Hummingbird/Nectar Feeder Care/Cleaning
Your hummingbird feeders need to be cleaned, and nectar changed every 3-4 days. You may need to do this more often in hotter weather. If you see black spots inside your feeder take it down and clean it immediately. Sugar water is a great habitat for mold and bacteria, so take care to keep your hummingbird nectar feeders clean! Back spots in the feeder can be mold, so you will need to scrub it out with a good bottle brush. If you can not reach it inside the reservoir with a bottle brush you may use a light bleach solution with water and shake the feeder to remove the mold. Rinse very well! Then rinse again. Rinse and clean your hummingbird nectar feeder each time you change the food.
- Use of bleach may cause the color on the feeder's plastic parts to fade. We do not use bleach on our feeders that are colored, only on the clear reservoir. Instead, warm soapy water is used on red parts of nectar feeders.
- As an alternative to bleach, we have heard of bird watchers using grains of uncooked rice BBs and even sand as tiny abrasive "scrubbers." Using a funnel, put 1/4 c. rice or BBs into the feeder and fill it halfway with warm water. Put your finger over the opening and shake . We have not tried this, but if you do not wish to use bleach, it is an alternative.
- A cotton swab is helpful in removing dirt or mold stuck in feeder ports.
