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.


What do Brinvale offer?

We do offer sizes from 100g all the way up to 4kg. If you the 2kg bag or more, this will quality for free delivery

We also do live mealworms if they are something you would prefer in sizes of 500g, 1kg and 2kg.

How to feed Dried Mealworms and get the most out of them:
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.
Suitable for feeding from: This can be fed from a Specialised Mealworm Feeder, Bird Table or a Ground Feeder Tray
