I think it should be obvious that treated lumber shouldn't be used directly for 
the wood that is used to build the contact parts of birdhouses or feeders. 
Poisons are used to treat the wood. Parts used to attach the houses to poles or 
decks could probably be made from treated lumber since birds only perch on 
those parts.

Does anyone know if it's OK to use treated lumber for birdhouses?   
Someone called RAS with that question.
