In desperation, I wrapped the bottom 2í or so of the poles on which there were hummer feeders with the blue tape thatís sold for edging when youíre painting - sticky side out. It worked wonderfully (although the sight of the blue tape dotted with tiny dead bodies wasnít very lovely) so I applied more tape this year. I think this is the solution! > Maeve Kim > Jericho Center >
