Nectar filled hummerbar® is a 2-foot plastic tube offering 22 feeding ports and, when compared to other hummingbird feeders, is easy to clean. Patented feeder hangs horizontally while delivering plenty of nectar for hummingbirds. Feeder ports are made of plastic molded in red, a color proven to attract hummers. Each port is spaced just right to allow hummingbirds to feed side-by-side!
The feeder is built of a clear plastic feeding tube, which allows you to easily monitor nectar levels.
With Perky-Pet®'s Hummerbar®, you get the ultimate hummingbird feeder!
How to hang the Hummerbar®
- Remove an end cap.
- Remove nectar-pouring funnel from tube.
- Replace the end cap.
- Select an outdoor area to hang the Hummerbar®.
- Hang using loops at end of hanging cords—make sure the feeder is low enough to access for refilling and cleaning.
- Level the Hummerbar® by adjusting its cords. Slide cord locks up and down as needed to level.
- Remove rubber stopper from nectar basin and insert funnel.
- Fill about 1⁄4th full with Perky-Pet® hummingbird nectar. Compare each end by eye. If nectar is pooling to one side, then adjust cord locks again.
- Once nectar is evenly distributed, continue to fill nectar basin until half full. Do not overfill.
- Remove funnel, insert rubber stopper.
The best hummingbird nectar uses a 100% sucrose formula, which hummers prefer because it is easy to digest. All Perky-Pet® Hummingbird Nectar uses a 100% sucrose formula.
Never fill the Hummerbar® more than half-full. Overfilling the Hummerbar® can cause the feeder to leak.
If a 2-foot Perky-Pet® Hummerbar® isn't enough for your hummers, then try the the 4-foot version. With 44 feeder ports on the 4-foot version, you can feed even more hummingbirds.

Review RateProduct Fail
A total fail. This feeder is impossible to balance and it leaks with the slightest breeze. A huuuge waste of money.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience. This feeder should be hung from two points that are 90° above the cord eyelets. We recommend hanging from two shepherd’s hooks or from two hooks on a porch awning. The feeder should also be placed in an area that receives partial sun and is sheltered from strong winds.

Review RateFun change from the usual feeder.
A bit awkward to set up, but once it's up the hummers love it. Sad point is that the local bear loves it too. He's managed to drink it dry twice without ruining it, but I think it only has one more life.
Review Ratepositive and informational
Not my favorite. It is difficult to put in a position to be balanced so that it won't leak. So far the the hummingbirds are not very interested. But maybe in the future. I think my Hummingbirds are a bit scared so far. My feeder doesn't leak as was previously reported and it helps to have a second person to assist in the initial placement. I am happy with the product and will allow a full season to allow my humming birds to make theirs. So far I get 1-2 hummingbirds a day to try it. So it is getting more attention, happy happy
bought this feeder last year, can't keep it from leaking from both ends. keep pushing in the ends and twisting to get it to stop leaking, unable to keep it from leaking, tossing it in garbage. Dissatisfied with feeder. leaks all over the porch and is great for feeding ants.Response From Perky-Pet®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateNot happy
Hello- I have 14 humming bird feeders in my yard! I dont understand the purpose of sticking that 12 inch label on the outside of the hummerbar! It will not come off! I've tried, it looks awful and is very sticky! I would buy more if this was not on there!! I don't understand why you can't put that inside the bar with the other information or a hanging tag!Response From Perky-Pet®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to share this feedback. We apologize for this experience and are happy to assist. To clean the sticker from the feeder, we recommend soaking the feeder tube in a mild soap and water solution. Scrub the tube with a non-abrasive sponge to help remove the sticker.

Review RateProduct FAIL
Frustrated that I spent $$ on something that in theory should have been awesome! Why the big sticker? Why the poor instructions? Long story short, the amount of time and effort it took to get the feeder to the point of use was ridiculous (and I'm no stranger to setting up feeders)!Response From Perky-Pet®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to share this feedback. We apologize for this experience and would like to learn more about what is occurring so we may better assist. To remove the sticker, we recommend soaking the feeder in mild, soapy water and scrubbing with a non-abrasive brush.

Review RateDoes not work!
I agree with the other reviewers, THIS FEEDER IS A MESS right from the start. The label is all but impossible to remove and then when you do finally get it removed the area remains cloudy. Next hanging to get it level is the next challenge. The feeder is light weight a swings in wind. The after all this I have only seen 1 humming bird drinking from it in about 6 mo. I generally hang about 5 -6, 4-cup feeders that I fill daily so lack of hummingbirds is not the problem. I removed my 4 cup feeders for a week and still they did not want to drink from this feeder. The birds would go to where the other feeders were, but not drink from this new one. This new feeder is just junk. Perky Pert generally has great feeders, but I do not understand how thus hit the market. Didn't anyone test it out? I generally take things I no longer want and that are still In good condition, but this I threw in the trash. No one deserves to have junk like this. I will think twice before I try a new type of feeder from Perky Pet next time and I will be sure to keep my receipt. Save yourself a big headache and stick with the tried and true feeders. ( I gave this 1 star, only because there was no option of zero stars.)
Review RateHunk of Plastic Junk?
Agree with all about the label. I used some essential oil mixture to get it off and didn't hurt the feeder much. It was a little difficult to fill, since you had to do it hanging, instead of being able to take it down and fill it in the house. have had it up a few days and I don't think there has been a bird near it. I know they have long beaks, but I am not sure they could reach the food if they came. I filled it half full as the instructions say, but I feel the normal feeder has the juice in closer proximity to the flower feeders. The birds I have had liked to perch on my other feeder. No perches here. I too, looked at this more than once before getting sucked into buying it. I am always shopping for a bargain and a feed store had these marked down, No wonder!Response From Perky-Pet®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
Perky-Pet® has a long history of producing high-quality and reliable bird feeders and products. We apologize for this experience and would be happy to provide assistance.
Hummingbirds have long bills and tongues that can reach deep into flowers to find nectar. Our feeders are designed to provide a similar experience for the hummingbirds.
Birds are creatures of habit and can take some time to become accustomed to a new feeder. Temporarily removing other established feeders can aid in the transition. Our feeders are covered by a 30 day return policy and a one year replacement warranty. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for additional assistance.
Review RateLabel problem
The label is impossible to get off without leaving a sticky, cloudy film on the tube. I will find out if it effects the feeding of the hummers. Please do something about the label!Response From Perky-Pet®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for the time taken to provide this feedback, Roger, we apologize for this experience.
The label should remove with mild soap and water. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for additional assistance.
Review RateDo not buy
Do not buy this feeder. It's nothing but a mess, a hassle, and attracts ants. The hummingbirds never go to it. Bringing it inside to empty and clean was dfficult as the feed leaked when it was being taken down, any time it's off level of course. Cleaning it was a chore as it grew mold on the inside of the tube. I tried to run a washcloth on the inside and that broke the ports. Wish I could get a credit to buy another type of feeder. This was a waste of money. :(Response From Perky-Pet®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Hummingbird Feeders - FAQs
Q: What else do I need to know about hanging a Hummerbar®?
A: Make sure the Hummerbar® is level. This will be the key to enjoying your Hummerbar®. If the feeder isn't level, then nectar can ooze out of its feeder ports. The best way to level the feeder is to use a "construction level" as you work on placing it. Start by leveling it by sight, then use the tool to help you make additional adjustments.
Use the easy-sliding locks on each cord to fix the feeder into place. If those locks stay in place, your Hummerbar® should be "just right" every time.
Q: Should I "test" my Hummerbar® to see if it's level?
A: Instead of dealing with sticky nectar, try testing it with some water. After leveling it, pour some water into the Hummerbar®'s nectar basin. If the liquid distributes evenly along the Hummerbar®, it's ready to take nectar. If the water pools in one end, you need to work on leveling the Hummerbar® again. Once it appears to be level, dump the water and add your Perky-Pet® nectar!
Q: Do you fill the Hummerbar® to the top?
A: Never fill your Hummerbar® all the way to the top. First, you should only fill the Hummerbar® with as much nectar as your hummingbirds will eat in two days. Secondly, you should only fill about half of the Hummerbar® nectar basin—any higher and you could risk spilling nectar. Don't worry about the hummers though. The basin size was set to match the length of a hummingbird's tongue!
Q: What's the cleaning schedule for my Hummerbar®?
A: Clean the Hummerbar® every two days to keep mold from forming. On especially cool days, you can let it sit a day or so longer.
Q: Why is nectar leaking from the feeder ports?
A: Two things could cause your Hummerbar® to leak from its feeder ports. Did you overfill it? Remember to never fill a Hummerbar® more than half-full. Also, are you sure the feeder is level? This could cause leakage out of one end of the Hummerbar®. Try re-leveling it.
Q: Why is nectar leaking from the end caps?
A: If this is happening, just try pushing the end caps fully into the Hummerbar®. Each end cap should seal around the end of the Hummerbar®. After any leak, you may want to wipe the feeder down with a wet cloth.
Q: Should I take my Hummerbar® down when bad weather is coming?
A: High winds could cause your Hummerbar® to start swinging. The sloshing action could cause nectar to leak out.
Q: I want to bring even more hummingbirds. Any tips?
A: You can bring more hummingbirds to your yard by adding hummingbird-friendly flowers, including zinnias, butterfly bushes, columbines and salvias. Also make sure you have a good source of water for hummingbirds and other birds.
