Hummingbird Feeder Nectar Recipe


Hummingbirds feed on flower nectar and insects. If you make your own nectar, the correct solution that resembles plant nectar should be:

1 part sugar
4 parts water
Combine the water and the sugar, and bring to a slow boil for 2 minutes. Cool before pouring into the feeder. Any excess may be stored in the refrigerator for several weeks.

DO NOT USE:
Red food coloring or dye.
Artificial sweeteners which have no nutritional value.
Honey which ferments quickly and causes a deadly fungus.

Place your feeders in the shade and keep out of direct sun and wind. Be sure to clean your feeders regularly and replace the solution every week. Clean your feeders with hot water or a 10% bleach solution. Rinse thoroughly and allow to dry completely before refilling.

It is very important to change your solution more often (every 2-3 days) when the weather is hot or consistently over 60 degrees.
