Mealworms for Birds

Our British-bred mealworms will give your garden birds the vital nutrients they need to flourish.

Mealworms can be easily fed to birds; just add them to a shallow dish, making sure to place them in clear view of visiting birds.

The live mealworms and wax worms we supply come in a range of tub and feeding sizes. We also offer dried mealworms if you'd prefer not to deal with live, wriggling worms! These freeze-dried worms make a great addition to our bird seed mixes (and delivery is free if your order includes at least one seed mix).

Mealworms Are a Rich Source of Protein, Fibre and Fats

Both mealworms and wax worms are packed full of essential nutrients that are key for muscle development in birds.

They're extremely beneficial for British bird populations, serving as a good source of water and protein for for adult birds and fledglings alike.

Wild birds who nest in gardens often lay fewer eggs and fledge fewer young than those living in natural woodland sites - this is likely due to the lack of mature trees, which means that garden birds can't find the insects they need to feed their young. However, you can help by providing some juicy worms of your own for the birds to feast on!

Mealworm FAQs

  • What type of bird feeder should I use for mealworms?
  • Mealworms - especially live mealworms - should be placed in unobstructed dishes that give the birds a clear view of their food.

    Luckily, we offer a selection of specially-designed mealworm feeders along with an array of feeding stations so you can easily provide mealworms for your garden birds.

  • What birds eat mealworms?
  • Robins love to eat mealworms. They are also a great food choice for blackbirds, thrushes and pied wagtails.

  • Are live mealworms better than dried?
  • Live mealworms are better for baby birds because there's more moisture in a live mealworm and chicks need as much water as they can get. For this reason, we recommend using live mealworms during fledgling season (i.e. spring and summer).

    At other times of year, it doesn't make much difference whether you use live mealworms or dried mealworms. One benefit of our freeze-dried mealworms is that they can be added to our seed mixes for extra nutrition.
