Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by No Longer Ant Feeder! Got 3 of these & put them up about January 2015. NO ants turning off hummingbirds from 3 feeders anymore. These ant barriers did what I wanted. A possible negative: it's not exactly easy to see if water/liquid is dried up. I have not heard one complaint from hummingbirds! February 16, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exactly what I wanted. I had wanted this item for a while since I saw this at the First Nature web-site...but it cost more and the shipping was quite high. Very glad to be able to order from Home Depot for slightly less...but the icing on the cake was that I could pick it up at my local Home Depot without any shipping I was able to get two for what I would have paid otherwise. The ant barrier itself is not wide across but it is deep enough so I like that...and it's a bright red...but also slightly from a slight distance I can tell if there is still water in it or if it needs filling. Hot weather will evaporate the water so be prepared to keep it filled. And I've seen hummingbirds drink the fresh water (not sugar water) from be prepared to keep it clean for the health of the birds. It does NOT come with an S hook to hang it...but the description stated that so I got something as an additional purchase when ready to use problem with that as S hooks are cheap and Home Depot has those in-store. Haven't had it long enough yet to know if the red color of the plastic fades with weathering. The hummingbird feeders that have one of these do not have ants so it must work...otherwise the ants would be on the feeders. June 4, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great This is third one of these that I have purchased. They work great, and they last. I have had the other two for a couple of years now, and the plastic has held up very well. Just attach a couple of "s" hooks and you are good to go. March 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent solution and cheap We've had our ant barrier up for 4 years now, and have had no problem with ants in our hummingbird feeder since. We had tried spraying the ground and even covering the shepard hook holder with Vaseline. Nothing worked until this little barrier. Wonderful and easy to put onto any hummingbird feeder!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Keeps ants out of feeder This barrier was just what I needed to keep ants out of my hummingbird feeder. Would be handy if it came with S hooks to attach it to the feeder but they are cheap and easy to obtain so no big deal. July 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NO MORE ANTS! Great product, simple to use and reasonably priced. June 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I like the product because it is easy to use. Feeding humming birds can be difficult, but the ant catcher does the trick. May 20, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by better then my home-made one's For years I've had trouble with ants getting into my HB feeders, then a couple years ago I read about using a "moat". I made one for each feeder and that was the end of that. Hadn't seen any commercially available until I spotted these. I quickly bought a couple, haven't used yet but know they will work from past experience. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is for the price I think they could supply the hanging hooks.
