Hummingbird Momma got its name about five years ago by my husband. I spent many summers trying to get these little hummers to come to my feeders. It took a lot of my time to figure out what worked and what did not work. Being sensitive to environmental issues, I began to seek out and develop the purest organic formulation available to feed my little Hummers. Because of the time I spent on this project, my husband started calling me;
Many people fill their feeders to full, not realizing that the heat and direct sunlight makes the nectar turn rancid, by putting smaller amounts of nectar in the feeder was not only economical, the solution stayed fresher. Cleaning my feeder with warm water (no soap or detergent) daily and refilling them with fresh nectar kept my little Hummers returning every day, all summer long!
Hanging my feeders in the shade was helpful, however I did not always have that option, and I learned that changing my nectar frequently in direct sun areas helped to keep it fresh. I also learned that our little Hummers are very territorial and fight a lot over the feeders if they are to close together. Strategically placing your feeders in separate unique locations helps to eliminate feeder competition. One sad lesson I learned early on, was not to put the feeders to close to my windows. When they began to fight over the feeders, I unfortunately lost a few Hummers as they would accidently fly into our windows and sliding glass doors.
The myth that the red dye in the nectar attracts our Hummers is not true… Depending on the manufacturer, the colored dye in these nectar packs can be quite toxic to them. Hanging fragrant red and purple flowers close to the feeders are much more enticing to our frequent flyers. I remain dedicated to providing our little Hummers with the purest form of Hummingbird Nectar Concentrate possible. Hummingbird Momma
