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,

There's some extra feeder recipe info on "My Page". You're welcome to it.
