Dried mealworms are a fantastic source of energy for insectivorous wild birds such as Robins, Wrens, Tits, Blackbirds and Song Thrushes. None of these popular visitors to your garden will be able to resist a bowl of mealworms on the bird table.
And it’s not just the birds that love a mealworm - they're popular among hedgehogs, too! Adults and baby hedgehogs benefit from the high protein and energy they can get from dried mealworms, especially in the winter months. Although, we recommend feeding to hedgehogs in moderation and only as an occasional treat.
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 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.
Ivel Valley is one of the only places online where you can buy dried mealworms in bulk. With our 12.55kg box you get the best value for money and a box of worms that will store well and keep your garden birds fed for a long time!
How To Store Your Mealworms
Dried mealworms should be stored in a cool dry location. Mealworms that are stored in this way can last months without spoiling.
