Review RatePlay with mixtureI had problems with the little guys around here not liking the concentrate. I did a little playing with the mixture and found they like it a little sweeter than the directions mixture, so I cut the water back about a 1/8 - 1/4 cup and they love it. Also started using a good bottled water as we have a well that's heavy with iron.
Review RatePicky Hummers?
I'll be calling Perky Pet...... I'm very disappointed. For unknown reasons, my hummers here in Southern California (Black Chinned Hummingbirds) do not like the clear concentrate nectar. This is the second time I have tried it. I am having to go back to making my own formula out of sugar and water. I tried looking in blogs to see if anyone else is having this issue but so far I see nothing. Any Advice? Thanks.Response From Perky-Pet®Rachel : Consumer Relations Representative
We are sorry to hear this! This 100% sucrose concentrate mimics natural flower nectar and is the perfect energy source for every type of hummingbird. Hummingbird nectars mixed with Sucrose deliver energy quicker to hummingbirds because sucrose is digested faster by the birds, making it the preferred nectar for the birds! As always, we also recommend cleaning your feeder and filling it with fresh nectar twice a week, and more often in warmer climates. For additional assistance, please feel free to give us a ring at 1-855-737-5973 and we would be happy to help!
Review RateGreat productHummingbirds love this nectar. I prefer giving them clear nectar instead of one that has been colored red. The birds don't seem to care at all what color it is. This is a very good deal for the price since its concentrated and keeps the hummers very well fed and happy.
- All About
All About - Sucrose vs. Dextrose and Fructose:
Hummingbird nectars mixed with Sucrose deliver energy quicker to hummingbirds because sucrose is digested faster by the birds. Dextrose and fructose, which are often used by other companies in their hummingbird nectar, fail to mimic the key properties of the natural flower nectar that serves as fuel for hummingbirds. Quite simply, nectars based on dextrose and fructose will not convert to energy as efficiently as Perky-Pet®’s 100% sucrose formula.

Clear Nectar FAQs
Q: Why buy dye-free hummingbird nectar?
A: Perky-Pet® offers feeders that carry an array of proven attractants to hummingbirds, so there’s no need to use any color in the nectar. We asked ourselves “Why not provide a more natural food source to hummers?” That’s just what we did!
Q: Are hummingbirds only attracted to red?
A: No. When you watch hummingbirds in the wild, you see them visit plenty of non-red flowers. That being said, humans have trained hummingbirds to associate the color with food. That training is why most Perky-Pet hummingbird products have red in them. Don’t worry if your feeder doesn’t have red in it, the hummingbirds are sure to enjoy it just as much!
