The Best Way To Keep Bees Away From Your Hummingbird Feeder

The best way to keep bees away from your hummingbird feeder is to make the feeder less appealing to them while still attracting hummingbirds.

One effective method is to choose a feeder design with bee guards or bee-resistant features.

Additionally, placing the feeder in a shaded area can help deter bees, as they are less likely to visit feeders in shady spots.


Regularly cleaning the feeder and ensuring that it doesn't leak or drip will also help prevent attracting bees.

Another tactic is to hang decoy feeders filled with plain water nearby, as bees may be attracted to these instead of the hummingbird feeder.

Lastly, using feeders with smaller feeding ports designed specifically for hummingbirds can make it difficult for bees to access the nectar.
