The Humm-Bug Hummingbird Protein Feeder attracts hummingbirds by first attracting fruit flies, a favourite treat for these tiny fine-feathered friends. Simply open the two-piece feeder, add 2 to 3 bananas and within a few days, hummingbirds will arrive to feast on the fruit flies.
Hummingbirds cannot live on nectar alone - protein and vitamins found in small insects are essential for their survival. Fruit flies are one of hummingbirds' favourite foods and a single bird can eat hundreds a day. Hummingbirds also feed their young nectar and insects about every 20 minutes.
The Humm-Bug Feeder should be hung in a dry, shaded area. For best results, hang the feeder next to flowers and/or a nectar feeder. Lift the lid and place 2-3 bananas in the center of the feeder. Empty, rinse and refill every 3 weeks.

I love that this feeder uses recycled fuel! My kids love feeding the birds, the fruit flies totally sustain the birds, causing them to nest near my garden! Wonderful product, well made!
