These seeds are an excellent value for the serious birder. I contacted a Scotts representative who informed me that the use of pesticides to protect these seeds from insects was discontinued in 2008 and treated seeds were recalled as part of the legal proceedings. No pesticides are currently used in the processing of these seeds. In addition, the removal of every bit of debris from the seeds is an expensive process which is passed on to the consumer as an increase in the price. If economy is a major issue for you, I suggest you use the "wire screen" type feeder rather than the "port hole" feeder type. The birds will peck out most of the stems and leaves themselves and discard it and any remaining debris can be easily dumped from the feeder each time you fill it as necessary. The debris is not an issue for me since it consists of small twigs and leaves which are very light and do not significantly detract from the weight of the seeds themselves.

This bag of bird seed contains way too many sticks and chunks of wood! I can only use it in a platform feeder, because the debris blocks the feeder holes and tubes, so even shaking the feeders won't get the seed free - talk about frustrated birds - and a waste of money. Buy something else - you will pay more for seed that is guaranteed to be 99% clean, but it will save you money in the long run - you won't be paying for sticks and chunks.

Scotts Miracle-Gro pleads plead *guilty* to coating their Morning Song bird seed with insecticides Storcide II. This insecticide comes with a warning label: "Toxic to birds, toxic to wildlife." Please read this link:[...]

Having purchased this product for the last year I am furious.

This was my first bulk Sunflower seed purchase. I have a platform feeder outside a second floor bedroom window. It took a while before I found the best mix for my backyard in NC. I found that using sunflower seeds exclusively limited the number and types of birds coming to the feeder. Many of the commercially available mixes were also unpopular, but I was successful in supplementing some of the finch or songbird mixes with (cleaned up) sunflower seeds from this brand. Picking out the debris is a real pain - I doubt anyone else would do it. Personally, since I was going through the effort and expense, the amount of debris with the seed bothered me. It isn't much by volume (perhaps 5%), but it makes the seed look really dirty. There are too many empty hulls, tiny rocks, and twigs in the mix. I thought I was getting a great deal, but I would pay more for a quality product. By the end of this 40lb bag, I couldn't wait to get rid of it. If you don't think the debris won't bother you, that's fine. But if your plan is to use this seed alone, you could do so much better. Best of luck.

Scotts pled guilty this Tuesday (3-13-12) to charges that the company illegally put insecticides in its "Morning Song" and "Country Pride" brands of bird seed. That's right: The company knowingly coated products intended for birds to eat with substances toxic to birds and wildlife.

According to court records, in 2008, Scotts distributed 73 million packages of bird seed coated with the insecticides Storcide II, containing the active ingredient chlorpyrifos, and and Actellic 5E, containing the active ingredient pirimiphos-methyl, intended to keep insects from destroying the seed.

The company continued to produce and market the insecticide-coated seeds despite being alerted to toxicity dangers by a Scotts staff chemist and ornithologist.

I just bought the 50 lb. bag on here for like $19 and now it's $56? I was going to reorder but that's insane!!! Especially when they have the 25 lb. bag for about 1/3 of that. What's going on with these changing prices???

I previous used higher-priced product purchased from the orange big box store, and it had far more sticks and stems than this, and I had to haul it to my car and heft it home.

My birds go through seed very quickly. I have a couple of the spherical sunflower seed feeders to encourage grasping song birds, as well as some I fill with a mix of sunflower & saffron seeds. I've found these two seeds really draw the colorful birds like cardinals, tanagers, buntings, jays, etc. As long as the feeders are designed for grasping and not perching, you can keep the big bullies (grackles, starlings, doves) from eating all the goodies.

Highly recommend this seed.

Can't comment on any of the seeds sold here, just joining the discussion on seed prices in general. Nothing I found on the internet seems like a good price currently, Amazon included. So I bought 20# of black oil sunflower seed at a local Walmart for $17 (3 weeks ago). Seemed a decent price. Too bad they don't offer the larger size bags anymore. Soon ran out of that seed, so went to my local feed store 2 days ago, and got the same type of seed at $26 for 40# (before sales tax). Best price I've found anywhere, plus this way I support my local economy. So you might check around and see if you have any animal feed stores in your area.
