Frequently Asked Questions:
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.
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.

It's too late to return, but I'm taking mine down. Hummingbirds don't seem to like it much anyway.

METAL BASE TOXIC to HUMMINGBIRDS
By picky reader - December 16, 2013
As a veterinarian, I would advise against purchasing this product. The metal pan base appears to be galvanized, which means it is coated with a layer of zinc to prevent rusting. If so, that zinc will leach into the water and is toxic to birds. I returned mine for this reason. Feeders containing copper should also be avoided, since copper toxicity is also problem for birds. Also avoid hummingbird food containing red dye, which is associated with birth defects. (Instead just use a 1:4 mixture of sugar to unsoftened water; which is the same thing, without the harmful dye). Since you probably don't intend to harm the birds you are trying to help, I would advise choosing different products. If you have already purchased these products, I would advise returning them or just throwing them away. You won't see the dead hummingbirds, new ones will keep coming to the feeder, but you may be killing them off without realizing it. Even if they put a clear coating over the metal, it wouldn't last long enough to prevent the hazard. It's just a bad material for what would appear to otherwise be a nice feeder.

I have 3 of these, 1 in the front, 1 in the back and 1 in rotation.
My recipe: 1 parts sugar to 4 parts water, for this feeder:
- 1 1/4 cups sugar
- 5 cups water
Place in a pot, bring to a boil. Let it cool completely and then fill the jar and place outside.
Change every 7 to 10 days. Do not let it go rank.

The bottom (metal) portion comes completely apart so that you can clean it thoroughly. I've been reading a lot of stories lately about hummingbirds dying from mold in feeders, so I was specifically looking for this feature. Also, the glass is very clear and doesn't cloud up after a few fillings. The mouth of the jar is wide enough to be able to get in and clean it as well. The only negative that I can see is that hummingbirds are attracted to red and there's very little red on this feeder. I just put a couple of drops of red food coloring into my liquid, and those little guys show right up.
