Do not be concerned too much if bees are attracted to your feeders. Our bees are suffering a decline so we are glad to see them access nectar along with the hummingbirds. If you are allergic to bee stings then keep your distance. Be safe.

Ant Problem 2.0

It's early in the year and many of us still do not have an ant problem but we usually do later in the season. So here is some advise shared with us.
One of our friends had the following suggestion. It appears that ants will eat corn meal set out near your feeders. The corn meal expands inside the ant and... no more ants where the feeders are. If you have other advise we would love to hear about it.

Perspective Shot

Why are these the right sized feeders?
The above photo shows the size of most hummingbirds. They are small.

These mini hummingbird feeders contain just the right amount of nectar so they can finish it before it goes stale and moldy. Even if you inadvertently leave a feeder out a long time and it gets moldy it will not have moldy nectar as it will be empty, thus no hummers will be harmed.

Clean feeders - Healthy hummers

Bug Control

It's getting busy. Hummingbirds also eat a great amount of soft bodied bugs like mosquitos. We are glad they are here to help with bug control.
