Important  Thoughts

If there is noticeable signs of mold on your sugar water before 2 weeks, discard and make a fresh batch. Please do NOT use red dye. Red dye is harmful to hummingbirds. Use a red feeder to attract them instead of dyeing their food. Don't use raw or natural sugars -- they contain too much iron that can hurt hummingbirds. Do not use honey or corn syrup.
