Live mealworms for birds
Mealworms are our best selling live food. The number one choice for feeding wild birds. They are the larvae of the Flour Beetle. A native British insect which eats flour, meal, grain and other related crops. Their bodies are made up of over 48% crude protein and 40% fat. Consequently they make an excellent proven food for all insect eating garden birds.
Best fed either scattered on a table of from a mealworm feeder
If you wish to store live mealworms for the long haul (2-3 months) we recommend placing them in the refrigerator in small deli-cups or smooth sided plastic containers. Be sure to keep them between 40-50 F and add a tiny bit of bedding like oats or bran in the containers.
For short-term keeping, we suggest placing them in the same containers but kept at room temperature between 65-70 F. This will ensure the worms are still active yet not growing at such a rapid rate that they get too large to be fed off.
