That’s why this feeder features built-in bee guards at each port and a built-in ant moat to ensure that the nectar supply is reserved for the birds. To use the ant moat, fill the top of the lid with water.

To make that easier, our feeders have been designed to allow for effortless cleaning. The wide mouth design allows you to sanitize all of the hard-to-reach spots in the bottle, while the base comes apart for better access. Remember to clean your feeder at least twice per week with a mild soap and water solution to prevent mildew buildup.
 
Five Stars “This feeder has some excellent features – bee guards on the "flowers" and the base contains the nectar so the yellow jackets can't reach anything. Good reservoir size, too. Very pleased with my purchase.” (Review from DebNoCo) Read More Reviews »

Great feeders, bad food mix!!! By ROSE

These are wonderful feeders. We wrapped some bubble wrap around them because we get freezing temps and no one makes an insulated feeder. The hummers who stick around all year had no problem getting used to the new opening's. I couldn't give a five star because the free mix included, isn't sugar. The ingredients are sucralose or some toxic seeming ingredient. I don't understand why we need to chemicalize what is a simple mixture, i.e. sugar and water. I read the ingredients and I wouldn't put it in my body, why would they think it was good for a bird????

Response From Perky-Pet®
Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Rose,

We are glad to hear that your hummers are enjoying the feeder!

The main ingredient in our powdered concentrate is sucrose (table sugar) rather than sucralose (an artificial sweetener). The other listed ingredients are preservatives. All ingredients are food grade. We love hummingbirds as much as you do!

Feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) with any additional questions.

Not happy with this product By BEVERLY

This does not appear to be your best feeder. I HAVE THREE TOPS THAT HAVE BROKEN AND THE WHOLE THING CRASHES TO THE GROUND. I HAVE ASK TO HAVE MY TOPS REPLACED. BUT NO ONE IS LISTNING. I HAVE BEEN BUYING HUMMING BIRD FEEDERS FROM PERKY PET FOR OVER 40 YEARS AND HAVE NEVER HAD A PROBLEM BEFORE

Cleaning flowers By Tom

Flowers impossible to clean ! Any suggestions

Response From Perky-Pet®
Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Tom,

We are happy to provide assistance.  The base of this feeder comes apart for better access to cleaning and the flower feeding ports can be removed and soaked if needed.  We recommend cleaning feeders at least once or twice a week to prevent mildew buildup.

The smaller of the two brushes in our Perky-Pet® 2-in-1 Cleaning Brush & Port Cleaner (model 8206-12) is designed to fit in the small opening of hummingbird feeder ports. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) with additional questions.

Why can't I buy replacement parts any longer? By Grady

I have several of the older model 209 feeders, which I love and the hummingbirds love. I just need some replacement parts to keep them in service. I need flowers, a hanging wire and cap, and some feeder perches. I used to be able to buy the replacement parts on your website, but it seems you no longer sell them. I refuse to buy a new 209b feeder, which receives quite a few negative reviews, when all I need is a couple of parts for my old ones. Why do you no longer sell replacement parts for the model 209 feeder?

Easiest to clean By Mick H

I have about a dozen of these feeders (6 hanging, 6 clean for quick refill/replacement), and there's no problem with birds using them. In fact, they are so popular that I found more than 6 birds at a time on a single feeder perch, taking turns at the feeding ports. Hummingbirds are very picky about which feeders to use, and when. If I see one not being used much, I'll exchange it for a more "popular" feeder nearby. This helps keep the sugar water fresher for all, vs. waiting for the less-popular feeder to get used, which may otherwise take a few days. I used the older 209 until the 209B became available, and I switched over immediately. MUCH easier to clean the newer model! My only suggestion for improvement (otherwise earns 5 stars) is to solidly attach a longer hook to the top (or just go back to the stiff wire used on the 209). Unless you're very tall, you can't see the hook (because of the ant moat), and often end up spilling sugar water on your feet.

BEST FEEDER FOR THOSE WITH LOTS OF HUMMERS. By Crazy Colleen

These hummingbird feeders are fantastic. There are so many things I love about them. They have more feeding ports and carry twice the nectar of my other feeders so I don't need to put up and clean as many feeders. They are so much faster to clean because the bottle opening is big, so you don't have to stand and wait for each feeder to empty out the water. Also, because the opening is large, I don't need to use a funnel and can directly pour the nectar from the pitcher. The bottom comes apart, so they can be thoroughly and easily cleaned without having to worry if you missed any dead bugs or possible mold. I purchased the set of 4 and now realize that it has cut down on the work substantially I will be buying a couple of more sets to be ready for next summer, being that the hummers have take over my life and have put up as a many as 27 smaller feeders.

Finickey Hummers By Nute

I bought one of the "Our best" hummingbird feeders. Oddly enough the hummingbirds here in the mountains of So Cal. don't seem to like it. May the holes get plugged up. They go after our old smaller one which we have to fill much more often.

Response From Perky-Pet®
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

We apologize for this experience. Birds are  creatures of habit and will sometimes be hesitant to try new feeders in their environment. We recommend temporarily removing established feeders to aide the transition.

A BAD buy! Better to purchase multiple smaller feeders than this abomination! By Sir

I just bought a 209B to rplace a 209 that broke when I dropped it. This 209B is a badly designed atrocity when compared to a 209. Birds don't like it! The flowers are badly positioned. Birds must remain airborne in order to feed. The plastic ring from which it hangs is engineered to fail. The base of a thousand pieces is an invitation for parts to break while being handled. Overall,

Bring back the feeder with the plasic coated wire on the top for hanging. By Eddie

Was given one of your new humming bird feeders & it also fell & the top plastic broke. It was not even full. I have two of the old design & fill them as full as I can. The old plastic coated wire on them is just fine. Please bring back the old design. I called the phone No. given, but didn't get any help. The girl did not even show any compassion.

Q&A
Q.I have an old model 209 and a new 209B humming bird feeders. The new one came with the red rubber gasket. I have gotten it mixed up as to which one the gasket goes to, and we are having problems with a vacuum being created and the birds can’t get nectar. What is the purpose of the gasket, and can I do away with it? If not, how can I tell which feeder it goes to? They look the same.
A.

Although the feeders look very similar, the easiest way to tell them apart is by the base. The feeder with the base that can be separated into two pieces is the redesigned version (model 209B). This is the model that requires the rubber gasket.

Q.I have the same or similar feeder for 209B, except my feeder has a gray domed style cover at the top. This cover cracked so wondering if there is a replacement holder for this style feeder? Thanks!
A.

A recent business decision was made to no longer offer parts due to low demand. All feeders continue to have a one-year warranty. Our Consumer Relations Team can be reached at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) with any questions or for additional assistance.

Q.Model #: bb209b I have this hummingbird feeder and bees started to swarm to it last week. They aren not going to the feeder yellow flowers but to where the clear glass jar sits on the red base. It would appear that for some reason they are able to access the nectar around the circumference of the base. The jar seems to be screwed in properly. Why is this happening? Thanks for your reply.
A.

If a strong vacuum wasn't created fully when turning the feeder upright quickly, the nectar could possibly seep into that spot slowly.  Feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for additional assistance.
