Does anyone have a solution for my problem? Here it is: Okay, so i have two bright red hummingbird feeders, not the ones below. We haven’t had a problem with bees, until now. Lately my neighbor cut down all of his flowering plants, so the bees have decided to take a visit over here. The first day there was only a few buzzing around my feeder closer to the ground, but then a couple of hours later there was a whole swarm, probably 30 bees all over the feeder! So then, i took the feeder inside, and of course all of the bees were angry. So they went to the other feeder, same problem. Of course, i was so mad that i couldn’t put out my hummingbird feeders. By the way, i like bees, and i don’t have a problem with them, except when they are on my hummers feeders and right by my door swarming. Anyways, i tried putting these other two feeders i had out, picture below. As you can see this feeder is pink, dark red, and green. Which i didn’t realize until now that the hummers only like bright red feeders like my other ones. So, i left the green ones out for a few days and no hummers came which really annoyed me after having seen a lot of them at my other feeders. So i thought i found a solution by putting out the green feeders, but turns out i didn’t. So now with the green ones there weren’t any bees, but their weren’t any hummers either. So now i don’t know what to do, and I’m asking y’all for help. Any suggestions?
