Detourant Ant Moat for Hummingbird Feeders
Clever moat, clever name... Detour - Ant
The Detourant works differently by slowing or even eliminating evaporation. Wind causing spillage, and generally dry, hot days of summer contribute to emptying ant moats quickly. Without water, they're useless and sugar ants will prevail.
Sans any chemicals, water remains inside the moat longer via inner reservoir. Turn upside down to fill, slowly turn upright and hang. Feeder attaches to bottom ring of Detourant with enclosed s-hook. May be emptied in the same fashion for winter storage.
Ant Moats are also ideal for oriole and butterfly nectar, and fruit & jelly feeders too. Save the goods for birds... not ants!

A better ant moat.
This ant mote is expensive, but effective. The main advantage is that the cover keeps the water from accumulating a lot of dust and debris. Since it is one-piece it is difficult to do anything but rinse the water out to change it.
