You can buy little plastic inserts that fit into the hole. The hummers can slip their bill into the nectar but bees and other nectarivorous insects can access.  Talk to Steve and Regina Garr at Birds-I-View in Jefferson City Mo

Does anyone have a magic solution to keep bees away from hummingbird feeders.  In the past, I figured it was fair game for the bees as well as the hummers, but this year I am inundated with bees.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  Cheers!
