this might work: 1 gallon water, 4 cups granulated sugar…bring water to boil,when it reaches a boil add sugar and stir,boil an additional five minutes while stirring,remove from heat,cool,place in refrigerator till cold…fill your feeders,change every three or four days…enjoy watching your hummingbirds!!
