    My mother has had dozens, every year. She has 6 feeders and fills them almost every day. In the evening, it is fun to watch them. It is almost like a war zone on her deck!

    Do not use food coloring. Her receipt is 4 parts water, 1 part sugar. Boil the water, then add sugar. Once it is well dissolved, it cool for about an hour, then fill the feeders.

    I have several feeders out with ribbon to attract them. I get 1-2 a week. I am not sure why but my neighbor who has had an incredible flower garden for years never gets them either. Lots of other birds, bees and wasps instead.

    Better plant colorful flowers to attract hummingbirds because they don’t have sense of smell.
    To name few flowers that they are attracted to: coral bells, daylily, lily, petunia and larkspur.
