How do I stop my Hummingbird feeders from leaking?

I have a glass blown hummingbird feeder that hangs upside down and it won’t stop leaking are there any tricks to keep the water from leaking?

When you put the stopper in the bottom make sure the tube comes up through the top of the stopper(inside the glass globe) That should work.
Hopefully you aren’t just using water, and if you are using sugar water you are boiling it first.

If the Humming Bird feeder is not defective then, it should not leak, just make sure the top is tight so it can’t suck air. I allowed some to hang out all Winter once and had to discard some of them for leaking because they had cracked in the cold weather.
