Yes Hazel. They are in direct sun.

I inspected the feeders and the screen one worked much better than the cheesecloth. The cheesecloth I think, was too loose and as you can see below, a hornet made his way into the port.

Here is the screening and other than a couple ants, it held up well today.

I going to see how much activity is out there for the rest of the day/evening. If not much happening, I may just take your advice and retire one of the feeders for the season.
