Q. What criteria should I use when selecting a hummingbird feeder?
A. Make sure it is one that will be easy to clean and fill, especially since you will need to clean the feeder every few days. If you are worried about bees and wasps or ants invading the feeder, purchase a hummingbird feeder with bee guards, such as the Perky-Pet model #203CP or ant guards, Perky-Pet model #242.
Q. How do I clean my hummingbird feeders?
A. Hummingbird feeders need to be cleaned every 1-2 weeks. Use hot water and a bottle brush, along with mild soap; be sure to rinse thoroughly. The Perky-Pet cleaning mop is specifically designed for the purpose of cleaning hummingbird feeders, and is very convenient to use. This cleaning mop can also be used on seed feeders and oriole feeders for those small, tight spaces that are difficult to reach.
Q. What is the importance of providing water for hummingbirds?
A. Hummingbirds need fresh, clean water just as much as they need nectar. Hummingbirds stay healthy by using water not just for drinking, but also bathing, cleaning their feathers and to remove parasites. Waterers are better options than bird baths because they provide hummingbirds with fresh, clean water that prevents dirt and debris from contaminating it. In hotter climates or seasons, providing water for hummingbirds makes it easy for them to have access to a water source and retain their energy.

Fantastic - to a pointEverything about this feeder is great - except... I can't stop leaks from happening between the lower and upper portions of the base. Have followed call instructions (printed and video) several times, but just can't get a complete seal between the two parts (a very tiny gap on one side). Once I hang the feeder, movement (wind, etc.) causes dripping. Suggestions?

Amazon ReviewTrue, the base leaked like crazy from the split between the top and bottom parts. I was about to either return the feeder, or permanently seal the base with silicone sealer. Then I figured it out -- so I offer the following advice: A. Before filling with nectar mix, first test the feeder with plain water (which I did, and found that the water leaked out in about 10 seconds). This avoids losing a batch of nectar by not understanding how the feeder works. B. To test with water, and later fill with nectar, read the instructions (they're not too clear on the tag, but the video helps): - Screw base together until snug (the halves do not form a watertight seal, and this is okay). - Screw container into base until snug. - Push container down into the base seal (may already be in down position) to close ports, and prevent base leakage when filling. - Fill only half way [until hummingbirds have discovered it] & refrigerate the rest. - Screw top cap onto container TIGHTLY [most important step; it must be airtight]. - Pull container up from base to open ports. The liquid will start to fill the base, and stops when the vacuum prevents further flow.

Once you get the hang of it, this is a great feederIt took me spilling the nectar a few times but once I learned how the push-pull action worked, I came to love this feeder. Unfortunately, I let it freeze and it cracked but I'm going to buy a couple more.
