    Gone in a flash ! Every bird likes these. One observation, they are so expensive. They had better reduce in price when we humans start to eat them

    I'd prefer to give the birds live mealworms - but they are expensive. These still go down well and I mix them up with seeds and suet pellets. Sometimes I also soak them in water first.

    Great edition to feeding during breeding season. I didn’t want to store live meal worms so followed the advice of soaking them for 30 minutes in warm water and they went very quickly

    I use these mainly in the spring, or when the weather is extremely cold. The birds love them, but I have to try and hide them from the crows and magpies.

    I bought these for the two robin families nesting in our garden but the blackbirds think they are for them! Very popular when mixed with the seed in the feeder.

    Lovely fresh, good quality mealworms, a firm favourite with the birds that visit my garden. Excellent service, arrived promptly. Recyclable plastic packaging would be good, but at least not in more packaging than necessary and not in a large hard plastic tub.

    Excellent service and delivery from Vine House Farm as usual. I understand some profits go to Wildlife Charity which is why I buy from them. The 1kg mealworms were a bit more expensive than some other places I can buy locally. Enjoyed by my Blackbirds and Robins!

    Dried mealworms good value compared to local price and very popular with starlings. Perhaps too much so. I wish they would give other birds a look in !

    much, much better than the dried mealworms I got from another retailer (which were largely 'dust') and the robins, in particular, love them - and they're really the customers! Also, the birds LOVE the suet pellets.

Dried mealworms are the non-live equivalent of live mealworms. Mealworms are the larvae form of the darkling beetle, which many commonly refer to as the mealworm beetle. Insects and other invertebrates are an important food source for many species of wild bird.

Some people are put off live worms because of their wriggle; in this case, dried alternatives are a good option. Dried mealworms offer a similar amount of fat and protein as live mealworms, but without the wriggle. If you are choosing to feed dried mealworms to birds, it is important that you soak them in water before you put them out in your garden. This will provide birds with much-needed moisture, which is naturally present in live mealworms. 

Insects are an excellent addition to your bird food selection. Live food is often left out of gardens, which means people can miss out on seeing several ground-feeding species of garden birds

When choosing your wild bird food, it is important to have a diverse range of food sources available in your garden or feeding area. This will attract more species of wild bird into your garden. For best results, we recommend including dried mealworms in your garden alongside other types of bird food. These could include straight seeds like sunflower seeds or sunflower hearts, seed mixes, suet pellets and suet fat balls, and peanuts.
