|How do you get rid of ants from Hummingbird feeders.

|To prevent ants from competing with your hummingbirds for the sugar water, try placing an "ant moat" on top of the feeders. Moats come in different shapes and sizes. Simply fill the moat with water and hang it on top of the feeder. Ants cant swim, so they wont be able to reach the feeder. Periodically clean debris out of the moat so the ants dont create an ant bridge to the feeder over their dead comrades.
