Hummingbird Feeder Accessories

Ant Moats

The essential nectar feeder accessory! Ant Moats are your first line of defense when protecting the nectar in your feeders from ants. Filled with water, the cups form a barrier that keeps ants from marching down your feeder, straight to the nectar.

Aspects Nectar Guards

The Backyard Naturalist recommends putting Aspects nectar guards on your Hummzinger feeders.

We recommend Aspects Nectar Guards to create a bee-proof and ant-proof barrier. Unlike other bee guards on the market, these really work effectively! Especially for Aspect feeders, like their Hummzinger series. Easy to put on! Just slide one on each feeding port. Twelve guards in each box.

There’s a flexible membrane in the center of each tip that opens when a Hummingbird inserts its beak to eat and closes up tight again when the Hummingbird leaves.

The Backyard Naturalist recommends Aspects Hummingbird Nectar Guard Tips because unlike other products on the market, these really work!

The Hummingbird Swing

The Hummingbird Swing offers Hummingbirds a place to wait their turns at your nectar feeder!

While Hummingbirds are waiting their turn at the feeder, give them a strategic place to perch:
The Hummingbird Swing! We were skeptical… but, Hummingbirds really do use it!!!

Hummingbird Habitat

Hummingbird Nesting Material

Hummingbird takes nesting material from Hummer Helper cage at The Backyard Naturalist.

When their preferred soft lichen is scarce or unavailable, help your Hummingbirds line their tiny nests by providing nesting material approved by The Hummingbird Society.

Grow Flowers That Attract Hummingbirds

The Backyard Naturalist Butterfly Flower Garden Seeds for Eastern States. Organic seeds from Botanical Interests to attract bees, butterflies, hummingbirds and other wild birds to your backyard.

Take your Hummingbird hosting to the next level by planting flowers that attract Hummingbirds. We recommend the Hummingbird Haven seed blend for its variety of annual, biennials and perennials.
