Frequently Asked Questions:

Q. I’m new to Top Fill feeders, are there tips on filling for beginners?

A. Yes, follow the steps below.

Q. What criteria should I use when selecting a hummingbird feeder?

A. Make sure it is one that will be easy to clean and fill, especially since you will need to clean the feeder every few days. If you are worried about bees and wasps or ants invading the feeder, purchase a hummingbird feeder with bee guards or ant guards.

Q. How do I clean my hummingbird feeders?

A. Hummingbird feeders need to be cleaned every 1-2 weeks. Use hot water and a bottle brush, along with mild soap; be sure to rinse thoroughly.

The Perky-Pet cleaning mop is specifically designed for the purpose of cleaning hummingbird feeders, and is very convenient to use. This cleaning mop can also be used on seed feeders and oriole feeders for those small, tight spaces that are difficult to reach.

Q. What is the importance of providing water for hummingbirds?

A. Hummingbirds need fresh, clean water just as much as they need nectar. Hummingbirds stay healthy by using water not just for drinking, but also bathing, cleaning their feathers and to remove parasites. Waterers are better options than bird baths because they provide hummingbirds with fresh, clean water that prevents dirt and debris from contaminating it. In hotter climates or seasons, providing water for hummingbirds makes it easy for them to have access to a water source and retain their energy.

    Not defective, but instructions are vague This is my first hummingbird feeder I’ve owned, so I can’t compare it to any others. The instructions on the bottom of the feeder were very vague. However, after 5 minutes of my time, and through trial and error, I figured out the problem that some of the previous reviewers were having.1. The bottom half of the red base either was not tightened enough during the manufacturing process, or came loose during shipment. You need to tighten the bottom half of the base by screwing it clockwise – as there is a seam there and it will leak if not tight.2. MOST IMPORTANT: Keep the clear section pushed down until AFTER you fill it. (it needs to form a vacuum and it won’t if you pull on it during this step).3. Fill the clear section with nectar, and put the lid on quickly to form the VACUUM so it won’t leak out the holes.4. Hang it with the included small S-hook, and THEN carefully pull on the bottom of the feeder so the nectar can flow into the flower ports. BUT you still need to keep the feeder level; otherwise the nectar will flow out the flower port holes.Practice first by putting water in it and you’ll see what I mean.I can see where this will be very easy to clean, haven’t had to yet since I just recently received it, but I anticipate no problems with it at all. It’s been hanging up for 4 hours (as of the time I wrote this review), and I already saw a pair of hummingbirds stop by for nectar, so it must attract their attention. It’s a nice low budget (all plastic) feeder, the vine perches are a cute touch.

    Just Terrible!! We were looking for a wider, lower-profile hummer feeder that wouldn’t sway as wildly, as our area is quite windy. This looked the part. But BEWARE!! I don’t think the mfr. even tested this feeder! Within a single day, all the sugar water leaked out the bottom, creating exactly the sticky mess we’d hoped to avoid. Even when sitting on a level surface it did this. The problem seems to be a completely unnecessary two-piece construction for the red base, and a completely pointless foam plug at the bottom…BOTH of which leak horribly. Was able to glue together the two halves of the base, but there is no way to fix that foam plug.Don’t waste your money!

    Good enough to attract hummingbirds, but has some major flaws The biggest flaw of the Perky Pet hummingbird feeder is that it leaks if it’s not filled to the top to begin with or if the wind tips it, something that happens quite easily since it is a lightweight feeder. Made of thin plastic, it also shatters easily when dropped, as shown in this video. (I had my feeder for only a week before I lost it.) The included S hook is small and inadequate, so buy your own if you want to keep your feeder. And definitely consider an ant guard such as or learn how to construct your own. I do like the push/pull feature since it allows you to fill the feeder inside and then carry it outside without spilling. Just remember to pull down the base just before hanging, or the birds won’t get any food. Instructions are located on the sticker at the bottom of the feeder, although you really need to watch the company’s video to know what to do.To make your own nectar, combine 4 parts water to 1 part sugar, and boil to kill bacteria; other proportions can harm the tiny birds. Especially in hot weather, clean the feeder and replace the nectar twice a week. In milder weather, you still must replace it at least every seven days to minimize mold growth and fermentation.But yeah, the hummingbirds love it. And it’s inexpensive, so it’s a great gift for a child. This video shows you how the Perky Pet works and why I don’t like it. It also shows the hummingbirds visiting the feeder to show that the news is not all bad.– Debbie Lee Wesselmann
