Hummingbird feeder bees
can be a serious problem.

Nectar is a mixture of sugar and water and what bee doesn’t love a good sugar treat?

Bees are a very important link in the natural eco system. Without them, our nectar rich flowers wouldn't be pollinated which is a very important food source for our beloved hummingbirds!

So lets keep them at the flowers rather than our feeders!

For hummingbirds, bees are more than annoying. Varieties of bees such as honeybees, yellow jackets, hornets, and wasps are a serious problem at hummingbird feeders.

Worse yet, our hummingbirds sometimes desert a feeder infested with bees.

These 2 feeders above were
personal experiences at our feeders!

We were invaded by a swarm of Honeybees!

How to Get rid of Bees
at Your Hummingbird Feeders!

1.) Avoid using leaky feeders.

2.) Use bee guards...If your feeders take them

See Our Selection of Insect Guards.

3.) Use Tray Style Feeders....
