Keep those pesky ants away from your hummingbird feeders! This ant guard helps ensure the birds (and not the ants) will enjoy the fresh nectar. The Perky-Pet AntGuard effectively repels ants from feeders and easily mounts in-line with hanging bird feeders. AntGuard begins working immediately and should stop all sweet-eating ant activity within 24 hours under optimal conditions. So how does it work? Ants are attracted to the sweet-tasting nectar inside your feeders. As ants forage for nectar and make their way down the hanging hook to the feeder . they enter the AntGuard. Inside is a disc containing a powerful ant repellent . Permethrin . which has been proven safe around birds . pets . and people when used as directed. Like the naturally derived pyrethrin . which originates from chrysanthemums and was the inspiration for this substance . it should be kept away from ponds . streams or other bodies of water due to aquatic organism risk. The disc containing the active ingredient is encased in a durable plastic dome . to keep it inaccessible to feeding birds. The plastic dome also protects it from rain . helping it to last longer so you can defend your feeders from ant invaders. Under normal conditions . AntGuard will provide a full season of ant control. To install AntGuard . extend the lower baffle of the dome. Then attach AntGuard below your hanging hook and above your hummingbird feeder.
