    These mealworms arrived very promptly and in great condition. The blackbirds go mad for them and cram their beaks full to take to their young. Robins love them too.

    Delivered within 2 days of placing the order, arriving well packed via Royal Mail. A definite favourite with all the birds visiting my feeders. I think it is very important to help out with live food made available during the nesting season. Normal Vine House Farm efficiency and ease of ordering.

    This was my 2nd delivery of the season, speed of delivery excellent this time (both Royal Mail). Unfortunately the packing wasn't great. The outer cardboard box wasn't damaged but the internal packing of the worms was sellotaped up though not enough to stop the worms escaping and some of them ended up on the kitchen table. Not ideal for me as they give me the creeps! The birds love them so I will continue to buy them.

    The birds went mad for them - best bird food ever! One female blackbird even started coming into the house looking for them and now her noisy, overgrown offspring are visiting to help themselves. Another advantage is that the wood pigeons don't seem to like them so robins, sparrows and blackbirds can enjoy them in peace. The only downside is that I find the little creatures quite endearing (they love their food!) and they're beginning to feel like pets. My neighbour says I should get out more.

    They arrived well packaged and wriggling. I've been putting them out during March between showers. This is so the tits and robin learn early and we'll hopefully have frequent visits from them throughout the year.

    They always come quickly and arrive fresh, plump and very wriggly. I use bran in shallow aerated tubs and sieve them every few day to keep them fresh. They keep for a fortnight or so in the garage. They’ve been a lifesaver for my Robins and Blackbirds this summer.

    Live mealworms are an absolute must for the birds: feeding parents and fledgelings alike absolutely devour them. They provide a mass of nutrients to the birds, as well as help to keep them hydrated - essential this year! Thoroughly recommend purchasing, during the spring/summer period at the very least. I will never tire of the birds coming to ask for them, or watching them feed: such a treat.

    Birds just can't get enough live mealworms. They adore them. I give them as a treat because they are more expensive than other bird foods.

    I think the packaging worked well. Arrived in good condition through the post and easy to open and close when serving a very grateful bird population. The word obviously got about because a Jay turned up only during the period of live mealworm feeding!

    Have to ration them, otherwise magpies & starlings would feast on ALL of them. Thankfully, got a caged feeder from VHF which keeps some back for smaller birds!

    I have to confess, at first, I felt a little squeamish about giving the birds live food, but when I put some of the mealworms on a suspended tray, the house sparrows flew in immediately, clearly eager to give their young a more nourishing foodstuff. There is a paucity of insects, so I felt justified in providing a protein-rich food of this kind!

    They are very popular with the robins & blackbirds and keep well in the fridge. The (new?) packaging also means they can be put through the letterbox (although try not to tread on the package as you come in through the door, as I did!)

    Bought some live mealworms has I can't keep up with all the bird's thought it would go a bit further aswell as the waxworms I keep getting, gosh the bird's go crazy, it's funny to watch the starlings with there young now there brilliant at catching I can play catch with them, trouble is all the other bird's struggle getting any, I try hiding them split into different feeling places, so the robin let's me know when it's waiting and a certain blackbird does, I seem to be out there hour's trying to make sure all gets a bit of something, I could go on for ever, The mealworms are fresh and come well secure, quality and good value.

Live mealworms are the small larvae of the mealworm beetle (tenebrio molitor), usually measuring between 2cm and 3cm. They are at the second stage of this beetle's life cycle, having passed the egg and pupa stages already.

They provide nutrients and hydration for birds and are ideal for feeding in gardens; they are made up of 40% protein and 40% fat, and have a high percentage of moisture which is vital for nestlings. 

The rewards of feeding live mealworms far outweigh any misgivings you may have about their wiggle. The benefits of feeding live mealworms to birds - in particular during the nesting and fledging season - can help them survive.
