We don't know much about bees or the feeder, but we do know bees like sweet stuff so maybe that is why they are at the feeder?
We have six, one quart humming bird feeders on our patio. We have tons of hummingbirds, but I've never seen the bees take it over. Way cool. Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop. Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. Big hug to you both and lots of lovies to Miss Lucy. ♥
That is a lot of bees. We get one sometimes. One time, the hummingbird stabbed it with his beak and it was stuck on it for a few days.
Kathe I had that very same experience a few years ago. Oh boy what a shock we had when w saw it. We literally got a 10' pole to knocked the feeder to the ground. It was covered. I had the exact feeder as you. the next year I found a different feeder at Wal-Mart. I like it much better. Vat is glass, neck is wider and easier to clean, it does not have they yellow like flower area for feeding. Instead it has tiny slits. This year I have had a few bees tried unsuccessfully to sip. The hummers dive bomb them. Also earlier this year I discovered what this behavior means evidently when the hive is too crowed some bees are forced out. I will send you an email with a picture of my feederHugs Cecilia
That's a new one on me!
The bees have taken over the feeder.
The swarm heheh!Have a beetastic safe week 😷😷😷
I don't think the hummers will like those intruders!
