Hummingbird Feeders - FAQs
Q: Do hummingbirds need a perch to drink nectar?
A: Since hummingbirds are able to hover, they typically do not need to have feeder perch. In nature, they normally feed while hovering. Even though this feeder doesn't have a perch, we've seen some hummingbirds land on its, grip the lip of its base and drink nectar.
While many of our feeders have perches, we've found that feeders without perches will somewhat discourage territorial behavior.
Q: How can I keep ants away from my hummingbird feeder?
A: Keeping bugs away from the sugary nectar inside a hummingbird feeder can be challenging. Ants can be kept at bay with one of our Ant Guard®.
The Ant Guard®, which is strong enough to hang a feeder from, uses Permethrin, a natural insect repellent.
Q: What do I need to clean this hummingbird feeder?
A: You will need water, dish soap and some sort of way to scrub the inside of the bottle. We suggest the Perky-Pet® Foam Feeder Cleaning Mop. Once you have your supplies assembled, take down your feeder, drain it and take it apart.
The base can be separated from its lid with the slightest pull on the metal lid. Now scrub all the parts gently and pay close attention to any buildups around the feeder parts. After scrubbing, rinse, reassemble and refill.
Q: When should I put this feeder away?
A: Some areas of North America will have hummingbird visitors all year long. Other areas, particularly the Northeastern and Midwestern U.S. and Canada, will only see hummingbirds in the late spring through the early fall.
We suggest you start putting out your feeders in April (for the early arrivals) and remove them by the first of October (for the late-leavers).
That's only a guideline though! If you continue to see hummingbird activity deeper into the fall, keep refilling your
