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.Mealworms are the larvae of the native British Yellow Mealworm Beetle - the adult beetles are shiny dark-brown or black - their larvae are honey-yellow.Mealworm beetles (and larvae) are not exactly the farmers best friend as they are post-harvest pests which will feed on stored grain or cereals. However, to our feathered friends, they are a tasty treat packed with protein and healthy fats.Dried mealworms retain all this protein and fat but without the wriggle! They are also easier to store than their live counterparts!We supply our mealworms in handy re-sealable bags which should be stored in a cool dry location.
Sprinkle as they are or rehydrate by soaking in warm water for a few minutes.
Although our 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.
