feeder turning yellow

donnas_gw(7)June 21, 2010

I've had one particular hummingbird feeder for several years now. The part that hold the nectar is plastic, but over the years it has turned a dark yellow. Is there anything that I can use that will restore it back to it's original state? If not, will the hummers even drink from it? Other than what I mentioned above, the feeder is still in good condition. Thanks.

I don't think there is anything that you can do about the yellowing plastic and I don't think it would deter the hummers at all.

eigdeh, when I look at the plastic part that holds the nectar, it looks like a tall glass of beer LOL. I went ahead and put it out just a little while ago. Haven't seen any hummers yet.
