A.

 

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE HUMMINGBIRD FEEDERS ARE CONSTRUCTED OF RECYCLED PLASTIC DECKING (TOP) AND PVC PIPE (BODY), ALL MADE IN THE USA.

 

TO CLEAN:

 

STEP 1 – TAKE OUT THE TWO JARS WITH COVERS AND CLEAN SEPARATELY.

 

STEP 2 – PLACE THE ENTIRE “ASSEMBLED” FEEDER, INCLUDING THE TOP, BODY AND WIRE INTO HOT SOAPY WATER.

 

STEP 3 – WASH THE TOP PIECE WITH A SCRUB BRUSH, RAG, ETC.

 

STEP 4 – WASH THE PAINTED BODY WITH A SOFT RAG, OR YOUR HAND. REMEMBER THE BODY (PVC PIPE) HAS 3 LAYERS OF PAINT. THE FIRST COAT IS AN INDUSTRIAL PRIMER. THE SECOND COAT IS THE HAND PAINTED ART WORK, AND THE LAST COAT IS AN ACRYLIC UV PROTECTIVE FINISH  FOR LONG LASTING BEAUTY.

 

STEP 5 – RINSE THE UNIT IN CLEAR WATER AND LET DRY FOR A FEW MINUTES.

 

STEP 6 – FILL THE JARS WITH NECTAR TO THE PLASTIC RIDGE

 

TO THE LOWER PLASTIC RIDGE APPROX. 1/2" FROM TOP OF JAR. INSERT THE JARS INTO THE FEEDER WITHOUT SPILLING ANY LIQUID.

 

STEP 7 – REPLACE THE FEEDER IN ITS SPECIAL PLACE AND CONTINUE WATCHING THOSE WONDERFUL HUMMINGBIRDS.

 

NOTE: IF YOU FILLED THE JARS TO THE PROPER LEVEL, AND DIDN’T SPILL ANY NECTOR, YOU WILL NEVER HAVE ANY PESKY ANTS OR BEES TO CONTEND WITH!
