Hummingbird Food | have a problem with ants eating my food for these birds?

Posted By: junmar

I do not even live on the 3rd floor! I have the hummingbird feeder hanging from the railing. Ants are everywhere and even drown in it. So the first question is, what can I do to stop them? Second place is so harmful to the hummingbirds?

AntsThey find food, unless they take precautions. Buy a drip feeder, but that really make a difference. Some models have an integrated power ant moat that can be filled with water, no use oil as chickadees and other small birds to drink in the stands of the ants. You can make your own grave when you run the cord hang over a hole in a Spraycan cover (the use of silicone sealant or hot glue to seal the hole.) But the best defense against ants is to paint the background to within a gap with ants Tanglefoot, very sticky sold in nurseries, and install the sink side down. This is very effective against ants, does not pose a bird stuck or contaminated, and low maintenance because it keeps dirt from being compromised by rain and dust.I no longer recommend the use of tapes or of the adhesive around the castor oil pads or cables suspended. There is a possibility of 's too much of a hummer grazed during combat power.

We have the same problem – not so much. He never seemed to affect birds, but we have a double-sided tape on the hanging feeder. Some seem to be always ahead, but nothing like it to be used. Good luck!

We no longer recommend the use of tapes or castor oil around the suction cups or hanging cables. There is a possibility of 's too much of a hummer grazed during combat power.
