Did you know that your hummingbirds need protein too?
Nectar from flowers and nectar feeders are a great source of carbohydrates, giving hummingbirds the energy they need to meet their high metabolic demands. It's what makes them go! However, hummingbirds cannot survive on nectar alone. They rely on various insects and insect eggs for all of their other nutritional needs, including protein.
Now you can provide your hummingbirds with a source of protein, in addition to nectar, with the Humm-Bug™ Hummingbird Protein Feeder! Simply place bananas, banana peels, or other fruit and vegetable peels in the feeder to attract delicious fruit flies for your hummingbirds!
