Nectar Fortress™ is an ant-repelling clear gel. Simply draw a line of Nectar Fortress gel across any paths ants might use to get to your feeder. Made from food-based ingredients, it repels ants, but is safe for use around children, birds, and pets. It takes less than 1/8 of a teaspoon per feeder to control ants! It is also weatherproof so one application lasts the whole season. It can be used for protecting any outdoor area from ants, such as patio tables, bluebird houses, beehives, and hanging plants. It's one line ants refuse to cross!

Nectar Fortress is safe for these reasons:

  • It is not sticky, tacky, or adhesive in any way.
  • It does not contain petroleum products, including oil, waxes, or grease
  • It is made entirely from food-based materials.


Nectar Fortress is made almost entirely of a fatty acid, which birds naturally secrete to preen and condition their feathers. Oleic acid, also called omega-9, is one of the major fatty acids secreted from a bird's preeening gland (uropygial gland). In the unlikely event a bird were to come in contact with the product, it is part of what birds already use to condition their feathers.
