feeders are made from recycled
Original LIMU bottles. These
bottles originally contained a liquid food supplement that our
drinks to boost our Immune system and overall health.
Instead of throwing the bottles into the trash we decided to
recycle them into Hummingbird Feeders. We contracted with
local DFW Metroplex artisans to create the art work on the
bottles using a special glass paint. Each artist was given
the freedom to create their own design making each bottle
A clear coat sealant was then applied to their art work
making the artwork dishwasher safe and preventing the design
from being scratched off.
A hook is attached
to the bottle using a special glass adhesive that cures in the sun
and will not come off. The bottles are then wrapped with
The base for the
Hummingbird Feeder comes from Poteet, Texas and the copper wire is
from Storm Copper Components, Co. in Decatur Tennessee.

Also, here are a
few additional bits of information to make your adventure into
hummingbird watching more enjoyable.
IN EXTREME HEAT (As in August in Texas)
1) Try to keep your Hummingbird Feeder out of the direct sun.
Because the sun causes a pressure to build up in the bottle that
forces more of the Nectar into the Feeder Base, which causes the
Nectar to bubble up out of the Feeder holes. The result is that
you have bees and wasps coming to the Feeder and that causes the
Hummingbirds to stay away. This also will cause you to find ants
that have gotten into the bottle through the base and drown, but
donít worry the drowned ants donít brother the Hummingbirds.
2) Try to change the Nectar every week to 10 days unless the
Hummingbirds drink most of the Nectar. Anytime longer than that
and the Nectar may sour and the Hummingbirds will stay away.
