My Personal Experience with Nectar Guard Hummingbird Feeders
When bought and placed in, we haven’t has issues with wasps or bees, but we have earwigs getting into the feeders each night.
Initially, I has my doubts about it keeping earwigs out but it actually does! No earwigs! We use the 4 oz Hum Blossom feeders, and the nectar fits securely.
A hummingbird was drinking from the feeder within a few minutes of me putting it out with the nectar guards.
