Review and comment August 28, 2012
really like this type of feeder and it has worked great this year. I would like to know if there is a bee guard for this model? Now that the weather is changing, the bees are a problem.

RESPONSE FROM PERKY-PET
AUGUST 31, 2012
Thank you for your feedback regarding the Perky-Pet® 16 oz. Clear Plastic Bottle (model 186140R). We are glad to hear that you and the hummingbirds are enjoying the Garden Song® Clear Plastic Hummingbird Feeder (model 216). This particular feeder does not have bee guards.
We offer a couple different feeders that feature bee guards like the Perky-Pet® Pinch-Waist Glass Feeder (model 203CP) and the Garden Song® Plastic Pinch Waist Hummingbird (model FF84).
You may also want to try hanging an extra feeder with a stronger 1:2 nectar solution and position it slightly away from the other feeders. The bees will prefer this to the regular nectar but that formulation is too strong for the birds. The bees will all concentrate on the feeder with the stronger nectar and leave the other feeders alone.
We hope this tip is helpful, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973).
