My Varmints

I feed the squirrels and the birds and the hummingbirds because I can. Hubby calls them my varmints. The business I work for is a lawn and garden and pet supply distributer so I can feed them for practically nothing.

The birds are greedy bastards and eat about one feeder full a day and they been pooping on the deck. Not the "thank you" I was expecting. I stopped filling the feeder everyday.

I got a hummingbird feeder the other day and the hummingbirds found the feeder the same day we put it up. They are so pretty.

I have only seen a squirrel running away one time. But we caught one in the act earlier today. He looks quite healthy.



I like my varmints.

If you should wish to make your own nectar solution, use 1 part white granulated cane sugar to 4 parts water.

The homemade nectar solution should be brought to a boil for 1 1/2 minutes and then let it cool down. Now you have a mixture much more similar to that of the flower nectar.

A hummingbird feeder must always remain extremely clean and as a result any hummingbird feeder should be easy to take apart and clean, because it should be washed frequently.

The hummingbird feeder can even be cleaned by running it through the dishwasher. Or you can use a diluted solution of bleach and water in which to clean it. Make sure the feeder is then rinsed extremely well.

We have a hummingbird feeder too, but I'm never lucky enough to see one. I love my "varmits" too! hahaha.
