How do you BEE proof a hummingbird feeder?

Well, we have the "rain proof" question, but rain is hardly an issue here in the Sonoran Desert. Thirsty bees on the other hand are an issue and everyday I come home to dozens of drowned bees in my hummer feeder. Well, technically its an oriole feeder, but the hummers (and a pair of gila woodpeckers) don't seem to care much about semantics.

In any case, it's a little gross and I'm sure my not-orioles that use the feeder don't particularly care for it and I don't like having to replace the water every 12 hours!
