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.

    So-so design, but it works I looked up reviews for this product after I bought one, tried to fill it, and gasped at the sight of sugar water leaked all over my kitchen counters. At first glance, one might think this feeder was designed very poorly.In reality, the proper way of using this product probably needs a bit more instruction than the little scrap of paper it came with. There are several reasons why other reviewers encountered excessive leaking.Problem 1: You might not have all the pieces screwed on tight enough. The red base is made of a top and bottom, which screw apart. If these aren’t screwed together all the way, then a vacuum can’t form. Same with screwing the clear nectar holder onto the red base, or screwing the lid on top of the clear part. Creating a vacuum is essential to proper liquid dispensing.Problem 2: You might not have pushed the clear part DOWN into the red base, which is its “closed” position. If these two pieces are screwed together, but you have the clear part pulled UP, then it’s open, and as soon as you try to put nectar in it, the liquid will stream out of each of the four flowers like a pretty little fountain. You must have the clear part pushed down before filling.Problem 3: You might not have put the lid on right away after filling. This is what I did. I’d made a sugar water concoction out of hot water and sugar, and thought it would be best to let it cool before putting the lid on. I left the feeder filled, with the lid off, and came back an hour later to find my kitchen deluged (and sticky!). It’s imperative to put the lid back on top as soon as you fill the feeder with nectar, in order to create a proper vacuum, which helps regulate the amount of liquid dispensed.After learning this the hard way, I first cooled my nectar in the fridge before filling the feeder, then tried it again, putting the lid on tightly right after filling the feeder, and then popping the clear part back “UP” to allow the liquid to flow to the flowers. No spilling! No fountains! Perfect vacuum created, no silicone sealer necessary.I only give this product 4 stars, instead of 5, because using it is not intuitive, and also because one of the yellow flowers broke during shipping. I’m currently trying to contact the company that makes Perky Pet to see if they’ll send me a replacement.Edit: Well, the company wasn’t able to help me fix just the yellow flower part, so they are actually sending me a replacement unit, free of charge. This is above and beyond my expectations. I think that their customer service levels alone deserve them an additional star. Thank you, Woodstream!

    Great design… I’m not a rocket scientist but after less than 1 minute of disassembling/reassembling the unit I understood how it worked. I then filled it and put it out… three weeks later I have refilled it twice and love the design. The people who have had isssues must not have filled it correctly… I’m assuming they don’t realizes it pulls up/down to create a vacuum. Its pretty simple… make sure everythings tight; add room temperature mixture; hang the feeder and pull the bottom down to creat the vacuum . A+++++
