Hummingbird Vineyard Nectarguard Feeders
Welcome to Hummingbird Vineyard Inc., home of NectarGUARD©, the worlds’ most advanced Feeders and Kits!
What is the NectarGUARD advantage? It's all about keeping nectar fresh and cool so your Hummies stay healthy!
Why does nectar spoil so quickly?
Everyone knows we seal our food instead of leave it stand open because it stays fresh longer! But hummingbird feeders are not sealed and that's why nectar goes bad so fast! All "other" hummingbird feeders have open holes for them to feed through, but these holes are like open doors that allow air to flow freely in and out of the nectar chamber! That air contains Oxygen which promotes Bacteria and germs to spoil the nectar making Hummies sick (or even die). These same feeding holes (open doors) allow nectar to drip out which attracts ants, bees, wasps, bears and other uninvited guests to the feeder!
We confronted these problems and used our engineering background to solve them. How? We shut the front door!
NectarGUARD technology virtually eliminates airflow through the nectar chamber with a brilliant one-way Feeding Valve hidden inside the flower that opens when the hummingbird inserts its beak to feed, and then closes again when they leave! Viola!
NectarGUARD technology has literally “shut the front door” to the problems with feeders! The Feeding Valve promotes a lack of oxygen in the nectar chamber that starves bacteria which makes nectar last much longer, helping your Hummies stay healthy and happy (and a lot less cleaning and maintenance for you). Yay!
NectarGUARD is truly the world’s first ”HUMMINGBIRD’S ONLY” hummingbird feeder because only a hummingbirds beak can open the Feeding Valve so uninvited guests won’t hang around after they crash your party!
But wait… there’s more!
NectarGUARD technology also reduces the harmful effects of heat from the sun with a second valve hidden inside the flower’s stem. This Vent Valve purges hot air from inside the nectar chamber helping to keep the nectar cooler so your hummingbirds don’t burn their little tongues sipping too-hot nectar on a hot sunny day. Awe… cute! Who knew?
So why wait? Choose one of our colorful, over-engineered, ready-to-hang NectarGUARD Feeders or choose a NectarGUARD KIT and recycle your own fun bottles into the word's most advanced feeder.
The NectarGuard Difference
The NectarGuard system keeps the nectar in your feeder fresher for longer. A unique valve inside of the feeding flower keeps and airtight seal, like putting a cap on your drink instead of leaving it open all day. The valve can only be opened by the hummingbirds beak when they go to feed, and when the bird leaves the valve closes again, reducing contamination from oxygen and slowing bacteria growth. All you really need to know is that your birds will have tastier, healthier nectar and you will have to deal with less maintenance of your feeder. Its a win-win!
