I bought this product to get my order up to the amount to qualify for free shipping. The birds seem to love it although it is still pretty cool in our area and there aren't many hummingbirds out yet.

Q.Does the hummingbird nectar concentrate require refrigeration after opening?39yAk

Yes, the nectar will need to be stored in the refrigerator and can be used for up to a month after opening.

Q.How long can I keep the mixed nectar in my feeder before I need to change it?

We recommend changing the nectar and cleaning out a hummingbird feeder 1-2 times per week. Feeders should be cleaned more frequently in hot and humid climates.

Q: What is the difference between sucrose, dextrose and fructose?

A: 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, nectar mixes based on dextrose and fructose don’t convert to energy as well as Perky-Pet’s 100% sucrose formula.


Q: How do I mix this concentrate?

A: Mix 3 parts water with one part concentrate. Here is a guide.

Q: Why are hummingbird feathers shiny?

A: Hummingbird feathers – and those of many other birds – have a quality to them that is called ‘iridescence.’ This metallic sheen is created by light reflecting off of multiple layers of air bubbles trapped on the surface of each feather. It’s very similar to the shine you see on soap bubbles or oil.


Q: How close can I get to a hummingbird?

A: Hummingbirds are very curious creatures and will investigate anything they think might hold some food. Some YouTube videos show hummingbirds enjoying nectar out of people’s hands. You can also get up-close with a hummingbird by trying one of our window-mounted hummingbird feeders.
