Hummingbird feeder maintenance

Hummingbird feeder maintenance is important to keep hummingbirds coming back.

We found out that the hummingbird feeder maintenance is one of the most important things to do to keep the hummingbirds coming back on a regular basis. We clean, well I mean my husband cleans our feeders and puts in fresh nectar every 3 or 4 days. If the weather is real hot or the nectar gets cloudy we may change every thing sooner. We clean the feeders with warm water a sponge and vinegar and rinse them off real good. We also found out that certain type feeders are much easier to clean than others. So far the dish type feeder in the photo above we have found to be the easiest to clean.
