|This thing works!|
A while back, I posted about large ants clogging my hummingbird feeder and fouling the nectar. Some of you mentioned that I should get an ant guard.
I cleverly did not broadcast my ignorance of such a thing, just nodded knowingly.
Meanwhile, the ants continued to foul the feeder, the hummers quit using it, and I was washing ants out of it about every other day.
A few weeks ago, I was walking through the Gainesville Lowes, just browsing the bird feeder section and there it was!
... AND it wasn't expensive!
I think it was only about $5.
This baby works like a charm.
The nectar stays clear and unfouled.
The hummers are knocking themselve out in a sugar high frenzy, and any ant that walks up the pole to the ant guard turns around and hauls abdomen back to where he came from.
I'm giving this product the FC pinniped of approval.
