I ran across this article about raccoons liking hummingbird nectar. If your nectar is being drained during the night it is probably the work of the raccoons.

I was checking the hummingbird feeders this morning and noticed that the smallest one was empty.
Needing just a little bit of nectar I whipped out my Sugar Shaker Nectar Maker (TM). I poured the sugar to the bottom line, added the water to the top line. Put the lid on and then shook it for 30 seconds.
It dawned on me the reason I like this product so much is that there is no measuring needed, no boiling needed, and above all for 6:30am…
There is NO THINKING NEEDED!!!
Here’s a cool video of a Ruby-throated Hummingbird drinking nectar from a Fire Pink Wildflower.
The Sugar Shaker Nectar Maker is an idea born straight out of a simple need… How can you get the correct sugar to water ratio when one is a solid (sugar) and the other a liquid (water) when making hummingbird nectar?
You may know that the correct ratio to make hummingbird nectar is 1 part sugar to 4 parts water. Even though it seems simple enough, I’ve notice while selling customers nectar that they look a little confused when I explain the mixture.
I thought if I simply created a container that had one line for the hummingbird sugar and one for the water all the confusion would go away. Since the hummingbird nectar must be mixed and the sugar must be completely dissolved I had to think of the easiest and fastest way to do that. The solution: shake it up!
I made our Sugar Shaker Nectar Maker leak proof and gave it an easy to pour top. The Sugar Shaker Nectar Maker is fast, easy to use, and easy to clean. It even has an internal grate in it to help break down the sugar as it is being shaken to make sure your hummingbird nectar solution is completely dissolved.
The best types of sugar to use are those found in your local wild bird stores or nature centers. They are finely ground sucrose, with no additives or dyes. Since the sugar is finely ground you can use cold water in the mix.
If you make too much nectar just close the lid on the Sugar Shaker Nectar Maker and place the container in the refrigerator.
The Sugar Shaker Nectar Maker is fast, easy, clean ,and reusable. Simply the easiest way to make your hummingbird nectar. Buy it online or find a local retailer today.
