Tips for Hummingbird Feeder Care

During extreme temperatures, clean feeders more frequently to prevent mold and spoilage. Use warm water for cleaning and refill with fresh nectar every 2-3 days.

In hot weather, place feeders in shaded areas to prevent nectar from fermenting quickly. Consider using ant moats to deter insects and keep feeders clean.

During cold spells, check feeders for freezing nectar. Replace frozen nectar with fresh solution to ensure hummingbirds have access to food. Insulate feeders if possible.

Monitor feeders closely during extreme temperatures to ensure they are in good condition. Repair any cracks or leaks promptly to prevent nectar from spoiling or attracting pests.

Hummingbirds need consistent food sources, especially during extreme temperatures. Keep multiple feeders available to accommodate increased feeding activity during heatwaves or cold snaps.

Regular maintenance is key to keeping hummingbirds healthy during extreme temperatures. Stay vigilant in cleaning, refilling, and monitoring feeders to support these tiny, resilient birds.
