[Tweeters] Hummingbird Feeder That does not attract bees

We have had what appear to be honey bees- lots of them- take over our hummer feeders this and the past few years. The adults avoid the feeders when bees are near or on them. Young hummers- at times-will feed anyway. I am not sure if this puts them at risk for injury.
However, my wife, who loves hummingbirds and tends the feeders, found a “solution”-this type of feeder- that bees 🐝 don’t use.
It seems to have solved the problem.
Hope this helps some of you that have had this situation.
