    i need to ask a question for it to show? how many hummingbird feeders do you have?

    3 feeders - well maintained and shaded.
    I boil 4 parts of water and 1 part sugar to kill the bacteria.
    Let it cool and then put in a clean feeder. I prefer keeping the feeder out of the hot sun.
    If bees, wasp or any other insect gets in the food, I discard it and start again.
    If the food hangs a long time it can get sour. The water will loose it's clear look and get a bit cloudy.
    Thanks for feeding these wonderful creatures.
    1 part sugar to 4 parts water

    i just commented on this answer. i worry about humming bird feeders hung in hot spots. i'm afraid the little birds will sip and boil.
