Q: What is the difference between sucrose, dextrose and fructose?
A: Hummingbird nectars mixed with Sucrose deliver energy quicker to hummingbirds because sucrose is digested faster by the birds. Dextrose and fructose, which are often used by other companies in their hummingbird nectar, fail to mimic the key properties of the natural flower nectar that serves as fuel for hummingbirds. Quite simply, nectar mixes based on dextrose and fructose don’t convert to energy as well as Perky-Pet’s 100% sucrose formula.
Q: How do I mix this concentrate?
A: Mix 3 parts water with one part concentrate. Here is a guide.
Q: Why are hummingbird feathers shiny?
A: Hummingbird feathers – and those of many other birds – have a quality to them that is called ‘iridescence.’ This metallic sheen is created by light reflecting off of multiple layers of air bubbles trapped on the surface of each feather. It’s very similar to the shine you see on soap bubbles or oil.
Q: How close can I get to a hummingbird?
A: Hummingbirds are very curious creatures and will investigate anything they think might hold some food. Some YouTube videos show hummingbirds enjoying nectar out of people’s hands. You can also get up-close with a hummingbird by trying one of our window-mounted hummingbird feeders.
