sandard screening for bee guard
I use the Schrodt hummingbird feeders.
I have some small bees that can get through the gap between the glass and the brass plate. I actually saw one climb through the feeder hole as well!
I am planning to make bee guards out of standard aluminum screen(used on screen windows and doors), but someone said that their bills may not fit.
Any thoughts on bill size or ideas on how to guard these feeders?
PS I contacted Schrodt company and they said they are getting similar feedback, but don't have a solution.
