TikTokers Have A Warning About Using Glass Hummingbird Feeders This Summer

0 2

While TikTok creators inform their followers that glass hummingbird feeders are often responsible for harming your feathered friends because they may spoil quickly or grow mold, this can happen with any feeder. Additionally, glass is recommended to prevent nectar from fermenting rapidly. According to the Georgia State Department of Natural Resources, feeders with glass reservoirs have better insulation, which will help to keep them cooler than plastic feeders in the summer.

Some wildlife supply companies suggest using glass feeders rather than plastic to keep nectar at a lower temperature in hotter weather. Though several TikTok videos claim glass heats up faster because the light penetrates it, most plastic feeders are clear and would take in light and heat as well. While glass hummingbird feeders may not be as dangerous as TikToker’s have been warning, it’s still imperative to ensure that whatever feeder you’re using is cleaned regularly and that the nectar is checked and replaced every few days or every day, depending on the conditions.
