Nektar-Plus Humm Nectar 800g. Nectar concentrate for hummers and other nectar-feeding birds

Carefully composed and balanced formula of vital ingredients including:

  • Carbohydrates
  • Protein
  • Vitamins
  • Macro and Trace Elements
In their natural surroundings the main source of nourishment for these species is nectar and for some small insects. That is why the carbohydrates in NEKTAR-PLUS have been composed to copy nectar and provide the bird's basal metabolism with the necessary energy. In the main the essential protein is already in its digested form, that is sophisticated amino acids in the natural L form, plus bee pollen. 18 indispensable amino acids are included in NEKTAR-PLUS to make sure the supply of protein is immediately available to the body. Vitamins and interrelating minerals have been added to the formula because animals can synthesize no minerals and only a few vitamins. Their diets must contain both to ensure smooth running of the metabolic machinery.

This nutritious powder must simply be mixed with lukewarm water to provide a complete diet for good health and condition.

In addition to providing a complete diet for hummers, sun birds, lorikeets and various other nectar-feeding species of birds, NEKTAR-PLUS ensures that butterflies and other valuable insects get an all-year-round supply of vital nutrients. Click here for complete product details in PDF format.

PREPARING:
NEKTAR-PLUS offers you an extremely simple method of giving your bird an excellent substitute for nectar.
Dosage:
In Gram 13g NEKTAR-PLUS to 100ml lukewarm (30degrees C) water
In Millilitre 18ml NEKTAR-PLUS to 100ml lukewarm (30degrees C) water OR 1 part NEKTAR- PLUS to 5.5 equal parts water
A measuring beaker holding 30ml is enclosed with the 800g and 1500g jars of NEKTAR-PLUS for easy dosing.
Slowly add the NEKTAR-PLUS powder to the lukewarm water stirring constantly to dissolve. Do not use a mixer or whisk as this could destroy the vitamins. Important: Only absolutely germ-free water should be used to make up the NEKTAR-PLUS solution. This is particularly important in tropical and subtropical areas. If in doubt about the quality of the water, boil it first then allow to cool to lukewarm.
A solution of 13g NEKTAR-PLUS to 100ml water is enough for the daily needs of 2-3 humming birds or sunbirds. Please note that an increase in the dose of NEKTAR-PLUS could lead to a deterioration in your bird's health in the long run.
