How to Attract Hummingbirds

Hummingbirds are on the move. As of April 1st they have been seen in northern Tennessee. Their expected arrival in the Columbus area is within 2 weeks. Now is the time to clean, fix or add a new feeder to your yard.  We have plenty of feeders, nectar, brushes, books etc on hand to help you enjoy these tiny creatures. We also have the Nectar Defender in stock. The Nectar Defender keeps your nectar fresh longer. Made from a micronutrient that is part of a hummingbirds normal diet, it is perfectly safe. We have been educating for years to change your nectar every3-4 days in the spring and fall and every 2 days in the summer. Now with this micronutrient, you can wait about 10 days to change the nectar. Your job just got easier! When you go on vacation, no worry. Change the nectar right before you leave and your hummingbirds will have fresh nectar when you are gone. Again, this is will not harm your birds. One 4.0 oz bottle may last all season. I used this last year and was very happy with the results. Reminder of our annual tips:

no red dye

no brown sugar

no artificial sweetners

no honey

no pre-made with preservatives

just plain, raw, white table sugar


The nectar we recommend and carry in our store is refined table sugar, which means no boiling needed.
