Benefits of feeding dried mealworms to birds.  

Dried mealworms offer similar advantages to live mealworms and come with added benefits. They can be blended with soft foods and seed mixes, such as Huskfree Advance with dried mealworms and Mealworm Crumble. For optimal results during the breeding season, we suggest using dried mealworms thoughtfully and consider moistening them by soaking them in warm water before feeding to young birds to rehydrate them.

Live Mealworms FAQs 

When is the best time to feed dried mealworms?

You might wonder about the optimal time to provide mealworms to garden birds. Undoubtedly, the peak period is during the breeding and fledgling season, although adult birds can also benefit. Dried mealworms are rich in protein and, crucially, moisture. Nestlings receive their liquid intake from their parents, making mealworms a significant aid in their survival.

Should I soak dried mealworms?

Soaking dried mealworms for 15 - 30 minutes prior to offering them is an excellent method to provide your garden birds with additional hydration. This practice not only enhances their digestibility but also makes it simpler for smaller birds or those with more gentle beaks to consume them.

How should I store dried mealworms?

Managing dried mealworms is more convenient than live mealworms for several reasons. Firstly, dried mealworms don't spoil, allowing you to store them in a simple air-tight bag or container without any need for ongoing care, such as feeding or regular check-ups.
