Here is some info I posted to this Same Question that was asked on one of the other threads here.Its from the Hummingbird website concerning keeping the bees away ,hope its of some help to you!
We have two possible solutions.
Try spraying the ports of your feeder with a spray vegetable oil (like Pam). Don't use the butter flavored -- it makes a mess.
Try using bee-resistant feeders with ports so small that bees can't get into them. Bees almost always give up on these feeders unless nectar is accidentally splashed on the surface of the feeder. So always wipe them clean.
