Q: I understand bluebirds have more than one brood during Georgia summers. Should I remove the nesting materials from our bluebird house after each brood? 

A: Yes, you should clean old nesting material out of your birdhouse. Be sure to wash off hardened material fused to the walls. Use hot soapy water or a bleach solution if needed.
