Bees & Ants
You will need some form of ant traps or ant guard. Usually these are small dishes or cups of water you can hang above the feeder which act as a barrier, cutting off the antís access to the feeder itself. Ants will make a steady line up to your feeder without an ant trap since feeding port holes are easily accessible to an ant. Many humming bird nectar feeders come with built in ant guards but they are also available as an add-on accessory for existing feeders.
Bees prefer yellow. Now maybe there is some scientific backup to this, we do not know. Maybe itís total hooey and only occurring in our backyards. The bees in our backyard bother our yellow hummingbird nectar feeders far more than our feeders which are red. They are also more likely to be a bother at a gravity feeder since the sweet nectar is right up to the feeding port and can be easily accessed by a bee, however, there are all sorts of bee guards for this which can be added to feeders.
