Nectar mix? Info needed

studio157(6 NW Indiana)June 26, 2007

Have come across several recipies and would like clarification as to the best to use. 1/2C sugar to 1c water, 1/3c sugar to 1c water or 1/4c sugar to 1 c water. And then there is the argument of to add Red food color or not. What is the experience of the folks here. I would love to know.....

Hi Nik,

4 to 1 and NO red color. The feeders are red and that is enough to attract the Hummers.

Hi Nik,
