The Aspects Jewel Box Window Hummingbird Feeder Review ....see why its our favorite!
This is a review of the Aspects “Jewel Box” window hummingbird feeder, among my favorites of all hummingbird feeders. The feeder comes in a nice sturdy box which is great for storage over the winter months. It has 3 feeding ports, a raised perch that surrounds the front of the “Jewel Box” (excellent for photos and videos), 8 oz. capacity, and an ant moat which cradles the Jewel Box.
• There is a scale on the side for 2, 4, 6 or 8 oz. of nectar • The lid is hinged for easy filling and cleaning • There are “nubs” on the underside of the feeding ports that will hold the optional “Nectar Guard Tips” made by Aspects if you have issues with bees or wasps
The “Jewel Box” is easily removed for filling
The lid is hinged for easy filling and cleaning
The cover of the feeder is red which attract hummingbirds
I recommend installation with the Ant Moat because if there is a way for ants to access the nectar, THEY WILL!
DO NOT use any substitute or honey in place of sugar
DO NOT add any dye or coloring to the nectar mixture (the red feeder cover will attract the hummers)
You should clean the feeder every 3 days (5 days at the most depending on sunlight and temperature) when you replace the nectar to prevent mold and bacteria which can harm hummingbirds
You should clean the ant moat along with feeder
Use brushes and you can, if needed, use a tiny bit of dishwashing detergent but YOU MUST RINSE THOROUGHLY
The “Jewel Box” and Ant moat are completely top rack dishwasher safe You can find thorough cleaning instructions for all your humming feeders here.
TO SUM UP MY ASPECTS JEWEL BOX WINDOW HUMMINGBIRD FEEDER REVIEW:
The “Jewel Box” window hummingbird feeder by Aspects is my favorite window hummingbird feeder.
It comes with a nice sturdy box for storage through the winter months.
Comes with an ant moat to keep ants out of the feeder which can be a big problem
It is very versatile with different mounting options.
It is very easy to remove for filling and cleaning.
The option to use the Aspects “Bee Guard Tips” is great to keep bees and wasps from getting into the nectar.
raised perch elevates the hummingbirds preventing them from being
hidden by the feeder. This presents great photo and video opportunities.
Comes with a Lifetime Warranty, included with very few hummingbird feeder brands.
have used the “Jewel Box” window feeder for 5 years now and I remember
that the hummingbirds almost immediately made visits to the feeder when I
first installed it.
I have our feeder installed in front of our kitchen sink window so when my wife makes me do the dishes I can enjoy our hummers while slaving away!
hummingbirds seem to get used to our presence on the other side of the
window which presents an opportunity for great videos and photos. As you
can see, I was able to capture these great photos.
