Mealworms are a firm favourite with all garden birds.  When live insects are in short supply, they provide a high energy, high protein alternative. Support feeding. Offering mealworms is a treat, so don’t over do it. When autumn arrives, stepping up feeding gives them the energy they need to make it through a frosty night. Short winter days and long winter nights mean that small birds have to eat efficiently to gain the most benefit.

Offer the birds Fat Balls as another high energy food for colder weather

Birds become reliant on supplemental feeding, so once you start it’s now advised to feed throughout the year. Adult birds break up food before giving it to their young, so it is safe to feed during the breeding season.. You will see an example of them breaking up food in the video on the About us page.

NB: The packaging – A lot of research went into finding the most environmentally friendly option while still having the strength to hold the weight of product. You can put the bags into your home composting, garden waste bin or into your regular bin. It will take longer to compost at home, but will take approx 12 weeks in a landfill site. It is certified to the European (EN13432) for Industrially compostable packaging. 🐦

    These are fantastic! All mealworm and no dust. So much better than the ones in the supermarket. They are great quality and the birds in my garden LOVE them. I ordered 1kg and delivery was fast, the packaging is eco friendly and the bags the worms come in can be composted. Highly recommend these, and will definitely be returning for more!
