How Honey Harms Hummingbirds

If you enjoy hummingbirds and wish to feed them, I have an extremely important reminder for you.  You should never make your nectar solution using honey!  Here is a brief explanation as to why you must not do this. 

The honey will spoil quite rapidly because it ferments and this cause a deadly bacterium to form.  No matter what you may have heard before, honey is not "more natural" than the cane sugar that is sold as white sugar. Honey has been chemically altered by honey bees: it consist of flower nectar and whatever ever else the honey bee ingested, digested, and spit back out again. Honey is nothing like the sucrose found in flower nectar and white sugar.
