Hey little bee!! What are you doing? Well it seems that the bees have taken a liking to the hummingbird feeder’s nectar. How funny. But it takes away from the hummingbird getting its fuel. And once one bee finds a sweet source, he will tell all his busy bee buddies and they overtake the feeder.
So what did I do to fix this little situation? Well I took the feeders down for a few days and I purchased a bunch of flowers that would keep the bees occupied and away from the feeders.
Snapdragons, Pink Jasmine, Lantanas, Some white flowers, and a bunch of others that I forgot the name of. 😉 Some of the pics you see that are taken inside the house, is because today in my city it is Super Windy. So I brought them inside until the wind dies down.
The bees actually do go for the flowers now instead of the nectar. I see the bees still fly around the area where they found the feeder, but since I moved it, they can’t find it. Sorry little bees, but you get flowers to love.
The hummingbirds do also get many trumpet shaped flowers and I see they prefer those too. Always drinking the nectar from the plants first and then heading over to the feeder. I know this post is short, but I just wanted to share, and hopefully help someone else out who has a problem with bees at their hummingbird feeders. Thank You all for reading. I appreciate you all. GOD Bless you!!
Here is some video evidence of the bees drinking!!
I had the experience of a hummingbird coming by to say hello. It usually comes by everyday. Check out the video above. Enjoy!.
God Bless You all! The Lord uses his creations to inspire us in life to do the will of the Lord.
