One part white sugar to four parts boiling water
No food coloring or dye needed.
Change every few days as it will ferment and attract insects.
I had to change out the feeders the other day - it was snowing and cold.
The feeders had three inches of snow on them and the hummers where asking for food.
I made up a batch and put it out.
The hummers were there straight away, wasting no time.
The feeders were busy all day while it dumped 8 inches of snow.
The snow, gone within 24 hours!
The hummers are busy defending the feeders which means they are nesting near by!
