no room between the lid and the side of the can.How do other flyers keep weavels out of their feed in 100 degrees Temps as we have here in Texas---July/Aug/Sept
