When should you feed Dried Mealworms to Wild Birds?
Birds adore Dried Mealworms as they provide a valuable and nutritious source of food. Mealworms are a favourite of garden birds all year round, though they are particularly popular in winter and summer when their energy requirements increase.
In summer wild birds are very active buildings nest & raising their young and in winter they need nutritious food to stay warm, Dried Mealworms provide the ideal food to give the birds at this time.
Many wild birds eat insects as part of their natural diet, so feeding Dried Mealworms mimics this behaviour.
Dried Mealworms can be fed as a treat or can be mixed in with other seed or suet pellets. Also if required you can soak the Dried Mealworms in water for 15 to 20 minutes to re-hydrate them, which will make them easier for the birds to digest. This is particularly useful for young birds and fledglings.
