Ready to Use Nectar FAQs
Q: Do hummingbirds eat anything else besides flower nectar?
A: You bet they do. In fact, nectar from flowers and feeders is only a supplement to their primary food source—insects! While hummingbirds get a lot of energy from nectar, they also need protein, especially during their breeding season. To get that, they spend much of their time eating insects and they seem to especially enjoy small bugs such as gnats, aphids, flies and midges. Another favorite: Spiders!
Q: How often should I change my hummingbird nectar?
A: Hummingbird nectar is greatly affected by air temperature and intense sunlight. During hot weather, hummingbird nectar can quickly ferment and become inedible to your hummingbirds.
Use our Hummingbird Nectar Guide to help you get the most out of your nectar and hummingbird feeder.
You should also clean your hummingbird feeder prior to each refill. This helps to avoid bacteria and mold growth inside the feeder, reducing the spread of disease among the hummingbird population.
Q: When should I expect to see hummingbirds?
A: That question requires multiple answers. On a daily basis, you'll see more hummingbird activity during the mornings and evenings. In the morning, hummingbirds are looking for a quick energy boost after waking up. In the evening, they need to prepare for a night without any food at all.
Seasonally, expect to see your hummingbirds in the spring through the fall. Some southern locations will have hummingbirds all year long.
Hummingbird migration periods may result in a big boost of activity at your feeders while they recuperate and recharge from long flights. You can learn more about Hummingbird Migration and see where others are finding Hummingbirds right now on our Hummingbird Migration Map.
