Mealworms - The number one birdfood… from the number one supplier.

By Rob 4 years ago

The weather is just awful for the most part at the moment for all of us, and this makes the lives of your garden birds much more difficult. Most people are still feeding fat balls to help the adults keep their energy levels up... it is just so cold and wet. If you want to make a real difference to birds who are feeding young, in the longer term plant a hedge or wildflowers which encourage all sorts of live bugs that the birds can feed on... In the short term there is one solution that fits all (just about), and that is LIVE mealworms. Forget their dried counterpart (almost all are shipped into the UK all the way from China, and are nowhere near as good as their live counterpart) LIVE mealworms are best. This way your birds can feed live food packed with protein, fat and importantly water. This can really make the difference between life and death for the youngsters.
