Live Mealworms are one of the absolute best feeds. They are so much akin to what birds eat naturally that they boast many great benefits and provide birds with almost all of the nutrition they require. Being so similar to the natural food sources birds eat in the wild, live mealworms are also easy to eat digest and are loved by birds who find them to be tasty and to be packed with goodness.

Live Mealworms are moist so they help birds stay hydrated through the summer whilst providing essential protein, calories, energy. This means that they are beneficial all year around. During the breeding season, live mealworms are particularly beneficial since they are rich in all of the right nutrients and are easy to digest for fledgling. Due to their size and shape an added benefit of live mealworms is that they can be carried back to the nest for convenience of both adults and fledglings.

Here at Brinvale bird foods, we offer a range of pack sizes as well as free next day delivery. The live mealworms will keep for several weeks if stored in the correct conditions.
