Sugar solution for hummingbirds is simple to make:
4 Cups Water
1 Cup Sugar
Bring the water to a boil and stir in the sugar. Boiling the water isn't to sterilize, but to create a solution. Let the mixture cool, then fill your hummingbird feeder. The ratio is always 4 to 1
so the recipe can easily be doubled or halved. Refrigerate the unused portion.
FASTER & EASIER!
Simply microwave 4 cups of water for 5 minutes, then add 1 cup of sugar! Allow to cool.
Hint: Keep your costs low! Storebrand (cane) sugar makes perfect hummingbird fuel.
Never use honey or raw (turbinado) sugar.
