Dried mealworms for birds are an excellent source of protein and are extremely helpful for wild birds in the breeding season. This is because many chicks and fledgelings rely on nutrients that can only be offered by insects. Popular with wild birds all year round this worms will keep you birds
These mealworms have a really good shelf life and are easy to store. They are freeze-dried, a process which locks in all of the protein and nutrients that the mealworms would offer when alive.

The only thing that is lost in this drying process is the moisture that is offered by live mealworms but this can be replicated by soaking the dried worms in water before offering them on a bird table, the ground or from a specialised feeder. If you soak them for around 10-15 minutes in warm water they will easily double up in size! Although not necessary it is thought that it is easier for the newborns to eat so could be a good thing to try around spring into early summer time.
