How To Attract Hummingbirds to Your GardenHow To Attract Hummingbirds to Your Garden
By patrob on April 15, 2012

Attract hummingbirds to your yard and garden by planting some of their favorite flowers and by hanging nectar feeders when blooms are not plentiful. In addition to nectar, hummingbirds consume large numbers of tiny insects, such as mosquitoes, aphids, and whiteflies.


Plant Red Flowers for the HummingbirdsPlant Red Flowers for the Hummingbirds
By Horntoad on January 1, 2012

Hummingbirds are highly attracted to the color red, which is why their feeders usually have red on them. See how many ways you can add red to your garden. Plant red flowers and paint a bird house or feeder red. How about painting flower pots red and using red in your garden art? Even wearing red clothing when working in the yard will attract them. The more red you can use, the better chance of catching the attention of a passing hummer.
