Hummingbird enthusiasts want high quality feeders that last longer and are easier to clean. The closed-in bases of most popular feeders are difficult to clean and not dishwasher safe. Dr JB's Hummingbird products was founded to build upon the best features of today's popular feeders, but solve their problems - with our NEW dishwasher-safe removable parts and a wide mouth jar that takes the time and mess out of cleaning and filling the feeder.
Cleaning the Dr. JB Clean Feeder in 3 easy steps...
Note: When using soap to hand wash the feeder or when using a dishwasher, always follow up by rinsing with a mild bleach and water solution before re-filling with sugar and water. Rinse well.
1. Unscrew bottle from base.
2. Lay base upside-down on sturdy, flat surface. Firmly push down on opposite sides of outer (red) rim of base. Inner (teal) part of base will "pop" loose. Do Not apply pressure directly to the outer perch.
Place all parts of feeder in the top rack of the dishwasher.
Filling the Dr. JB's Clean Feeder
... Mess-free filling!
Fill with our convenient Easy Mix Hummingbird Nectar (Red or Clear), Ready-To-Use Hummingbird Nectar (Red or Clear), or make your own!
Note: This makes an approximate four-to-one, water-to-sugar nectar solution. There is no need to boil water to make an effective nectar solution for hummingbirds.
1. Unscrew the bottle to remove it from the base
2. Pour 1/3 cup of granulated sugar into the bottle.
3. Add 1-1/2 cups of hot tap water into the bottle.
4. Swirl solution in circular motion. Mix thoroughly, until milky.
5. Re-attach the base onto the bottle. Screw the base assembly onto the bottle.
6. Take feeder outdoors, turn right-side up. The feeder should not splash or spill at all if you quickly flip it right-side up. It won't even spill or leak when it swings back and forth!
7. Hang from a stable support.
Try hanging your feeder at a good distance from any human or animal activity, and about six feet off the ground. Hummingbirds are very shy. They will eventually become accustomed to human activity, but they will be very hesitant to feed regularly at new feeders when there are humans nearby.
