Live mealworms can now only be ordered by phone

We would like to inform you that, due to a strict notification by Google (Trusted Stores), we have been warned that the sale of live mealworm, which is classified under their terms as a live animal product, will lead to the cancellation of our 5-star Google Trusted Stores status.

Therefore, we have taken the decision to disable live mealworms from our website, so that they can no longer be purchased online.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. However, it is still possible purchase mealworms from GardenBird over the phone by calling 0800 6444 322.

You can visit the relevant Google page here, which details under the “Live Animals” section, their policy on promoting this type of product.

We have explained in the clearest of terms to Google that mealworms are a common form of bird food, and that many birds require them for survival over cold, winter months as a replacement for earthworms and caterpillars. Unfortunately, this was to no avail.

Should you have any further questions, you can send us an enquiry by using our contact form.
