Love this product! By Buglade

This is the best nectar I have found! It is so easy to make and it dissolves quickly. Best of all the "hummers" love it!

The hummingbirds seem to like this feed. It is very easy to mix and use. I have two feeders up, both with the instant nectar mixture.

Q.I have heard red dye is not good for hummingbirds that you should only use the red stuff if it is made of some kind of bug. What is your red dye made of?

Our nectar is made of food-grade ingredients.

Q.A few times when i bought your hummingbird food-( dry makes 32oz.)- i buy same product, when mixed there were no color/ light pinkish, even deep purplish red. Why is that and shouldnt you keep the same thing for feeding the hb??? Thank you

We mix several ingredients (including a concentrated red dye) with our sugar to make nectar. The ingredients are added to a 55 gallon drum of sugar and then the barrel is tumbeld for 15 minutes to disperse the ingredients. Depending on what portion of the 55 gallon drum is feeding the packaging machine at any point in time the ingredients (including the dye) may not be as well dispersed in some portions of the mix as others.

Q.Which is better ted or clear nectar

Both are great products and are made of 100% sucrose. We don't have one type of nectar that is better than another.
