Hummingbird Food Recipe


If you want to attract hummingbirds to your yard, you can plant flowers to attract them. However, if you don't want to take up gardening, an easy way is to provide them with a tasty treat is to make your own nectar. This hummingbird food recipe is simple, using only two ingredients. It's quick and easy, so there's no need to purchase an expensive product.

4 parts water
1 part sugar - use only white granulated sugar

Boil the water and then slowly add the sugar. Boil the solution for several minutes to ensure that the sugar granules dissolve. Let it cool before using. This boiling and cooling process will help prevent the growth of yeasts and bacteria that could be harmful to these tiny, flying acrobats.

Pour the hummingbird nectar recipe into a freshly cleaned hummingbird feeder. Make sure to clean your hummingbird feeder between refills, as the sugary liquid can go bad easily in the summer sun. Refrigerate any leftover nectar for future use.
Don't add artificial food dye because it may harm the birds.

Change the nectar in the hummingbird feeders at least every 6 or 7 days. Clean the feeders with soap and water before adding new nectar.
