Nektar-Plus Humm Nectar 1500g.
- Complete diet for hummingbirds, sunbirds, small lorikeets,
butterflies, and other nectar-eating animals
- Powder concentrate, just mix with water
- Successfully used in zoos, wildlife parks, and botanical gardens
Nekton-Nektar-Plus is a complete and balanced diet for hummingbirds,
sunbirds, and small lorikeets. It consists of all the necessary
carbohydrates, protein, fats, vitamins, and minerals these animals need to
live full and healthy lives. Most of the protein in Nektar-Plus is in its
already digested form, which is a requirement for nectar-eating birds.
Nektar-Plus is in a convenient and stable powder form and is easily mixed
with water. Nektar-Plus has been successfully used in zoos, botanical
gardens, and wildlife parks for decades. It is the go-to preparation for
hummingbird rehabbers as well.
Nekton-Nektar-Plus should be used with two of our othe products for
optimal results. We recommend our Nectar-Feeder because it filters out light
up to 520nm and prevents UV rays from damaging the delicate components of
Nektar-Plus. The feeder is also sloped, allowing every last drop to be used;
never feed Nektar-Plus in an open bowl, as it will contaminate birds'
feathers. Ideally, Nektar-Plus should be made fresh twice daily, but this
isn't very convenient for the bird keeper. Using our sterilizing agent Desi-
Plus, Nektar-Plus will keep longer, allowing the birds to be fed only once a
day. The method is simple, just soak your feeders and other animal feeding
equipment in Desi-Plus for at least two hours, and drip dry (no wiping
needed) to enjoy germ-free feeding equipment. Germ-free hummingbird feeders
keep these beautiful birds from unnecessarily suffering from inflamed
stomach or intestines, or fungus infections.
Be sure to read the enclosed literature that comes with Nektar-Plus,
there is quite a bit of useful information for feeding other types of
animals with Nektar-Plus, including butterflies!
Decades of use in zoos, wild-life rehabilitation facilities, and
veterinary hospitals demonstrate a track record that is second to none in
the pet industry. Nekton supplements set themselves apart from other
offerings due to the quality of the raw materials used in their production
and, more importantly, the proportion of these materials to one another in
