[CT Birds] hummingbird & bee balm question

After planting a "hummingbird garden 3 yrs. ago (mostly bee balm), it has  
now matured and I have been having a female hummingbird (maybe more than 
one)  coming to it daily.  My question is...Does the bee balm nectar 
"rejuvenate"  daily?  Like how many times can a hummingbird visit a flower and still 
get  nourishment from it?  Should one "dead head" the bee balm in order to  
encourage new growths?  
Any advice would be appreciated.
