    *This is not my situation.* I’m trying to help someone else. Anyone remember the discussions we had over at yuku about how to clean sticky trap residue off birds? They know now not to use it.

    I’m pretty sure it’s mineral oil.

    Tammy, remember the yuku site but don’t have a clue about this – what is stick trap residue?? Must be something I have never encountered or know about. In my opinion if a bird has any kind of sticky residue from something are using, it definitely should not be used. I am actually very nervous when I put axle grease on my pole to keep things from crawling up (especially ants) the pole – watch very carefully that no birds would get into this.

    I think mineral oil might work. I use cooking oil to get stickiness from pine trees off my hands. Also use it on sticky price tags stuck on things…..takes the stick residue off with little effort. Good luck.
