About Dried Mealworms

Mealworms are the larvae of the Yellow Mealworm Beetle - the adult beetles are shiny dark-brown or black - their larvae are honey-yellow. Dried mealworms retain all this protein and fat but without the wriggle! They are also easier to store than their live counterparts and much more affordable. 

How To Feed Dried Mealworms

​Sprinkle as they are or rehydrate by soaking in warm water for a few minutes. Although our dried mealworms are a year-round bird food, it is recommended during Spring & Summer time to soak them in warm water before feeding as adult birds may be feeding them to their young.

What British birds eat dried mealworms?

A variety of bird species enjoy dried mealworms as part of their diet. Some of the common birds that readily consume mealworms include Blue Tits, Great Tits, Robins, Blackbirds, Wrens, Nuthatches, Song Thrushes, Dunnocks, Sparrows, Woodpeckers, and Chaffinches.

How To Store Your Dried Mealworms

Dried mealworms should be stored in a cool dry location. Mealworms that are stored in this way can last months without spoiling. Our 3kg storage containers are ideal to store your mealworms in a secure, dry place.
