Ant Moat 3" x 6" h Color: Black
Not used as ant moat.
I ordered 3 in the spring for my hummingbird feeders. To avoid the job of refilling the moats or emptying them frequently to keep the mosquito population down I used them a bit differently. I hung them upside down and smeared Vaseline on the inside of the umbrella. Voila! Ants didn't bother my feeders and I never had to bother with the umbrellas for the rest of the season. I brought them in this month and hand washed them and will set them up the same way next year.

Why didn't we buy these sooner?
They really work! Not only do they keep away the ants but we have also seen other birds drinking out of them. And they are cute. Great product.

When I put my hummingbird feeder out this year, I couldn't find my little umbrella ant moat I'd been using for several years. The ants moved in immediately! I ordered another ant moat, and now the ants are gone and the hummingbirds are happy. So am I. It really works!

Cannot wait to use this in the spring in PA
I have battled ants in my hummer feeders for years. I hope this item will deter them from spoiling the nectar for the birds. Strong design and good quality.
