Mealworms are an excellent source of protein and are extremely helpful for wild birds in the breeding season. This is because many chicks and fledglings rely on nutrients that can only be offered by insects.
These dried 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.
PLEASE NOTE: Although our next day free delivery is available on orders 10kg or more, the 2kg Pack of dried mealworms qualifies for FREE NEXT DELIVERY.
How to get the most out of your Dried Mealworms:
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.
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 fledglings to eat so could be a good thing to try around Spring into early Summer time to help progress the development of the newborn chicks.
