Spilled Hummingbird Nectar Left Behind Awful Smelling Soil – How can I Fix This?!

Zone 07946 | joanknj added on July 12, 2017 | Answered

Squirrels got to my hummingbird feeders and spilled a lot of nectar this spring. The grass beneath the feeder is dead now and the mud left behind smells horrendous. We removed a top layer of it but that hasn't helped. What has happened? Some kind of fermentatioin/yeast? How can we fix this? It's right by our deck and is ruining the summer. We don't need grass but we do need not to have this smell.

Hummingbird Nectar is generally sugar and water.
Flush the area with water to clear the area.
