Safe bird feeding

Scottsdale, AZ


So my mother and I put out one of those cute little humming bird feeders outside, and the locals seem to really enjoy it! We get humming birds and even local woodpeckers. I've learnt how to properly clean the feeder, but I have a silly question....

Do I need to clean the bucket I clean the feeder with???

I know it sounds ridiculous but I know birds carry germs and I want to make sure I keep my mother and myself doing things the most smart way we can. Plus I know that germs can carry from bird to bird, so I want to make sure I don't hurt them either!!

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
