I get it, you like hummingbirds. If you feed them, here are few tips:
* Don't buy the mix with the red dye. You can make your own, and it's
better for them. Mix 1 cup of granulated sugar to 4 cups of water.
Boil for 10 minutes and let cool. Pour into the feeder. No dye needed. They will come to it, I promise.
* Empty and refill the feeder every three or four days. The syrup goes sour quickly in the heat of summer.
* Clean the feeder every time you refill it. A couple of drops of
vinegar and hot water will do the trick. Make sure to rinse the feeder
thoroughly. I use a bottle brush to clean mine.
* Use an ant
trap to help keep the insects out. It's the red thing at the top of the
feeder in the picture. It's basically a cup with water in it to deter
crawlers. There's really nothing, that I know of, that you can do about
bees and wasps except the watch the battle play out.
little bit of maintenance to attract hummingbirds to your yard, but
necessary so your good intentions don't cause them any harm.
