How do I attract hummingbirds to my feeder?

Choose the Right Feeder:  Opt for a feeder with bright colors, such as red or orange, to catch their attention. Select one with multiple feeding ports to accommodate multiple birds.

Location:  Place the feeder in a visible and easily accessible location, preferably near flowers or foliage where hummingbirds naturally feed. Ensure it's in a quiet area with minimal disturbance

Put Fresh Nectar in the Feeder:  Mix 4 parts water with 1 part white granulated sugar. Do not use honey, artificial sweeteners, or red food coloring. To avoid deterioration, replace nectar every 3-5 days, especially in hot conditions.

Maintain Cleanliness:  Regularly clean the feeder with hot water and a mild detergent to remove mold, bacteria, and residue. Rinse thoroughly before refilling with fresh nectar.

Add Perches:  Place nearby perches or branches where hummingbirds can rest and observe the feeder before feeding. They prefer to survey the area for safety before approaching the feeder.

Plant Hummingbird-Friendly Flowers:   A garden with nectar-rich flowers like trumpet vine, salvia, bee balm, and fuchsia will attract hummingbirds naturally. These flowers offer nourishment and beauty to your yard.

Be Patient:  It may take time for hummingbirds to discover and become accustomed to the feeder. Be patient and consistent with providing fresh nectar and maintaining cleanliness to encourage their return.
