Why feed dried mealworms?
Dried mealworms for birds are a quick and easy way to feed the wildlife. They have an excellent source of protein which when breeding season comes is important, as chicks rely on nutrients that they can only get from insects.
Although these are dried, due to the process the mealworms are put through, they do not lose any of their protein or nutrients that they would offer, would they be alive. If soaked for 10-15 minutes the mealworms double in size which is thought to be easier for the fledglings and other birds to eat, and although when the worms are dried they only loose the moisture, so this is a great way to replenish them and get them pulp again.
How should I feed my mealworms?
We would recommend feeding mealworms from a specialised mealworm feeder, a bird table or even a ground feeding tray. Most birds will eat the mealworms so there will not be any waste.
