Out of all the feeders we've tested in our own gardens, the Best-1 Hummingbird Feeder is our favorite, and it's made in the USA! Unlike many other feeders on the market, we've found it to be bee and wasp proof and exceptionally easy to clean and refill. It has only two parts, making it very easy to clean and refill. Just unscrew the base for cleaning. (Find cleaning tips below). The quart-size (32 ounce) bottle can be set on a table or any flat surface to fill. Over the years, Best-1 has perfected this feeder. It has a perch ring running around the outside of the feeder, so the hummingbirds can perch or hover to feed. This hummingbird feeder also has a scale on the side to help you calculate how many hummingbirds are feeding at your hummingbird feeder.

Helpful Tips

Make your own hummingbird nectar
Hummingbirds must know the difference between raw sugar and refined sugar. When we switched from using refined sugar to using Turbinado Cane Sugar (Sugar In The Raw) the results were amazing. To make your own nectar that hummingbirds will love, simply put 3-4 cups of warmed purified water in a pan or bowl and mix in a 1/2 cup sugar. Allow to cool and serve. 

Cleaning the feeder
To avoid spread of diseases, your feeders should be cleaned at least once a week. You can use a diluted solution of bleach or vinegar as a cleaning agent. Place two tablespoons of either liquid in the empty hummingbird feeder and fill it with water. Let the feeder sit upright for 20 minutes or more until all mold has disappeared. The base can be unscrewed from the feeder and allowed to soak in a bowl of the same cleaning solution. Be sure to rinse feeder and base thoroughly with clean water before refilling with nectar.

Placement of feeders
Hummingbirds can be aggressive towards each other, so it's best to space two or more hummingbird feeders around your property. Place the feeders out of view of each other - maybe one in the back yard and one in the front. It makes it more difficult for any one hummingbird to patrol all the feeders. Experiment in your own yard to get your own results. If the hummingbirds aren't feeding in one location, move the feeder elsewhere. Hummingbird feeders placed in the shade are not as attractive to bees as feeders placed in the full sun.

No Hummingbirds?
There are several reason why hummingbirds might not feed from a hummingbird feeder.

  • Hummingbirds in our gardens didn't like the nectar we made with processed white sugar. So we switched to organic evaporated cane sugar and they love it! See recipe above. 
  • If the feeder was cleaned with a strong, chemical-based detergent and not rinsed thoroughly this might deter the hummingbirds.
  • During warmer weather the nectar in a feeder should be changed every 4 to 5 days or it can sour. Because the hummers usually won't empty a full, large feeder in a few days time, it's best just to fill a feeder about one-third to halfway. This ensures the nectar will be fresh, and your hummingbirds will love you for it!
Adding red bows and ribbons to the base of your feeder, or somewhere close, will catch their attention. Or add red accents around the garden: garden flags, hang feeders from colorful hooks, wind spinners, stained glass wind chimes, red hanging pots, paint a big rock or planter BRIGHT RED and add a "Welcome Hummingbirds" message to it!
