Dried mealworms are a fantastic source of energy for insectivorous wild birds such as Robins, Wrens, Tits, Blackbirds and Song Thrushes. None of these popular visitors to your garden will be able to resist a bowl of mealworms on the bird table.
And its not just the birds that love a mealworm - they're popular among hedgehogs, too! Adults and baby hedgehogs benefit from the high protein and energy they can get from dried mealworms, especially in the winter months.
Mealworms are the larvae of the Yellow Mealworm Beetle - the adult beetles are shiny dark-brown or black - their larvae are honey-yellow. Dried mealworms retain all this protein and fat but without the wriggle! They are also easier to store than their live counterparts!
Dried mealworms should be stored in a cool dry location.
