What time of year do you stop putting out food for hummingbirds?

I live in Oklahoma and have been feeding hummingbirds all summer. They are still hanging out, and we’re getting into fall. When should I stop putting out food so they will go south, or do I have to stop at all?
Thanks–I just put up another 16oz or so of food, but I’ll take it down after they finish that off. We are just now getting colder weather, so maybe that will send them along.

well its strange you still have them there, usually they’ve all gone to the south. This is the time i normally i take mine down.

Run the feeder’s reservoir through a sanitizing dis
