    I have used live mealworms before but this is the first time we have used the waxworms. I ordered both so that I could alternate between both. Our robin and blackbirds adored them filling their beaks to bursting then flying off to feed their young. I had to ration the starlings as the whole flock descended on us. But they all got their share. Will definitely use again. The package arrived very prompt in time for the grandchildren help feed our troop!

    Well packaged and in an easy to use container, a small number of waxworms were mixed with a larger number of live mealworms. All were taken readily by sparrows, robins and blackbirds.

    I was new to waxworms: they arrived very much alive and well the day after ordering, and survived a fortnight in their wood-shaving box. I put them out a few a day, and the birds loved them. Handling them was fine - they're a bit wriggly but plump and easy enough to transfer to the feeder.

    The birds adore this product and the waxworms are devoured very quickly. Clearly succulent and healthy I put them on feeders specifically for the tit family. They’re gone very quickly. There are quite a lot provided by Vine House in good condition and good storage facilities. Can definitely recommend them

Waxworms are the caterpillar larvae of the wax moth, which is part of the Pyralidae family of moths. The adult moths are sometimes referred to as ‘bee moths’. This name comes from the fact that wild populations are nest parasites that live in bee colonies where they eat gathered pollen and the shedded skin of bees. They will also chew through bees’ wax – which is also where the name ‘wax moth’ comes from.
