The bee guards do work on the Perky Pet pinch-waist glass hummingbird feeder (203CP), but there is one hiccup the fit around the stem of the feeder flower could be a tighter fit as they have a tenancy to slip off easy when the bottom stem flower base is put back together after cleaning or when the feeder may be tipped to far to one side. That is why I gave it a 4 out 5 stars rating, hope this review helps…

We were having a problem with lots of bees swarming our hummingbird feeders. These bee guards solved the problem. There were so many bees we couldn’t go out in the yard. With the bee guards, the bees could not get to the nectar and they moved on.
Tthese little gems are O.K. and do work well to keep bees of most kinds out of the nectar; however, there is just no humane way to rid one’s yard of bees. Even though bees are a pain and create a problem for some hummingbirds these guards manage to keep the bees at bay. Our hummers just look at the bees gathered around the guards and laugh at them while eating the nectar. Typical of most predators the bees attempt to chase the birds but success falls to the birds.One minor problem with the guards is that some insects are small enough to enter the mesh but too stupid to figure a way out and thusly meet their demise. When cleaning the mesh of the guards be sure to clean the inside as well.
