These live mini mealworms are the larvae of the vegetarian Tenebrio Molitor Beetle which makes them completely safe to feed to your wild birds, espeically in spring and summer as these mini sized worms are ideal for feeding to young birds, fledglings and nestlings, and because they are smaller you get more for your money! Packed full of protein, they are supplied in either handy tubs or re-sealable bags. 

The mini mealworms in 40g, round tubs come with a breathable lid and a small amount of bran which has been added for the mealworms whilst in transit, and these ventilated tubs are suitable for storing the live mealworms in as long as they are stored in the correct conditions of a cool, dark environment. Alternatively, order a larger amount of mealworms in a bag which will be delivered in a woven polypropylene sack - so please ensure you unpack the mealworms once received, as the sacks must not be used for storage. Unpack the worms and transfer them into a shallow, smooth sided container and add some bran or porridge oats (we recommend that you do not keep the worms more than 1” deep). 

If you haven't used live mini mealworms before, then we recommended you start with smaller quantities in plastic tubs which can safely be stored at between 8-10°C in a cool, dark and well ventilated place. Mealworms can also be stored in the fridge. The reason for these conditions is because it causes the mealworms hormones to go dormant and keeps them from potentially morphing into a beetle, a well ventilated lid will also prevent your mealworms from becoming damp.

If you're new to mealworms it's a great idea to start with smaller quantities in tubs, these can be stored safely between 8-10 degrees Celsius in a cool and dark place.  These cool dark conditions prevent the mealworms from morphing into beetles.  Store in a cool dry place but not below 5°C, wherever you store them, make sure your mealworms don't freeze and are protected from frost, they must also not get too warm.  If you need any more advice on how to use or store these mealworms please do get in touch.

Treat for the birds ! Birds love the live meal worms and they are great for young birds. It€™s been especially useful this Spring when the weather has been so miserable.
