House Finches with Finch eye disease.  😞 I observed first one yesterday and another today.  The feeders are down and are being sterilized.  Can anyone else share experience or advice for managing & future avoidance?

1.  How long should I wait before I can put the feeders back up?  

2.  I have been cleaning them once a month with dish soap and a 10% bleach solution.  Should I do it more frequently?

3.  Any other suggestions?

Accept that you're not going to keep birds from getting it.  There are many other vectors for this disease besides your feeders.  Wash them regularly, let 'em dry, and put them back out; that's all you can do.
