Why are mealworms so good for birds?
Sadly there is a high mortality rate in young birds. Many fledglings don’t make it past their first year. Indeed, this statistic is true for even some of our most well-loved garden birds. Studies have shown that only about 10-20% of young birds reach adulthood.
For Robin’s, the mortality rate in the first year of life is a staggering 72%. The good news is that so long as they are provided with a good diet and safe, secure habitat, most birds can live a full, long and happy life. The oldest known Robin lived to the grand old age of 8.5 years!
Our Mealworm Mixture is especially formulated to attract Robins as well as many other species of bird to your garden.
Studies have indicated that supplementary feeding of mealworms increased nesting success by 55% in some areas and supplementary feeding of mealworms at 66 colonies in London increased breeding success by 62%
Mealworms are full of protein which birds love. Our Mealworm Mixture is also packed with other sources of healthy fats and proteins which will give your wild birds diet a healthy boost all year round.
Healthy fats help build tissues, ligaments, plumage and muscle and add extra calories during leaner times of year. So make sure your feeders are regularly refilled to keep your feathered friends coming back for more.
