Remember to clean your feeder at least once per week with a mild soap and water solution to prevent mildew buildup.How to Clean the Pinch-Waist Hummingbird Feeder Watch this video and see for yourself just how easy it is to keep the Perky-Pet® Pinch-Waist Glass Hummingbird Feeder looking sparkling clean. Your hummingbirds will thank you for your efforts!“I LOVE THIS FEEDER! I replaced the old style of this feeder for this updated style and I'm so glad I did! The wider opening allows for cleaning with a regular bottlebrush (the old style had a narrow neck and was difficult to clean) and the bee guards that open for cleaning are great. I like the size of this feeder because the birds eat the nectar so quickly it makes sure I am cleaning them every few days, which prevents the mold that is harmful to the hummers."

Review RateOld bee guard good, new bee guard bad.
Have fed hummers for years here in Maryland successfully with the 'older' model of this feeder. Small opening to fill the liquid into, no ant moat, different flat-faced yellow bee guard than the new feeder. Recently purchased this model. The new yellow bee guards are dome-shaped. The new domed guards have let the local small pollinators in to drown. Very upsetting. What can be done? Thank youResponse From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for providing this feedback! We are very sorry for this unusual experience and have shared this information with our Product Managers. If bees are still able to gain access to the nectar, we recommend removing the feeder for a few days and then placing it back up in a slightly different location. This will allow the bees to find a new food source.

Review RateMake a larger pinch waist feeder.
The pinch waist feeder is my, (and the hummers) favorite . I wish you would make it in a quart size. I'm having a problem with bees getting inside the bee guards.
Review RateDidn't leak for several years but now does.
I've had my small mouth pinch-waist feeder for, probably, 5 years with excellent results in attracting numerous hummingbirds, sometimes 4 at a time. No leaks. Very pleased. This season it started leaking so bad that it drained the glass vial in less than a day. It was leaking from the bottom center where the screw holds the perch. When I took it apart, found that the the plastic threaded insert that holds the glass vial was broken. The threads came apart. It would seem that the perch could be glued to the base instead of screwed in place. All in all very happy. Can I buy just the parts.
Review RateBest feeders on the market. easy to clean and hummers love them
I love these feeders! I have benn feeding Hummingbirds in the same yard for 35 years. Over those years i have tried many different feeders and these are the best; easy to break apart and clean all the pieces and buy replacement pieces if you need them and most importantly the hummingbirds visit these more than any of my other types of feeders!
Review RateHoles in the yellow flower inserts are too big-lets ants in.
I eagerly looked forward to using the new feeder-like the glass connection without the plastic insert- and the moat on the top-no longer have to poke a hole and string the hanger thru an apple sauce container. However the holes in the yellow inserts are too big- each time I've tried to use it- within a day it's full of ants- inside the feeder, in the yellow inserts even with water in the top moat. I'm going to try it with the flat topped yellow inserts. My old feeder has been hung for 3 days with no ants.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for providing this feedback! We are very sorry to hear of this experience. If ants are still able to access the nectar, we recommend using the Perky-Pet® AntGuard® (Model 245L) in addition to filling the ant moat at the top of the feeder. This product uses Permethrin to repel the ants from the feeder.

Review RateInternal part breaks
we've lost five of these to cracked bases. Maybe I can find the receipts. One was just put out - we kept it as reserve so who knows when we bought it. The part that cracks is the milky colored plastic part inside the red plastic. Why don't you just sell a package of five of those for $9.95 or something and make our lives simpler? I am pretty much done with your product otherwise.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateI like these feeders
I bought three of these feeders to add to my hummingbird feeder array and replace some older, rusting, metal feeders. I really like them. I haven't noticed a problem with leaking, or attracting bees or ants, but I don't have any of my feeders placed over a deck or concrete surface. I do have the feeders placed over or near flowering herbs and shrubs that the bees seem to prefer. What I like about these feeders is the capacity that is perfect for refilling every one or two days and the ease of cleaning.
Review RateLove this!
I love this feeder! The wide mouth makes it easy to clean. I have had no leaking problems with this but did with the old design. The orioles love it as well as the hummingbirds.
Review RatePerfect except.
These are the perfect feeders except for one thing. They have a steady drip. Seems to help if after pushing the bee guards in to pull the flowers out to meet the guards. This seems to slow the trip somewhat. To bad because it is perfect in every other way.
Review RateAnts Are Happy
Your wide-mouth design has caused the leaking issue. My old punch-waist feeder with the narrow mouth was used in the SAME place for over 5 years, in the sun, and NEVER leaked. This new one leaks continually and now I have ants all over my 2nd story deck. They swarm onto the leaking nectar and now have decided to move into all my potted flowers. Not pleased. You really need to go back to your old design. It may have been a bit harder to clean, but it never leaked. Review after review has the same complaint, but you just keep making excuses. Bottom line is that this new wide-mouth design is flawed. May have been wise to test prior to manufacturing and selling to everyone.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
