Hummingbird Feeder Tips

For hummingbird feeders you always have the problem of ants. Ants are incredibly annoying when they get in the feeder and all over it and they bite you when you change it. It' just a mess. So here are some tips for anti ant hummer feeders. Number one, just hang it high. Number two, use ant moats. You can get them at several different stores. All it is is a moat that keeps the ants away. Once they get in the water, they just float like a dead duck. ( Forgive the cruel analogy that is related to birds.) Number three, is to use vaseline or other slick substances that the ants slip on. But I wouldn't use it unless you have to because some substances that people use might harm other birds. Hope these tips helped! And as always have a nice day.

I know they are not a hummingbirds but they are birds and that's all that matters right?
