Product Details

Mealworms (Tenebrio molitor) are our best selling live food, and 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 making them an excellent, proven food for all insect eating garden birds.

The 200g quantity is supplied in a tub, whereas the 500g, 1kg and 2kgs are sent out in a bag with newspaper to stop the mealworms from overheating (within a box for protection).  All live mealworms are sent in bran which is their food source.

We can now supply a 1kg Live Mealworm Bat Pack! These 1kg bags of live mealworms contain unprinted newspaper - as ink is toxic to bats.


How to store: Mealworms can easily be stored in a garage or utility room because they are clean and odourless. They keep well at room temperature. Should you wish to store them for longer you can transfer them to the warmest part of your fridge, away from the icebox.

Please Note: all live foods are sent by First Class Royal Mail, these are not available for collection at the farm. They may therefore take 3-5 working days and will arrive separately from the rest of your order. Orders received before 11.00am on Monday-Thursday will be dispatched on the same day. Orders received on a Friday-Sunday will be dispatched on the following Monday.

With apologies 2kg quantities are temporarily unavailable due to exceptionally high demand.

Good service with a quality item. I purchased waxworms as well as the mealworm as bird food for myself and a friend. Whilst the waxworms are happy to just mosey about, the mealworm seem to be intelligent, ninja, puzzle solving insects which seem to escape whatever feeder I've put them in. Cannot climb smooth surfaces, mine can. Polycarbonate, plastic and glass. I'm having more fun thinking of ways to keep them in, fortunately the birds are getting them before they get too far. Would I reccomend the product, yes. Are they more intelligent than me, to be seen.

Ordering these for the third year - began with 500g and now 1KG - a lot of worms for the money [and not hard to look after]. Feeder attached to window has almost continuous stream of blue tits, great tits, robin and blackbird in the nesting season...

These are much cheaper than buying them in individual tubs from pet stores. My garden birds won't touch dried meal worms now. I divide them into smaller plastic tubs with air holes that I have collected when I have bought smaller quantities from reptile shops. I add bran (bought form pet shop) and few pieces of egg box, the meal worms like to crawl around and shelter in these. Every week or so I add small pieces of raw potato or carrot for them to eat. I can then keep them in my shed for up to about 3 weeks depending on time of year and the speed the birds are eating them. In spring when they are feeding young they obviously go much quicker. Prompt delivery as stated on site.
